Merits For The Achievement
Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy is a movie with Vice Ganda playing four roles who each have distinct sexualities. That concept might sound like a gimmick for the comedian to show the fans his new heights of entertainment and laughs. Since that is the whole case of the movie, it does the job neatly. Though the typical style of Wenn Deramas is still there, but the film provides an emotional core to make up after all of those endless antics. While people would still find it corny, the decent achievement still makes it entertaining.
It never really bothers about the genders of the titular characters, that seems to only describe their personalities. It's more focused on their relationship to each other. That is the deepest moments of the film. Of course, the comedy still owns the entire film. The director definitely never abandons his trademark: they deliver punchlines that are taken literally, some random fantasy stuff happening, and sped up moments. It might be a little exasperating, but otherwise they work as long as the talents hold it. Vice Ganda's versatility here is pretty effective. The film is already fun enough when the actor is just goofing around. The rest is as enthusiastic as the star.
Personally seeing this film is a coincidence, but I still don't have much to say other than its impressive achievements. Well, it's not at the highest degree of the genre, but the people behind made it reasonably entertaining and funny. I guess that's already enough to make people happy about it, in fact the plot it has is not a bad one either. In the end, Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy exists to please the fans of Vice Ganda, otherwise you would have to embrace the silliness that it bounds to help you tag along.
