This movie is UNDERRATED and UNDERESTIMATED. It deserves more!!!
I REALLY don't know why this movie is rated so low in this site!!! It's an absolutely wonderful movie, and unfortunately it's greatly underrated both in box office and in people's expectations prior to even watching the movie. This is one of those "don't judge a book by its cover" circumstances. Yeah, the promotional poster may look a bit cheesy with cupcakes floating and surrounding the two main actors, and the promotional video for the movie makes it seem like it has a really generic plot of "boy meets girl" with a few cliché elements like "famous guy meets hometown girl" and "follow your heart", but it REALLY isn't like that. Yeah, the basis may seem generic, but the overall plot of the story is definitely high up there as in, if ever they made a sequel, I'd be afraid that sequel wouldn't be good enough to match the original. It's THAT good. The chemistry between Erich and Mario in this movie is AMAZING. The touch of innocence romance (you'll seriously wish you could smack Erich and Mario's faces together so that they can have really good kiss), drama, and comedy blend into this movie seamlessly. The setting of Thailand and Philippines are shot breathtakingly, the music is beautiful, and the cross-cultural aspect is incorporated perfectly!! I really wish I could spoil the whole thing to you just so that you'll know that it's a phenomenal light romantic film, but I won't, because now, I want YOU to watch this movie for yourself. See it while it's still in theaters!! Seeing it on the big screen is an even more memorable experience~~ it's must-watch, and truly a must-watch-AGAIN.
