5.0 out of 5 stars Silly but truly an inspiring movie March 2 2004
The movie might be a little unrealistic but it does have a strong message added with some humor. Cuba Gooding Jr. plays Darrin Hill who grew up in a small town in Georgia along with Lilly (Beyonce Knowles) who he had a crush on since day one but Lilly keeps telling him she's waiting for Michael Jackson to come along. Anyway, Darrin's mother was a member of the church choir and when she was outside of the church she performed in clubs to try and get a record deal. Paulina who i think is a secetary of the church claimed that his mother was an embarrassment for the church because the music she was singing was sexually immoral. Darrin's mother was giving a choice and that was to either to quit performing satan music at the club or leave the choir, she left the choir. Darrin years later was found working in New York at a marketing firm. Darrin literally lies to get want he wants. He misrepesented himself at work and at home by pretending that he graduated from a big university which I think they said was Yale and of course he said he graduated from high school, but that wasn't true either. Of course, Darrin's sins came back to haunt as his boss discovered these misrepresentations and Darrin was unemployed. To make matters worse, Darrin was in financial debt up to his ears and he constantly used up the limit of how much he could spent on his credit cards. The good news is (well kind of good) Darrin's aunt passed away and so he returns to his hometown to see the funeral which was the first time he had seen or talked to her in 20 years. Darrin discovered that in his aunt's will he is asked to take over the church choir and lead them into the gospel explosion, if he is successful he will be inherited 150,000. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars Corny July 11 2004
By A Customer
What happened Cuba?! As for Beyonce, she can't act her way out of a bag and will yoddle her way through a song (which is ashamed because she does have a decent voice) but is hailed as THE star of now which is why I had to sit through her performance in this film. Too contrived and too corny.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice lighthearted spiritual comedy. June 21 2004
If you don't take this film too seriously, you should really enjoy it. The storyline is good natured and the music is fantastic. cuba Gooding Jr. plays a hustling New York City based ad man who agrees to fulfill his great aunt's dying wish for him to lead her church's gospel choir in a state competition for $100,000. At first he's like a fish out of water but then he learns about what's really important in life. I'm not ging to spoil this one, you'll have to see for yourself.
LaTanya Richardson (Samule Jackson's wife for those who don't know) turns in a nice performance as the judgmental and overbearing church treasurer Paulina and Beyonce's protrayal of Lily isn't bad at all. Much of the remaining cast is a who's who of contemporary talent including the O'Jays, Angie Stone, Beyonce Melba Moore and Montell Jordan. Not a bad addition to te DVD collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars tempted 2 buy temptations?.... YES! May 18 2004
By Lb
Fighting temptations is a sweet, cool film, with so many amazingly talented actors who can not only act but r amazing singers too.
Although there are slightly cringingly corny moments the wonderful + light comedy of the film satifyingly over shadows it.
Beyonce adds a real sexy and classy touch to the film and the astounding sultryness of her voice is bound to hav u admiring her many a time. The funky and soulful songs not only makes u wana get up and sing and dance but go down 2 ur local HMV + buy the soundtrack!
The downsides r if ur not in2 gospel or singin, this movie is definetly not 4 u!
Although this is a real feel good movie all over, i did feel like there was Somthin missin.
Hope my review helped u make the right choice ***

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant comedy. May 14 2004
When I picked up this DVD, I don't think I knew what I was letting myself in for. When I watch/ buy films, I don't always tend to look at the cast. And although I knew that Beyonce Knowles was in it, I had no idea about the other brilliant stars of this film. I kept saying, 'Oh my goodness, its....' Which did get annoying for the people I was watching it with. The entire cast all had well suited roles in the film, which was exquisitely written and was complemented well by the music.
So to put it in a nutshell, this is one for the comedy lovers. I loved it, and I think you will too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Viewing For The Entire Family March 22 2004
By A Customer
I just finished watching The Fighting Temptations and give it a solid 4 stars. The music was great and I wasn't worried about my son hearing or seeing anything inappropriate. Although Cuba Gooding Jr. may not win Best Actor for this performance, he held his own for what he had to work with. Beyonce' is an excellent singer, which makes up for her "just okay" acting in this movie. There was absolutely no chemistry between Cuba and Beyonce' but the movie needed a good singer and a good actor to try and balance the tastes of moviegoers. I'm not mad at that. I would recommend giving this movie a chance for the music and positive message.
