"She loved me at my worst, you had me at my best, and you chose to break my heart . . . . "
Definitey good chemistry between John Loyd and Bea Alonzo, and this move shows it. the story is pretty straightforward and simple, two people who have their lives ahead of them, feeling trapped and trying to find themselves along the way, realizing, they have to grow up and grow apart before they can love each other truly.
Cinematography is excellent, and locations used are really good(for those who've watched it, the resto in the movie is Bellini's, a quaint little Italian resto in Cubao, just behind the Markina Shoe Expo, a nice date place .
Drama is interwoven excellenty between humor (you just don't drink shampoo), with the barkada of Popoy (John Loyd) and Basha (Bea Alonzo) supporting and criticizing them along the way.
All in all, a movie about friendship, love, growing up together, growing up apart, discovering yourself, and our plans in life. This will be a definite tearjerker for those who've just been recently in a break-up, particularly a break-up where both of you still have feelings for each other but somehow just can't seem to make it work . . .

hey it's not a breakup. it's about growing up, and falling back in love. kaya nga One More Chance eh hehehehehehe
happily in love? try I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry laugh trip! or how about Il Mare? The original Korean version of The Lakehouse.
i'd also recommend the play Sinta shown in Sibol at the Ateneo HS. Good play for a date, or for those happily in love. It's minimilist approach (no props on stage) pero very well written. It has the same theme, young love tested by reality, the ache of growin up, and finding each other once more. One line I'll always remember from that play is
Sinta: Saan ka nanggaling? Ano nangyari sa yo? Narding: Sa akin? Nangyari sa akin ang mundo.

Not a fan of John Lloyd-Bea Alonzo love team but I had to see this movie as my better-half asked me to accompany her...and my way also in securing a whole day visa for the recently concluded Kandila Welcome ride for da Man (sir Enzo).
Seeing the movie somehow brought me back (kind of) to those days when I was so much in love with my wife . And there's just this one line in this movie that struck me the most:
"She had me at my worst...you had me at my best"
A friend by the name of Noel (NVP) also watched this movie and quoted him as saying, "Naiyak ako pards..."
Don't worry pards, ako din eh! ;D ;D ;D
But seriously, it was a nice movie. Didn't like the ending though, happy ending, you know, typical pinoy love story.
So, to you John L and Bea A, 4 chillis!
