    This is a mess. It's a well-intentioned mess, but a mess nonetheless. Tirso Cruz is a great actor. I was most interested in his story. He should have been the lead here. The two old guys serve as a backdrop to the children's stories. This is not about two old gay guys (well the other one seemed to have just used the other) dealing with ageing. This is about adult children being like children.

    wellllllllll. It is Mary Poppins, but I don't know how something like this exists in these times. It still moves somehow like the original, and even if I do not recall anymore how the first movie was, I was stuck with the idea of having Julie Andrews as a nanny, and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious for a week. I don't know if Emily Blunt will have the same effect. Probably not.

    I tried. Never seen a Vice Ganda movie before. We spend money on this? And we wonder why the Philippines is poor.

    I would have wanted a movie that matched the greatness of Queen and Freddie Mercury, but I guess that’s asking for too much when you know that the remaining members are producers. This is like an afternoon movie. Entertaining enough but not unforgettable. The best part is the Live Aid performance. It was like that kind of dessert you want after a so so meal.

    Piece of crap. Director thought that stuffing a movie with frenetic visuals is a good idea. No. When you’re going to reinvent a classic, make sure you understand what made it a classic.

    I watched this because someone recommended it. Premise sounded interesting enough, but it’s not really different from other pretentious drivel we get from the indie scene. Guy has a problem he does not do anything about and expects the world to adjust to him. And we are supposed to feel sorry for him because it did not work out for him? The second half feels like a panic attack to resolve subplots and tie loose ends. It was clunky.

    I enjoyed this. Wicked funny story with great acting from the two ladies. If only Henry Golding were a bit more of an actor, this would have been great. But I'll take it as it is. Fun and evil.

    Fun and Enjoyable
