Meanwhile, Dave (Johannes Maier) is a rich owner of a multi million naira company. He spends his time indulging in many different women and alcohol until he meets a woman whom he falls in love with. He hires her as his 'confidential secretary' with duties extending to the bedroom. Unknown to him, she has a live in boyfriend whom she stays with and fends for.

-Story: [1 out of 5] The story for this movie (if there really was one) was extremely haphazardly done. The story was beyond forward and some of the lines in the beginning were extremely unrealistic to the extent of being puke-worthy. In between all the things happening too fast and the viewer being beyond confused one is also made to deal with all the unnecessary and innumerous sex scenes. Yet in the end the dilemma was left unsolved. How is it that both Dylan and Dave look exactly alike? A question… left unanswered

 

-Originality: [0 out of 5] I can’t place my finger on one aspect of this story that I would consider accusing of being original. Is it the twin story? Hello… Ramsey Noah in “Dangerous Twins”, Genevieve Nnaji in “caught in the act”, Mercy Johnson in “My sisters tears”. In fact, Ini Edo now went and crowned the entire phenomenon as a triplet in “unforeseen”.

 

-Predictability: [0 out of 5] If you didn’t see the end coming then you were watching another movie.

 

-Directing/Editing: [1 out of 5] Lacks professionalism especially in the ‘quest’ scene where Johannes is supposed to be singing alone on stage and then shocked by the appearance of Tonto Dike from out of nowhere (you know now? The way it’s done in Hollywood)… well let’s just say it was done in a tacky manner…that and many many scenes. And I didn’t understand why every now and then Johannes’ character would claim to have written a new song and then come out singing some Diana Ross song, needless to say his voice was not that hot (in fact, it was extremely cold).

 

-Acting quality: [1 out of 5] There were only 3 actual actors in this movie. Tonto Dikeh. Muna Obiekwe (speaking of whom, needs to loose weight). And then the young lady at the beer parlor. Everyone else (especially Johannes Maier in my opinion) needs to quit acting or go to acting school.

 

-Setting: [2 out of 5] Ok

 

-Costume/Make-Up: [1 out of 5] Failed to cover up Tonto Dikeh’s tattoos, especially considering that she was playing the role of a Mary-Amaka (churchy female or S.U almost). Muna Obiekwe needed to either loose weight or loose the tiny tops. And if Johannes is to keep acting, it’s best they found a store for long people with suits that don’t look make him look so lanky.

 

-Props and Graphics: [2 out of 5] The gun shot was not well done

 

-Video Quality: [2 out of 5] Ok

 

-Audio Quality [3 out of 5] Good

 

-Soundtrack: [3 out of 5] Ok

 

-Musical Score: [3 out of 5] Nicely done

Sweetest Fruit, 4.0 out of 10 based on 4 ratings
