Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor : Movie Review

This may sound like faint praise, but I did not hate “Tyler Perry’s Temptation.”

Or, more specifically, I did not hate the first 80 minutes of “Temptation.” The final 30 minutes on the other hand? That’s when the movie flushes all the good that came before it down the toilet.

Up until that point, “Temptation” is as predictable and melodramatic as any other non-Madea movie Tyler Perry has ever produced. Subtitled “Confessions of a Marriage Counselor,” the movie is more or less Perry’s take on “Unfaithful” with Diane Lane, with a bored matchmaker (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) being enticed by a handsome billionaire (Robbie Jones) while her pharmacist husband (Lance Gross) is sitting at home watching football and forgetting her birthdays.
