This was a big hit in the theaters for the past two weeks already. I was curious because of the good word of mouth. My wife suddenly got the urge to watch it last night. So finally, we got to see this much talked-about big screen debut of TV comic Eugene Domingo as a lead performer, playing both title characters, Kimmy and Dora.
The main story line is quite basic. Kimmy and Dora are twins with sharply contrasting personalities. While Kimmy is smart but heartless, Dora is slow-witted but kind. Kimmy is jealous about the attention Dora gets from their Dad (Ariel Ureta) and the nerdy hunk at work (Dingdong Dantes). Their story escalates to the point where Kimmy gets kidnapped and sent to a remote barrio, and Dora needed to impersonate her sister at work.
This whole movie was really a showcase for the comedic talents of Ms. Eugene Domingo. She had always been a funny presence in the supporting roles she played on TV telenovelas and those Bear Brand commercials. She really went all the way in this her first stab at comedy stardom, no holds barred. As you can deduce from the story, the script provides Ms. Eugene the opportunity to display her entire range as an actress. She plays two totally different characters who both underwent life-changing experiences. She had to play each girl distinctly and I believe she succeeded with flying colors. At the end, you will want to give Ms. Eugene a standing ovation for her bravura performance.
As a movie, there are definitely several LOL moments here. There are also some repetitive and corny moments as can be expected from local comedies. Some character motivations can be so exasperatingly inexplicable, but you can excuse them if you just sit back and have fun, instead of being overly analytical. However, this is definitely above average fare. Yes, it can loud, brash, and coarse at points, but you can feel the love, dedication and hard work devoted to this project.
