Junjee is in love with Sheena even if the latter is always angry and demanding. It’s hard to believe the presence of love when the character being put on pedestal has no lovable and redeeming qualities. Junjee’s consistent narration throughout the film somehow helped to make things more sensible.


Their interest in music, nursing, writing, plants, and arnis are just part of the props and scenes; they are not being used to better understand each other’s lifestyle. Their conversations are mostly repetitive, just for fun, and on a surface level. There are other people in the story that seem important but weren’t given enough scenes. The crucial role of a parent and the earnest advice of a friend are missing.


Filipino humor is present in the movie. There are skits that would make you laugh because of the way they were executed.


Kaunti lang ang eksena ni Joey Paras, pero sobra sobra ang naibigay niyang saya. Tumatak nang lubusan ang kanyang ginawa.


Tapat ang naging pagganap ni Pepe Herrera mula umpisa hanggang dulo. May ibubuga siya pagdating sa comedy. May angking husay din pagdating sa drama. Nagawa niyang magpatawa at magpaiyak sa pelikulang ito.


Sa kanyang pagbabalik pelikula, pinakitang muli ni Toni Gonzaga ngayon ang dahilan kung bakit siya ay minahal nuon. Mahirap mahalin ang kanyang karakter dito dahil parati ka niyang itinutulak papalayo. Ngunit sa tuwing sinisigaw niya ang tunay na saluobin ng kanyang damdamin, duon lumalabas ang kanyang galing. Tagos sa puso ang kanyang mga monologue sa pelikula.


Terno ang kulay ng kanilang mga kasuotan. Matino ang cinematography, ngunit minsan ay nakakasilaw na sa liwanag ang hitsura ng pelikula. Nakatulong ang tunog para alalayan ang ilang mga eksena. Nabigyan ng bagong buhay ang kantang “I Believe” dahil sa magandang pag-awit ni Ethan David. Sana lang ay hindi na iniba ang lyrics mula sa kinanta nuon ni Jimmy Bondoc.


Kinulang sa kilig ang palabas na’to dahil sa katangian at kilos ng mga karakter. Ngunit dahil sa mga biruan nila, nagkaroon ng saya. Dahil sa pagganap ng mga bida, nagkaroon ito ng puso.

𝘔𝘺 𝘚𝘢𝘴𝘴𝘺 𝘎𝘪𝘳𝘭 may not be that romantic and sassy, but it has enough comedy, drama and heart to consider it a decent film.
