Good Deeds

Tyler Perry lovers were certain that Good Deeds would be No.1 this weekend, while haters prayed that he would flop. The answer is that neither happened. 

Though he came in second getting beat by Act Of Valor, the $16 million Good Deeds made in its opening weekend is the second weakest opening for any film of his since Daddy Little Girls which made just over $11 million on its opening weekend. Not a flop by any means, but he's done much better.

There are no doubt several reasons why the film failed to live up to his usual opening numbers, which usually average in the $24+ million range, but can go as high as past $40 million, but perhaps people just prefer him in his drag act and don't buy him as a romantic leading man 

Personally I'm shocked that Wunderlust didn't do better. It's one funny ass movie
