I heard about Paul.
They got the doctors and everybody in on it.
And you next.
Yeah, you. I sang "My Girl", "Ain't Too Proud To Beg". Look what they did to me. Paul's gonna be gone and that's your boy. Shark's eatin' his own guts, Corn.

Fantastic doesn't even begin to describe this movie!!!
"The Temptations" mini-series was an excellent film!! Terron Brooks(Eddie Kendricks), DB Woodside(Melvin Franklin), Charles Malik Whitfield(Otis Williams), Christian Payton(Paul Williams), and Leon(David Ruffin) do a fantastic job of portraying the fabulous five! This movie is based on Otis Williams' book and the storyline is incredible. Once I saw it for the first time, I was definitely hooked on it. Now I watch it at least once a week. I can't get the songs out of my head, and I am now an even bigger fan of The Temptations. The cool thing about it is that Brooks, Payton, and Woodside are actually singing the parts! I would recommend this movie to any music lover!!
