This is another one of those preachy type films that carries and sends the wrong message to people. Okay RMD (Richard Mofe Damijo for beginners) and Genevieve Nnaji are a married couple who at first seem to have everything going for them. RMD plays a pastor and naturally that makes Nnaji the wife of a preacher but she hardly fits the role. In fact, she is too kinky for the bill of preacher's wife and even she finds it very hard to conceal this her slutty tendencies.

One day, she discovers that she cannot get pregnant because her husband is seemingly impotent and this drives her nuts. She keeps bickering to the point whereby she leaves her husband no choice but to stay away from her and their home. One night while driving home, lost in thought, the pastor nearly collides with another car that he didn't see coming towards him. This is the cue card for Stephanie Okereke's character, as she is the driver of the car the pastor almost collided with. Okereke's character jumps out of her car and flies to where the pastor is still lost in thought and begins to yell at him in the most fake American accent you could ever care to hear or bear (her character is supposed to be some sort of NRN visiting Nigeria for the first time but she plays this so poorly).

When she notices that the pastor seems not all together there, she invites herself into his car and tries to reason with him, thinking that he was trying to commit suicide. Very soon, the pastor begins to notice how attractive the young woman is and before you know it, the most ghastly thing I've ever seen in a Nigerian movie occurs. The two of them begin to make-out and inadvertently have sex in the car. Okay, now that threw me off, and "I" was watching the film. So if you're reading this and going "WTF?" well, you're right to inquire. Because these two characters never knew each other before that moment, what they were talking about had nothing to do with anything remotely close to instigating a make-out session talk less of sex, yet them manage to find their way into those two predicaments somehow.

It's needless to say that a film that throws you off like that would have a part 2, a major cliché with Naija films. And yes, there is Part 2, if you're able to survive this one. Olu Jacobs, veteran actor of international and global proportions is wasted here as the father of RMD's character.
