Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that as with any Tyler Perry movie, Good Deeds explores themes of family, class, and what it means to follow your dreams. There's some sexuality (a few kisses, one brief love scene that focuses on the couple's faces) and strong language ("s--t," "ass," "bitch," etc.). Violence is limited to a skirmish between two brothers (one is left whimpering on the floor) and one near-attack in a homeless shelter. Perry's films tend to focus on grander messages about the nature of a happy and fulfilled life, and this one is no exception.
- Sexual Content
- A few mentions of "making love," a couple of kisses, and one non-explicit love scene. A character is shown in the shower (head and shoulders), and another is briefly seen in her bra and panties.
- Brothers come to blows, and one ends up on the floor whimpering. A man in a homeless shelter tries to attack Lindsey and her daughter. A mother slaps her son. Walter is perpetually bitter, angry, and hostile. He has to be held back from lashing out at several characters.
- Several uses of words including "ass," "s--t," "damn," "hell," "bitch," "crap," "oh my God," and "goddamn," plus insults such as "ho," "white trash," and more.
- Social Behavior
- Wesley's journey of self discovery is filled with valuable life lessons about honoring your parents but still following your own dreams, loving your brother enough to tell him when he's acting in a self-destructive manner, seeing past a person's income or job to who they are and how they make you feel, and being generous not just with money but also with time and kindness.
- Prominent product placements of Harley-Davidson, Apple (Macbook, iPod), and Porsche.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Adults drink in social situations, and in two scenes, characters are shown getting or already drunk. A mother questions why her adult son is drinking so early in the day, and he snipes back that she should be glad it's not a mountain of cocaine.
