Delightful Farce Movie for Every Filipino Family
As expected, the Vice Ganda-starrer "Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy" under Star Cinema would break box-office records. For that, I would like to congratulate all the producers and staff of the movie for a job well done. Personally, I believe that the movie deserves all these successes because it's a marvelous comedy-flick movie that will make everyone inside the cinema laugh, cry, and entertained.
Like most of Wenn Deramas' movie, the synthesis of family drama and farce was gratifyingly made, making the movie worth to watch despite its high-priced tickets. Once you watch this movie, it makes you feel satisfied and indulged by the end of the story.
Vice Ganda's versatility as an actor was featured all throughout the movie. The portrayal of Vice on different persons with altered personalities and with dissimilar sexual orientations alone revealed his talent in acting while making people hoot. All the other characters in the movie, especially the character of Maricel Soriano, were also decently depicted.
The way of humor used by Vice Ganda was very effective, making everyone watching the movie laugh once in a while. The family drama also was effectually able to highlight the waggish and witty parts of the movie. On the other hand, the brilliantly written script undeniably brought several laughs and chuckles from the audience.
The plot was delightful especially for the Filipino taste, highlighting the importance of family bonds in the Filipino culture. It was also effective to show the characteristics of a typical Filipino family, and typical Filipino parents and siblings.
On the technical aspects of the movie, hands down for the visual effects that they used in video dubbing the four characters of Vice Ganda. I'm pretty certain that creating such kind of effect is not easy to do and is not easy to perform, especially that most of the scenes display four faces of Vice Ganda, unlike other movies with twin characters that usually uses doubles in conversations. Some 3D animations were somehow disappointing. It could have been improved, should they made it appear more realistic. The camera rolling, on the other hand, was creative enough for a farce movie like this. The musical scoring also was fit for most of the scenes.
All-in-all, "Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy" is a wonderful comedy movie for every Filipino family.
