WESLEY DEEDS IS ABOUT TO DISCOVER THE PERSON HE WAS MEANT TO BE.
When bored corporate tycoon Wesley Deeds (Tyler Perry), whose father’s legacy weighs heavily on him, meets a janitor (Thandie Newton) at a low point in her life, he becomes intrigued. A morality tale that teaches us to go for what we really want in life, and not walk to someone else’s drumbeat, and also to take responsibility for your life and every person that’s part of it. Passable enough entertainment, but Perry should realize that drawing out predictable plot points does not make them seem more realistic or profound.
