Feb. 24: 'Good Deeds'

Tyler Perry movies hardly ever screen for critics, so I won't hold my breath for this one: He wrote, directed and stars in it. Perry plays a rigidly predictable man--whose last name is Deeds, sigh--who falls for a single mom (Thandie Newton ) just before he's supposed to get married (to Gabrielle Union). Doesn't look earnest and formulaic at all.
