Hello All,

The honeymoon period tends to last anywhere between 6 months and a year.  The relationship still feels fresh and exciting, and you're constantly learning new things about each other and having first experiences together.  But there comes a point when suddenly you've done all that stuff together already.  Then follows the uninvited in-laws into the room next door and the institution known as marriage begins…  

Welcome to destination Dubai.

In 1992 the Nigerain film industry was introduced to the World {Nollywood} with the release of the title living in bondage. Twenty four years on: in December 2016, the Continent of Africa recorded half a Billion from the box office Nollywood release of The Wedding Party.

This Nollywood franchise title will keep you in * stitches * .  From the opening scene to the end credits.  I never thought in a million years that this film would be as funny as the first installment, guess what! It is comedy Heaven, comedy gold, comedy everything as it is.  The odd pairing of veterans Chiwetalu Agu and Patience Ozokwor pays off tenfold.  Their odd pairing and hilarious antics made me think some of the classic film, "The Odd Couple". The film also reminded me a little of the 2004 release comedy, "Meet the Fockers" because of its off-beat way of bringing the audience into the story.  

The introduction of A new "odd couple", “An accidental proposal” “The In-Laws from two Continents”.. This film knows where its strengths are and it continues the laughs over and over.  The supporting cast were a joy to watch and executed their roles most brilliantly throughout the film.  There are interesting musical/comedic additions, which help put interesting slants and accents on the various scenes.

It is the most anticipated blockbuster movie of the year and I have to say, is by far the funniest movie I have seen this year and would be the biggest release of 2017.  #youcantakethattothebank

So, as I often say! whatever the case may be, however the week is going, everyone needs a little relaxation time as often as possible and it remains our pleasure to offer you that and so much more, because your comfort remains our priority. Until next year stay blessed and Merry Christmas in advance.
