I am a HUGE fan of The Temptations. Well to be precise the classic formation consisting of David Ruffin and also the Psychedelic formation which included Dennis Edwards but after 1971 when Eddie Kendricks and Paul Williams left I admit, I lose interest...anyway this made for t.v. film was first shown in America in 1998 but to my knowledge has never been shown on t.v. in the UK which was what prompted me to buy it on DVD when my American friends recommended it to me.

To be honest I have very mixed feelings about it. One thing I cannot complain about is the actors that play the five original Tempts, the acting is amazing and you really get the sense of the bond between the characters. The actors that play Paul Williams and David Ruffin in particular are revelations and should have been showered with awards. The story basically follows the group from their formation in early sixties Detroit and is narrated by Otis Williams character. It shows the true price of fame and the obstacles the group faced within the group like David's ego and drug issues. I personally really enjoyed the first section of the film as I loved seeing how the group got together and also the performances of the groups earlier hits like 'The Girl's Alright With Me', 'My Girl' and '(I Know) I'm Losing You'. All of the actors are amazing in the performance sequences and seem to challenge the spirits of their counterparts.

The trouble I have with the film is that its supposed to be based on a true life story but I think that thats very mis-leading.

Am a massive motown/northern soul fan & I absolutely loved this DVD. First saw it on a film channel and enjoyed it so much had to buy the DVD!
The cast are fantastic, especially Leon who plays David Ruffin.
Such a superb, talented group who had more than their fair share of tragedy .
Enjoy & tap your feet to the AMAZING MUSIC!

I have to admit I'm not much of a fan of The Temptations as a musical act, but I am a sucker for these made for TV 'true life story' mini series. Clocking in at a nearly three hours long, the story captures the rise and fall of one of the biggest soul groups in America, and is told in such an engrossing way that you won't even realise how long it is. If you like a good story and some decent acting, then this is well worth watching

Fantastic film following the creation of The Temptations, would highly recommend to any Motown/ Soul lovers! Spoilt slightly by end credits displayed halfway through the film. As I have viewed this film before I knew that there was more to come, but if this was your first veiwing you could easily think that it was the end and not continue watching!!

There`s a mistake in a cut on the DVD. I'm not sure if that's on all editions. When the 2nd part starts the credits are shown. That's a bit disturbing. I don't remember if that was also the case when I watched it the first time it came out on VHS.

AS THE TEMPS ARE MY FAVOURITE GROUP OF ALL TIME I THOUGHT IT WAS GREAT. A FEW UNTRUTHS MAYBE BUT BASICALY PRETTY CLOSE I REMEMBER JIMMY RUFFIN COMMENTING ON THE FILM AT RELEASE AND HE WASNT VERY HAPPY WITH THE WAY HIS BROTHER WAS PORTRAYED. AND FOR ME RUFFIN AND HENDRIKS WERE THE TEMPTATIONS AT THERE BEST BUT EDWARDS I THINK FITTED IN VERY WELL AND KEPT THEM ON TOP SADLY MOST HAVE GONE NOW SO LETS ALL REMEMBER HOW GREAT THE ORIGINALS WERE AND THE FOLLOW ONS AND THE PRESENT TEMPS BASICALY ITS ALL A BALL OF CONFUSION THAT IVE LOVED AND ALWAYS WILL SO WHEN MY TIME COMES I WILL HOPEFULY BE IN HEAVEN UP THE FRONT ROW WATCHING THE TEMPS AT THERE BEST. ENGLANDS NUMBER ONE TEMP FAN, IAN CHEERS
