Tyler Perry’s 5 Best Films

Good Deeds

3. Good Deeds (2012) 

Cast: Tyler Perry, Gabrielle Union, Thandie Newton

Good Deeds focuses on Wesley Deeds (Perry) and how his almost-perfect life changes when he meets Lindsey (Newton). The two characters humble each other and learn what it means to have fun and live spontaneously. While the movie fared well in theaters (35 million grossed nationally), many felt that this was just another “preachy film.”
