I love TP like the rest of the black community. I'm 53 years old and black but unlike the majority on here I did not like the movie. It was so predictable. KK was horrible. What a slow waste of two hours.

Funny how I've seen all these negative reviews especially about a film by a black director, yet Silver Linings nearly knocked me out (thank God for emails and work I did during that snore fest). This movie was riveting, beginning to end. And I'm not the only one who thought so-the entire audience was equally diverse and intrigued. I was literally on the edge of my seat and while I'll admit that Perry has had some strange flops in the past, this is not one of them. Intriguing, morally responsible, captivating, Temptations really drives home the message of all that glitters isn't nice. The way he slowly developed Harley's character was brilliant-even Judith acknowledged that he had a mean streak when she did her unbiased assessment of his personality test. We slowly see that characteristic building even as Harley maintains a certain vulnerability, and we question what's real and what's fantasy in his diatribe about his past life.
Perhaps it takes an intelligent viewer to appreciate the subtle nuances that Perry has embedded throughout this masterpiece, so I can understand if it's not for everyone. For those looking to be entertained with lessons of morality and social responsibility masterfully intertwined, this is a great film.

Despite this negative review, I am still going to pay my money to see the movie and support Perry. It's funny how this movie which seems to have a good moral message is bashed. While rubbish like Silver Linings with all its's cussing and very vulgar language is praised. Some people in society are just morally warped.

I disagree with this movie review. The film had several messages in which the audience could walk away feeling inspired in some way. Of course, no one is perfect, but it was more than the issue of cheating. It was also to get the attention of our youth in that the decisions/choices you make can and will change your life forever.

I am absolutely appalled at the negative reviews I've come across this morning. The Marriage Counselor was an excellent film. The intro was great, the plot was amazing and moreover than that, it taught a very valuable lesson to many out there: Don't get caught up in an illusion. They may appear enticing, desirable and impossible to resist. However the truth is they are your worst nightmare. It is only an illusion!

I agree to disagree. The movie served its point. It actually makes you never want to take on temptation. The end.

I completely disagree with this movie review. I just saw this movie and I must say I really did enjoy it. It was a good movie. It had a goo story line and surprisingly Kim K. did a fairly good job acting eventhough playing the role she did wasn't much of a stress from who she really is. But outside of that it was definitely worth the money to me. This movie review was entirely too harsh and completely just undermines the message and the plot o the story. This movie reflect real life and it really good....at least in my opinion.

Sidenote: Any movie that Tyler Perry writes/directs/produces will give some sort of spotlight to religion (Christianity).

Can someone please refund me my $10 I just spent on this made for TV Lifetime movie that somehow made it to the big screen. I am a fan of Tyler Perry but this movie is pure garbage. I could of came up with this script out of my butt.

In all seriousness Tyler Perry makes horrible movies. I don't care how much $ they make...he writes like he took a screenwriting class at a junior college. Predictable and cliche.

The movie was an amazing depiction that will hopefully contribute to the eye opener our society needs to decrease the rising divorce rate. Despite thoughts of Kim Kardashian I must say Tyler Perry brought out the best in her because her acting was excellent! The best movie I have ever seen because it serves as a benefit and has value to those who take heed!
