When producer Tony Gloria watched the Broadway musical "Mama Mia" in 2002, he conceptualized a local musical movie that would feature popular songs by a popular artist. When Gloria noticed that the songs of Apo Hiking Society were revived by various bands and became hits anew, he felt their songs would be great for a movie as it spans many generations, so he talked to APO member, Jim Paredes and signed them up to a contract.

I do Bidoo is indeed a surprise. Chris Martinez, the director, weaves the songs of APO and created a genius movie. The people who have seen it unanimously loved it, because the songs brought the nostalgia and the class back to Philippine cinema.
My personal favorite in the movie are Ewan, Nakapagtataka and the final song, Pagibig. They also paid attention to smaller stories like the love stories of the parents and Sam Concepcion's friend. I also love the homages to songs like Kabilugan ng Buwan ( during the last part) and Kumot and Unan ( during the phone conversation).
I have waited a long time for this movie, something to be proud of, a musical that doesn't end crappy, a comedy that makes you laugh and even drama that thugs the heart. This is a must see for all Filipinos.
