Sin noticias de Dios (Don't Tempt Me)
Spanish filmmaker Agustín Díaz Yanes directs the high-concept comedy Sin Noticias de Dios. The title directly translates to No News From God, but its U.S. release title is Don't Tempt Me. The story line involves a balance of power between Heaven and Hell to determine the fate of washed-up Spanish boxer Manny (Demián Bichir), who has suffered a severe head injury. Heaven is represented by a black-and-white classy nightclub where everyone speaks French, but it is unfortunately low on souls. Operations manager Marina D'Angelo (Fanny Ardant) sends her head angel, Lola (Victoria Abril), to… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's all harmless fun, I suppose, and mercifully free of all the cant usually associated with fantasies of Heaven and Hell."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"Consistently clever and inventive on a level a little below the inspired."
‑ Bob Campbell, Newark Star-Ledger
"Bendito Infierno's characters crack and pop off the screen; you're caught up in their tussle even as you acknowledge its artificiality."
‑ Brent Simon, Now Playing Magazine
"A train wreck of half-developed ideas without a unifying thread."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"This doesn't intend to be a mystery but it sure makes one out of why the investors didn't require a re-write."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
"Manny is so uninteresting as a pivotal character that he's a black hole who sucks away our investment in the film."
‑ Ellen Fox, Chicago Tribune
"It's only sporadically entertaining."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"...undoubtedly a silly premise, but writer/director Agustin Diaz Yanes imbues the film with enough style and humor to keep things interesting."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Sometimes nothing is more irritating than forced wackiness. Especially forced wackiness with a supposed deeper point."
‑ Kim Morgan, Oregonian
"Bernal can't decide if he's making a Tarantino homage or an Almodóvar riff or an Albert Brooks tribute... and the wobbly sensibility finally knocks the movie's legs out from beneath it altogether."
‑ Robert Wilonsky, Dallas Observer
"A sultry, pretty thing with a few good ideas: in other words, stuck in limbo."
‑ Jami Bernard, New York Daily News
"An unfocused, overplotted, painfully derivative comic fantasy."
‑ Dave Kehr, New York Times
"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."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"A barely comprehensible mess ... Fun is something in very short supply in this would-be comedy."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"The film lumbers along with a confused logic and becomes so entangled in its own numerous subplots that it trips over its own leaden feet."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
