Production quality and performances.
Ok, ok! This genre is getting old. I get it now. It’s a formula that works. It’s easy to watch (“when I say easy to watch I mean that it’s in a genre that doesn’t pose too many questions or ruffle many feathers). At the end of the movie, everyone’s happy… so there’s no point mentioning that no one’s going to remember the storyline in a week, nay 3 days.
It’s about your husband is the story of a philandering man, played by Deyemi Okanlawon; who one day, while his wife is out of town, brings his mistress home. On her way out the next day she realizes she has nothing to wear to work and she “borrows” an outfit she finds in the closet (at this point I’m thinking, why did your brain not tell you that this man has a wife yet? Otherwise, what did you expect to find in the closet of a single man?).
At work she’s on an interview panel to find a new employee for her place of work, “Afriville”, and one of the interviewee’s comes in and seems lost in thought while staring at her dress. Needless to say, this is ‘the wife’.
We are going to keep it simple because it doesn’t take Solomon’s wisdom to know how this story goes (plus the trailer isn’t necessarily trying to hide much). It’s a very simple storyline from start to finish and the performances are carried out well enough that interest is piqued and held.
The storyline could have been much less original than it ended up being especially considering the millions way from the sun that the mistress angle could have been dragged out. On this note props to Uduak and the writers for giving us a sane-but-still-crazy antagonist that we are able to love in the end.
It truly is a happy go lucky type of film with a few funny moments where the only real conflict lasts approximately through 1% of the movie.
