Hilarious
3 September 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Even Mike de Leon has a sense of humor. This film not only pokes fun at commercial imperialism, but also at the little dictators who control the Philippine economy - the Chinese movie producers and the Catholic church. George Javier stands out as the idol of the imperialist colonizers. He still maintains his bumbling persona, in an unusually somber manner. The animation is put to good use (watch the battle of the subtitles between the Japanese and the Chinese!) A winner all the way!
