I don't understand all of the negative criticism. There are MUCH worse films than Temptation. Movies are supposed to entertain and Tyler succeeded. I thought he told a seductive story in a tasteful manner. I left the theater thinking about the choices that I made in my own life. The movie also reminded audience members to think carefully about who they allow into their lives. Thus, Perry did more than entertain, which gives his movie more value.
I do think Perry should hone his skills in character development and lighting. I could not see Brice for a large portion of the movie :-/ Nonetheless, the hyper-criticism needs to stop. If caricatures can exist in Oscar winning films like Django, then why dismiss Tyler Perry's efforts. I see an Oscar nomination in the future :-) And I'm not being sarcastic. Perry is capable of producing quality work, he just needs to invest in the craft more. How many other people are doing what he's doing? He deserves much more respect.

Mr. Perry hit a home run in this movie. I enjoyed it because it dealt with real issues that can plague a relationship if one doesn't do what they did to get someone to keep them as well. And, it goes to show that you never really know someone. People do change. I liked the way Mr. Perry dealt with sensitive issue once again like HIV. It wasn't about homosexuality. That was a plus. I could go on but, you get the message --- it's a movie most should see.
P.S. -- Vanessa Williams had one of the best lines in the movie near the end... I'm still laughing.

THIS MOVIE WAS GREAT. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE FUNNY IF THE FUNNY FATHER WAS IN THE MOVIE LIKE THE PLAY "MARRIAGE COUNSELOR". PALMER WILLIAMS JR WOULD HAVE SET THIS MOVIE OFF! LOL! OVERALL IT KEEPS YOU ON THE END OF YOUR SEAT.

This was an AWESOME movie. As this movie relates to the "real" happenings of our generation today, it reveals the TRUTH! As I watched this movie, I began to pray because as a generation of "casual sex" is alive, there is not enough viewing of what the end may be. For instance, we must know that our decisions now may affect us for the rest of our lives. The plot and setting of this movie is just what we all need to know. Hats off to Tyler Perry again!!

It's the same subject plot just from a different point of view. He needs more subject matter before I go and see anything by Tyler Perry again. Wait for the bootleg.
