    This film - like all the Madea-free dramas - could use more humor. Still, every Perry movie has its highs and lows. This time, the highs are a little higher, and the lows not quite so low. There is no faith-based message, but the moral is obvious: persistence pays off. show more

    This soapy effort about a prosperous businessman having a midlife crisis finds Perry working in the heavily melodramatic mode that marks his weakest efforts. show more

    While Wesley is both too good to be true and an absence of a charisma on screen, Good Deeds is very fair to its two main female characters even as they're both entangled with the same man. show more

    Simultaneously both archetypal Tyler Perry and another step in the direction of nuance and thoughtfulness for the filmmaker. show more

    What the film needs more than anything is Perry's alter ego, Medea – a rampaging bowling ball who might knock all these stiff, upright characters spinning. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Good Deeds is the first of the 11 movies he's written and directed to try a one-tone-fits-all approach. Sadly, that tone is funereal, and it's always a beat out of step with the rhythms of both real life and most movies. show more

    Newton's character is the only one we really become invested in. At least that's something. But Good Deeds leaves you wanting much more. show more

    Keith Uhlich Time Out New York

    Much cut-rate melodrama ensues, none of it particularly painful to watch, until a ridiculously redemptive finale negates almost all of the preceding dramatic tension and resurrects a cloying Richard Marx chestnut to boot. show more

    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. show more

    Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle

    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, and there's hardly a scene that wouldn't be improved by judicial trimming. show more

    Tyler Perry is a much better actor in such drama\'s as GOOD Deeds than a Medila. I enjoyed the movie although it was some what predicatible. I enjoyed the chemistry between the to two love interest. I would like to see him do much more serious movies such as this. See if he can get Oprah to star in one of his movies along side him. I hope that he gets married soon and finds a love to call his own.
