I really enjoyed the movie as I knew I would. I just Love Tyler Perry and everything he's put out. The man is just awesome and it seems like everything he touches turns into gold. He's truly a Godsend and I'm personally thankful that GOD has allowed me to enjoy his talent. I would say that anyone who has ever strayed from their relationship or thought about it should go see the movie it will make you think long and hard before doing so.

I rate this a B. Let me start by saying that I am not a huge Tyler Perry fan but enjoy some of his films. This story has been told before but I think the message bears repeating BEWARE temptation. You may just get more than you bargained for otherwise. The grass isn't always greener on the other side of the fence...even though it may appear that way. That being said go and enjoy.

Tyler Perry's Temptation may not be the best film ever made, but neither are any of those highly rated Woody Allen movies that I am always trying to figure out. Here's the reality: Over 75% of all reviews by critics (95% of whom are white) at major media outlets of black-produced movies or movies about black historical figures or main characters are NEGATIVE (unless they are produced by currently in-favor producers, apparently, not the producer of Star Wars).
One would doubt that Tyler Perry, with his edgy and stereotypical Madea connotation, would have been able to break this obviously biased streak. That said, his consistent insertion of moral tones into his movies make them unique and valuable, as well as his consistent employment of typically overlooked and spurned, but very good, black actors--who often can't play leading ladies or men in American films because of racism.
Go see his movies. You're not wasting your money and will enjoy your time. Ba humbug to you too, critics!

I liked this movie, but I didn't love it.
The movie opens to happy loving couple but soon things take a turn for bad when the wife is tempted to cheat on her husband. Her husband - a man she has known her entire life and been married to for six years.
Temptation told her that maybe she was not so in love with her husband.
Temptation said that she was no longer happy.
Temptation said she needs and deserves more.
Temptation saw a weak spot and took advantage.
Tyler did give a good story line; how often is the married woman the one being led a stray in movies. Hm, not often.
Overall- I thought the acting was fair. The plot was good and it had some cool twists. Tyler got some good shots of D.C. I was a little disappointed in the ending... I felt as though I needed a little more. The ending felt rushed to.

The movie was very informative. A wake-up call for those of us who think the grass is greener on the other side. Life may take it's time in getting you where you think you should to be, but slow and steady will get you there and maybe get you there a bit safer. I really enjoyed this movie. Thanks Tyler for another reality check. God Bless.
