    *and now with a comment that actually addresses the post*
    It looked like a fun premier but what’s the plot of this movie? Anyone know if it’s any good?? Cannot watch trailer due to internet filters at my office.

      Its about this guy that wrote a book about his ordeal in boarding school and while he was reviewing the book, he gets flashback about his experience or something like that, hope this helps

    The plot sounds very interesting and a nice change from the cliches that Nollywood normally produces. Looking forward to seeing this

    Seen it twice….*yes its that good*
    its even better if you see it with friends you went to boarding skool with. It will leave you laughing ur ass off
    Everything about it was fresh….from the actors (look out for the two yoruba kids), to the cinematography and camera angles ( still racking my head about the ‘bucket water shot’ ) to the soundtrack….

    Highly impressive. I wanna see what these guys can do with a bigger budget

    Tiwa Savage is everywhere these days! She’s so beautiful though, I love her. Which kind of weave on is Gbemi wearing… It’s not nice. Anyways, seems like an interesting film. I have a feeling I will be watching a lot of Nollywood films in the upcoming months..

    Now I really feel like seeing this!! It’ll be nice to see this with an ex-Emotan girl… but I can settle for any of the other houses 🙂


    August 23, 2011 at 4:57 am

    I’m glad there are FINALLY new faces starting to appear in Nollywood movies, as well as the movie “Two Brides and a Baby” and stuff like that. its about time.
    ok, am i the only one tired of seeing Tiwa Savage? SIT DOWN! Is it by force to be at every event? I guess though, if they’re paying her.
    the “Guests at the Premiere” picture, LOL.
    what is it with some Lagos women and weave? Gbemi Phillips? I’m sorry, but when a weave is sooooo obviously fake, it becomes extremely unattractive. is our natural African hair that bad?

    Tiwa, Love your smile. If you are invited, please go jo. Wetin be their business sef, afterall, you be star.

    40″ Indian/Brazilian hair.. Naija babes ohh… bet they never heard of the saying less is more 🙂

    Saw the movie, I liked it. If I’m feeling generous might take some younger cousins to go see it, but I probably won’t feel generous. Such is life.

    You people should leave Gbemi and her 36 inches of hair na, she knows why she needs it that long. Personally I’m glad to finally see someone whose weave dwarf Tiwa’s and can trip up a small child.
