Directed by: Crisanto Aquino

A taxi driver found a baby

in the passenger seat,

making him an instant daddy.

True to its title, everything in this movie is instant. Money appears quickly. Forgiveness happens easily. Thereโ€™s a sudden loveteam that you didnโ€™t know existed. A group of people just shows up. Relationships are established in a snap. The journey to many things is missing. Only the highlights are presented.

Despite everything being instant, each scene is well-acted. The actors are reliable, allowing you connect with them when needed. The scoring also helped in unleashing the emotions.

Patatawanin at paiiyakin ka nina Jerald Napoles at Althea Ruedas. Bagay at cute tingnan sina MC Muah at Nikko Natividad. Kahit kaunti lang ang eksena nina Marnie Lapus at Ryza Cenon, nakapagbigay pa rin sila ng kasiyahan. Kailangang magpakita ni Danita Paner ng ibaโ€™t ibang klase ng emosyon dito sa pelikula at naibigay niya yun nang maayos.

The story is easy to follow. The execution is simple yet sincere. Some scenes will give laughters, but the last few scenes will definitely bring tears to your eyes.

Indeed, this movie can make you smile, laugh and cry in an instant.
