Tyler Perry's Good Deeds Reviews

Page 1 of 2
John Hanlon
Big Hollywood

A simplistic and utterly-predictable morality tale.

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.

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

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

By Perry's standards, it's a high-toned production, which means it doesn't look as if were shot during downtime on a soap-opera set, but it's still as blurry as a fifth-generation copy.

Far more interesting in the context of his filmography than it is to actually watch.

Tyler Perry is no Douglas Sirk.

Boxoffice Magazine

Tyler Perry has finally achieved an odd kind of equality that heretofore eluded him: he's now just as mediocre and middle of the road as any other reliable hitmaker in Hollywood.

Drowning in tedious exposition, much of which is devoted to affirming the obvious.

Brian Orndorf

Isn't a well-built movie, but it's by far the least repellent feature he's put together, dialing down the screaming and seething long enough to reveal sensitivity about the icon that's actually quite pleasant.

Antagony & Ecstasy

It's in the upper half of Perry's filmography, at any rate, both in terms of conceptual rigor and execution.

Patronizing, insincere, and bloated with a disingenuous sense of narrative merit, "Good Deeds" is just one more example of everything wrong with America in the year 2012.

'Message' movie lacks humor to draw in teens.

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.''

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

A melodramatic slog riddled with laughable dialogue that wouldn't hold a made-for-TV-movie audience past the first commercial break.

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

Every Perry movie has its highs and lows. This time, the highs are a little higher, and the lows not quite so low.
