‘Glamour Girls’ ranks top 5 on Netflix despite bad reviews
Charles Okpaleke’s Nollywood classic remake, Glamour Girls, has been ranked among Flix Patrol’s global top-five streaming on Netflix.
Since its debut on June 24, the highly anticipated movie had mostly received bad reviews across all social media platforms.
Random viewers and other Nollywood producers had faulted the overall execution of the two-hour project including its storyline, scenes, and dialogues.
However, Flix Patrol, a streaming data aggregator site, put out a June 28 list of top 10 titles showing on Netflix globally and sitting in the fifth place is Glamour Girls despite the heavy negative feedback the film amassed after its Netflix debut.
Reacting to the criticism, the CEO of Play Networks, and producer of the movie, Charles Okpaleke, had taunted naysayers, saying “it is already breaking record”.
Netflix rarely releases data but this makes Glamour Girls the first Nollywood title to hit the top five on Flix Patrol.
In the first to fourth places are The Man From Toronto, Love And Gelato, Hustle, and Spiderhead respectively.
The remake of the 1994 Nollywood blockbuster features the likes of Nse Ikpe-Etim, Joselyn Dumas, Toke Makinwa, and Sharon Ooja.
It dwells on four single women caught in a web of questionable jobs in Nigeria’s traditionally patriarchal society.
Flix Patrol is known to gather all possible streaming data about movies and TV shows “to help producers better understand viewers’ taste and popularity moods towards creating better and more successful films and TV shows.”
