As a young boy growing up in Montecarlo, Georgia, Darrin sings in the church choir alongside his mother (Faith Evans). He and his mum leave town after the choir discovers that she has been singing rhythm and blues in a local club. Twenty years later, Darrin (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) is a broke, junior-level advertising executive in New York City who has just been fired. Summoned back to Montecarlo when his only living relative dies, Darrin discovers that he stands to inherit her estate if he can revive the choir at his old church and win the annual Gospel Explosion. Against the odds, Darrin assembles a first-rate choir of talented quirky characters. He also recruits Lilly (Beyonce Knowles), a jazz singer and single mother who just may steal his heart and help him find himself. Rich with impressive musical talent culled from the worlds of gospel, hip-hop, and R?, the choir includes members of The O'Jays, as well as T-Bone, Melba Moore, Angie Stone, the Reverend Shirley Caesar, Zane, and Montell Jordan. Directed by Jonathan Lynn, the film also stars LaTanya Richardson, Steve Harvey, Wendell Pierce, Mike Epps, and Rue McClanahan.

Cold-hearted advertising executive, Darrin Fox, is promised a fortune in inheritance but only if he completes a task... He must lead a gospel singing group to victory in a competition.

Movie Reviews

Miami Herald - 6.3/10 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.
Chicago Tribune - 7.5/10 by Robert K. Elder Breaks through as a delightful, surprisingly fresh comedy.
Los Angeles Times - 8.0/10 by Kevin Thomas A rousing, warmhearted comedy, as infectious as the gospel music it celebrates.
L.A. Weekly - 7.0/10 by Chuck Wilson Formulaic but infectiously happy comedy.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 6.3/10 by Liam Lacey Gospel music not only saves Darrin's plastic yuppie soul -- Praise the Lord -- it also gives an otherwise wasted hour and a half some warmth and buoyancy.
Entertainment Weekly - 8.3/10 by Scott Brown Makes shameless use of tried-and-true elements -- but it's hardly the same old song.
Washington Post - 7.0/10 by Ann Hornaday May not be great cinema, but it's a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.
New York Daily News - 7.5/10 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.
