"Crazy Beautiful You" is a 2015 Filipino romantic comedy with a touch of drama film starring Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo. This marks the return of the lovable loveteam of Kathniel on the big screen. This pinoy movie was another box office hit reaching 300 million pesos as of March 9.

That Thing Called Tadhana (2015)

"That Thing Called Tadhana" is a 2015 Filipino romantic comedy film starring Angelica Panganiban and JM de Guzman. This official entry to the 2015 Cinema One Originals is for me a similar version of the American movie "Before Sunrise". With both main characters starting a conversion about life and eventually about love.

Synopsis: “That Thing Called Tadhana,” a romance-comedy in the tradition of "Before Sunrise" is what Antoinette Jadaone has created. The films asks the questions “Where do broken hearts go?” and tells the story of a woman, struggling to meet airline baggage requirements, who meets a man who comes to her aid. Both in despair out of love, they form a charming friendship that will take them to Sagada in their attempts to mend each other’s hearts.

Gangster Lolo (2014)

"Gangster Lolo" is a 2014 Filipino comedy film starring Leo Martinez, Bembol Roco, Pen Medina, Soxie Topacio and Rez Cortez. This pinoy movie brings back a lost art in Philippine movies. Action movies doesn't "click" nowadays and we only see them on MMFF or Christmas season. It will never come close to becoming a box office hit but for me, this is a welcoming touch.

Synopsis: In Gangster Lolo, moviegoers will get to meet Asiong Salonpas and his band of "senior citizen" criminals. They go about their lucrative criminal activities by staging successful holdup robberies in the metropolis. Their nefarious business is well-funded by Bogart and Jim.

That’s until she chances upon Gio (Gerald Anderson) during a party. His adventurous and passionate spirit enchants her. Yet there is more to him than what he shows her.

English Only, Please (2014)

"English Only, Please" is a 2014 MMFF romantic comedy film starring Jennylyn Mercado and Derek Ramsay. Both of them won the best actor and actress awards in the recent Metro Manila Film Festival.

Synopsis: Misery loves company—and two miserable people may eventually find love in each other. Case in point: the protagonists of English Only, Please. Julian Parker (played by Derek Ramsay) is a New Yorker business analyst who hires (through the Internet) a tutor who can teach him how to speak Tagalog fluently. He finds Tere Madlansacay (Jennylyn Mercado), a Bulakenya who teaches English to Korean students, among others. Julian pays Tere to translate, from English to Filipino, his hate-filled letter to his ex-girlfriend Megan (Isabel Oli). He is still hung up on his college sweetheart who, after graduation, returned home and met another man. He flies to Manila and learns Tagalog from Tere, so he can personally deliver and recite with feelings his letter to Megan. Tere herself is lovesick. She continues to see her ex-boyfriend Rico (Kean Cipriano) and lavishes him with expensive gifts in the hope of getting him back. It takes a while for Julian and Tere to break the ice. For starters, Julian is aloof and he can’t stand her tardiness. Tere, on the other hand, is perky and friendly, but she appears ditzy and unrefined. Realizing that they needed each other’s help—he, in stalking his ex at a cineplex; and she, in pouring out hurt feelings over her ex—Julian and Tere become friends and they start spending more time together.
