MEN IN LOVE (movie review)


.
Starring
Muna Obiekwe, John Dumelo, Tontoh Dikeh and others (when you are puttin in "others" category u should know u need to up ya game cos no one notices ya talent)
.
Producer:
Kingsley Okere
.
Director:
Moses Ebere
.
Storyline
The intricacies of marriage and the delicately torpid route is a must for every couple. Charles escapades have always been the ban in his marriage. His wife Whitney dearly loves her husband and would do all it takes to hold on to the pieces. Quarrels and reconciliation dictates the union on a daily basis. But for how much longer? What happens if the problems simply become intolerable and his flagrancy transcends beyond established norms?
.
Theme:
Marriage, Infidelity, Homosexuality,
.
My Review:
Honestly i dont have much to say about it - I did not like it and glad i did not buy it (i borrowed it), but in summary i would say the script was not that great, Muna still remains a great actor and JD is very good too, Tontoh still with her predictable gra-gra acting when she is emphasing a strong point with all the strong veins on her neck to stress that point. Seriously Tontoh u need to stop that - its become played out and too damn predictable of you. You dont need to growl like that when u want to get a point across. You got great potential but everytime I see you do that it takes some major points off of you. I have started forwarding such scenes, cos all i do is roll my eyes and say (just like i do when Mike or Desmond scream and shout to emphasise their point) ..."Blah blah blah - here we go again - what else is new"
.
And my award for the worst actress in this movie, would go to ........... (drum roll please).........."Ejinne" - she played one of Tontohs friend - gosh the way she spoke irritated the hell out of me when she spoke - cant act-cant speak without forcing some accent- its like she was trying to speak proper or something but it made her sound retarded. Why cant some of these force force acting newbies simply be themselves and act natural - speak your normal way - dont force it. I have marked her down cos she is going in the worst actress category in my 2010 end of year Miss Tilii awards with Biola and "the whole force force cant act coalition". Like the rest of em - she is an attractive young girl - I have to be constructive with my criticism so i advice girl to take some acting classes and be normal in her speaking and stop all that gragra annoying irritating speaking.
.
Other horrible acting also came from ALL of the guys who played Muna gay friends - oh my gash, to me their scenes were just horrendous AND hilarious. I cringed.
.
I noticed a bit of the scene was cut out/ommited either by the US distributors who redistributed the movie In the preview i think i saw Muna's Assets, but in the movie itself they did not show that - they showed he and JD getting it on, but they showed waist up. Thank God it was, cos that will definately not be appropriate - we got enough nonsense from my country ghana with showing everything, we dont need to continue that nasty trend. I dont want to see no hairy asses, however I would like to advocate and to see some SIX PACK - for once in african movies. I guess am thinking too loud - just give us one actor who cares and take care of his abs. Just one - we ladies are not asking for much - we have had enough of 2 litres & love handles - we want 6 Pack and we want it now (its got nothing to do with acting but its a great site and bonus if we are paying almost $7 to buy ya movies) - and Jim Iyke dont think you got it cos everytime i look at yours i think of "a bowl of oatmeal" (quaker oats to be precise).:lol: - oh c'mon Jim Ms Tiliis only joking. :lol:
.
My Rating:
4/10
(Now you know Ms Tilii does not review movies with this low rating (not worth my dime or time) but just for Muna I did review this (if you will call that lil short summary a review :lol:) - uma have to fly to Enugu and have a talk with my man - me and him r having issues - am so mad he accepted this role, yeah he is a great actor and want to show diversity in his skill set, but Muna c'mon - this is was not a good look. The only way he can win this battle is do one excellent romantic movie with a great director and maybe starring Genny or something, and then i will forgive him and all his bend down antics (oh lawd i just squirmed at the thought of that scene - i had to bury my face in my pillow).
.
And then to top it off my friend Nolly just told me my Muna has another upcoming movie of similar theme or some sort, wearing A GREEN "LEOPARD" THONG - am in tears as i type this. Muna if this is some type of popularity stunt you need to quit it cos you breaking my lil heart.
.
I guess i have to go watch movies such as "He Lives in Me" and "Warriors Heart" to erase the horrible mental f/up i just had after watching this movie.
.
In conclusion - is this movie worth buying - Hell to NO! - like i said - only buy movies i rate 8/10 and above.

Ms Tilli,

Ms Tilli, you will not kill me...LMAO. Your rants regarding Muna starring in the film (and the other film referenced by Nolly) is hilariou).

Anyway, I concur on the need for actors with six packs. You do not know how much I wish some of our actors can emulate the P-Square twins. Now those 2 have admirable six packs.

Ok I found the name of the film it is called DIRTY SECRET and I believe Artus and Muna are gay lovers from what I sa win the preview... there is also a father and daughter sleeping together.,, so of course its going to be gratuitous and ridiculous LMAO... I actually saw the preview before Men in Love.

So the DVD had 3 parts? they are really stretching. My VCDs were part 1 and 2...

Personally, I feel Afrikan producers are over-doing the gay thingy...we get it...at least, after "Reloaded" & "4Play"...we sooo get it.
I know you do not review crappy movees but I am glad you did this...And glad that movee distributors in U.S are taking the initiative to delete inappropriate scenes...

Hi Ms Tilli,I think maybe Muna wants to be like Majid,who's a very good actor wasting his talent & career on useless movies.Dis movie was nothing 2 write home abt.

I think this movie raised John Dumelo's profile even more though it was a bad movie in my opinion. Hopefully JD will choose his scripts with care in future
