Honeybun and I watched a couple of Filipino movies today and we enjoyed watching both of them, but for different reasons though.

Movie 1: Saan Nagtatago Ang Pag-Ibig?

Starring: Vilma Santos, Ricky Davao, Tonton Gutierrez, Gloria Diaz, Cherie Gil, Alicia Alonzo and VANGIE LABALAN!!!
Gist: Rich boy Ricky gets Vilma pregnant but doesn’t want to marry her because his lola wants him to finish school first and be an attorney so he can get his pamana, which would greatly benefit him and the rest of his family. Solution: let Vilma marry Ricky’s retarded half-brother, Tonton.
Favorite scenes: Vilma making love with Ricky, Cherie Gil making love with someone, Cheri Gil talking on the phone with her boyfriend, saying that she wants to shop at SM, and every scene where the incomparable Vangie Labalan is in
Why we love it: Vangie Labalan!!! And the fact that it was such a great movie with great execution, casting and performances.

Movie 2: Ngayong Nandito Ka

Starring: Jericho Rosales, Kristine Hermosa, Onemig Bondoc, Cindy Kurleto
Gist: Jericho and Kristine are set to go to Japan with the rest of their showband, but Jericho has to stay behind to take care of his ailing father. He eventually stays longer and is engaged to Cindy. He breaks up with Kristine over the phone. She goes home and gets a great job and a rich boyfriend, Onemig, who hires Jericho to supply him with furniture. Jericho and Kristine meet again and discover many surprises.
Favorite scenes: the ones where the members of the showband dance. It’s so bad that it’s good! it’s so laughable and annoying, I swear.
Why we love (to hate) it: Gross, aware acting and even grosser dancing. I swear I want to watch it again
