Play Network Studios had one mission when it come on the Nigerian movie scene – fashion nostalgia into a weapon that’ll get the average Nigerian moviegoer talking. And it worked. At least for the first time (Living in Bondage: Breaking Free). Sadly, since then, it’s been vibes and inshallah for this film studio.
Glamour Girls is the latest old Nollywood remake to come from the studio, and like most of its predecessors, it’s seen mixed responses from the audience.
Here’s what I think of Glamour Girls. And here’s what the rest of the netizens are saying about it.
I feel like nollywood should start investing more in the story and the writing than making the film appear expensive.#glamourgirls

“Glamour Girls” plays like they shot a 20-episode series, and then Netflix shouted “what?! Who tell una to do season feem? Na 2-hour feem we tell una na! Oya summarize am!”
So they edited it down to 2 hours, and cut out many things.
Including the plot.

If you watch Glamour girls with expectations, I’m sorry but it’ll be dashed, it’s not a great movie, but it’s not all that bad, it’s just an okay movie that would have been better if the producers tried a little harder. But Sharon Ooja killed her role as always.

How can I watch a movie to the end and it still doesn’t make sense? #glamourgirls

I don’t even like to talk bad about people’s hard work but this movie is too poor for my liking. The storyline does not make sense and they missed the entire plot trying to fit in different unnecessary scenes.
The industry needs to HIRE me. #GlamourGirls

Not me at the end of #GlamourGirls still trying to find the plot.
This has to be worse than Chief Daddy 2

I like the outfits in #glamourgirls but the storyline is all over the place and a bit confusing. Why was Louisa’s (toke)husband shocked when he saw the man in the closet? Who was the man? If it was Fadi why was he shocked? Wasn’t he expecting a guy?

Glamour Girls, which is intended to be a remake of the 90s movie of the same title, is just high-quality footage of cringeworthy scenes, bad acting, and atrocious dialogues. The good thing about the movie is, you don’t have to go far in wasting your data before establishing this.

Who ever directed that scene where Emma and zeribe had sex while chief was downstairs deserve a slap because why? No sense? 🙄 and we didn’t even know how chief reacted to that because he obviously heard them having sex, they just moved away from that. #GlamourGirls

#GlamourGirls on @NetflixNaija suffers from a searing, colorful identity crisis and is a purely rudderless rendezvous of epic proportions. The film simply has NO soul! What we have here are stitched up scenes with little or NO real character depth. pic.twitter.com/LAjiInQ28O

My take on #glamourgirls-impeccable acting from Nse as per usual. Toke still needs acting lessons,Sharon is gradually becoming a force and improving her craft. Story line is as messy as a slay mama’s source of income. A lot of inconsistencies, I would score it 6/10

Just watched #GlamourGirls. Will not recommend. No plot. Sound was horrible. Acting was meh. Trailer hyped it for nothing.

One thing about Charles of play is that you can always tell that he likes shiny things and he never fails to show that in his films ! Any little thing boat cruise 😂😂😂 if you write him a script without boat cruise i doubt he would accept it .😂#glamourgirls https://t.co/hKbp0gOA3o

They only thing giving in #glamourgirls are the suits then Sharon & Nse’s acting. Toke Makinwa didn’t even look like the Louise character. She’s still toke. The movie is all over the place. 4/10 🙏🏼
