Watch Jurnee Smollett & Robbie Jones Tango In New Clip From 'Temptation'

Here's a new short clip from Tyler Perry's Tyler Perry's Temptation. That double "Tyler Perry" was intentional. His name is part of the title of the film, as is the case with his previous films. I wonder if he'll ever drop the "Tyler Perry's" that begins almost all of his titles. It might actually work in his favor. I'd like to watch a Tyler Perry film without knowing beforehand that it's a Tyler Perry film, because my reactions might actually be a bit different. I think there's a certain amount of *baggage* that's automatically assumed, when some of us (not all of us, obviously) see his name in front of the title of any film, and we might be taking that *baggage* with us into the theater.

Temptation

Here's a new short clip from Tyler Perry's Tyler Perry's Temptation.

That double "Tyler Perry" was intentional. His name is part of the title of the film, as is the case with his previous films. I wonder if he'll ever drop the "Tyler Perry's" that begins almost all of his titles. It might actually work in his favor. I'd like to watch a Tyler Perry film without knowing beforehand that it's a Tyler Perry film, because my reactions might actually be a bit different. I think there's a certain amount of *baggage* that's automatically assumed, when some of us (not all of us, obviously) see his name in front of the title of any film, and we might be taking that *baggage* with us into the theater.

Just a thought...

The dramedy stars Jurnee SmollettLance GrossKim KardashianVanessa WilliamsRobbie JonesBrandy Norwood, and Ella Joyce.

The synopsis again reads:

The film tells the story of Judith, an Ivy League-educated relationship expert who makes her living dispensing marital advice, but is so bored with her own marriage that she breaks her professional code and cheats with a smooth talking client only to realize she has made a huge mistake.

Smollett stars as said marriage counselor "Judith," while Gross plays her husband; Jones plays the "smooth talking client" who has an affair with Smollett; Williams plays the owner of the firm where Smollett practices; Brandy plays Gross' co-worker; and Kardashian plays Smollett's friend and co-worker.

In Perry's own words, the film

 is "one of the most provocative movies" he's made, "sexually and otherwise."

It opens in theaters March 29th, 2013.

Check out one of those "provocative... sexual" clips that help make the film what it is:
