-Story: [0 out of 5] Everyone who has seen this movie can definitely attest to the fact that there is no significant train of thought that a viewer can point to and say… “yes! this is the story line of the movie”, yet most who watched this movie still enjoyed it. This is usually due to one of two things (or both of them): either the sex scenes or the humor. I’m pretty certain that if I were to take a poll on the gender of folks who really liked this movie, there would be more men than women. Most men were just into seeing Mercy Johnson in all her figure 8 glory, seduce the living daylight out of both man and woman alike. Other viewers just liked the comedy… and like most Nigerian comedies there was really no defined storyline for this movie. To add to the nonexistent storyline was the inconclusive ending. At the end, no one tells you the reason for all of Mercy Johnson’s acts…. she basically just ups and leaves.
-Originality: [2 out of 5] The ‘corporate maid’ concept is one I haven’t exactly seen in a movie before (although there was something close to it in the movie “Beauty“), not to mention that this movie took a different spin.
-Predictability: [2 out of 5] Give or take
-Directing/Editing: [2 out of 5] It’s a two part movie so I commend you but the directions were not so amazing especially for Van Vicker. Why didn’t someone tell him to give some kind of reaction after he found out that his wife had slept with a woman? The guy did not react a wink… he just acted like someone had just told him that his wife likes banana flavored gum more than mint. The first part of this movie seemed like a drag but I guess it was a ‘necessary drag’ (if there’s such a thing). The background needed to be established one way or the other.
-Acting quality: [3 out of 5] Mercy Johnson killed it… was there really ever a point in this girl’s career where she wasn’t… how do I say… KILLING IT? Amazing… in fact, I’m pretty certain that if I was a guy and I was watching this in a cinema (I’m talking, IMAX, surround sound and maybe 3D)… I would have been seduced too. Don’t get it twisted though, there are really no explicit over the top, Jim Iyke and Nikki Samonas in “My First Wife” type sex scenes in this movie… it’s just a bunch of teasing and seducing and tinz. I miss THIS Oge Okoye. I am so sick and tired of this 2010s Lady Gaga’d up Oge Okoye that does the same role in every movie. Oge did an amazing job and had amazing chemistry with Van Vicker who, disregarding his flop that I had mentioned in ‘Directing/Editing’, did his role justice. Charles Inojie as Dumbra, Oyetoro Hafiz as Kasali and Amaka Ononibaku as Angela…. all I can say is Laugh don kill me die. Amazing job round the table.

-Musical Score: [4 out of 5] This movie’s musical score is… ‘classic’ and ‘epic’ and any other -ic word you can think of. The musical score was just signature. Many times have I walked into a room where folks are watching this movie and known what movie was playing without hearing a character’s lines or looking at the screen… because after watching this movie, the score is embedded within you. Very few movies nowadays can boast of that.
