As he prepares to will his fortune to his beautiful, adoring young wife, Lilly, he begins to wonder if she really deserves it. In order to test her loyalty, he befriends a handsome young man, Jimmy Mulate, and offers him $40,000 to tempt his wife. Jimmy refuses at first, until he meets Lilly, then he's hooked. He makes his play for her and she refuses; she really is loyal to her husband Charlie. But when Charlie's secretary tells Lilly about the scheme she becomes infuriated, invites Jimmy back to her house, and sleeps with him. Unbeknownst to the lovers, Charlie has had a surveillance expert wire the house, and now he knows everything.

Intriguing
29 May 2005 | by (Brussels) – See all my reviews

Well,as i don't have a TV yet in my new place i rent movies pretty much and i picked Tempted today. The combination of Burt Reynolds and Saffron Burrows in the same movie made me wonder how it would be like and the story looked interesting so i had a go and must say i quite liked it...In fact i think i want to see it again to have a closer look at it but so far so good. It's one of those movies where you need to scratch your head to fully understand the motivation of the characters and after you see it, you are still trying to figure it out:why did he/she do that? The whole cast is interesting but i must say that Burt Reynolds was a surprise as we don't see him that often in movies anymore and it's disturbing me.. but i still don't know if it's in a good or bad way... His character in the movie being obsessive might as well fit the fact that we are not used to see him acting that way.. Saffron Burrows's character Lilly is enigmatic and as far as i am concerned she does a pretty good job. And Peter Facinelli is the victim in all this. Never saw him before but he convinced me pretty much even tho i was also distracted by his good look..

What i liked about the movie and makes it interesting is the improvisation of the actors.It's unusual and hard,so i give an A+ for that.

The movie was shot in New-Orleans,it gives a mysterious and dangerous aura to it..Seems like you can feel the moisture if you know what i mean..

Well,see it for yourself is my advice,you might be amazingly surprised.
