Although we feared that this movie will be CORNY and uber shallow, we were relieved when we finally saw it. Yup there were some cheesy parts which we had to endure (but the rest of the audience quite enjoyed), we think the movie is worth the ticket price.
Nothing award-winning here though. Sam and Anne's acting were good. We are quite unsure about Sam's crying scenes though. We felt the emotion but it seemed awkward because of his rather funny pronunciation of Tagalog words. However, his good looks more than compensated for it. Believe us, Sam looked perfectly HOT and handsome in the movie. Girls in the cinema where we watched were so "kinilig" with his looks. Anne looked equally beautiful too.
The story is nice. You'll have to watch it to know what we mean.
Spoiler alert! We loved how the movie showed the plight of young Filipino adults. One who is well-educated and the other who had no college education. Anne's character is very common nowadays. She is a young woman who gets almost degrading jobs which require showing lots of skin and being extra-flirty to customers just to sell their products and even ending up sleeping with their customers for extra money.
I think it's how you see the movie that will affect how you judge it. We chose to look deeper into their characters in order to fully enjoy the movie and get something out of it. But if you don't think while you're watching, all you'll see is a usual romantic comedy.
