Storyline

Just before best friends and flatmates Paul "Baaj Adebule" and Ortega "Ebiye Victor" renew their yearly rent, their Landlord dies very suddenly, and seemingly without any heir apparent. The young men seize upon the unfortunate but good opportunity to 'enjoy' a little. They go on an expensive night out. The Landlord's daughter "Segilola Ogidan" turns up the following morning and gives the boys 24-hour notice to pay up or quit. They embark on an overnight scheme to recover the rent, leading to a dangerous encounter with an eccentric drug baron "Frank Adekunle Macaulay", a desperate robbery attempt, a gambling adventure, and an ego war with the neighborhood bully, Orlando "Mawuli Gavor". All the while hounded by Ngozi "Bisola Aiyeola", the neighborhood gossip who just wants a piece of the action.

A pretty funny comedy feeling like a vacation
7 December 2019 | by petardrianovSee all my reviews

Amazingly beautiful setting, felt like I am on vacation and I got a few laughs as well. A very down-to-earth, old-school keep it real vibe from this movie. Very realistic, a feel-good light comedy that gets serious at moments, sad truths that people in more poor countries laugh about. Does not even try to be a Hollywood movie, and definitely not from Bollywood. I just had to write this review because the other review that I read completely misses the point of the movie: take it easy, have a few laughs, see a new place through the eyes of locals. I am sure life is not that easy there, don't be jealous it is just a comedy, it doesn't have to be real and logical. By the way subtitles helped me a lot, I don't understand what people say all the time.
