Beauty Queens, Manly Men, and A Big Old Queen in A Forgotten Filipino Camp Classic
1 September 2006 | by (Philippines and United States) – See all my reviews

"Temptation Island" is easily one of the funniest, wittiest Filipino films I've seen. Filipino humor, in film at least, automatically means slapstick so to see witty humor by itself is a big deal, much less one done well. Dina Bonnevie, Azenith Briones, and Bambi Arambulo deliciously play catfighting beauty queens ultimately ending up fighting for their survival in, oh yes, baby … Temptation Island! Don't ask how the heck beauty queens end up in a deserted island, just enjoy this deliberately silly early 80's film featuring a very young Dina Bonnevie, still very much active in Philippine cinema and approaching icon status, and her future "love team" partner the late Alfie Anido. The hilarious crowd is completed by two studly studs, including the late Filipino male sex symbol Ricky Belmonte, a highly stereotypical tragicomic screaming queen, and the Filipino film staple, the oppressed house maid (played by actress Debraliz?). Directed by gay fixture Joey Gosiengfiao, the film is definitely not without its faults but it's fun while it lasts. No DVD copies exist as far as I know so good luck finding a decent VHS copy.
