KFB Movie Review: When Love Happens Again was disappointing and shouldn’t have been made…

For the Newbies, the KFB movie review is an every Friday column that
gives you a cinema guide on which movies to watch and not watch! You can
check out our other reviews (HERE).
Verdict: Overall, disappointing! Not terrible, or
unwatchable, as to be avoided, but “disappointing”, as indicative of a
sickening let-down for huge fans of ‘When Love Happens‘, the first (HERE).

Fifteen minutes in, the excitement juice flowing, we paused for a moment
and wrote down- “This movie is beautiful! The art form is sublime and
powerful; it’s indescribable”; saved it and continued watching,
believing that by the time we were done, it would have earned way more
in accolades than those first fifteen minutes managed to conjure in our
spirits. But seventeen minutes in, and the stupid kicked-in, and
downhill it went from there on. Never to recover.

The acting was quite good; well above average. But between Mo and
friends, the fake-ness was palpable! Leaving us wondering if this was
made for Nigerian audiences or Britons? On top of that, there was such
an annoying level of forcefulness to the story telling, plus a terrible
lack of realism; so much so, that no matter how much you rooted for this
to be great, you can’t help but feel utterly irritated.

The comedy was average at best; meaning there were good chunks, but most
of it, and that is the vast majority, was more contrived than silky.
Can’t place an exact finger on it, but it just didn’t have that ice
cream effect; it felt rushed and convoluted, all at once. Phew!

Ultimately, in the light of the extreme beauty that was ‘When Love Happens‘, ‘When Love Happens Again’ is a travesty that shouldn’t have been made.

Grudgingly, recommended.
