Not bad. It wasn't a wow! homvie sha. Ini Edo na good actress-end of story!;)

The Olivia girl that acted Ini's younger sister has great potentials-watch out for her. The kids didnt do too bad either. I remember the li'l boy from another movie where Chioma Chukwuka was their teacher that eventually fell in love with his father, Tony Umez, i think. (cant remember the title)-I wont ever forget his lines in that flick-"Aunty Tlicia(Tricia), i raik(like) you!"bgrin: He's a big boy now.

Tchidi Chikere seem to be doing well with his storylines i have to say. This one is unusual and i liked it cos of that. He used some new faces too. That was good. Linc Edochie is not a bad actor either-he needs a bit more lessons, but he'll be fine.

And oh, Mr Tchidi, thanks bro, for not showing up in that flick!:fing02: I was afraid help:you just might be that lawyer dude, thank God you weren't! Things are definitely geting better.

If you want something different, pick this one up. Its a 7/10 from me.:fing33:

Good rating my sister I agreed with you Olive ini's younger sister in the movie is a good actress I have seen her in some movie she was in Stronghold starring Ini, Jim and others, she was ini's best friend in the movie, she was also in the humble lion, lost wealth and royal doom. I have my eyes on she is also good looking.

I really do not like this Mr. Issac guy. One, he is a pervert. Tchidi could have found a better way to introduce his character. Two, he is a horrible lawyer. You had the boss by the balls...he should have bargained for the house and 1 million. He screams...like the typical starter-Naija. Linc overshadows him here and I think I may love Linc lol. Even with his good deeds, it seems as if Christine sold her sister to have financial stability...which is EWWWW!!! #stillaperv

But seriously, he should have used the house as a bargaining chip. 1 million and the house.

I like the idea of this movie, and the kids: Filipa, Olivia, Johnson. Linc's character, the Boss, was awesome. Juanita and Akin were also good. Ini plays a wonderful Nigerian mother, ask questions and shout "shut up" whenever the person is about to answer. I love her in this film.

What I did not like was:
1. Chica, you have bloody responsibilities. My gosh, swallow your bloody pride and accept Juanita's 30 grand or take your job temporarily until you have another job. If I had kids, pride goes out of the window. Call me all the names in the book, but my kids are not going to live in the wilderness, and definitely not Naija's wilderness.

2. I appreciate that she was not trying to hurt her kids, but lying does not help matters. At least tell your sister, Olivia. The stress of that alone does not help matters since you are their sole benefactor.

3. Where Olivia was having stomach pains from water poisoning, I was laughing. One, she sounded as if she was choking. Stomach pains from contaminated water means that you either have to excrete it out or puke it out. If we can't fake pukes, please do not have the poor girl choking abeg (directors, take note). And Ini's character was wailing...that really does not help it. But she was playing the Nigerian mother perfectly, so I can't fault her for it. The kids were marvelous.

4. "axing" tsk tsk

I loved:
1. Linc plays his character so well that I am smiling when I should be mad at him. Yes, he owes Christine's character compensation for unjust termination but the 4 months of free stay she was asking for is...a bit too much, as a businessman. I wonder why Linc is not used more often in movies, he has a certain something to him.

2. And the lawyer and Olivia, I was so glad Christine mentioned it "UNDERAGE!!!!" yes, he is a good guy but dude, I would hurt you too if I saw a grown-ass man with my younger sister.

3. Everyone called Juanita "thief." I laughed every time I heard it, and the woman just has to take it. I applaud that the writer/director made her character stick it out.

4. The Indian music was somehow fitting, somehow.

5. ...wait for it....NO WIGS or WEAVES!!!! or maybe I missed it.

Ini has proven herself with this film. She stands out for me.

Christine-Ini Edo
Mr. Ben-Link Edochie
Juanita-Cynthia Okereke
Olivia-Vivian Egbon
Phillipa-Lilian Michaels
Johnson-Ugo Igwesi
Akin-Jnr. Pope Odonwodo
Isaac-Collins Richards
