I went to see the "great Tyler Perry's Temptation" because my sister insisted it was deep, thought provoking and had so many twist I would continue to guess the movie and I'd be wrong. First, I knew that was Smollett telling her story at the beginning of the movie, second the wanna be new lover was not attractive and did not have any charisma to pull a fly from a horse's ass and the movie was weak all around. Sometimes actresses like Ella Joyce who I love should just so no to tired movies. Tyler Perry continues to wow black people with his same tired movies. I for one am not impressed. Now some may say oh she is a hater and I am going to agree that I am. Here is why, I hate that I keep letting people talk me into watching his mundane, weak, cliché movies. Please people don't get me wrong, I give Perry his props for pulling up his boot straps and climbing the ladder of success. And yes there is a but-but can he obtain some advice from some other great movie writers on how to write with a twist keeping the audience in suspense and moving the movie along without losing half his audience. Just one piece advice to Mr. Perry just because you are friends with Oprah does make everything you touch turn to gold. I give Temptation a 2 on a scale of 1 to ten for an occasional laugh.
