Audience Reviews for Tempted


Cliched, poorly written and screaming "TV movie". I honestly don't know why I sat and watched the whole thing. The only thing convincing was this woman's horrible children - and even then only as an advertisement for remaining childfree.
Unappreciated wife and mother goes to Hawaii to return the ashes of the woman who raised her, along the way "finds" herself, (not very well), finds her real mother, and has a romance with one of the locals. Ungrateful children and husband turn up in Hawaii, and she decides to go back to her life of drudgery because "that's who she is". Fantastic message for all women everywhere....
