    The main plot for this movie is entertaining enough. The subplots though are distracting and nonsensical. I am not shocked that this started out as a play. The one dimensional over the top supporting characters go good on a live stage where you have to have them keep the audiences looking. In a movie though it just makes you wonder what the director was thinking. I am a big Tyler Perry fanThe main plot for this movie is entertaining enough.

I would pass for one of his quality DVD releases he has on the shelf. Expand

    the movie was ok, it was pretty herd to see though, and well its hard to belive that that could happen to anyone. i also liked seeing kim kardashian, she should be in more movies. i really dont think it was that bad.

    The film is flat-out ludicrous from beginning to end.

    Apart from its dramatic predictability, Temptation is a snooze because of its languid pacing and rudimentary camerawork.

    Temptation’s refusal to find nuance in its didactic worldview ensures that the film will ultimately only succeed for audiences already in agreement with it.
