When slick-talking New York City advertising executive Darrin Hill (Cuba Gooding Jr) travels back to his small hometown in Georgia to claim the inheritance his aunt Sally left him, he finds he must fulfil her last wish before he can collect - create a gospel choir and lead it to success. But with a town full of tin ears and a shortage of singers, Darrin is about ready to give up and head back to the city where he belongs...until he runs into Lilly (Beyonce Knowles). A beautiful nightclub singer with a voice that could rock the competition at the annual Gospel Explosion, Lilly is just the miracle Darrin is looking for.... if he can persuade her to sing.
Starring Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Grammy winner Beyonce Knowles, THE FIGHTING TEMPTATIONS is a rousing, music-driven ensemble comedy and non-stop entertainment for audiences of all generations. The film is directed by Jonathan Lynn from a screenplay by Elizabeth Hunter and Saladin K Patterson and a story by Elizabeth Hunter.
