Eddie is shown quitting the group because Paul wasn't well enough to return to the group. In reality, Eddie left the group before Paul was made to step down and the Temptations recorded two singles with just four singers; Paul being one of them. See more »
When two of the Temptations are discussing their success, we are shown a date of 1964, but the car parked directly behind them on the curb is a 1966 Ford. Unlike today, in 1964, all new car models were still very closely guarded secrets and prototype models were kept draped at the factory until the release date, usually September or October previous to the model year.

The Temptations is clearly one of the finest music miniseries ever made.The casting is great all of the men(some of whom were unknowns) are great in the film, but the scene stealers is Leon as the group's lead singer David Ruffin. The songs and script are very good and the film is very heartbreaking in some moments. But all in all a great music movie.
