A horrible showcase of Filipino cinema
9 July 2007 | by (Edmonton, AB, Canada) – See all my reviews

I know next to nothing about Filipino cinema but I hope to God 'Ako Legal Wife' is an exception rather than an example.

Ten minutes into the movie, my sister, who was also watching with me, stopped paying attention. I stuck it out hoping that the best was yet to come. Sadly, I was highly disappointed for the next two or so hours.

The storyline is not only hard to follow but completely shallow. When did Elton get married to his other wives? Why the heck were Zsa Zsa Padilla and Cherry Pie Picache's characters so intent on staying with their unfaithful husband, who, despite the film's attempt to make it appear towards the end to point out that he actually did love his wives, didn't appear to give a damn about them at all. Not only is the story shallow, so are the characters.

The two things that kept this movie from getting a rating of one from me was the part where Patty and Chona come face to face at the dinner party (definitely a classic diva moment) and the part where Patty tries to keep her son from leaving and accidentally rips off his shirt to reveal his tattoo. It's so far-fetched it's funny. And well, Picache is good enough to deliver a great performance of a mother going hysterical over her baby 'mutilating' his skin with permanent ink.

Everything else is just not funny. John Prats' Hamilton is so stereotypically gay that there's nothing novel or entertaining about the character or Prats' performances. Trixia & Nixon? Do we care? And after over two hours of trying to find the point of this movie, I can't really say I care to know now.
