I AM NOT BIG BIRD

I Am Not Big Bird (2024)

Directed by: Victor Villanueva


Isang lalaking may small bird ang napagkamalang porn star na ang pangalan ay “Big Bird”.


The movie lacks further penetration and intercourse on their chosen topic. Tackling sex and other related things on a deeper level is their biggest missed opportunity. The story happened in the 90s. They could’ve shown how conservative or liberated people back then, but the 90s setting wasn’t given any significance. The characters are diverse in terms of physical appearance and sexual orientation. They could’ve created more discussions on how it affects their respective lives, but their diversity wasn’t represented well.


Hindi bigay-todo ang mga kawalang-hiyaan. Bitin ang mga aksyon. May mga shots na close-up pero mas maganda kung mas malayo para nakikita ang buong pagkatao ni Enrique Gil na nilalaro ng ibang tao.


Walang foreplay. Hindi na-establish kung anong klaseng friendship meron ang mga karakter. Hindi ramdam ang bigat ng kanilang samahan at ng kanilang pinagdaraanan. Mabilisan lang ang mga usapan. Hindi sila nakikilala nang lubusan. Bigla silang nagpapakita ng mga motibo at gagawa ng mga mabibigat na desisyon.


Marami pang butas ang pelikula, pero madalas ay nakakalusot ito dahil pagtatawanan mo na lang. Bubuka bunganga mo sa mga patawa. Talsik tamode ka. Talsik laway dahil tawa mode on palagi.


Kusang lumalabas sa bibig ni Red Ollero ang mga patok na banat. Nakakatuwa ang karakter at ang mga hirit ni Nikko Natividad. Maiksi lang pero masarap pagtawanan ang mga ipinakita ni Pepe Herrera. Bagay kay Enrique Gil na magkaroon ng small bird at big bird. Hindi siya naiilang sa mga eksena at pinanindigan niya ito.


The four leads have natural chemistry. All the Filipino and Thai actors did well, although some are underutilized. Wipaweee Charoenpura was funny and effective with her all-out performance.


Maganda ang kulay ng pelikula at akma sa hitsura ng Thailand. Nakakayanig at pamatay ang transition effects na ginamit. Pang-international levels at lumalaban sa Bollywood.


Parating nasa climax ang pelikula. Derecho agad sa bakbakan at bastusan. Ihi lang ang pahinga.


It is a big move for an established production company to release an R-16 sexy comedy film nationwide. It is a bold decision for famous celebrities to play the roles and say some taboo words. This movie has opened doors for others to create more gutsy and refreshing concepts for the Filipino audience to see. The story may lack layers in it, but no one can deny that the movie still got big balls.


Malaki ang bayag ng pelikulang ito.

At hindi sila takot na ipakita ito.

Dun pa lang. Panalo na sila.

Nakakamiss yung ganitong movie, chill lang at hindi trying hard ang pagpapatawa. Sana nga lang hinabaan pa ng onti yung storya kasi nakakabitin but 5 ⭐️s pa rin. Congrats Enrique and the whole cast!
