Movie Review: “The Bling Lagosians: The 1% of the 1%” (Nollywood, 2019)

Published on

The Bling Lagosians is a family drama focused on the lives of the Holloways, a Lagos high-class family among others. Outshining everyone in their social class is the forte of Mr & Mrs Holloway even to the detriment of going into debt.

The movie explores humour which totally fails as some of the humour was obviously forced. In a bid to get the audience laughing, Helen Paul‘s character and another kitchen staff exaggerated their acts so bad that it became painful to watch. Did they forget the saying, “Easy does it…”?

And there was Alex Ekubo‘s character with the Igbo accent so terribly faked, you know no Igbo man actually speaks with his thick Igbo accent like this ever.

The only person who managed to get some humour done was Toyin Abraham‘s character.

For a movie that had so many potentials begging to be explored, the movie is lacking in so many parts and there are gap holes needing to be filled with reasons.

One wonders what the problem is and why the storyline goes the way it does.

The ending was poor as though the writer looked at his wristwatch and feeling that time was running out fast, decided to give a typical boring smh-ing close to the movie.

Even if the movie had to have a “happy” ending, why not something a bit more realistic and relatable? Leave the la-la fairytale endings for fairytale movies that can perfectly execute them.

The 2019 Nollywood movie cast consists of Bunmi Aboderin,  Tana Adelana, Toyin Abraham, Bisola Aiyeola, Monalisa Chinda, Osas Ighodaro, and Elvina Ibru amongst others.
