"Beauty and the Bestie is a complete package. Needs a sequel"
9 January 2016 | by ryanswingsSee all my reviews

I think this is the best film of Vice-Wenn tandem yet. The actions, the jokes are really funny and exciting. You can't predict what is going to happen in every scenes. JaDine tandem also did a splendid role in the movie. They have a potential in comedy, specially Nadine, which I enjoyed much. Coco Martin's role was stunning. His action-themed persona in "Ang Probinsyano" also appears in this movie. He is also good in comedy, together with his best friend Vice. I think they should team up again in the next project. Highly recommended, 'cause Vice and Coco has a chemistry to burst into laughter in theaters every time they have a conversation with each other. MC and Lassy did a job well done also the two kids, Marco Masa and Alonzo Muhlach. The storyline is good, but i'm not satisfied. It's ordinary, with a little bit of spice. When the movie finished, there was a question left on my head, saying that this film should deserve an award for Best Comedy Movie ever. If Wenn Deramas is planning to have a sequel on this movie, please make it well prepared, because "The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin" was not planned, the story line is a mess. They just made that movie for the high gross, which is true. Beauty and the Bestie deserved a well prepared and a solid storyline in the sequel.
