Much to the dismay of my friends and sister, I absolutely could not wait to see Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor when it hit theaters last Friday. I will admit, I’ve pretty much watched every Tyler Perry movie there is. Deep down, I know I shouldn’t pay to see them, because they’re usually filled with predictable plots, over-the-top acting and cliché lessons, but a girl needs an escape once and awhile. This time around he piqued my interest with a somewhat impressive cast (Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Lance Gross in the starring roles of Judith and Brice respectively) and a trailer I found borderline comical.
I figured the plot would be simple:
Boy meets girl; boy and girl fall in love; they get married young; girl gets bored; girl meets exciting rich guy, exciting rich guy seduces girl; girl betrays sweet yet boring husband; sweet and boring husband fights to get her back and the two live happily ever after.
And I was right … to an extent.
