    Another Royal Arts Academy venture:
    Directed by Desmond Elliot
    Starring Uti Nwachukwu, Desmond Elliot, Uche Jombo, Tonto Dikeh

    7/10
    Gerald, is a philadering commitment shy executive, who is horrified when he is told that his nephew Junior will be left in his custody after his brother’s death. He worries that this development will mark the end of his social life, leaving him subject to a life of PTA meetings and cleaning nose boogers, but there is no choice as the only way out of the arrangement according to the will is if he himself dies. Under his girlfriend Ella’s persistence he reluctantly takes the boy into his home, but struggling to bond with the boy hires a nanny to help him out, who is a recently sacked secretary with a huge secret. Her presence causes his girlfriend to feel resentful.

    This is the first time that I have seen Uti in a film. He is good looking and dresses sharply but his acting doesn’t excite me at all. He is aiiight but just way too hyper and shouts alot. If he toned it down a little, he could actually be good. He did actually improve as the movie went on, hmmmm or did I just get used to him? The other newbie was way more natural (the guy that played his friend) although his performance wasn’t anything you would write and tell your friends about either. Tonto’s acting felt forced, with the more and more common habit she has of stumbling over her words. Back in the day Tonto would KILL every performance. Her performances are hit or miss these days. Uche translated her role well. She never disappoints, so I didn’t expect anything less. Dora’s friend reminded me of Chika Ike her voice sounded that same, just annoying.

    The movie was enjoyable to watch and I’d recommend it. Technically the movie was nicely shot. The soundtrack blended easily and the picture and sound were good. I liked the story but I did find it a little predictable.

    Watching this now and combine tonto dikeh with the highlighted above, and we have a disaster. halfway to the first part, I don't think I can finish it, it's annoying as all gettout. But the insult Uche gave Tonto in the beginning will foreva be a classic, I laughed so hard.

    THE FOLOWING EDITS HAVE BEEN MADE TO THIS POSTING....
    I fell asleep twice during the movie WITH the headphones in my ear, Ending was wayyyyy dumb, Worst acting I've seen in a long time and folks you know there are lots of bad acting in Nollywood. That lead actor had no business acting, let alone being a lead, like worraphuk?? To make matters worse, it seemed Tonto was feeding off his bad acting and being worse than usual. Perhaps the worst movie I have seen this year!!! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.
