A two cast movie starring Majid Michel and Yvonne Okoro.

Marriage is embedded with challenges and external factors which only few couples can withstand. The Williams family had the best of marriage until they encountered their first marital problem; ego was a factor for both of them. No one was ready to look vulnerable only to intensify their hilarious fight.

Why did I marry? The only question they both cannot find an answer to.

I have noticed with great sadness that a lot of Nigerian movies always give their characters "Williams" as a last name. Are there no more natives names available for these movie makers to choose from? :(

Here is my review:

6/10

This is Ghana's first two member cast movie and modelled upon Yoruba Movie Modupe Temi. We all know Frankie baby (and company) like to copy movies so this is no surprise, however I have not seen Modupe Temi so I couldn’t possibly tell you how close a copy it is. This two cast movie is a very risky concept to tackle because there are absolutely no distractions besides the two actors involved. Not only does the dialogue and story have to be tight, but so do the actors. If anyone has the chops to pull it off then it is surely Majid Michel and Yvonne Okoro? Both are charismatic and more than capable actors.

I found the special effect noises used throughout the movie to be overkill. This was not a daffy duck cartoon and those special effect noises were positively CLOWNISH and veering on inappropriate. It all started in one of the first scenes where Majid was tasting food from the pots. It got to the stage where the heavy chords used were actually becoming very irritating.

I would recommend this movie if only to see Yvonne and Majid act alongside each other. The movie was an interesting one and a brave concept to tackle. Majid and Yvonne truly gave great performances and there were some great comedic moments but for me there just wasn't enough meat in the storyline to hold my attention for the entire time. There was too much dialogue less space and I didn’t feel like the characters were fully developed. There were no real issues discussed in depth, which meant that there was no focus to the story, neither was there a big climax. It was steady but some parts dragged for me. Towards the end of the movie I was too ready for it to be done.
