In terms of Perry's oeuvre it's surprisingly light on the cheesy melodrama.

An entertaining film with Perry in the lead, but the acting honors are stolen by the supporting cast

Good Deeds has a Hollywood gloss very much in keeping with its San Francisco settings and attractive cast.

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.

[Tyler Perry's Wesley] is Prince Charming for a prospective audience of women who are less enchanted by rippling abs than by kindness and responsibility.

Perry's considerate plotting is deliberate, perhaps even overlong, but with an attuned sense of people's evolving feelings and relationships.

Although the script is flawed and filled with melodramatic moments that warrant laughter, Perry's loyal fan base will be engaged by this "Pretty Woman" meets "The Pursuit of Happyness" mash and leave theaters entertained.

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.

A simplistic and utterly-predictable morality tale.

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

The melodramatic film has numerous light and comical touches, and the performances are uniformly good. The film's pace, however, has the consistency of molasses.

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

'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.''

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