A must watch!
4 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

One word describes this movie, BRILLIANT!!! From beginning to end, the hairs on the back of my neck couldn't stop standing. The story line was simple yet captivating, the acting was bang on and flawless. The delivery of the movie was done with such ease and humor that I secretly wished it wouldn't end. Mary is a sweet girl that any man would gladly "take home to mama" (kinda made me wonder how she was still single). While Akin is your archer-type male, whom I suspected had a wicked sense of humor. The character of the twins and Mary's sister provided an appropriate dose of comic relief. I must admit I am extremely proud of the cast and crew, Nigeria was highlighted as a pleasant place to be. I will definitely be getting the DVD when it comes out. PHONE SWAP has proved to be a must see classic of our time.
