The battle plays out over the soul of a pathetic boxer named Manny (Demián Bichir), who makes next to no impression in the film. All eyes are on the leading ladies and the jaunts through heaven, hell, and earth. Whether Abril's performing in a cabaret or Abril is eating lunch in her waitstaff's uniform, this bizarre production keeps you wondering, well, what the hell is going on in this movie?
Ultimately it's as nonsensical as Pauly Shore's career, but Don't Tempt Me is lovely eye candy, despite the unequalled dearth of acting ability displayed by Cruz. The metaphysical message of Don't Tempt Me is far less relevant than even Dogma, but at least it's got a couple of cute chicks in it. Abril's great in just about everything, after all.
Aka Sin noticias de Dios.
