This was a film written, produced and starring a woman about a guy who bets his friends that he can bed any three ex-girlfriends they choose for him to target within three weeks. The only reason I selected it was because I thought a female director could do something interesting with this premise. The audience was filled with Nigerians who laughed uproariously frequently. I sat in basically stoney silence disconcerted by the predatory behaviour on screen. I really wanted to like this film, because Omoni Oboli was so personably, charming, and intelligent in the film’s introduction and Q&A, but this film is deeply regressive and its lead far creepier than charming.
