Despite tackling a cliche societal issue, Meeting Funmi's Parents manages to subvert the plot archetype, executing an unexpected twist midway that changes what you think you know about certain 'stereotypical' characters.

Omowunmi Dada stars as the eponymous character who must convince her parents that race is inconsequential when your heart yearns for the one it wants.

Roman Thomson plays the doe-eyed, lovestruck boyfriend who must deal with his girl's doting father who dislikes him and everything he stands for.

Both actors look good together and the humour works wonders, thanks to Akin Lewis who portrays the protagonist's doting father. His deadpan expression when he delivers his sarcastic lines makes the ticket price for this movie worth it.

The story here has lessons for everyone but the most prominent one is how we often misjudge people based on what we think we know about them.

I expected a mediocre story and got a rather engaging one with nuanced characters and a welcome arc for its central character. 

When it comes to the acting, Omowunmi Dada and Akin Lewis are the standouts for me. Timini Egbuson, who is the past boyfriend is sadly overshadowed here due to script limitations.

For the life of me, I couldn't fathom why the film had to end on a cliffhanger but I guess that means there are plans for a sequel or the length was so long that it had to be cut in half.

Anyways, Meeting Funmi's Parents is worth watching.
