Status: It's Complicated (2013)
The movie has a lot of dialogue and I was afraid my dad would walk out, but he was laughing his heart out too. He even said, "Why do they keep on calling Eugene/Marianne matanda? She looks younger than ever!"
"It's her role, daddy...it's her role!"
Chris Martinez's take on this film made it look original. The cast was well chosen too. Maja had a different interpretation of Rina. Solenn had a different take on Sylvia. Jake was definitely a different Manny and Paulo was a different Gerry.
Of course, Ms. Eugene Domingo's version of Marianne was different from Ms. Rita Gomez's version. Ooh la la!
Everyone did well, including the one that played Rene Requiestas' role(Sylvia's assistant), Dimples. Clarence Delgado did good as Dennis. I was very fond of Bongchie Miraflor(who was a few years younger than me...fond only...remember, it was Mat Ranillo III who was my crush back then...LOL) so I wondered if the new actor would do justice, but I think Clarence did well too.
So would I let my friends watch this? Most of them would enjoy this, except for the super conservatives, so I guess I could say, Y-E-S! ;-)
