Preview: Tyler Perry's Good Deeds (2012)


A regimented businessman thrust into his career by a family business turns over a new leaf when he must step outside of his comfort zone and let his heart guide his every move.

I know Tyler Perry's a selling tool in and of himself, but this type of self-promotion is far too crass.

  • Trailer: B-; C+


Although I probably won't catch the film, Thandie Newton alone makes this one look like one that could be worth watching. It still has far too many cliched elements, but it might be palatable diversion.

Not much has changed since the first trailer, though the film is already beginning to look a little stale and sermonizing without all the excitement and tension of a melodrama.
