| Although a solid first half, this movie suffers from most Filipino comedies.
The movie to its credit it has its comedic moments, but it also has its downfalls and flaws. The action was well-executed. Once again the funniest part about a Vice Ganda film is his fellow gay co- stars, and Coco and Vice's obvious chemistry, and the hit-and-miss jokes are (for the most part) great, when the joke hits--it's funny and it gets you a bit of a laugh or giggle here and there, but on the other hand, when the jokes are a miss..oh boy it is a MISS. Let me also point out Nadine and James (aka JADINE), these two were one of the most disappointing things about this film. Their relationship is way too forced, the dialogue is insultingly bad and the acting is beyond lazy. They had little to no help in moving the story along, it's sad because these two have Proved (movie and TV) that they can do better, they can be funny, but for now, they're just wasted cast.

Although a solid first half, this movie suffers from most Filipino comedies, ESPECIALLY Vice Ganda's movies, and that's having too much focus on the first half and having little-to-no effort in the second. It also suffers from, again, most Filipino comedies; it tries to throw too many jokes all at once that it ultimately ends up awkward and a mess. JADINE was out of place. The story had no proper focus. Coco and Vice's comedic chemistry had so much potential but wasn't exploited enough. Writing gets lazy into the second part, the dialogue is painfully awkward. The pacing was either going too fast or too slow and the plot didn't make sense for the most part.

If you're with a group of friends looking to kill time (2 hours to be exact. Really? TWO hours for a COMEDY?) I'd say go watch it. But I'll say that Beauty and the Bestie is an awkwardly written, unevenly paced, waste of potential.

"Come for the first half, stay because these are expensive tickets."
