Childhood best friends who are both geniuses in school eventually become bittersweet rivals for campus athlete Mark Ferrer. Zoe Tuazon is a rich, overweight and aggressive mestiza, while Aica Tabayoyong is a poor nerdy student with a bad case of teenage acne and nearsightedness. In an effort to outsmart and outclass each other, Zoe and Aica each undergo cosmetic surgery and become ravishing vixens engaged in ugly confrontations.Written by
It's just another run of the mill, cringe-fest of a Filipino movie. They're again trying to "spice things up" with "fresh ideas" by using a novel concept, but it turns into another pito-pito that follows every other movie's mold.
The intelligence of the script writers are in full display here as they evidently show case little to none of it. Lines that were supposed to develop their characters as intelligent kids were full of inaccurate statements and utter nonsense. It shows the depth of the script writers' ability to come up with sound statements to develop their characters with. The fact that Anne Curtis had to act in a fat suit didn't help it one bit. Either she had a concussion the entire time they were shooting it or the fat suit was too heavy for her jaw to move, whatever the reason, all her lines were delivered like a kid reading the lines off a teleprompter for the first time.
Sam Milby with a provincial accent can be attributed to comedic irony which is likely a lucky punch for the casting department. Christine Reyes clearly out-shines Anne in every scene, but that's only because her performance isn't as cringy as Anne's was.
It's just not worth the time to watch it, so don't.
