Movie Info

The strain of juggling her responsibilities as wife, mother, and successful paralegal have worn Emma Burke (Virginia Madsen) out. Thus it is that Emma welcomes the opportunity to briefly take leave of her Boston home and head for sunny Hawaii. It is not, however, a pleasure trip: Having promised to honor the dying wishes of her Hawaiian-born surrogate mother, Emma had agreed to transport the woman's ashes to the Islands for a traditional burial ceremony. Leaving her husband, Mike (Andrew McFarlane), behind to care for their two children, Emma arrives in Hawaii for the first time since childhood, where she is reunited with her childhood friend Kala (Jason Momoa), the handsome son of her late surrogate parent. Against her better judgment, Emma falls in love with Kala, and he with her. Complications arise when Mike and the kids show up in the Islands, a the obligatory evil land developer rears his ugly head, and Emma learns the shocking truth about her biological mother. The made-for-cable Tempted premiered March 10, 2003, on the Lifetime network.

    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....
