Tyler Perry's Good Deeds
Tyler Perry's Good DeedsWesley Deeds (Tyler Perry) never wanted to be a CEO, but, the title was handed to him thank  s to his brother’s (Brian J White) impulsive nature and his father’s early death. As a result, he spends his nights working late and avoiding Natalie (Gabrielle Union), the upper crust fiancé he’s only vaguely compatible with. A few feet away, yet thousands of decisions apart, is Wesley’s night janitor Lindsey Wakefield (Thandie Newton), spending her evenings hiding her daughter in a broom closet and trying to avoid social services. In debt to the IRS and lacking a place to stay, she’s low on hope and absent options, at least until she parks in the CEO’s spot.

This chance encounter leads to a strange friendship. Wesley and Lindsey don’t find understanding with each other as much as a perspective each has been lacking. Because they’re not weighed down by social codes or fears of rejection, they’re free to be honest. Their frank conversations, sometimes quiet and sometimes heated, are what make Good Deeds worth seeing, but ultimately, there’s just not enough of them. Eventually, life gets in the way. There are problems at the company, problems figuring out where to stay, and problems with family members.

Sadly, the l
itany of issues coupled with some heavy-handed music forces Tyler Perry's film to devolve into melodrama, overwhelming its subtler moments.
