It's Been a Rough 12 Days...

I’ll keep this short and sweet because it's been a rough 12 days for me, with what would have been my mother’s 67th birthday one day and the awful news about Whitney the next. I can’t even think about it... we’ll talk about that some other time, but for now I just want to be sure you’re planning on going to the movie theaters to see GOOD DEEDS this weekend.

GOOD DEEDS opens tomorrow, Friday February 24th, everywhere. It’s the opening weekend box office numbers that count in Hollywood. That is how they judge you, so if you can make it to the theaters this weekend, please do so. I never ever take for granted that you are automatically going to show up, but I tell you, I thank God that you do. I’m hoping that this time is no different.

I gotta say, this is a different kind of role for me, but it felt good to try something different. You know that there are many people who think I can only do Madea. As much as we love her you and I both know better than that. This is the first time I have ever played a character that is this close to who I am as a man and as a person.  

I think you’re going to love it. GOOD DEEDS is going to make you smile, laugh and think, and at the end you’re going to leave lifted and feeling good.

A friend of mine, who has always been honest with me, told me that this is my best movie yet. Tell me what you think. I’ll be on Facebook and my message board all weekend long waiting for the true critics to speak, and that’s you.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Love you and know that I appreciate you so much,

Tyler

    The movie was great. Your acting skills have appeared in Why did I get married but the audience was able to capture a different side of you in Good Deeds. It was really relatable to most people! I love you and I would really like to correspond further. You have my email stated above. I wish you all the success possible. Trish

    I too believe Good Deeds is your best movie yet, because it allowed us to embrace you in a totally different way. It gave me a snapshot of Tyler the man. I can identify with Wesley on many levels. Being a 3 year cancer survivor and a survivor of life's challenges that would have put the average woman in an mental institution, I thought I pretty much had my priorities in order. I walked away with two messages from the movie...1. Not to be so wrapped up in "myself & my problems" that I don't take time to reach out to those in need with my available resources be it money, time or just being there in whatever way I may be needed 2. I can only live my life for me, and that I will NOT be happy until I embrace my own dreams. Thank you for showing us a broader range of your genius, "keeping it real," and always delivering a life altering message.

    I agree with your friend. This is your best movie yet. I've always said that you are a person that I would love to work with, but this movie just confirmed it. You are very talented, and being able to see your work is a complete honor. Honestly your movies have helped me threw some tough times. If I ever get the chance to sit and talk to you I would go more into details. I would never for get the day I seen you on the Monique show, that day changed my life! I'm not just saying that for g p, you honestly did. So keep up the good work, because you are truly changing lives. Mine did, and for that you have a special place in my heart!

    Hi Tyler My mother and I have support you in everything you doing starting from your first stage play which is Madea family reunion to now. We just came from the movies tonight and we saw the movie Good Deeds your character was totally different from the character you play such as madea and terry from Why did I get married. The move was very uplifting and showed the problems that people face in everyday life. I love the movie. Continued using the gift God has bless you with. God Bless Stephanie

    i must say mr perry i just got home from seeing ur movie and the end there was a roaring round of applause so i applaud you for transitioning into this character i laughed and cried so real and excellent how mr deeds was this man conformed to what others thought he should be and how it took some one else to make him see what he was missing which was himself his authentic self and when he made a choice to break free from the bondage he was in he was happier than he ever was and at the same time this womans life was forever changed and he was attracted to the fact that she had the ability to be her self inspite of all she was going through i could relate to both characters but it touch on how people respond in relationships to one another it touched so many areas its funny i was not going to go because of the weather but i got a unction from the Holyghost and well i must say it was definately something i needed to see once again a beautiful ending even tho i knew she was going to be on that plane waiting for mr wesley deeds God bless you sir!!!

It is amazing how someone can make a difference in someones life. That is what touch me the most. Look forward to more of your movies and so I can keep building my collection.

    Dear Tyler I have seen all yours previous work and they were all good but I think and believe this is the best. I am so touch by it that it made my cry. I woke up this morning at 6am after about 3hrs of sleep, went to school had 8 hrs of class, took a test and came home. After I came home I wanted to do some thing for my self. I decided to go see your move. I felt so connected to you that it is unbelievable. All I want to do in life is be able to touch other people’s harts like you do. You are so right at the end of the movie when you said where ever it is you will find it. I really do believe that. Once again thank you so much for the work you do, and the difference you make in people’s lives. I hope and pray that I will get to do what I love the most before I go on to the other side, which is helping the poor and the sick, providing healthcare for all. I cannot express all my feelings right now. This is from the bottom of my hart. I don’t know what is going on with me, but I hope I am not going crazy because I have never felt like this before, especially to some one that I have never met before. May God continue to bless you. Thank you.
