Although Tyler Perry’s movie “Good Deeds” came in second at the box office this weekend by raking in $16 million, it came in at 1st place in my book…I loved this movie., the drama was typical but the storyline very much on point.
Walter and Wesley Deeds are brothers working and running a successful family owned corporate business. Wesley (Tyler Perry), the older and responsible brother, who plays his role as the good son is miserable, while Walter (Brian White) is a bitter alcoholic who is looked down upon by their mother (Phylicia Rashad).
All I will say is: Wesley Deeds is jolted out of his perfect and scripted life when he meets Lindsey (Thandie Newton), a single mother who works on the cleaning crew in his office building. Lindsey blows Wesley’s mind with her sass and outspoken nature, which indeed sends him in the opposite direction.
I love happy endings and was so moved by Perry’s performance. Okay, that’s all I’m going to say, you have to check it out for yourselves.
Good Deeds opened in theatres on Friday.
