By now you know we kinda like our good friends at TrueNollywoodStories, at least based on how many times we look at the stuff that Segun Odejimi and Andrew Oke put up. Even if, every now and again, we will come for them.
But these are guys who are pay attention to film. Even if sometimes, they pay too much attention, it becomes witchcraft.
Like the below.
This was a review of AY’s film o, and it was going jeje-ly along:
The fact that this is what most have come to expect from Nigerian comedy films is rather disheartening. The formula for a comedy like this is; you put your peculiar/funny character (in this case Akpos) in a serious situation (the criminal underground) and watch all the craziness and hilarity unfurl before your eyes as said character uses his wackiness and various idiosyncrasies to get out of the situation.
Then, SUDDENLY, apropos of nothing, it veers and hits actor (and husband to Colombian bombshell, which is how we all began talking about him in the first place), IK Ogbonna right in the middle of the road!
A Trip to Jamaica doesn’t take this prime opportunity to be comedy gold. It instead chooses to be a nearly two hour long Peak Milk/Glo/Jamaican tourism advertisement complete with otiose cameos from Patoranking et al and acting performances on a scale of bad to IK Ogbonna from everyone in the film except Funke Akindele.
IK Ogbonna as synonym for worst?
And the true tragedy is: we couldn’t agree more.
