Reviews
ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review What really stands out for me in this film, beyond the provocative use of multiple languages, is the acting of our female leads. Subtle yet effective, Abril and Cruz are charming, sexy, shy, and excellent in their roles...I enjoyed Don't Tempt Me. It is certainly not a film with anything especially groundbreaking, but the different approach to celestial turmoil is engrossing and almost fun. Still, the disc has its problems with the video transfer and the worthless special features, so I'm not going to give this one a recommendation for either purchase or rental. Somewhere down the road, if it happens to appear on one of the 500 cable channels available, that would be the best time to sit down and see if you enjoy this film.

Review Mark Twain once quipped that he'd "go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company." Of course, Twain might have changed his mind if he'd been around to see director Agustin Diaz Yanes's version of the afterlife in the saucy and slyly funny black comedy Don't Tempt Me. Spanish screen sirens Victoria Abril and Penelope Cruz square off as angels from Heaven and Hell vying for the soul of a down-on-his luck boxer (Damian Bechir). Although Yanes sometimes get lost in the thick of his own screenplay - we never know why this boxer's soul affects the divine balance between Heaven and Hell - Don't Tempt Me is finally so imaginative and witty that you forgive its' narrative sins of omission.
