3 Days 2 Nights in Poblacion

Directed by: RC Delos Reyes

Out of the all the places, why do people spend their night in Poblacion? Could have been in BGC or Cubao. Yet they chose Makati.

While the party people would obviously know the difference, this movie failed to share the importance of choosing the right location. Food and drinks are not shown nor given importance. The crowd or customers don’t look and dress the part. Only a few bars were shown and they were not highlighted. Regardless or not the movie’s location is in Poblacion, it wouldn’t matter in the story.

The “3 days and 2 nights” is loosely presented. The flow of events is unnatural. The continuity is off. The opportunity to show day life vs night life is also missed.

Some characters randomly disappear and appear. Most of the character decisions and actions are illogical. A lot of key discussions between bestfriends are missing. Issues get resolved on their own. The movie is on a party drunk mode where it’s losing track of time and sense of reality. Sometimes, it can get entertaining with its random events and oblivious characters—similar to when you’re drunk in Poblacion or in any other similar places.

Jasmine Curtis-Smith and Barbie Imperial had moments when their friendship was believable. Whenever there’s a catfight, you can hear the insecurities and disappointment speaking. Whenever they cry, you can feel the sadness take control or the ego being put aside. They are effective when their emotions are extreme. But on other situations, they’re lacking connection with each other, and they seem unfit for their character descriptions.

Kakai Bautista was a funny distraction to the movie’s main plot. Lady Morgana had a brief yet sweet exposure. Mercedes Cabral’s appearance was out of the blue. JM de Guzman was underutilized. Most if not all supporting characters have no contribution to the story.

Having the title “3 𝘋𝘢𝘺𝘴 2 𝘕𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵𝘴 𝘪𝘯 𝘗𝘰𝘣𝘭𝘢𝘤𝘪𝘰𝘯”, the movie is missing the Poblacion vibe and the journey of a long day and night. With the lack of growth and maturity, the idea of friendship presented in this movie tends to be superficial.

More days and nights are needed to fix the story.
