Romance, Comedy, Drama
A successful business woman Zara (Genevieve Nnaji) found no line of omission in her life but her two close friends did. To them she is not complete without a man. They set several blind dates for her; the outcome was not impressive. Zara decided to give up on love until the right man comes her way. Tena (Nse Ikpe-Etim) asked her to try a last blind date she has planned for her, she was reluctant but gave it a last try. This time the outcome was positive. Love was knocking at her door but with challenges that made her shiver with second thoughts. Does she open the door to embrace new challenges of the real world or just close her door and live her usual self-centered C.E.O life? Comedy and drama at your door steps.
It was good but, but not great in my books - i guess becuase it was a lil predictable for me. Once again Genny and Majid - shine on screen as a couple.
Susan Peters ohhhhh my gosh - she had me in tears laughing with her razziness and ghettofabulousness - very good actress - I think ihave to add her to the list of upcoming actress to look out for. In the Episode 1 of the movie - come and see her and her angelic self begging for mercy to be taken back by her ex- boy - Now the boy say he dont want you cos you cheated on him, come and see craziness at its best. She acted her character so damn well and i am so proud of her. (Favourite Quote: Tyrone - Do you know Ibiere, You dont know Ibiere) - razzness at its finest - I must say she reminded of the recent footage i saw of actress Ufuoma Ejenabor with the Lagos police - with that, at first, watching that i thought it was a movie - until it was confirm it damn sure aint no movie.
Like i mentioned in my previous thread - I think i am kinda tired of this corporate type role with Genny. She done that enough in 2009/10. Now i want to see other challenging type roles like she did in Sharon Stone, Blood Sisters, Wind of Glory etc etc - or something just out of the ordinary. She plays her corporate characters so well - just excellent but now i think its redudant - lets go back to the drawing board and come up with something more creative than those type of roles. She is such an excellent actress who has grown in her acting since i started watching her 12yrs ago - moving forward i want to see more challenging roles.
The few scenes I didnt care for was the scenes with office staff - i found that part a bit boring. Funny sometimes but most of the scenes with the staff chatting, i didnt care for.
(will continue later as i remember something)
8/10 - definately a collectors item and rewatchable
In 2009 I gave Guilty Pleasures 9/10 as you will see here – so goes to show I still like GP better – but Bursting Out was still very good nonetheless http://myafricanmoviereviews.blogspot.com/2009/10/guilty-pleasures-emem-isong-produced.html
