Longtime couple Basha (Bea Alonzo) and Popoy (John Lloyd Cruz) are practically inseparable, so when they split up, it's not surprising how heartbroken each feels. But Basha, stifled by the ... See full summary »
I am not an expert in pinoy flicks having watched only a handful of them. Some dramas that I loved before this were "crying ladies" and "Everything About Her"and this movie grabbed my attention as it seemed similar. I started watching this with pretty low expectations but was surprised to see how well made it was.
The poster might lead you to believe that this is a "LOL" kind of movie and will have overacted histrionics comprising the comical scenes. But that's not the case at all. This is a well thought and well acted "dramedy" that you can enjoy with anyone ranging from friends, siblings to parents.
The story revolves around 4 sisters who dote on their youngest brother CJ. Once they hear that he has decided to marry a girl he just met, they embark on a mission to stop the wedding at any cost and save their "baby brother" from yet another heartbreak.
Every single person in the cast was really delightful. They remain in their character throughout and deliver a very good and likable performance.
The film might seem like a outright comedy to some but it turned out to be something a lot more than what the poster depicts. It not only deals with the mission to stop a wedding but emotions and feelings all the sisters and their mother harbor for each other. In the beginning it seems like a picture perfect family. And although they love each other the film progresses at a great pace to show the bitter sweet relation between the sisters themselves and their mother. The movie never gets to heavy apart from one scene at the end. But that scene too, though a bit sappy, is filmed to near perfection. The dialogue was just marvelous and the final sequence had a lot to reveal in a really well scripted manner.
My advice is to not pass this as a clichéd "chick flick". This movie has lot more heart than what would one guess initially.
