    For a Filipino Film I'll give it a score of 9/10 It is one of the best RomComs in the Philippines ever!

    But if you stack it against Hollywood movies. a score of 7/10 would suffice.

    Acting Lead Actors: 10/10, they portrayed it masterfully. Supporting Cast: 6/10, could have casted a better "Yohan", they gave him a lot of screentime and his portrayal is lacking. The cousin and friends of Primo needs more workshops. George's friends were the bright spots.

    Story/Dialogue The plot is simple and direct to the point. It somewhat dragged when they went to Amsterdam. Dialogue was good 7/10

    Direction/Cinematography CGM is one of the best when it comes to RomComs here in the Philippines. 9/10

    As of Sept 7 it has 404M php gross, and its only been up for 10 days.

    PS: To the other reviewees, please be fair, don't bring your Crab mentality here.
  • The best ever movie of KathNiel. Mixed emotion, i cried, and the sametime kilig factor
  • I must say the Filipino movies are really improving. Our films can give us so more genres in three weeks. This The Hows Of Us is the best romance movie. 10/10.
  • I don't usually go watch local films, but KathNiel just have that thing that makes me not want to miss it every single time (I always watch on it's first day too.) lol

    So here's my non-biased review. I will try to be as objective as possible. For someone who appreciate movies a whole lot, it is such a hard thing to please me and my siblings when it comes to movies. I was a bit hesitant before watching the movie, rom-com-drama movies are not really my type.

    This movie, went beyond my expectations. The cinematography wasn't as great compared to their Crazy Beautiful You movie, but nonetheless, it really went beyond expectations. I never expected it to be as creative and dynamic because of the simple setting and story line, but it was unbelievably quite on par with CBY. Kudos to the team for that!

    Story wise, it was that kind of movie which is really simple and not as complicated as others but it really brought out the feels. I specifically loved the beginning part the most! It's not common for Filipino movies to start that way but it did! Not gonna spoil the scenes though. Gonna leave it all to you to find out how beautifully catching it was. Another thing to note, was the transition to each and every scene, the voice overs and the story flow. It's meticulously put together that you'll be hooked the whole time you're watching the movie. The dynamics was there too, will sound cliche but it was a roller coaster of feelings. When you think you're through all the heavy scenes, and can feel the whole cinema audience sharing that light feeling, they'll hit you with the feels again.

    To the couple, Kathryn and Daniel, they were really the one who brought the movie to life. Unlike, Barcelona: A Love Untold, we saw how great of a supporting actor Joshua is and for me, he was one of the actors who brought the movie to life. In here, it was all them. Not discrediting other actors, they all did a good job. Darren is a revelation, the kid is a multi-talented person. We can't really say anything about Miss Jean Garcia cause she really is a legend. Other cast's acting were quite bland but it was still a good one. Joross and another actor's cameo was also on point. For those who never had a relationship like me, Juan Miguel Severo and Ria Atayde was the most relatable one. They really showed what friends do, it was real, really genuine. Back to KathNiel, I really feel like this is their best movie yet. Kathryn was on her zone, she really owned this one. She literally shone her, she really showed her vulnerability and it's super far from when she was starting and her teen movies. We really saw Kathryn, not Kathryn with Daniel but Kathryn. Kathryn herself. Daniel is a natural, we all know that. I can't even explain how great of an actor he is, whenever he accepts a character, you won't see a trace of the Daniel Padilla in real life but he really gets into the character and owns it. He was the best Primo just as Kathryn was the best George. They really owned this one.

    Direk Cathy showed us again why she is a blockbuster director. She is a legend. Maybe not indie wise, cause that's not her forte. But we can always trust Direk Cathy to bring out all the emotions, may it be tears of both joy and pain, all the laughs and all the frustrations.

    Rated it 8 because there will always be room for improvement for all the actors and the movie itself, but overall it is a really great one. A must-watch!
  • 10 is not enough to rate this movie it should be ughh 101. This is the best movie of 2018 literally! Will give u a lot of realizations. This movie didn't GRADED A for no reason! So watch the talk of the town movie and don't forget to bring tissue. KathNiel and THOU team ay maghahakot ng awards!

    This is great movie, may matutunan ka talaga, and also this is the best of Kathryn Bernardo. You should watch it. Sulit ang bayad nyo. PROMiSe.
  • A story everyone can relate to. Kathryn was at her best in this movie and she deserves all the praises she is receiving from those who watched the movie. Daniel a natural charmer and his comedic timing was impeccable. Kudos to director CGM for bringing out the best in them!
  • Watched it exactly on it's showing date in cinemas (August 29, 2018) and I can say that the audience really missed KathNiel on big screen/cinemas! Sold-out screenings, long lines, etc.

    Review for the movie: This is going to be the last tandem movie of KathNiel together with Filipino's Blockbuster Director, Cathy Garcia-Molina. And they really did impress us viewers with their last movie together! The movie is a little bit cliche as you can say but atleast, it has something new to offer for the viewers. Direk Cathy indeed put up her best for the movie turned out to be beautifully scripted, it is by far expectation acting coming from all of the cast especially Kathryn Bernardo (this is her most amazing character/acting as she portrays "George"). KathNiel didn't failed us on each of their movie. Perhaps, they both keep on leveling up in their craft of acting or as a love team or maybe a partners in real life (hehe).

