Weekend Getaway It is one weekend of fun, drama, intrigue, suspense and action at the Le Meriden Hotel, Ibom. The production values are high: the lighting, sound and editing are excellently executed. There are quite a few laugh-out-loud-till-your-sides-hurt scenes where the comedy just happens naturally. Alex Ekubo, who plays the gigolo (Andre Dike) to Yolanda (Monalisa Chinda), is a delight to watch. The soundtrack was well arranged and complemented the story beautifully. For a movie based on the events of a single weekend, the plot is complex enough for several films which can be confusing.Two hours is too short.
