Quotes

[first lines]
Wesley Deeds: [narration] My name is Wesley Deeds the Third. I grew up fifth-generation Ivy League graduate. I can tell you my pedigree all the way back to the tribe that my greatest grandfather came from. I was born into privilege, groomed by my father to be a businessman, to take over his company, groomed by my mother to be a gentleman. I was told where to stand and how to dress, how to cut my hair, and what I would be doing for the rest of my life from the time that I was five years old. And ...

Amazing Film : Thank you for delightfully surprising me
9 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

I am "Mr.Deeds", so I can tell you right off the bat that not only is this very real - but for once my new friend Tyler finally made a respectful black film.

I am going to go see this a second time in the theatre, and I will buy a copy for home when it comes out.

I am very happy to say this was a great - an awesome film. Yes - black people have good jobs, are educated, and we do have normal life problems and this film reflected all of that and more.

Well done!

~~I have to say, again: this truly spoke to me. This is almost to the tee my particular tale, and it was a cold shiver to see it.
