Crazy Grannies 2021: Wiki, Cast, Ratings, Director, Actors, Plot, Release Date, Songs, Trailer, Broadcasting Rights, Hit or Flop, Reviews! After what 2020 and 2021 have put us through, surely a good, old comedy movie is just what we need! However, is Crazy Grannies a movie that delivers, or is this just another film that flops once it hits theatres? If you’re familiar with Nollywood films, you probably know that they often suffer from a specific issue: the inability to provide well-written, expertly-delivered comedy that not only is relatable to the audience but invokes genuine laughs as well. The general plot of this movie certainly leaves plenty of opportunities for funny gags, but ultimately, the movies’ success or failure comes down to the individual performances of the actors & actresses involved. So, is this movie worth watching (and worth paying your hard-earned money for)? Let’s find out!

Crazy Grannies 2021

Crazy Grannies 2021 Plot:

We know it happens, but MILFs isn’t a topic that’s talked about too often in real life. Even though there are dozens of dating platforms and dedicated communities to MILFs dating that offer the opportunity for anyone to meet a stunning older woman online to date, some still are too shy to acknowledge that they are attracted to these hotties. Nonetheless, romance plays a key role in this tale, which centers around three grandmothers: Cheta, Ere, and Omodele. The three are old-time friends who have stayed in touch throughout the years but now are in their sixties and find themselves faced with a tough choice: to accept their age and roles as grandmothers or to go and party one more time. Omodele has had health issues in the past, but the trio decides to head off to a resort for an adventure anyway. One is never too old for a little romance, and things seem to pick up speed once Omodele meets her new romance, Austel!

Crazy Grannies 2021 Reviews:

Crazy Grannies has received mixed feedback from critics. Although many fans were eagerly awaiting the release of this movie, it appears to have missed the mark for at least part of them. While many of its gags were funny in concept, a lot of criticisms about the movie were aimed towards the delivery of the jokes and subpar actor/actress performances.
