When comedian, actor, philanthropist Steve Harvey said “men are dumb,” he had to be thinking about Victoria’s insecure husband, Brad Wilson, played by Grayson Berry, in the soon-to-be released, Unfavorable Odds.

For some reason Brad just doesn’t get it and he could lose everything that is important to him in this romantic comedy that was filmed partly in Dallas and features several locals.

This is Dallas businessman Corey “C.T. “Toney’s first major big screen production and if Unfavorable Odds is any indication of what future endeavors will be, folks are going to become very familiar with his name and his works.

Locals will love seeing familiar landmarks that include the upscale restaurant/club: Michael’s, in Las Colinas, and the catering truck of OMG Cakes & Southern Best Catering,, L.L.C.


Toney shares writer credits with Edna Janeen White and Tony D. White in this tale of a man who makes a dumb bet that involves his wife and one of his best friends,
played by Maria Tornberg and Charles Ambrose, respectively.

Ambrose’s character, Wes, is charming, witty, smart, sexy, romantic and attentive; everything that a woman could hope for and every woman he approaches falls under this playboy’s spell.

Hopefully Victoria won’t!

And then there’s the other best friend, Kenny, played by Charles Malik Whitfield, who appears to be the only one of the three best buds who acts like he has common sense. Despite his continued protests and claims that the bet was a bad idea, his friends moved forward.

And although it was a packed house at Dallas’ Angelika Theatre for the premiere over the weekend, everyone else will have to wait until the release date, in early September 2022, to find out just how dumb men are and what can happen when you make a dumb bet.


Directed by Boogievision, Unfavorable Odd receives a very favorable review! It’s just further evidence that there’s a lot of great talent right in Dallas!
