A remake of the original focusing on the lives of ladies whose affiliation with the wealthy and powerful gives them the affluence they desire.
Play Network once again produces an unnecessary remake and the final result is a film that could have gone somewhere but ends up being all over the place.
While Glamour Girls isn't as bad as the critics are making it out to be, it embraces style over substance, with too many subplots and different threads that fail to tie into a satisfying conclusion.
The title pretty much sums up the movie; girls who want a taste of a better life use what they have to get what they want.
It's all fun and games until a murder threatens to destroy them and everything that they have built.
The storyline is basically a rehash of every 'runs girl' film ever made but the script is elevated a bit by some impressive acting from Nse Ikpe-Etim and Sharon Ooja.
The cinematography is okay; good shots, camera angles and scene transition work well. The music which comes across as distracting occasionally majorly helps to set the mood and tone as the plot unfolds.
The film's undoing is its inability to focus on some of the many subplots it has. Some characters are never quite developed while others are more or less one-dimensional.
Perhaps the movie's greatest flaw is the issue with the flash drive(s) in the end. For the life of me, I still can't understand how one flash became two without any plausible explanation.
Play Network's remake is flashy and stylish but gets sapped into its own convoluted plot.
Ikpe-Etim and Ooja are the best parts of the film but even they aren't enough to stop the movie from sinking into an abyss of its own making.
