Movie Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle - 8/10 by Mick LaSalle A warm comic story that's fairly engaging even when no one is singing.
Chicago Tribune - 8/10 by Robert K. Elder Breaks through as a delightful, surprisingly fresh comedy.
Los Angeles Times - 8/10 by Kevin Thomas A rousing, warmhearted comedy, as infectious as the gospel music it celebrates.
Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Scott Brown Makes shameless use of tried-and-true elements -- but it's hardly the same old song.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger Ebert Not brilliant and it has some clunky moments where we see the plot wheels grinding, but it has its heart and its grin in the right places.
Dallas Observer - 8/10 by Bill Gallo The plot's a trifle, but so what. Director Lynn (My Cousin Vinny) stages a series of seamless, ebullient show-stoppers that encompass every musical style from gospel and soul to contemporary R&B and hip-hop, and the choreography ranks with anything you'll find on Broadway.
New York Daily News - 8/10 by Jack Mathews A raucous gospel comedy that's as broad as co-star Beyonce Knowles' vowels and chockablock with foot-stomping, up-with-the-choir music that will have even atheists praising the Lord.
The Hollywood Reporter - 7/10 by Sheri Linden This culture-clash romantic comedy, scripted by Elizabeth Hunter and Saladin K. Patterson, goes exactly where you'd expect, but helmer Lynn, a comedy vet, gets it there with such infectious energy that you don't much mind the story's predictability.
Washington Post - 7/10 by Ann Hornaday May not be great cinema, but it's a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.
L.A. Weekly - 7/10 by Chuck Wilson Formulaic but infectiously happy comedy.
Variety - 6/10 by Ronnie Scheib Paper-thin plot serves as a pretext for rousing gospel numbers in The Fighting Temptations, which straddles styles and eras to get everybody's toes tapping.
Miami Herald - 6/10 by Connie Ogle Despite the increasingly annoying presence of the mugging, fatuous Cuba Gooding Jr., The Fighting Temptations pulls off what feels like a major feat: Its musical sequences could make the most hardened atheist want to go to church.
