      Barbara Shulgasser Common Sense Media 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. Rated: 2/5 Jan 18, 2022 Full Review John Serba Decider Chief Daddy 2 is an unfocused mess, which would be tolerable if it only made us laugh more often. Jan 8, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member CHIEF DADDY 2," REVIEW:A HUMONGOUS ARTISTIC WASTE... https://kongireviews.wordpress.com/2022/01/09/a-humongous-artistic-waste/ Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member "Chief Daddy 2" managed to get all the fundamentals of a good film wrong, asides from good photography, of which that credit, in large parts, should go to modern technology. So what are those things that put fans off- no way near a bang for their bucks in "Chief Daddy 2: Going for Broke?" 1. Missing Plot A significant part of the first Chief Daddy film felt random and lifeless; without a convincing story, enough to pull the kind of star-studded cast it did. However, Nollywood glamour has fostered so much success in recent times so, it is excusable. But it makes one wonder, why return to continue the same lifeless plot?

Very few scenes in "Chief Daddy 2" seemed to have been the product of any thought process, and with the quality of talent at their disposal, it is clear the only thing the filmmakers did a little brainstorming about was money. 2. Awful Screenplay Awful indeed, but only if there was really a script. One can actually argue there wasn't any, and the cast just said or played out what came to mind. It's definitely not every day you find incredible actors struggling to make good dialogues- but that was how much they struggled in this film.

Make no mistake, comedy is hard, but it is also based on facts. How does a footballer sit out an entire football season that's not even begun because of a grade 3 hamstring? It is insulting to the knowledgeable many who take football seriously in this country. 3. Horrible Costuming Costuming is a cardinal point of film-making. There's an Oscar award for costuming. Yes! You don't just show up on set wearing what you have or like because you're a big star. The costuming in "Chief Daddy 2" was underwhelming, epitomized by Beverley Naya's (Adaora) outfit in the little get-away scene with Mawuli (Dammy) in Dubai below. These three things constitute part of the fundamentals of filmmaking. A collapse in one department is hardly forgivable, but a failure in all three departments is colossal, even for a newcomer. And an established production house like the Ebony Life Group and Mo Abudu should know better. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member If "unnecessary" was a movie, this would be it. This unwarranted sequel to a barely manageable movie checks all the boxes on the recipe list of how not to make a movie. Bad dialogue delivered robotically by a star studded cast that clearly did not want to be there -check, convoluted plot - check, terrible script - check. Not worth your time or mine, skip by all means. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member What a waste of time! Star studded casts with no story to tell. Zero sense of direction nor any reasonable theme....too much distraction from the family theme of part one....🙄 Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Horrible! Oh my God! I'd managed to view the Part 1 because I'd anticipated something brilliant with the mesh of creatives and acts in the first part. But this? Wait, what was Ebony Life TV thinking about doing such a below subpar movie with disjointed subplots, no storyline, waste of very good actors, and just a downright ridiculous and boring movie? The ratings should even be a negative because I just couldn't believe the utter crap they produced! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member No head, no tail, bad script, absolute waste of time and expensive rubbish. Movie was such a pain to watch. I highly do not recommend.
