Best Comedy Film of MMFF 2012
1 January 2013 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

Besides the fact that Filipinos in the Philippines celebrate Christmas commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, we also celebrate the craft and creativity of local movie producers with the Metro Manila Film Festival. It is the biggest film festival that producers and moviegoers are waiting all year round. This year, 2012, 'Sisterakas' of Star Cinema was an official entry.

First things first, we have to acknowledge the fact that "Sisterakas" is a very good comedy film. You would be dubbed as numb if you haven't laughed all the time inside the cinema as there were many scenes which are very relatable and funny.

The producers had the guts as they had Jose Marie Viceral (Vice Ganda), awarded the Phenomenal Box Office Actor of 2011 for "The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin," Ai Ai Delas Alas which was dubbed as the Comedy Queen, and Kris Aquino, the Philippine's Queen of All Media.

One of the highly commendable things about the film is that they targeted the heart of every audience. It was suited for mature and non-mature audiences. They made it funny in a way that you wouldn't even notice that they are making you laugh because they did it as if they are just hosting a variety show or talk show.

Second, it is highly noticeable that the cinematography of the latter films of Wenn Deramas (i.e.: "This Guy's in Love with You Mare" and "Sisterakas") improved a lot comparing it from his past movies. However, we must be very keen in criticizing the cinematography and the screen play as there were some goofs and errors existing in some scenes.

Third, I believe that putting family drama, horror, and family rivalry into a comedy film is something we can consider their edge. It is good that they were able to create a wholesome comedy film combining these genres of movie.

Lastly, this may appear inconsiderate for my part, but I believe ABS-CBN Film Productions need to improve on their video quality as it is not that HD compared to some other films out there.
