Are you the type of Philippine inhabitant who has difficulty looking for a friend whom you can drag to a cinema to watch a Filipino movie?
Fortunately, I have Nengkoy. This is because every time I crave to watch a Filipino flick I could easily drag my mother to the nearest movie house. Aside from her senior citizen discount, what is good thing about Nengkoy is that she doesn’t want to watch any Hollywood movie!
Thus, if I am channeling the “persona of every domestic-helper-on-a-day-off”, she could be a great movie buddy and companion.
In actual fact, I along with a couple of the members of my zany family was with Nengkoy at SM Mall of Asia. We watched the cheesy movie of Sarah Geronimo and Coco Martin entitled Maybe This Time.
I would not want to be critical and diagnostic on how bad the movie was. What is good about this types of movies is that you need not bring a lot of brain cells to analyze, digest and comprehend it. Besides, I had too much thinking and analyzing already. So in general, I enjoyed it. I liked it because it gave me a couple of laughs.
Coco Martin was surprisingly comical, diverse and atypical! But the big revelation was Sarah Geronimo. The sweet girl can act. Too bad she no longer sport those ill-fitting wigs she wore in her movies with John Lloyd Cruz. I miss those atrocious wigs! The movie could have been more hilarious if she did!
