NR ReviewGenre: Comedy
When the movie started, I was thinking it was a lot like the movie ‘I Belong’ starring Omotola Jolade-Ekehinde (from years back) with the whole desperate attempt to be what you are not. And then as the movie progressed and Prince David’s character met Yvonne Nelson’s character, I was thinking more along the lines of “Pleasure & Crime” starring Yul Edochie.
-Story: [1 out of 5] It was an interesting enough storyline. One must bear in mind that this was a ‘comedy’ and African comedy isn’t exactly known for phenomenal storyline (hopefully ‘Phone Swap’ is the exception to this rule)
-Originality: [0 out of 5] When the movie started, I was thinking it was a lot like the movie ‘I Belong’ starring Omotola Jolade-Ekehinde (from years back) with the whole desperate attempt to be what you are not. And then as the movie progressed and Prince David’s character met Yvonne Nelson’s character, I was thinking more along the lines of “Pleasure & Crime” starring Yul Edochie. And then at the point where Eddie Nartey’s character’s true colors surfaced, I felt “Stolen Love“. So how can a movie be a mix of 3 different movies and still not be original? Because the movie is a Ghanaian replica of the Yoruba movie Alakada starring Toyin Aimahku and Doris Simeon
-Predictability: [0 out of 5] Being that the movie is a rip of another movie… the end becomes predictable
-Directing/Editing: [2 out of 5] No major faults except that all the Twi spoken in this movie were spoken without subtitles which is unfair to us non-Ghanaians. Plus… stop stealing storylines please
-Acting quality: [2 out of 5] The new girl, Nana Akua Addo! I just saw her in the movie “Rain” alongside Nadia Buari and Adjetey Anang and even then I couldn’t describe her acting skills. If I were to use one word to describe her it would be ‘ok’. I don’t think she stunk. She wasn’t exactly a Biola Ige but neither was she great. I’m very unsure about her acting and will probably get an opinion when I see her in a more serious role and I actually pay attention to her. Eddie Nartey did an ah-may-zing job (from the start I could tell that he was phony). Zynell Lydia Zuh, whom I usually love, was good in most parts of the movie but when it came down to the sex scenes, she seemed to be relaying that Kalsum Sinare forcefulness and unrealness… which needs to GO! Yvonne Nelson did a great job. Prince David Osei… lmao. O dear Prince. Again, here’s another movie in which he pissed me off with his so called acting. I think one of the most annoying scenes was definitely the one where he was attempting to seduce Yvonne Nelson so he takes one yeye long screwdriver like that and now used it to trace a circle around his nipple. I admit… prior to that, the guy was standing shirtless and sweaty… eh! Maybe someone might have been seduced. But in which gay world does using screwdriver to draw circle seduce anyone? And last but not least, Lisa Asor Awuku who played the role of Whitney. You might remember her from the movie “Bestfriends“. She is the Prada loving kid in the video “Little Girls Want Prada too“. I also remember seeing her in some other movie. She is making her mark as a child actor in Ghana and I commend her… as Nolly/Ghally really doesn’t have that many Raven Symone’s and Lindsay Lohan’s.
