March 29, 2013
A few wild, third-act twists give Perry's middling melodrama some soap-opera kick. But all the finger-wagging sure does get tiring after a while.

March 29, 2013
Perry's ongoing disinterest in improving as a filmmaker is now seemingly part of his unshakable belief in himself, his insistence on doing his thing his way.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
March 29, 2013
If Perry has had one strength as a dramatist, it's been his willingness to empathize with villains as well as victims. In Temptation, he lacks even that.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
March 29, 2013
For rational, sane people it's bound to be considered one of the worst films of the year, but for seekers of wretched, glorious camp, it may be an instant classic.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
March 29, 2013
The mixed tones don't quite meld; While Smollet-Bell is fine, the broad comedy is so sporadic it feels out of place.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 29, 2013
Not even the stunt casting of reality star Kim Kardashian can improve this bloated, soulless and unexciting novella.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
March 29, 2013
Perry's film lags and limps along its two-hour runtime before finally going whole hog on one of the most dizzyingly weird final acts in recent cinematic history.

March 29, 2013
This heavy-handed melodrama represents one of Tyler Perry's weakest efforts ever, and that's saying something.
March 29, 2013
A ludicrous marital drama-cum-morality play from contemporary black cinema's most prolific multihyphenate.
March 29, 2013
And really, who better to shill for the institution of marriage than 43-year-old bachelor Perry, who uses homosexuality as a punch line (or symbol of evil decadence) and HIV as a cheap plot gimmick?
March 29, 2013
The first half is a functional (if exceedingly predictable) melodrama before devolving, just as predictably, into a cautionary cartoon.
March 29, 2013
Should've been left short and sinister. Embellishing the material with superfluous detail only manages to water down the movie's inviting soap opera decadence.
Full Review | Original Score: C
March 29, 2013
Tyler Perry's insane, inane Old Testament-style morality tale.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
March 29, 2013
Adding the no-talent Kim Kardashian to his sass and semonette formula was a mistake. Casting four dull leads was a bigger one.
