Here are my thoughts:

  • I was supposed to give this 1 of 5 but there was this scene where Ate Shawee cried and I cried and it was a horrible scene but still it made me cry so, so much. You wouldn’t even believe how much I cried.
  • This movie has all the potential in the world – Ate Shawee, an intriguing plot, good first five minutes because of the animation, but then it went downhill from there.
  • Well, let’s just say that it’s not a Cinemalaya-level movie. It’s like watching a very bad sitcom.
  • I have to give it to the two main characters, tho. Sharon Cuneta and Moi Bien have an undeniable chemistry. I would love to see these to in a better-made movie.
  • Sure the movie’s funny, but it didn’t make any sense at all. I feel like the whole plot of the movie was jeopardized because of out of place one-liners, which sometimes were not even that funny.
  • Yes the movie’s entertaining, but it does not redeem the fact that it’s altogether a horrible movie.
  • You want to a good Cinemalaya comedy-slash-drama? Ekstra and First Ko Si Third are perfect examples.
