In the local movie scene, the month of December is marked by the Annual Metro Manila Film Festival. This festival which runs from December 25th to the first week of January, showcases locally produced films. The films are of different genre but almost always, a comedy film will make it to the list. For the Metro Manila Film Festival 2015, it is My Bebe Love:#KiligPaMore.
My Bebe Love: Kilig Pa More (2015)
What happens when the country’s comedy giants - the undisputed Philippine box-office king of comedy Vic Sotto and box-office queen Ai-Ai delas Alas, join forces with the newest record-breaking, phenomenal Aldub loveteam composed of Alden Richards and Maine “Yayadub” Mendoza, in one groundbreaking movie during the holiday season?
Vic Sotto plays the role of Vito who finds himself at odds and in a bitter professional rivalry with Cora, played by Ai-Ai. The two are both in the business of mounting special events and productions and have both made a successful name in the same profession. The conflict happens when their respective wards – Anna (played by Maine) daughter of Vito, gets romantically entangled with Cora’s beloved nephew Dondi (played by Alden). As expected, the “parents” actively reject the budding romantic involvement between the star-crossed lovers and willingly struck an unexpected truce to prevent this romance from happening.
“My Bebe Love: Kilig Pa More!” also features Joey de Leon, the “Eat Bulaga” lolas Paolo Ballesteros, Jose Manalo, and Wally Bayola, and Ryzza Mae Dizon, in special appearances. The movie is written by Jose Javier Reyes and Bibeth Orteza and directed by Jose Javier Reyes.
More than the awaited resolution of the conflict in the movie to help bring closure and new beginnings to the young lovers Dondi and Anna, hangs the question of whether the immense popularity of Alden and Maine will translate
to the movie scene. The presence of Vic and Ai-Ai takes care of the need to have bankable stars in the movie. Ditto with the appearances of the three lolas from Kalye Serye, which I believe is one of the main reasons for the success of the series.
This early, festival observers are already predicting a surefire box-office reign for “My Bebe Love: Kilig Pa More!” which is jointly-offered by OctoArts Films, M-Zet Television Productions, Inc., APT Entertainment, GMA Films and Media Production. We will all soon find out if this prediction has basis. Catch the excitement, the love, the fun and romance when “My Bebe Love: Kilig Pa More!” starts showing on Christmas Day at the MMFF.
