The Fighting Temptations

Over the long weekends holidays, I happened to chance upon a very good and touching movie on cable tv, The Fighting Temptations, a romantic gospel comedy with great soundtracks that actually touched me and made me teared. The story line: Darrin(Cuba Gooding Jr.), a morally hollow and debt- ridden advertising executive in New York travelled back to his hometown of Monte Carlo, Georgia to cash in on an inheritance of his dead aunt Sally, only to discover that in order to collect he must first lead the local church gospel choir to success at a national competition, the Gospel Explosion. Desperate for money, he embarked on the nearly impossible challenge of turning a choir of lackluster parishioners into Gospel gold. Frantically, he searched for the best voices in town and found them in some unconventional places: the county jail, the barbershop, an R&B dance club, and all points in between. Darrin was about ready to give up and head back to the city where he belongs-until he ran into Lilly(Beyoncé Knowles), a beautiful nightclub singer with a satin voice that could rock the competition at the annual Gospel Explosion, Lilly was just the miracle Darrin was looking for only!If only he he could persuade her to sing! Along the way he worked to win the heart of Lilly and comes dangerously close to being redeemed himself !
