Rocco Espiritu (Xian Lim) and Rocky Espiritu (Kim Chiu) have one thing in common: they are both in need of money, fast. On the eve of his 25th birthday and the day he is set to receive money from his trust fund, Rocco parties, gets drunk, and loses all his money on a poker match. Now he has to produce the amount or else lose the client he needs to defeat his father's TV commercials production company. Meanwhile, Rocky needs to pay the rent or else, her whole family will be homeless. The only way for Rocco to get the money from his trust fund is to fulfill the conditions set by his grandmother: that is, to get married.

A Trust Mistrusted - Bride For Rent Review
22 January 2014 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

From Market Market Taguig to Glorietta Cinemas, we were a bit disappointed that the fourth day of Bride For Rent in the cinemas still shows long lines (and I mean looonnngg lines) and full-packed movie theaters. We ended up watching the film the next day at SM Megamall instead.

My initial impression of the movie would be romantic comedy. It turns out to be combination of romantic - comedy plus drama.

The story started with Rocco (Xian Lim) a playboy who does not believe in commitment, was indebted and needed the release of his trust fund to finance an advertising project and to pay a debt from the casino. Unfortunately, the said fund can only be released if this bachelor will get married hence, hired Rocky/Raquelita (Kim Chiu) to pose as bride.

The plot heats up when the bogus wedding that they arranged was supplemented with true feelings of love.

Xian's character maybe a bit exaggerated at the start of the movie especially with the comedy part where he tends to put some extra effort to be funny but tended to be a great acting when it comes to drama and romance.

Kim Chiu on the other hand was consistent with her acting to her past projects. Her acting on this film maybe 90% compared to her "My Binondo Girl" project. Hilarious but poised Kim Chiu did well on this movie.

Though the finale was rushed. There should have been more spice during the forgiveness and courtship before real wedding took place. But all in all, the movie was well presented in a manner that touched every movie goer's heart to tears.
