Details on home video releases of The Fighting Temptations...

If you found yourself wanting the music to last just a little bit longer when you watched this movie in theaters, you’ll be happy to know your wish has been granted. The Fighting Temptations DVD release features eight extended musical numbers. Some of these, like Heaven Knows and the incredibly imaginative Love Me Like A Rock (definitely one of the highlights of this movie when the historic O’Jays sing the ditty as a true barbershop quartet-complete with a musical razor), are complete stretched productions that fit perfectly into the movie. Unfortunately you don’t have the option to watch the movie with these extended segments-they must be viewed as separate elements under the “Special Features” menu.

Otherwise this DVD delivers the usual goods with deleted scenes, theatrical trailer, and previews of more Paramount titles. And if you want widescreen, make sure you buy the right disc. The full screen version is sold as a separate product.