  • Watched it 3 times and still can't get enough of it. Kathryn and Daniel are very natural and Kit Thompson is such a revelation. This is the best movie 2018 for me.
  • cbenedicto1 September 2018
    Great story and acting from the cast, especially from the female lead. She made me emphatize with her.
  • 10/10

    Everything in the movie is at its best.

    Do not believe the poor rating and review given by other reviewers, they are just part of other fandoms who wants to bring the movie down.

    See it for yourself, for you to know that indeed, this is the Best Movie of 2018.
  • Ok ladies and gentlemen, I might get hate comments on this but this is my review on this movie.

    First, the only reason I had the urge to create an account on IMDB is because of the overrated reviews this movie has gotten. On top of that, this film became the BOX OFFICE FILM of the Philippines of all time! (So, arousing my curiosity, I took the time to watch).

    The material of this film was alright. Nothing extra special to be honest. The usual romcom pinoy film. In my opinion (no hate to Kathniel), it could've been better if someone better portrayed their characters.

    Seriously, who would live in the same house and put a division using a tape? Like, cmon, seriously?

    There were okay moments, but seriously Filipinos who went gaga on this movie need to re-evaluate yourselves. I'm not even hard to please.

    I would rate this film a 4/10 or 5. I gave it 1 STAR to lower down its overrated reviews from other people like giving it 10?? and their best movie of all time? Jeez.
  • This movie is the 'one more chance' of this generation. very relatable. i agree that there's nothing new in the storyline simply because couples these days still struggle with the same issues like all other couples from before.
  • kzhuertas31 August 2018
    The best movie of all time. Simple plotwise but emotion wise. Your time was worth it to watch thos movei.
  • #TheHowsOfUs The 9th Movie-team up of KathNiel and their second movie with the blockbuster director, Cathy Garcia-Molina (after She's Dating The Gangster) and may I just say that they keep on leveling up with their acting skills as a love team or as individual actor/s.

    *Beautifully scripted *Cinematography, Wise! *Simple plot and story but will definitely hit you hard and after it will give you a lot of realizations about relationship/s. *At syempre, TATAK CATHY GARCIA-MOLINA yan eh!

    #THOU is their best movie of all! (though lahat naman ng movie nila is maganda). All of the cast has brought such a great performance but Kathryn Bernardo? She really nailed it! She brings a Award-Winning worthy acting as she portrays "George." Also, what I like about the movie is that it is very relatable in all aspects (relationship, family, self)

    ! If in year 2000, we have Popoy and Basha. In year 2018, we have Primo and George. You should not miss such great movie like The Hows Of Us! THE BEST TAGALOG MOVIE OF 2018 so far.
  • As a fan of Kdramas. I will surely recommend this movie. A must watch. You will feel a roller coaster emotion.
  • evaberoy30 August 2018
    Superb....the of the year...touching and may aral...
  • theresa-968522 September 2018
    For me the movie is the best movie of 2018,the story,the acting,the direction,the cinematography,is the best,it was the best movie of the year.
  • The story and concept is simple which makes this film more interesting and remarkable in a way. How? Then watch it!

    Kidding aside, the actors were great, ang galing ni Kathryn and Daniel! My God, best actress ang acting ni Kathryn dito and yung ibang cast nagbeblend in sa kanila. I love Miko! (Beki friend of Kath in the film). The scenes and lines were very relatable. Believe it or not, yung katabi kong guy na may kasamang gf umiyak nung pa-end na yung movie.

    The 'hugot' of this film is not just the typical na hugot pagibig. It's a hugot about life, love, your family and friends.

    If given a chance at may magaya, for sure panuodin ko ulit! Sobrang worth it sa ticket prize na 295 (ang mahal bes). I hope a lot of people will be able to watch this film. Pwede sa barkada, sa magjowa, sa buong pamilya (makakarelate si inay at itay). Go na bes, watch na. You won't regret it! Promise!

    This movie is great. It gives you the feels of loving someone. I have a boyfriend and we're already on our 3rd year. Seeing this movie will help you realize things that will help you improve your relationship. If your love is true, it will make you a better person.
  • bertedeamrosedb30 August 2018
    I'm gonna keep it short and simple. After watching the movie, it will leave you with questions and answers you didn't know is with you. The shadows by the sidelines waiting for you to open that urn and welcome yourself by setting you free. Finally. Thank you The Hows of Us.
  • plvncsp30 August 2018
    This movie will break and fix you. A must watch movie
  • ej_luv30 August 2018
    This movie really hits me home. Such superb acting and the film over all was very real, it's very authentic it feels like I was watching a movie based on a true to life events. It feels like Primo and George really existed. It made me cry, laugh, feel being heartbrokened, fell in love again and became whole. Please do watch in the cinemas near you. You won't regret it. If your status is in a relationship, moving on or never had been in one. You can get lessons and tips about LOVE. Worth evey penny!
