Critic Reviews of "The Fighting Temptations"Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.comSeptember 24, 2003
You may not be dancing in the aisle, but at least you won't be tempted to flee the theater.Ebert & RoeperSeptember 22, 2003
This is an exhilarating musical -- but it's dragged into Thumbs Down territory by a dreadful story that creaks along between the rousing gospel numbers.Washington PostSeptember 19, 2003
The only real question in this flaccid narrative ... is when everybody will stop talking and start singing again.Washington PostSeptember 19, 2003
May not be great cinema, but it's a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.Toronto StarSeptember 19, 2003
Has practically nothing to recommend it save its music: Take that away and Jonathan Lynn's movie is as ordinary as an unsold TV pilot episode. But what music.Seattle TimesSeptember 19, 2003
The Fighting Temptations exists for its rousing gospel soundtrack, which is at times so good that you can forgive the movie its flaws.Common Sense MediaDecember 28, 2010
Great music, mediocre plot and acting.ColeSmithey.comJune 14, 2009
The indifferent gospel music that permeates the movie never solidifies with the dramatic might that the genre is known for...Christianity TodaySeptember 26, 2006
Although there are plenty of positive, feel-good elements to this movie, they are outweighed by missed opportunities to do something more valuable.Arkansas Democrat-GazetteJanuary 27, 2005
...the plot's stupid, the writing's bad, the acting is barely professional, but the movie isn't evil.Looking CloserJanuary 15, 2005
You might think this prodigal would learn to take responsibility for his lies ... or humbly accept the consequences of his crimes and change. Nope.Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)June 25, 2004
As a romantic comedy...neither exceptional nor groundbreaking. But as a musical, the movie bursts with foot-stomping, arm-swaying, finger-snapping gospel music.
