Tyler Perry's "Good Deeds" RAKES IN $16 Million, Grabs #2 Spot

Tyler Perry's latest flick Good Deeds made $16M at the box office this weekend, finishing in second place.  See how other movies fared inside....

Tyler's Perry's Good Deeds starring Gabby Union, Eddie Cibrian, Phylicia Rashad, Rebecca Romijn, Beverly Johnson, and Thandie Newton opened at No. 2 with $16 million this weekend.

Though Tyler's "Madea" films usually gross over $20 million the first week, this is a good showing for a Tyler flick without his favorite character.  He used actual black women for this film.

Here's how the rest of the Top 10 Box Office turned out over the weekend.


1. Act of Valor, Relativity/Bandito Brothers, $24.7 million

2. Tyler Perry's Good Deeds, Lionsgate, $16 million

3. Journey 2,  New Line/Warner Bros.,  $13.5 million, $76.7 million

4. Safe House, Universal, $11.4 million, $98.1 million

5. The Vow, Screen Gems/Spyglass, $10 million, $103 million

6. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Sony/Hyde Park, $8.8 million, $37.9 million

7. This Means War, $8.5 million, $33.6 million

8. Wanderlust, Universal, $6.6 million

9. Gone, Summit, $5 million

10. The Secret World of Arrietty, Disney/Studio Ghibli, $4.5 million, $14.7 million

Saw it last night night and I liked it. It's different seeing Mr. Perry playing the leading man role but I enjoyed myself. What can I say....I'm a huge TP fan. Kind of saw him in a new light. Continued success to Mr. Perry.

The movie was actually pretty good. I really like TP...I only wish he was believable in his role with Gabrielle Union...it was way too forced but it didn't detract that much. I liked it.

It is seriously some small

It is seriously some small minded supposedly "EDUCATED" ppl on this blog. Have an opinion of TP movie...cool... but to say the man is gay simply because he dresses as an old lady (which is his primary money maker and made him the success he is today) is simply stupid. It amazes me how none of us truly know this man yet he's gay, he only "Helped Whitney's family to fix his image" (whatever that means), or he's the devil...REALLY! AND y'all know this how??? o_O So I guess Wesley Snipes, John Leguizamo (Sp?) and Robin Williams are all gay because they played roles dressed as women. Eddie Murphy (keep the jokes, lol) Adam Sadler, and Martin Lawrence too huh? I guess because he doesn't speak out about his girlfriend so that makes him even more suspect, huh? Even if he did speak about his girlfriend..you all would look at this as a cover up. Sad thing is only us blacks carry this mindframe. "he sholl played that role as woman too well, he gots to be gay". Stop the madness y'all! Seriously! Love his movies...Hate his movies...but there is no need to be so critical/judgemental and mean about it. Its starting to become bothersome that only on black blogs are the most meanest and have the most negative comments toward our own.

Flip Wilson portrayed a

Flip Wilson portrayed a character named Geraldine in the 60s & 70s. Flip Wilson wasn't gay. It was part of his comedy routine. Geraldine landed that brotha a home in Malibu & a lot of money, something that was virtually unheard of for Black entertainers back then. A lot of men portray female characters in comedies. Jamie Foxx played Wanda. Jim Carrey was Vera DeMilo. Dana Carvey portrayed female characters on SNL. To suggest that a man is gay because he portrays a female character is ignorant. Truthfully, if people knew the history of television and cinema, in addition to stand-up comedy, they'd know that Tyler Perry merely recycled the Madea formula and crafted her to suit the needs of his plays and films. I wish him all the best because Hollywood can care less about Black folks. If they aren't making "the white man/woman saves the Black man/woman" or gangsta films, they aren't making sh*t. If you don't like Tyler Perry's movies, invest in an aspiring filmmaker's project(s). Produce your own sh*t. Knowing that will NEVER happen, why brow beat Tyler Perry? N*ggas just want a reason to stay mad all the time.

To Tyler Perry...Congrats to

To Tyler Perry...Congrats to you. As you can see, as you are elevated in your career and endeavours, you have your na sayers, your hateful critics and your out right racist mentality people trying to verbally tear down what you have worked so hard to achieve. Because you are a man of high spirits and strong faith, I know you will continue to push forward and because you don't feed into the bull, you will continue to rise higher, and you will rise higher. When you have people hating on you it shows you are doing something right. The bible speaks clearly about this. Life can be a funny thing so you just have to laugh at your critics. I have learned a lot from the wisdom in your plays and movies and I feel that you would make an excellent preacher. There is an anointing on your life. At this stage you are getting your message over through your plays and movies but you belong in a pulpit. I watched you speak at Whitney's funeral and my daughter and I were in awe. I love you. Keep it coming. GOD is lifting you higher to inspire those smart enough to get it to rise higher through your example. Now, you critics, nay sayers and racist, you can have at this post but I say to you " You are in my prayers and with so much meaness, hatefulness and cruelty in the world you have targeted the wrong one." Love you Tyler. And you know if your foundation for your work and your words were not but a blessing to so many you would have folded a long time ago. Oh yeah, loved your advice from your you tube post about being successful. Keep it coming.

No, really Tyler Perry is

No, really Tyler Perry is gay. I think Madea is just his way of living out a fantasy that he can't do in real life because of his Christian fanbase. They would never accept him or would be ready to perform an exorcism on him. Sad, but true.

I saw the movie. It was ok. The story had some missing pieces with some of the main characters. If the background stories of a couple of ppl would have been explained it would have been much better. It was a little slow and boring at some points.

Yes the movie wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. I think Tyler Perry playing the leading role made the movie worse than it would've been if he castedsomeone else in that role. As for the folks who are saying we are HATERS because we are black and saying a black movie isn't good is STUPID. The thing about Opinions are, they are like assholes....every man (Black, white or purple) has one. So y'all need to STFD
