This isn’t your regular Nollywood movie because it doesn’t have a straight graph as most movies do. In terms of the characterization, we can say the combination of this cast is a bit odd, but not in a bad way. An Nse Ikpe-Etim and Sharon Ooja in a movie, yes, but with a Joselyn Dumas, no one saw that coming, and it was just perfect. The two stars of the movie are Donna (Nse Ikpe-Etim) and Emma (Sharon Ooja). Please give them their flowers because they deserve all the accolades and more. This isn’t the first or second time these two ladies have proven that they were cut from the same cloth as acting. The storyline is one controversial point that has gotten a lot of people screaming out loud, but in reality, it actually has an amazing storyline. The direction of this movie gives insight into the lives of ladies who live on the fast lane. Isn’t it funny how you see some people today and in the next six months, you see them with the latest designer bag, shoes, clothes, and even cars, please how does that kind of success come overnight.

Glamour Girls has a deep storyline that paints the perfect picture of the kind of lives some ladies out there live. We live in a world where people prefer to be lied to, and whenever they see or hear the truth, they turn a blind eye. But Glamour Girls is a wake up call that things are happening, people are dying and no one is looking for them, people are getting richer on other’s back and so much more. Lets dive into the costume and makeup; we have to say it was on point from the beginning to the end. The Glamour part of the girls was well portrayed in this department. We can’t help commend the cinematography and photography as it was clean from the first scene to the last scene. Speaking of scenes, the sex scenes were not so much, but were apt, the moans were definitely correct, lol. One thing that is noticeable in Glamour Girls is the fact that the violence scenes were not shown but instead, its the act that comes after that is shown, if this is a style they adopted in the movie, it came out well.
This movie Glamour Girls is a movie with a high level of relatability considering the level of fast money, fast lives and fast cars that is dominating society today. Glamour Girls gets a 7/10 because it is worth it.
