Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy, 2013
I’ve always been a Vice Ganda fan, but I never thought I would come to this. His new movie, “Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy”, barely made me laugh. There were only “some” prime moments, some jokes were outdated and were re-used, and the story was very shallow. Same with the movie Pagpag, maybe if they had more time they were able to make a better story. Praybeyt Benjamin and Sisterakas were more hilarious, and made me think what happened to the Star Cinema magic. What amazed me is how great Maricel Soriano was in the film. She was remarkable and definitely deserved the award she recently had for the film. I was expecting an explosive part for Ruffa Gutierrez, probably a revenge scene, but in the end, they made her role unnecessary. The story was so fast, it’s like you’re watching a sitcom that never happened. The effects of the quadruplets were really good, and I can say Vice Ganda did a great job portraying four different characters. Well, the movie may lack a good story, at least their actors did well and delivered a satisfying performance.
