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.

Inevitably, he rises from the ranks and in no time becomes the incredible, unbeatable, and unreachable soldier. To prepare him better, Benjamin is assigned under a new general, WILSON CHUA (Richard Yap). However, Private Benjamin committed a BIG mistake. Benjamin is about to be dismissed from service when Gen. Chua saves him by giving him a mission – to be the private security of a brat kid B2 (Bimby Aquino Yap). As he watches over B2, Benjamin finds himself clashing with MISTY, General Chua’s daughter, and the meddlesome housemaid GUNDINA. However, as he gets to know B2 more, he learns that the B2 is a kid deprived of love from family – something that he has ignored in his quest to be on top again. Will he succeed in his new mission?

First, she learns that Carlos is a bad guy for her after all and that her best friend Babs (Xian Lim) is in love with her.
