Quite sad and pensive yet the acting raises this film to a very high level of GREAT. There's no laughter, but many tears. Silent tears. Sisto and Chenowith are both just brilliant and believable in their roles. My favorite of Sisto's many roles.

Forget everything you thought you knew about Kristin Chenowith. It's almost like she's a different person here. It's a phenomenal transformation. The always dependable Sisto turns in another underrated performance. This film has great Christian themes, but due to language and scenes of nudity and pornography (none of it gratuitous, all serving the story), it won't likely reach a Christian audience. One of the most heartbreaking indie dramas I've ever seen. Bravo to everyone involved.

I new what was going to happen as soon as I saw brandy running scared. The plot is terrible with no suspense. The occasional little pharmacy granny for comic relief was the best part of the movie but even her served to story line base and was just for comic relief. I expected more but I guess Tyler Parry isn't doing his best these days with a bad Alex Cross movie. He should stick to Medea stuff.

A heart-rending movie about a girl who seeks for redemption and a priest who couldn't help himself but become involved with his congregant and try to solve her problem. Jeremy acted well in the movie.

Jeremy Sisto plays an understated priest very well. He seemed comfortable with the faith depicted in the film and I found that refreshing. There is no love for or condemnation of the Catholic Church and that's also refreshing. Into Temptation (a bad title by the way) shows the Church plays an important role in people's lives and priests struggle with duty, obligation, loyalty, politics like everyone else but with a higher purpose. I had not planned to watch this movie but was drawn in when it came on after something else I watched on cable. I hadn't even planned to watch another movie so that tells you something about it's intrigue. It's very good.

I quite enjoyed this quiet little film until the ending left me hanging. I guess we can surmise what happened . . . but a "tiger or the lady" ending isn't what this film should have had.

This movie is painfully boring. I love Jeremy Sisto and usually enjoy Kristin Chenoweth, but this is just awful. There's very little plot, and what little there is, is very forgettable. The acting is very wooden and surfacey and I really don't think I'll remember anything about this movie within a few days. The synopsis definitely makes this sound a lot better than it is.

The best part is the understated humor. Just o.k. otherwise, but pretty interesting. The main character (the priest) is very likeable.

I started watching this late one night and enjoyed it so much that I recorded it to finish later, which I rarely do. Finished watching it and its really good! Not your typical Hollywood movie to be sure, but if you're in the mood for something more thoughtful and eclectic I think you'll enjoy it.

Really nice. At first I found it slow, but then got interested in it.

A compelling indie drama which also manages to be funny and suspenseful. It relies heavily on the acting from the not-so-well-known cast. Jeremy Sisto is surprisingly good and is almost unrecognizable in the lead role.

Nice movie with a nice plot. Nothing big, a few good jokes and some dramatics scenes make this one enjoyable to watch.

The twist in climax was not satisfactory,but the movie keeps you engaged

We watched this last night, but I'm still not sure what to think of it. Parts of the story were well constructed and moving, but other parts seem misplaced and were left dangling. Jeremy Sisto was exceptional in his role as Father John.

Quite an interesting and strange movie. I watched it the other night and while I liked the story and much of the plot, much of the content was unnecessary (extremely sexual)... But other than that it was pretty cool. The ending, for me, was very unsatisfactory though. It just left too much hanging. The focus was more on the story and flow of the movie rather than a cohesive and solid ending. It wasn't totally bad or anything, but that kind of destroyed the whole movie for me. Catholic theology really bothers me too... Anyone else seen this? Thoughts? Comments?

Brilliant little Indie film. A must see for Jeremy Sisto's amazing performance.

This movie is rather slow and pointless. I was really expecting so much more.

Not sure why the old girlfriend was tossed in there. Was okay. But enough with the priests already.
