Consensus: Tyler Perry's craftmanship as a director continues to improve, but his stories are still the same ol' hoary, pretentious melodramas.

Time Out

A ridiculously redemptive finale negates almost all of the preceding dramatic tension and resurrects a cloying Richard Marx chestnut to boot.

Joe Leydon

An otherwise unremarkable pic that takes what feels like a very long time to unwind a drearily predictable storyline.

Tyler Perry's Good Deeds is supposed to be a feel-good movie. Unfortunately, it takes way too long to make you feel much of anything.

Whose life, Wesley asks in the movie's narration, is he living? Judging from all the sterile office and apartment space and his mile-long face, I'd say Bruce Willis's in "The Sixth Sense.''

Good Deeds honors goodness, which isn't at all a bad thing, and it's not without moments of genuine feeling. But by the film's end, after watching a seemingly infinite number of dour close-ups of sober self-evaluation, I felt bludgeoned.

A simplistic and utterly-predictable morality tale.

There aren't a lot of laughs in "Good Deeds," and it could have used more of them.

Good Deeds, with its Frank Capra-gone-Good Will Hunting title, is lucky to have Thandie Newton, easily the most gifted actress ever to have starred in a Tyler Perry movie.

A few good scenes, a few solid messages...But he's such a dull dramatist and boring actor that the message isn't delivered.

Wesley Deeds is About to Discover the Person He Was Meant to Be. Not bad or great. It is a script with certain imbalance and some organizational issues.… More
