Temptation

Tyler Perry's
Temptation:
Confessions of a Marriage Counselor 

 

So often times before I write a movie review I peep out  what other movie critics have to say about the movie. Let me start out by saying that reading their reviews are a waste of time for most of people. They are definitely not feeling the urban Hip Hop vibe which is what many movie going audiences relate to in a movie so they lack the insight to give commentary on your behalf. Lucky for you there is TheFlowOnline.com and Lights Camera ReAction. We see the movies through your eyes because we know that, for you, those are the only eyes that matter.

'Temptation' is another addition to Tyler Perry's Feature Film Factory where he seems to effortlessly crank out film after film, from Madea's wild comedic antics to thought provoking relationship dramas.

The film features Jurnee Smollett-Bell from "The Great Debaters" and "Roll Bounce"Lance Gross from "Tyler Perry's House of Payne" and "Our Family Wedding", Robbie Jones from the movie Hurricane Season with Forest Whitaker and Bow Wow. The movie also feature Kim Kardashian, Brandy and Vanessa Williams

 

Jurnee Smollet-Bell and Lance Gross play childhood sweet hearts Judith and Brice who move from their country up bringing to big city where Brice settles into a modest job of his life dreams while Judith struggles with supressing her own ambitions to fit into their modest lifestyle. She is soon mesmerized by Harley played by Robbie Jones, a web mogul who weilds is charm and charisma to lure Judith away her husband and whisk her away into a world of wealth and extravagance. What starts as late night creeping turns into the complete abandonment of their marriage. Unfortunately, everything with Bling isn't always real and the dream life is too good to last. As the saying goes... "One night of pleasure and a lifetime of pain." 

The movie captures the suggestive nature of office flirting while exposing the potential consequences of forbidden pleasure of office romance.

The movie  was interesting, passionate and intriquing. Although I did enjoy the film none of it's appeal would be lost if you caught it on DVD. For that reason we say Wait for DVD.

Unfaithful

If you looking to make a marathon of cheating films at your stay-at-home movie night then you may also want to see unFaithful.  

Diane Lane is a wayward wife and Richard Gere is her suspicious husband in Adrian Lyne's Unfaithful. Connie (Lane) leaves her suburban home on an errand, venturing into Manhattan during a wicked windstorm. On a trash-strewn Soho street, she literally runs into Paul Martel (Olivier Martinez), a handsome young Frenchman carrying a huge stack of books.

Connie has a bad scrape on her knee, and is unable to get a cab, so Paul invites her up to his apartment. Paul is quietly flirtatious as he gives Connie some ice and a bandage for her knee. Connie phones home and explains to her son, Charlie (Erik Per Sullivan), that she's running late. Before she leaves, Paul gives her a book of Persian poetry, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.

She mentions the encounter in passing to Edward (Gere), her husband, but it's clear that she's obsessing about Paul, and soon she's back in the city, with a pretext for calling him up. Soon, they are lovers, and they grow bolder and bolder in their passion. Edward begins to suspect, and eventually gets a private investigator (Dominic Chianese of The Sopranos) to follow Connie.

His worst fears confirmed, Edward decides to confront Paul, a decision that will come to haunt him. While the screenplay for Unfaithful is credited to Alvin Sargent (Ordinary People) and William Broyles Jr. (Cast Away), the inspiration for Lyne's film came from Claude Chabrol's acclaimed 1969 film La Femme Infidele. ~ Josh Ralske, Rovi
