My Ex and Whys (2017) PG (on its third week and still making money)
After watching this movie, we wouldn't have minded paying for it. The story was beautiful and the acting was seamless.
Everyone wanted to throw their shoes at Nina(Karen Reyes(that's how good she is)---wasn't this also the name of the McDonald's girl with Fred Montilla's brother, the very handsome Rudy Francisco? Oh, it's Karen Delos Reyes, not Reyes) because she was such a sulsulera, but almost everyone applauded Jeff Tam who was quite a natural and sensible too as Daryl, the gay best friend.
Gio's family(all named after cars or____ LOL) all did well. Master Pops was happy that even if all the brothers were sons of darkness......Gio was able to cross over into the light.
This is more than a story about exes, it's also about misconstrued actions, begging for forgiveness(truly sorry), forgiving the ones that hurt you and owning up your mistakes.
I think if dad would have watched this he would love this too.
He would laugh and cry with Ryan Bang(he was so good here like how I loved the way he played the young Ariel Ureta in KimiDora), I just know it.
At the end of the film, like what he said after watching ONE MORE TRY, he would say, "It's world class!"
Kudos to the cast and crew plus everyone else involved in this film.
