Despite obvious differences, easy-go-lucky kitchen naive Ronnie (Zanjoe Marudo) and chef restaurateur Benjie (Empoy Marquez) have been best friends since high school. When Benjie decided to put up his own restaurant La Luna Sa Hungry, Ronnie has never left his side - especially now that Benjie has joined in the shady "Kusina King Challenge" to save the restaurant. The two best friends, however, have a falling out when Ronnie has wrongly given Benjie's startup money for the Challenge to a scammer. Things then go out of proportion with Ronnie accidentally placing Benjie in a coma. Benjie does not know that it is Ronnie's fault - and Ronnie does not want to confess to Benjie either. A peculiar phenomenon happens when Ronnie bumps into Benjie's wandering spirit. Discovering that he can only touch Ronnie, Benjie prods his best friend to cook on his behalf for the upcoming Challenge while he ghostly manipulates. Wishing to cover up his wrongdoing, guilty Ronnie obliges. As the two try to ...
Kusina Kings is a waste of talent for both lead, Zanjoe Marudo and Empoy Marquez considering both of them are talented. The film feels like an hour long painful sitcom filled with unfunny and cornys jokes. It also has any awful scenes that sometimes hard to watch. I'm disappointed about this film because the concept has a potential to be great. It ended up plain bad and trying hard spoofing some Filipino movies and TV shows or sometimes referencing them.
Overall, this film is a total failure for all the cast. A perfect example of Filipino trashy mainstream movie.
