it's good but overcooked
28 January 2002 | by (manila, philippines) – See all my reviews



I have heard so many good reviews about this film, for me basically the movie is about, how do Filipinos adapt to a very different place. The film entails a lot of challenges in life one has to face especially if not in his homeland. The story is light, sad moments were not so sad, and funny moments were not so funny.

One thing though, the film tends to over explain things, this would have done better. It is one of those movies that equates food into the story, this time i have hardly seen the connection, it did not show up to the mainstream of the movie.

The characters did perform well, though some parts wherein they were acting unnaturally. The script is very light.

Ricky Davao,I should say did very well in the movie, he deserves to be in the list of best actors in the Philippines.

American Adobo tastes good,but it's overcooked. 5/10
