Experiencing the forbidden. Experiencing rejection. Hating your parents. Hating the world around you. Discovering what's hot. Discovering what's cool. Discovering your first true love. Discovering who you are. Growing up can be such a wild time. But not when you've got the best guys to hang out with. Five chaste young men immerse themselves in the superficialities and superfluity of adolescence over the course of their last year in high school. But as they make their gradual transition from boyhood to manhood, they realize it is their formidable bond that stands as the real deal. Starring a generation that gave rise to a new youth culture.

This movie is sheer genius. It's hilarious. Especially if you take it in the present context. Costumes pa lang matatawa ka na. The script is good. Hilarious. But the part I like least was William Martinez's lecture towards the end. I like his story the least. Script and story is much better than today's Filipino movies' script and story. Aga Muhlach trying to dance like Michael Jackson. I especially like Herbert Bautista's character. Skinny, clumsy, awkward, fellow. Cute. I especially like the scene where he bikes in circles in front of his crush's house. Typical torpe kid. I wish I could go back in time and just live during those moments.
