Retro Rewind: ‘The Fighting Temptations (Starring Beyonce & Angie Stone)’

Published: Saturday 23rd Sep 2017 by David

Welcome to another edition of Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature designed to celebrate TV and Film’s glorious past.

Today, we make our way to 2003, the year in which Beyonce propelled her then infant solo career into higher ground with the movie ‘The Fighting Temptations.’

In it, the singer plays a young woman ostracised by her local Christian community when she embraces a sinful, seductive and secular lifestyle but soon finds herself back in the fold following the death of a loved one.

An all star cast supported the performer as she delivered a performance supported by Cuba Gooding Jnr.

Watch below…

The movie impacted theatres on September 19th 2003 (four months after the unveiling of her debut album ‘Dangerously in Love‘) and swept up a sweet $32 million at the box office.

Favourite moment from the movie?

      I really like this movie, especially the music. It was funny.

    I thought it was entertaining when it first came out, and I even bought the soundtrack, but I read mostly bad reviews in the years since. Every Cuba Gooding and Beyonce fan should see it at least once. It’s not all bad.

    I watched this movie no less than 30 times when I was growing up. “He Still Loves Me,” and “Rain Down on Me” still knock to this day.
