An entertaining and romantic movie. A good "Chick Flick"
Textbook recipe of a chick flick. Copying the Hollywood model where a romantic story is laced with a serious agenda. In this movie the struggle between low class, poorly educated and high class well educated society is well visualized. The movie is well packed with funny scenes without pushing the movie on to be a comedy. There are also enough tear dripping scenes to awaken strong feelings for the characters in the movie. I wouldn't say that the actors are the best I've seen, but then again I don't know the Philippines, the culture nor the people. I enjoyed that the movie was spoken mainly in Filipino, even though I don't understand a word of the language. It just feels so wrong when you see a flick from a non English speaking country and all the actors are speaking English. It's almost as bad a watching an old American western that is dubbed.
All in all I'd say this movie was refreshing and well worth the watch.
