This feels a lot like the big, messy home movie of a family you don't really want to know. The characters are self-centered and, with one exception, seem to value money and living ostentatiously large above all else. One brother is "Big Money" Famzy, an inept rapper. American viewers unfamiliar with Nigerian in-jokes and personalities won't know that the actor playing him, Folarin "Falz" Falana, is a well-known Nigerian rapper, law school graduate, and political activist. So the irony of him playing a talentless dope will probably be lost on a U.S. audience. The movie may well be filled with other clever touches, but only those viewers willing to do some research will know it.

Still, it's painful to hear not one, not two, but three separate performances of the "artist" Famzy's same awful song. (Lyrics include, "I am still richer than you!") Proven liars repeatedly chime, "Trust me." The movie seems loosely scripted as scenes go on repetitively at great length with actors seemingly winging lines as they go. Performances are demonstrations of lung power for the most part, with most encounters starting with at least one person yelling and ending almost inevitably with all involved shouting at the top of their lungs. With no modulating direction and no subtlety, this is a long, hard slog that will best be appreciated by friends and family of those in the cast and crew.
