“Good Deeds” another Tyler Perry mishap
I had to LOL at this review it’s better than the movie.
Wesley has a hot fiancée (Gabrielle Union) and a disapproving mother with ice water in her veins (Phylicia Rashad, deserving much better), a ritzy apartment with an awesome shower and a predictable, button-down lifestyle that makes him seem more like a WASP pensioner than a hip urbanite brother. Wesley uses stilted phrases like “burning the midnight oil” when describing his office toils, while wondering aloud who the singer “two p.a.c.” is.
Enter pretty single mom and lively free spirit Lindsey (Thandie Newton), who has fallen on hard times but luckily can still afford an iPod and eyeliner. She’s the night cleaner in Wesley’s office, sneaking her adorable 6-year-old in to snooze in the janitors’ closet following their eviction for missing too many rent payments. Lindsey explains to Wesley she traded nursing school for a mop and pail after her husband died in “eye-rack.”
This upsets Wesley. We know this because he removes his glasses; Perry’s favourite way to convey his character’s concern, puzzlement, joy and torment. He whips those things off more often than Clark Kent.
