Storyline

Antonio Chan, a prominent Chinese businessman, has three women in his life v Sol, a Filipina; Lu Shui, a Chinese; and Belinda, a Filipino-Chinese. Antonio has children with all three women. A crisis shakes up the over-extended Tsinoy family prompting all the members to re-examine their values, their relationships, and confront issues that they have refused to face all these years. With Mano Po 2, My Home, Regal Entertainments continues the tradition established by the critical and box-office hit Mano Po. Features strong dramatic performances from a stellar ensemble cast, lush visuals, a reverberating musical score, an unforgettable theme song, and a heart-warming screenplay that eloquently captures the rich Tsinoy culture. Laugh, cry, and be touched by this family story about forgiveness, healing and undying love. Written by regal

Trivia

Kris Aquino was supposed to play the role of the third wife, but preferred the role of the first wife. The producer initially wanted Dina Bonnevie to play the wicked role, but Lorna Tolentino - already in the cast - wanted it too. The producer selected Lorna after the actress vowed not to work in the project if the role was not given to her. See more »

Enough is Enough!
28 December 2003 | by (Pasig, Philippines) – See all my reviews

if you find the first one bad, the second one is no different at all! well, maybe, slightly less bad than the first. Performances were convincing except for Zsazsa Padilla playing a chinese ...the greatest miscast of all! Unimpressive when it comes to performance, yet tolerable acting too since it brought unintended laughs. alessandra de rossi's character was completely unnecessary. it is an outright embarrassment for this fine actress to be casted in what i call an "extra role"! shame! what about the chinese-loves-filipino-relationship of richard gutierrez and chynna ortaleza? wasn't that overly done already in the first movie?! been there, done that! like the first Mano Po, the biggest flaw lies in the script! the story is bland, too melodramatic, lacks originality and undoubtedly predictable. the same old story of a philandering husband with a couple of wives... he just happens to be chinese. the only commendable thing about this movie is the colorful production design and the luscious cinematography. clearly, filipino viewers would be bored to death when the producers featured ordinary filipinos in the story. so i guess, they had to make the characters filipino-chinese in order to amuse ordinary filipino moviegoers on how they transformed mestizo actors to look and talk chinese and probably to amuse the audience too by showcasing overdone chinese traditions and age-old cultures in the film which ordinary filipino viewers may actually find amusing! i guess next year, we should all hope for a MANO PO-Free christmas in the filmfest!!! Enough is Enough!
