Movie Review: Moms At War

Completely unpredictable, you won’t see ‘Moms at War’ coming. Forget the suggestive trailers that made you feel you’ve seen it all before- In what is an applaudable deviation from Nollywood norms, the trailers don’t tell the story. Not even half of it. Surprises await you here.

‘Moms at War’ is perhaps the best comedy Nollywood has given us in what seems like forever. Genuinely funny, it is packed with easy-to-connect-with scenarios that are funny all by themselves. But just to push them over the top, is an extravaganza of some of the best acting performances we’ve seen out of Nollywood all year long.

Funke Akindele is easily the elephant in the room. But here, she is no “Jennifa”. She’s just so real and absolutely magnificent. Yet beyond her eminence is a retinue of other great actors that bring their A-Game(s) to bear, making ‘Moms at War’ all round fantastic and lovable. And like we keep saying here at CinemaPointer; what makes it so good, is that it doesn’t try too hard.

Verdict: Very recommended. Nollywood wins with this one- ‘Moms at War’ is a real laugh fest, boasting pounds of freshness and thoughtfulness that will send you jacking back into your seat, laughing hard. Fantastic!

Synopsis: “Moms at War” is about two mothers who live in the same neighborhood, but hate each other.One felt that the other was a village girl who just got into money and is not fit to be in society with them. But both their kids coincidentally attend the same school and there was a competition that was done for the kids, and both were the top of their class.It comes down to one of them winning the competition and the mothers just go crazy, doing all sort of antics. It’s a story of friendship, sisterhood, and bonding in spite of everything.

Starring: Funke Akindele, Omoni Oboli, Yul Edochie, Eucharia Anunobi, Sharon Ooja Egwurube, Michelle Dede, Abayomi Alvin, Adebukola Oladipupo.
