    we r going to be bombarded with bad acting and cliches,
    which will make this movie corny and boring. RAA it’s getting
    repetitive seein the same faces we don’t even want to see and

      Madame Nene, that goes around trolling the internet looking for any news of Emem Isong to throw shade on, please get a life! I noticed you also said something similar on the GIAMA awards post when Alex won the award for best supporting actor. You said he’s award was bought by Emem!!! Please leave this hard working girl alone!! Instead of her using her hard earned money to buy Birkin bag, Lego bag and other such nonsense, she is investing it in film and you are there saying she is making ‘corny’ movies! At least she is making movies and doing something with her life. What are you doing? Trolling the internet withyour hair in rollers at 3pm in the afternoon, obviously jobless. Please find work, Nne. It will ease your frustration. Biko o?! #Sheeesh!

      Please don’t! The film is obviously not for you! As for me,
      I’ve already arranged my ticket money! Heheheheh!

    This is so cool! Anyway, what do I expect? From the lady that discovered Stella Damasus, Dakore Egbuson, Nse Ikpe Etim, and revived the careers of several more Stephanie Okereke, Uche Jombo, Mike Ezuronye, Desmond Elliot and many more…. started the ensemble film method in Nigeria with ‘Reloaded’, Emem is really a trail blazer. Cant wait to go to the cinema to see this! Reserve my seat abeg!

    This is good. However, please can we have more movies about
    “Silver fox”, how women overcome their advances and make inspiring
    choices that would serve as role models to younger girls?

  21. Naveah

    Personally (UNDERLINE the word, please) , the concept doesn’t gel for me because these men and women that are cast all look to be about the same age so it rattles the idea of them poaching these men. I think to address cougars on a serious level especially the psychological and emotional impact of such a relationship, there has to be a significant amount of years between the two subjects but I don’t think this is what the movie is supposed to do. Emem usually starts off in her movies addressing serious issues but ends up toying with the concepts instead of truly delving in and expanding the minds of her audience, I have noted this issue since her movie Traumatized which dealt with rape but it was so superficial that I wish she had never bothered. If this is supposed to be a light hearted view on cougar relationships then I think if they had casted the likes of Ene Lawani, Regina Askia William and Nike Oshinowo then it would work. The women I have mentioned have the deep pocketed means, looks but most definitely and most importantly the LIFE experience that would attract a young man in a cougar relationship but that’s just what I would look for as an audience member. When Nollywood depicts sugar daddy situations, they use much older men versus a much young woman which really shows the disparity and the underlying need on both sides – one to feel younger and powerful, the other to have protection and provision. I don’t know what this pairings is meant to do.

    I personally myself , am waiting to see this movie. Rock on
    Emem, Rock on RAA, and ROCK ON NAIJA DIVAS!!!! Love it, love

    Very interesting comment Naveah. When I think of a cougar I see a professional mature woman that has it going on and seeks a younger dude so she may have fun, go out and just do things some, I said some older guys would not be interested in. Life experiences is something that attracts younger guys but also the fact that he would be dealing with a woman in most cases already established that just wants to have FUN.

    Nollywood has come a long way though #soproud. Look at that poster, totally looks like a Tyler Perry movie. I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing now that I’ve said. I think good though. There’s nothing new under the sun. The mark of a good writer after all is knowing how to hide your sources 😉 lol

    Africans go back to your culture go back to your roots and become an original you were created to be……Nolly wood so sad is dying….As long as Africans keep trying to be western ….they will never reach their full potential… sad Africans are the only ones who want to be something else other than Africans……same recycled western wanna be bullshit over n over again….

      There is something for every one! all films can not be about Africans in grass skirts and huts! We bestride two worlds… some touch the contemporary others the native. If you have followed Emem’s movies from inception, I notice she has an interest in mainly the contemporary. I like other urban young African women will watch the film because it reflects me. That apart there is enough Man candy in this film to give me toothache! Heheh! Biko, leave the politics, I want to see what these filne young men esp Bobby Michaels has to offer. 🙂

    I certainly admire Emem and the niche she has been able to create for herself in the industry. But a well thought out plot is essential to keep our interest alive. i will definitely look out for the dvd for a full review. For more nollywood movie reviews:

    No time for love? Or doesn’t she? HUH??? Don’t you mean “does she”?? If she does not have time for love, that shows that she may why not in parallel ask if she does?
