Review

Recommended. ‘Don’t Get Mad, Get Even’ is a mighty fun flick. Highly entertaining and boisterously funny, there’s no regret to be had here. With great acting from everyone plus exceptionally captivating and delicious playboy attitude from Femi Jacobs, seeing ‘Don’t Get Mad, Get Even’ is plenty of joy. If there’s a problem with it, and there is: It has to be that it is damn too long. Too long. Clocking in at a solid Two Hours and Twenty Three minutes, this movie is hard to finish.

“Hard” as in towards end it takes energy to stick it out. The producers didn’t just know where to stop – A problem we keep seeing with many Nollywood movies and producers – Their inability to recognize their moment of greatest impact; that perfect time to close the screen and send the audience out in a frenzy of satisfaction. In ‘Don’t Get Mad, Get Even’, they reach that moment and pass it, spending another fifteen minutes tiring out their audience. Thankfully, the dragging doesn’t completely ruin the experience.
