Whose life, Wesley asks in the movie's narration, is he living? Judging from all the sterile office and apartment space and his mile-long face, I'd say Bruce Willis's in "The Sixth Sense.''
Wesley Morris, Boston Globe  full review
There aren't a lot of laughs in "Good Deeds," and it could have used more of them.
Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic  full review
An otherwise unremarkable pic that takes what feels like a very long time to unwind a drearily predictable storyline.
Joe Leydon, Variety  full review
Good Deeds honors goodness, which isn't at all a bad thing, and it's not without moments of genuine feeling. But by the film's end, after watching a seemingly infinite number of dour close-ups of sober self-evaluation, I felt bludgeoned.
David DeWitt, New York Times  full review
Good Deeds, with its Frank Capra-gone-Good Will Hunting title, is lucky to have Thandie Newton, easily the most gifted actress ever to have starred in a Tyler Perry movie.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly  full review
Every Perry movie has its highs and lows. This time, the highs are a little higher, and the lows not quite so low.
Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News  full review
Where's Madea when you need her?
Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter  full review
Good Deeds is more proof that Perry is a crude dramatist.
Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail  full review
A melodramatic slog riddled with laughable dialogue that wouldn't hold a made-for-TV-movie audience past the first commercial break.
