Consensus: More Hellish than it is Heavenly, Agustín Díaz Yanes' black comedy about the Earthly duel between two angels doesn't have enough genuine laughs to support its far-fetched premise.

Andrew Sarris
New York Observer

It's all harmless fun, I suppose, and mercifully free of all the cant usually associated with fantasies of Heaven and Hell.

Consistently clever and inventive on a level a little below the inspired.

Bendito Infierno's characters crack and pop off the screen; you're caught up in their tussle even as you acknowledge its artificiality.

Manny is so uninteresting as a pivotal character that he's a black hole who sucks away our investment in the film.

It's only sporadically entertaining.

...undoubtedly a silly premise, but writer/director Agustin Diaz Yanes imbues the film with enough style and humor to keep things interesting.

A sultry, pretty thing with a few good ideas: in other words, stuck in limbo.

New York Times

An unfocused, overplotted, painfully derivative comic fantasy.

As tempting as it is to describe the level of humor in Don't Tempt Me as hellish, that's probably giving the movie more credit than it deserves. Although describing anything in this dark comedy as heavenly is even more of a stretch.

The relative surrealistic element of the movie is what made it interesting. The rest was ok. I like it when Cruz doesn't play the pretty girl.

It's a Tarantinoesque telling of a good angel and a bad angel who fight for the soul of a boxer. I found it interesting and a bit weird, but overall i… More

Victoria Abril and Penelope Cruz get sent by heaven and hell respectively, to win the soul of a sad, weak woman-beating loser. Apparently heaven is a bit like… More

Great movie! Penelope and Victoria are absolutely a great pair of characters. In this film, one is good, and the other supposedly bad. Despite the line of… More
