Today’s review is done by O.Cube of Cinema Movie Pointer!
a visit to a famous Pastor, they somehow wake up in each other’s
bodies. Is it a miracle or a curse? Who knows? Unable to switch back,
they are forced to masquerade as each other until a solution can be
found. They couldn’t save their marriage as themselves, can they save it
as each other? (Written by FilmHouse Cinemas)

Verdict: Brave. Exhausting. Mildly funny. ‘My Wife and I’
fails to score! Like a soccer legend out of his prime, ‘My Wife and I’
serves up a consistent string of misses. Hitting the cross bar over and
over again, it leaves its audience flustered and demoralized. Contrary
to the hype, ‘My Wife and I’ is not a must-see. We went in fired up! We
came out deflated.
And so, in our interactions with several members of the audience
afterwards the one reoccurring quote was- “It’s just there”. Because
ultimately, when the hype is stripped away, you will come to find that
‘My Wife and I’ is all glitter, no oomph- Just another Nollywood movie. A
conclusion proved right by the prevalence of sober faces as we trooped
out of the hall.
Nevertheless, we give the producers an ‘A’ for effort, for daring to
take on a unique plot-twist brimming with obvious difficulties. An
ambitious and brave effort indeed. Unfortunately, viewers don’t pay for
effort. We pay for goals. And ‘My Wife and I’ failed to deliver.
Resulting in eerily long periods of dead silence, sparingly interrupted
by muffled giggles, from what was an obviously unimpressed audience.
