I used to hate watching romantic films, especially those Filipino romance movies, because they are too mainstream. Usually, in movies of the same genre, the actors and actresses appear to be overacting, the dialogues are clichéd, the story lines are hackneyed, and the crises are stereotyped. However, this movie is quite different. It just showed that Filipinos can also create their own quality movie.
First: We can clearly see the good acting skills of both John Lloyd Cruz (as Miggy Montenegro) and Sarah Geronimo (as Laida Magtalas). The comedic lines were inserted very smoothly that makes the audience laugh in no time. Such is a great talent, because not everyone can make someone laugh. Also, their portrayals of heavy dramatic scenes were very sharp and bold. Even if one has no experience about love or family rivalry, it is undeniable that almost everyone can relate to their story.
Second: The storyline was well-founded. I love the fact that the producers finally thought of mixing genres so that the flow of the movie will be as exciting as it should be. The combination of having a family drama and romance is already good, but adding comedy is excellent. At least, they are valiant enough to try a different mix of sorts to give the audience new tastes of quality Pinoy movies.
Third: The scenes were virtuous to produce a movie that was never seen in the Philippine cinema ever before. Finally, the altering of clips from the traditional Filipino romance films has come. It is a great feeling that you can feel the 'kilig factor' with the new movie formula they were able to formulate.
Being a technical critic, I would only reprobate some switching of scenes where the lighting and the amount of rainfall changes between clips. I think they could have improved this one because it is quite obvious that the sun is shining on one clip and when it turned to a different angle, it turned darker.
Also, I'd criticize the cinematography. There was not much camera rolling techniques that was used in the movie. Either way, I think this one is not much necessary for a romantic film because still cameras may do for such kind of movie.
Generally, I'd give it a score of 7.
