-Story: [4 out of 5] It seems like the whole group stories are in vogue now (i.e. the movies that are not centered on one particular person only but on a group. Single Six for example). If you have not seen the movie yet (even if you have) then you should probably watch the first few seconds of the video on the left. Those scenes were the beginning scenes of the movie and the filmmaker was definitely able to capture my attention with an intro like that. The greatness of the story is in that it is cute, enjoyable and highly informative. I love how at the end of the movie, the actors (resses) come together and tell their own opinions about what marriage is and how to sustain it.
The story reminds me of the happenings in ABSU university with the rape of one girl by 6 foolish idiots for a whole hour. May God help us
-Originality: [3 out of 5] You can definitely not fault this story on originality. This is my first time on seeing a movie by this producer and I highly believe that this movie deserves more credit than it is getting. Highly original, and very authentic. Can’t wait to see the writer’s next work. The movie as a whole reminded me of Ruth Kadiri’s Lady’s Men and Tyler Perry’s Why did I get married. (Please note that it is not everyday that I compare any movie to a Tyler Perry movie, that in itself is an accolade)
-Predictability: [3 out of 5] You and who was trying to predict the movie? I was too busy wondering what was going to happen next. I literally lived from scene to scene (except some Chika Ike and Junior scenes… sorry).
-Directing/Editing: [2 out of 5] As usual, I have a couple questions. (spoiler alert) First of all, “Why did no one ask about the guy who stabbed Junior?” “Why does it take a whole 5 minutes for the movie to start (part 2 and beyond)?” Editor o… Junior said in one scene, “The windows are the eyes of the soul” Sorry excuse me!!! The win… what? the eyes of the wetin? Taa, gerrout from here. Let me introduce you to my English textbook. And finally, in the scene where the guy is about to kill Junior, he walks in looking like the baddest of the bad, the toughest of the tough and the only very bad bad guy on campus. Then this guy walks up to junior looking all cool and what not, he pulls out his cigarette from the case and tries to light it. Lo and behold, o boy, the cigga refuse light o. The guy dey there dey fiddle with cigarette for a good 20 minutes whilst still trying to maintain his composure as a badt guy. Abeg, get out of my screen. Somebody call Pope Junior to teach you how to do it.
-Acting Quality: [1 out of 5] I was happy to see Maureen Ihua again.
***I advise you not to read this if you do not understand pidgin*** Ehe! You know say for every tori way dey go upwards, as long as that story be nollywood, it must to fuckum (eff up, that is). For this tori way dey here, the big mess up dey for the side of all these johnny just comes way the casting director take fill up the screen in the name of extras, o gini? (Igbo for what is it?). Why o why o why do all good things (well not all but most) have to have something terrible in them? Why do all good things come to an end? Omo and the amazingness (I know it is not a word, free me) of this movie came to an end as soon as this character walked in…
My own question now to the producers is… “Where did they purchase this razzite from?” I mean, in the whole arcade of wannabe Genevieve’s and Ramsey’s THIS is what they found? Sorry for the insults but the guy can’t speak well, he can’t dress well, can’t act at all (ra ra, ko si talent). It is just a triple double quadruple FAIL… (spoiler) when his character died, I literally paused the movie and did a happy dance. I have NEVER ever been so happy to see a character die. I was just hoping that he didn’t show up again in flashbacks. Now on to Chika Ike and Annie Macaulay. I think, in comparison with her acting in Beauty (yet to be reviewed) Annie did a much more convincing job. It seems as the days pass, I am beginning to doubt more and more Chika Ike’s acting capabilities. It all looks a little to rehearsed for my liking.
Before I over vex sha, I have to give a big shoutout to EMEKA AMAKAEZE, I swear, I have seen him in so many movies before but never has he stood out like he did in this movie. It was amazing. I mean, the guy can act nobody was questioning that before but he looked really good on screen sha (no sir, nollywood reinvented is not tripping. I am too preoccupied with Chukie Lynxxx at the moment. I kid you o, no take am seriously lol) John Dumelo and Yvonne Okoro were outstanding. Tonto was great. An outstanding performance from Ini, gerrit girl. Nonso was in his zone and did his thang. Artus, speech problem and all, was just too cute especially in the scene where he apologizes to Tonto.
-Settings and Costumes: [3 out of 5] I loved the setting and the costume and the setting and the setting and the setting and the costumes and the settings…. did I mention the settings? By the way, what was up with “Junior’s” hair.
-Video and Audio Quality [3 out of 5] It’s a miracle o, in this movie, I could actually see (and very clearly too) all the night scenes. Beautiful, impeccable video quality (US Standard).
-Soundtrack [4 out of 5] The soundtrack is good, very very catchy (I want to make it my screensaver… sorry, I mean ringtone).
