Storyline

What happens when you throw in an insecure virgin bride, a reformed playboy groom, two overbearing mothers who can't stand each other, one philandering husband, a high-strung wedding planner, the invasion of unruly village gate- crashes, a thief on the loose, a best man with a flashdrive full of secrets, a sexy EX with vengeance on her mind, two loyal bridesmaids ready to go to war, and a brother seeking his father's approval? A HILARIOUS melting pot of potential disaster. Will it all be too much? Or will true love stand even the most chaotic of wedding celebrations as offered in The Wedding Party?

If you're a Nigerian . . .
26 February 2018 | by pmoreino7See all my reviews

In particular a Nigerian of a certain age (b/w 30-40) who lives elsewhere, but misses certain aspects of Nigeria, this is a really good film. Noted: that's a very narrow category. Look, Nollywood has produced some embarrassing nonsense, but The Wedding Party is something that is actually well-produced and directed. Also, the actors are good and/or appear to be having a good time. Is that a relatively low bar? Perhaps. But, again, consider the demographic and then see if you don't enjoy it.

I hope there's more to come like this from Nollywood.
