    Sky!
    just wanted to let you know, i started watching Caught in the Act last night, and ok, i'm wiping some egg off my face now.
    ms nnaji was good in it.
    the housewife was housewifey and the bad girl was bad
    i don't see the coldness/control so far.
    so far i like.
    i'll continue watching tonight.

    (just a side note, why do they make housewives to be these weak characters?)

    I am not speaking of Ms. Nnaji's performance so all voltrons back up, in my personal opinion the script was not great at all...the circumstances were very contrived.

    emmm...actually sky, i side with BB on this one, while nnaji's performance was up to par, the story she was working with wasn't.

    i liked the razz character :460:
    but she also portrayed the housewife too i think the way most nigerian housewives are perceived.

    just once, i want to see a strong housewife who is not a man-eater but has her own mind and can stand up to her meddling mother in law and show her husband that just because you want me to stay home, doesn't mean that you can push me around or we have to kow-tow to mummy's every whim.

    don't get me wrong, the story is different, a little, it seems we're back to the "one person play multiple characters" era of nigerian movies.

    And whats up with the trend of completely switching from wearing jeans, nice tops to those dready trads once a woman gets married in Nollywood movies????

    Such a horrible stereotype!

    Exactly.
    i haven't finished the movie, will do so this weekend if his highness UK allows me.
    but that was the one thing that irrirated me immediately, like...that is your wife! freaking stand up FOR her.
    just because you live in mummy's house, is that why she should treat your wife like a second class citizen?

    there was a movie with jim iyke, chioma chukwuka, uche jombo, and ebele okaro, and i loved jim's character. he STOOD up for his wife, for himself, and was going to do something about it but his wife persuaded him otherwise.

    i wonder, is the concluding part out yet for this movie?

    And over the word of a useless looking man at that? And if you all are so well off, why in the heck are y'all still doing livin' with mama at the family compound? It is the writing, everyone was just jumping to conclusions and screaming out their point of views and they got the king of all acting screamers to do the job for them. I am still baffled why Nonso Diobi is still acting, if na women dey hire am den I fit understand since it seems to be the general opinion that he is fine or something, what is the men's excuse for hiring him? He is a hot head in everything, heck even Michael Ezerounye another victim of Screamitis has tapered down a little. And Nonso was in this business even before Ezerounye and still no improvement. He always tired looking in films like he parties, drinks and smokes in excess, he never looks fresh then he gets mad like someone smoked his last ganga.

    Thank God I don't review films anymore or else the persin wey write dis wan for beat my nyash and nakid me for street o.

    @ highlighted...what annoys the hell out of me is when the woman persuades her husband not to speak on her behalf thinking that will make the matter worse...how worse can it possibly be when your in-laws are constantly in your face 24/7? Haba! There was one such movie called 'My best friend'....I cannot remember the name of the woman who was being verbally abused by her both the mother in law and sister in law and when the husband tried to intervene, there goes the stupid woman...sometimes, i end up thinking that they actually deserve what they go through with the inlaws...
