My Rating: NO RATING

The title is wholly appropriate. WHY? This was the question I was asking myself too. Why did I buy this stupid movie? It had been languishing on my shelf for over a year and having nothing else to watch I decided to give it a chance… WHHHHHHHY? Some things stay somewhere for a reason and this was definitely the case with this movie.

The movie is shot in the present with flashbacks to the past. In the opening scene we see a girl in jail telling a story, which then goes onto a scene where we see a woman berating her husband. The actress is not convincing at all and the pair do not even look like a couple.

From what I can see Uche Elendu’s performance seems the most credible but she is surrounded by rubbish actresses. I did not even get past 15 minutes begore I ejected this movie from the player. Straight junk. Throw it in the bin. Do not pass GO. Do not collect 200.

  1. LOL- Nolly uselesser and pointlesser! -No such word…ROTFL

    As for the movie Why? I am asking you the same question Why? buy movies with Francis Duru. I can't past the last movie where he had some crazy Liberian accent….

    I didn't even have the patience to do the whole of part one. As for Francis Duru he has been in some good movies. You are talking about Total War and Final War… I thought that was a really good movie although the way he kept saying "mami" every two minutes was getting on my nerves, but apparently that is how Liberians talk!

  3. lmao.

  4. nollywoodforever says:

    Yes WHY OH WHY? That is the question!

  5. Hi,
    I haven't seen WHY and I have stopped watching our local movies(I don't want to lose my sanity yet),but I can confidently tell you that most of these movie makers should be jailed for life without the possibility of parole.
    But as we all crush our own home made materials,it is also very important to note that the available" locations" in Nigeria are not in anyway condusive for movie making(generator sound everywhere),also,our actors,and other crew members are proudly Nigerian(indisciplined)like you and I. Thirdly,as long as the industry is left in the hands of traders(buying and selling crooners),please do not expect the industry to change anytime soon

    Yes there are many environmental factors that do not make it condusive for excellence yet still we must call a spade a spade as there are others in the same position that are making movies worth being celebrated!!!


    HOT ASS CRAP!! 5 minutes and I was so done. Was so embarrassed to exchange this movie with co-workers. I tried watching it a second time when i had nothing new and it just got worst. Waste of my money!!

    Thnk you Joanne. At least I am not alone. This has got to be one of the worst. With others they are bad but you can manage or get something out of it… With this one… you could just tell it was a complete and utter waste of time from the get go. This one cannot even be swapped with anyone because you will get cursed out once they find out! LOL

  10. Molly I do agree with most of Yur recommendations but don’t you think it defeats the purpose of reviewing movies
    if you don’t watch them completely. I understand that some movies under the “bin it category ” are soo bad that you can’t watch them completely but. T
