Tyler Perry Learns About Real Life in ‘Good Deeds’ Trailer

Good Deeds embraces a timeless story framework: two worlds clash, both must change. Tyler Perry plays Wesley Deeds, a born-wealthy man with a good heart but no real perception of the world beyond the reality that has been built for him for as long as he has been alive. He has a good job, thanks to his good education, is involved with a good woman (Gabrielle Union), and enjoys a good relationsip with his good mother (Phylicia Rashad).

So, there’s that whole notion of things being not so great for most everybody else to which Deeds is pretty much oblivious. When he meets an impoverished woman named Lindsey (Thandie Newton) struggling to take care of her young child, Deeds gets a taste of what life is like outside his bubble. At first, he’s horrified. But as it seems, Deeds becomes infatuated with the beauties, excitement and dangers of Lindsay and her world.

Good Deeds is written and directed by Perry himself, and comes out Feb. 24, 2012.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
