Standard Rom Com With A Little Twist
Fresh faced Phillipine beauty Anne Curtis plays Elizabeth, a successful young executive. While at school, and looking somewhat plain (you can't fully hide her beauty), she has a major crush on the school heart throb, John (Luis Manzano). One day after she freezes up in class (due to John coming into class with a note) and is outside crying. John cheers her up. Years pass and she thinks of him still. She opens the paper to find he died and goes to the wake and falls apart, but she realizes its John's father, not John who passed. However, by her hysterical reaction everyone thinks she had an affair with John Sr., causing a reaction and vows of revenge from his wife, played by Eugene Domingo, who is over the top funny in this (she is always fun to watch in film). Various situations ensue, some crazy, some cute. Its pretty much a chick flick, but a slightly above average one, due to Ms. Curtis and especially Ms. Domingo. While not laugh out loud funny, it moves along pretty well. If your favorite films are romantic comedies with a measure of screwball comedy/slapstick. you'll like this.
