"No Good Deed" movie quotes tell the story of a woman with children who becomes the victim of a home invasion. The crime thriller was written by Aimee Lagos and directed by Sam Miller. "No Good Deed" opened in theaters in the United States on September 12, 2014.

In "No Good Deed," wife, mother and former district attorney Terry (Taraji P. Henson) says goodbye to her husband, who is leaving to visit family, and settles into the house for a quiet night. While feeding her daughter, Terry is surprised by the door bell, where she meets Colin (Idris Elba). Unbeknownst to her, Colin just escaped from prison custody where he was recently denied parole for violent tendencies. Colin asks to use her phone but soon disappears.

Next, Terry discovers that Colin has broken into her home and is now holding her and her two small children hostage. In the moves that follow, Terry and Colin play a very smart game of cat and mouse with Terry fighting to keep herself and her children safe from this mad man.
