It’s a Lot

This is a comedy?

81ueN4XpxBL._SL1500_Shaun’s a lucky boy – growing up he’s had the right education, parents that loved him and he’s never been short of cash. But as he gets older, he finds he doesn’t fit into this world, especially with the self-righteous kids at his posh private school. Deliberately deceiving his family, he enrols at his cousin’s college where he discovers an untouched world of girls, parties and excitement. Desperate to make a name for himself, he tries to impress the top girl, Chrissy, by holding a party for her at his mansion. But all he manages to do is trash the place and even destroy his dad’s prized Lotus! He’s left with two weeks to find £20,000 before his parents get back from holiday and his dad goes tribal. He devises a plan to make some quick money, but he’s going to have to risk everything and tell a whole lot of lies to the people he loves most. Will he try and get away with it and be the top boy he always wanted to be, or will he come clean and face the music? When things get out of hand….

So we’ve got “Kidulthood” and “Adulthood”, personally I liked this two films but I always thought why don’t they do comedy? Then in 2011 they made “Anuvahood” which I personally loved! So when I heard Femi Oyeniran was doing a comedy called “It’s a Lot” I was excited! Could it be as good as or even better than “Anuvahood”?

Now before I say anything this film does have a positive message behind it, but last time I checked it was listed under comedy… Honestly there were very few moments that I actually laughed and most of them involved Kojo (Who is actually the best part of this film), other than that this films was rubbish. The acting was rubbish, the jokes were “Swag” and the narrative was ok at best.

I expected more from Femi Oyeniran, very disappointed…

My advice watch “Anuvahood” instead, seen that? Then watch “Friday”, ”Next Friday” and “Friday After Next” because that’s how a real comedy film should be done.
