      How can it be when only one couple is married? Besides, people copy all the time, even in Hollywood. Stop making noise about copying.

    Bishop umoh is just not funny! Always doing the same gimmicks gets tiring!

    February 8, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    I will watch it bcos of Genny n Ramsey. D trailer isn’t bad but dat Bishop guy is ann0ying, he isn’t 4nny @all. Ini is manageable. As 4 Uti, Alex Ekubo n Monalisa, if I can buy talent, I would have bought 5000 talents each 4 dem even if it will cost me my head. Bryan Okwara is trying. Go Genny n Ramsey, I love u guys. Genny looks so hot. I wonder why dey didn’t star as couple.

    • na u know

      February 8, 2013 at 4:01 pm

      Bishop is funny! Get a life!

      Not according to the producers of Half of a yellow sun

    • Vince

      February 14, 2013 at 12:08 pm

      That story was not a statement from the producer but a speculation from an unknown so there is no way to claim its authenticity. But why am I wasting my time trying to defend her. When u hate someone you will never see any good in that person, it’s just human nature. So hate on Lekan.
      Love you Genny! Looking forward to the movie.

    I hope this was not inspired by ‘why did i get married’

    • Let It Flow

      February 8, 2013 at 1:52 pm

      I like how you have phrased your comment – ‘INSPIRED’. Modest. Hhmnnh. ‘Why did I get married’ with a twist.

    Good thriller…hope the actual movie comes out good thoo.

  14. Nomy

    Fine boy, plenty swagger,that part is hilarious sha! Caught them on set for this movie October 2011, if it has taken this long to come out, then am almost sure it will be a treat!

  20. P.

    February 8, 2013 at 3:48 pm

    Can’t wait to see it! Seems quite similar to “Couple’s Retreat” and “The Best Ever Marigold Hotel” though.

  21. kina

    February 8, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    Why do their trailers never ever make sense for goodness sake. Its called a pitch…..the trailer is suppose to pitch the idea that you cannot afford to miss this movie. urgh!!!! anyway Genny is too beautiful (not fair). Beverly needs to go to acting school, even through the trailer her flaws are glaring. Wonder what the full movie will be like.

  22. omotee

    nice preview

  23. Bey

    February 8, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    With Genny nd Ramsey I’m sooo watching this movie cox dey are my fave..Genny is alwayS Real nd calm..she’s not gragra like some wannabes

  24. Qte

    February 8, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    One word…STUPID, and the trailer even more ludicrous. Too much show show and no substance. Same old, same old with expensive clothes, clearer picture. However, I give some to them for the effort…they try sha, but the movie is flat.

  25. EMELIE

    February 8, 2013 at 5:10 pm

  30. Bangor chic

    February 8, 2013 at 11:17 pm

    I fell in love with Bobby when I saw ‘mrs somebody’ the guy is absolutely amazing, he is very real with his acting and a true breath of fresh air.

  31. Odine

    February 8, 2013 at 11:37 pm

    Did I notice a bit of ‘maid in manhattan’ ?

    • Mz Socially Awkward....

      February 9, 2013 at 2:13 am

      You did. Ini’s apparently reprising J-Lo’s character here.

    February 9, 2013 at 3:22 am

    Pls the only reason bobby looked good in mrs somebody is because we were already feeling for uche jumbo and he became her Prince Charming , Kenneth guy did better pls but both were no where near Yemi even though mrs somebody was it for jumbo acting not the guys…. Back to this movie , I am totally watching it for Emem isong , she does real stories I mean she did mrs somebody and I thought the movie wAs half way my friend’ s story.

  34. Bess

    February 9, 2013 at 4:27 am

    Alexx Ekubo, is the best of the actors lined up.. I saw him in a different film.. He was really good.. I say, watch out for him.. He should go Hollywood.. He should sign up with an agent in NY and surely will go places if he works toward it..

  35. Q.Obodo

    February 9, 2013 at 5:07 am

    I love you Bobby Obodo. Your future wife.

  36. Maria

    February 9, 2013 at 3:02 pm

    Uruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu I see you girl.

  37. Patricia

    February 9, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    To jade, i was finking same about the hype of bobby obodo when my sist & hubby were bugging our ears with his name, but I saw his movie mrs somebody with uche jombo, i blv he is going to take over nollywood soon. i wldnt argue if he’s d best new
    actor out there, but he has one huge advantage over the others both old & new actors; he is a natural act. it feels like he plays himself in his movie. if he builds on that
    strength, he’s gone. love his acting & i will def watch his movies. Uru is a good actress but i think dey should stop calling her new actress. she needs to shine more. its a rat race industry. uti, bryan, alex, naya. oh well… genny & ramsey of life. ini has lost it. she hasn’t grown in her acts. cnt wait to see dis movie

  38. Troker

    February 9, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    I wish Nigerian movie trailers would actually give us an idea of what the movie is about or the storyline instead or just throwing out random scenes. This makes no sense to me.

  39. D Fairy GodSister

    February 10, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    Looks like something I’d like to see, all star cast……

  40. kelvin

    February 11, 2013 at 10:16 am

    Alex. Ekubo and hollywood shld nvr be mentioned in the same sentence, saw dat dude nd uti in that movie, in the cupboard, dat movie was a train wreck, horrible storyline, terrible editing and it was plagued wit bad acting, ini edo’s acting was overshadowed in all of that mess!

  41. Cima

    February 11, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    All films are inspired by something, i doubt its why did i get married. Meanwhile if you think in d cupboard was a bad film then, you probably have a weird taste for everything.

    I will like to watch this, really hope it came together perfectly

  42. grace

    February 15, 2013 at 12:55 am

    Why Uti? did he briebe the Director or what,the guy is not an actor I beg he should be placed where he belongs…………he knows nothing about acting shame shame shame we are bored with him let him do Jara o

  43. isatou dumbuya

    February 28, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    this movie is goin to b boom gosh cant wait to watch it….bobby obodo, beverly and ramsey in the movie its gona b crezy

  44. Poppy

    April 9, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    Well I think d movie will be lovely and u hatters of uti nd Alex they a good in their own way can’t wait to see d movie luv ya all

  45. Ashley

    November 16, 2013 at 4:39 am

    truth be told..We all love Genevieve cos she’ll real, when she acts we can immediately relate with it and that’s cos her acting is natural. Ramsey used to do it for me but not anymore…but he still has it in him..Ini is a NO-NO, always has been. Uti hmmmm…we all loved uti in bigbrother cos he was real, being himself…and am thinking is it cos he didnt have a script to act from? cos really his acting sucks…but in all i’ll watch this movie cos of Emem Isong…or is the movie out yet?

    I wonder why many of u will only sit & rubbish people that are doing there best.What for? That is too bad of u guys.i beliv we have grown pass all dis nonsence talk.say well to a job well down & good things will come ur ways.This person these that person that,isnt that very funny.Pls everyone in that movie acted guys are the best.Not for the fact that I love Genny others should go & die.Wake up guys & let’s mind the way we talk in public.Its not easy.U are not better than the people that worked for the success of that wonderful production.mind u.
