Re­viewed by: Cast: Ti­tle: Year: Di­rec­tor: ti Nwachukwu plays the role of Gerald a phi­lan­der­ing com­mit­ment-shy ex­ec­u­tive, who is hor­ri­fied when he is told that his nephew Ju­nior will be left in his cus­tody af­ter his

Ubrother’s death. He wor­ries that this de­vel­op­ment will mark the end of his so­cial life, sub­ject­ing him to a life of PTA meet­ings and clean­ing nose boogers, but there is no choice as the only way out of the ar­range­ment ac­cord­ing to the will is if he him­self dies. Un­der his girl­friend Ella’s (Tonto Dikeh) per­sis­tence he re­luc­tantly takes the boy into his home. In try­ing to bond with the boy, he hires a nanny to help him out who is a re­cently sacked sec­re­tary (Uche Jombo) with a huge se­cret. Her pres­ence causes his girl­friend to feel re­sent­ful.

A plus for Uti in the movie is his looks which he com­ple­ments with his sharp dress­ing but he was too hy­per and shouted a lot.

The other new­bie was more nat­u­ral (the guy that played his friend) although his per­for­mance wasn’t any­thing you would write and tell your friends about ei­ther. In Tonto’s case, her act­ing looked forced with the in­creased habit of stum­bling over her words.

Uche Jombo did not dis­ap­point as she played her role well. Tech­ni­cally the movie was nicely shot. The sound­track blended easily and the pic­tures and sound were good. The sto­ry­line was good but a lit­tle bit pre­dictable. For a new­comer, Uti was okay and Uche Jombo was her usual self. Al­ways on point!!!
