SYNOPSIS: have you ever wondered why married men and women still cannot resist that one person they dated far back in the university?

This movie goes against the law that straight men and women can’t be just friends. It argues that once friends’ benefits from one another, those benefits and friendship last for life. Rooted in the lesson of lost which is viral in this era. This saucy romantic comedy further establishes Omoni Oboli as Nigeria’s answer to Nancy Meyers and Lena Dunham.

Terminator (Blossom Chukwujekwu) is known by his best friend Fox and Baptist to be successful serial seducer, conflict arose when he ends up in bed with an old flame right after her engagement ceremony to another man. Terminator explains, once there is a strong sexual spark between two people, it never dies; they can rekindle it even though wives or husbands seem to come in the way. Proving it, his friend demand. And so the challenge begins.

Baptist and fox brings three women that terminator must re-seduce within six weeks, meaning he had seduced the three girl before then brought for another round to prove his point was right; a churchgoing banker, a workaholic businesswoman, and the second wife of a wealthy, neglectful husband. The stakes? Valuable shares in a farm, and Terminator status as king of machos (a person who tends to display manly characteristics, such as domineering, fierceness and bravado.

Omoni Oboli, whose last film wives on strike was one of this year’s biggest Nollywood hits, has struck a chord with the audience by cutting straight to the heart of romance and sexual games men and women play with one another. As we watch terminator scheme to get the three women back to bed purely to impress his friends.

ELEMENT OF PRODUCTION:

SOUND EFFECT:

Sound was properly utilized in the movie. Unlike movies where the theme song is sung all through suspense, drama and all. But the sounds used in the movie properly suited each scene and also a very clear camera views clear shots and acting.
