LABYU WITH AN ACCENT

Labyu With An Accent (MMFF 2022)

Directed by: Malu Sevilla, Rodel Nacianceno


A broken-hearted rich girl

hires a male entertainer

for an ultimate jowa experience.


Sinong mag-aakala na

kaya rin pala ni Jodi Sta. Maria

ang magpatawa?


Nakakatawa ang pagka-OA ng accent niya rito. Kahit na comedy ang pelikula, naipamalas pa rin niya ang galing niya sa pag-arte. Dapat niyong abangan ang isang eksena kung saan kumanta siya ng “Gusto Ko Nang Bumitaw” dahil magkahalong tawa at awa ang inyong mararamdaman para sa kanyang karakter.


Nakakatawa rin si Coco Martin. Todo-bigay siyang magbigay-aliw sa mga eksena. Kapag ginagawa niyang katatawanan ang kanyang sarili at tinatanggap niya ang kanyang kahinaan, mas nakakatuwa siyang panuorin.


Cute ang naging kanilang tambalan. May mga eksena na halakhak sa tawa dahil sa galing ng mga banatan. May saysay ang istorya, at hindi lang puro patawa. Pero tila dalawang magkaibang palabas ang napanuod mo.


Isang sitcom at isang teleserye.


The first half (the sitcom) was full of life and laughs. The second half (the teleserye) was full of dramatic episodes with endless happenings.


Andami at ambilis ng mga kaganapan. Hindi mo na alam paano ba ito nangyayari lahat sa kanila. Parang umabot na rin sila sa Book 2 ng teleserye.


There were many characters, and most of them were neglected along the way. There were some topics inserted, such as inequality, social status and education, but they were never really discussed.


If this movie focused on its main plot and utilized its humor further with Jodi and Coco, then it will become more enjoyable.


The movie is good as a comedy,

but not as a drama.


Hence, let’s still give this film a simple like


Hindi Lab.
