Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Into Temptation doesn't break ground as a story, even one about redemption. Even so, Coyle's understanding of the pastoral work of the parish priest is refreshing."

‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"A modest, intelligent film."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
