Passes with Literally Flying Colors
11 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

The film was so funny and entertaining in general. The acting of Eric Quizon was definitely the best. He was so convincing and very funny at most times. He really showed off the flamboyancy of a open gay man. Kris Aquino also portrayed her character very well, and in my opinion Kris was perfect to play Lianna so I think Kris had no trouble doing the film. I was disappointed by the four Starstruck finalists namely Mark, Jennylyn, Yasmien and Rainier. Rainier and Yasmien were the weakest. I thought Yasmien's role was so boring, and so was Rainier's. They didn't show much of their being a love team and seemed like they didn't show much emotion or too much emotion at times.

The film in general is very entertaining. It's good for laughs and very realistic. The whole "Yayaman din ako" line is typical of a girl like Lianne, the love affair of Wena and her boyfriend was also very common among Filipino teenagers. Jay-R's role made Kris' character, Lianne look cheap but then again it's also common for some older women to think a relationship with younger and handsome man possible. The film is like the story of many typical Filipinos, it so colorful and pleasant that it's a real good and recommended film to watch. I enjoyed a lot.

On the downside, some parts are too corny, like when Kris was crying at Wena's wedding... surely you would not seriously cry because you spent so much money! When Osmond was left by Oliver at church, the whole matrix effects were a little silly. Sometimes some scenes were exaggerated, especially in the scene where Lianne and Osmond were arguing about Wena's real father. They were too specific and acted sounded like they really wanted Wena to hear the sad news, speaking in loud volume and repeating the important lines in continuity until it came to the point Raphie and Wena obviously will overhear and argue as well.

The film I think deserves a 7/10 overall. Could have been better but still a film worth watching during the Manila Film Fest or if your looking for a good romantic comedy with a little wit and intelligence.
