Picture Perfect Movie Plot and Review
The trailer alone is worth more of a thousand reason to get one butt down and enjoy to the fullest, what our American brought up bring to the screen. Most weren’t expecting such performance from Bolanle Ninalowo who played the role of Jobe very perfectly. Not only was the acting superb but its visual and quality also added to its accreditions.
The story all started with Kumbi, a fashion designer (tailor) who finds herself in a precarious situation one night, when on her way to deliver wares to a customer, her car breaks down in an unsafe area of town. Some area boys try to hustle her and Jobe comes to the rescue, but their acquaintances became a sour one the next day as Kumbi refuses to settle him properly for watching over her car.
He angrily and forcefully takes over her car, camping on her bonnet as he swallows his amala and ewedu for lunch. A furious Kumbi calls a police officer to arrest the miscreant who is violating her privacy. Unfortunately, Kumbi finds out that the police is ‘truly your friend,’ in this case, Jobe is their very good friend.
After their hostile encounter, Jobe decides to further infuriate Kumbi more by setting up his ‘camp’ right beside her tailoring shop, disturbing her daily activities with his loud indigenous music and other illegal activities. At this point, seeing as there has been no amicable or emotion-charged moments between Jobe and Kumbi, A fast friendship develops from there, eventually leading to one night of heart breaks, candid conversations, drinks and sex. The next morning after being hit by realization, Kumbi avoids Jobe like a plague. Things worsen when she finds out she is pregnant for Jobe.
A fashion designer and a hoodlum? How likely is that? Not very, right? This made her resolves to keeping him out of the loop and away from her child’s life as he doesn’t fit into her perfect picture of a husband-father figure. Jobe on the other hand tries to prove that he deserves a spot in the life of his child. He struggles to convince Kumbi that he may not be picture perfect but he deserves to be a father to his child.
He eventually gives up his old ways for a reformed and more composed man. All these culminated to an ending that elicited laughter and tears. So many lessons were taught in this mind blowing movie which the most important one was that the picture doesn’t have to be perfect for it to work just fine!.
No human is perfect and everyone deserves to be treated fairly, more reason I give this movie a props for being different. It should be the spirit of most movie and it should be the law of the land.
I enjoyed watching it as the movie picture perfect was almost a perfect picture. I loved how it wasn’t just any story but one that teaches us about love, class struggles, positive effects of kids on parents and the need/availability for self-improvement.
The ending of this movie was top-notch and I loved every bit of it. At the end of this movie, I was close to shedding tears as Jobe now Jaiyeola really drew the audience in with his “I am a changed man” speech but the urge were nothing compared to the loud, heartfelt laughter that ripped out of my mouth the moment he named the baby Jobestina.
Some words such as “philandering” was learnt in almost joking way. Exactly what I always thought what is a movie without learning one or two things from it? Yes! I recommend Picture Perfect if you want to have a memorable day. If you are feeling one type of way and you want to feel better. If you just want to have a good time. It is not just filled with relatable comedy but it’s also full of substance.
Even between the laughter, I learnt that there are times when things don’t always go as imagined but that’s why it’s LIFE. Make good use of what happens. See the rainbow after the rain.
So stop PHILANDERING about and go see picture perfect.
