Movie No. 36 (2017): ALWAYS BE MY MAYBE
Always Be My Maybe (2016)
Director: Dan Villegas
Cast: Gerald Anderson, Arci Munoz
In Filipino, no English subtitles
Saw this on a Sunday afternoon on TV (ABS-CBN). Definitely a decent entertainment.
It's romance-comedy, Pinoy style. Formulaic as expected. The ending, of course, is predictable. But, the movie is something that's not easy to dismiss as just one of those flicks that are made to make fans shudder in delight. The good thing about the movie or the script is that it spends time be elaborate in characterization and carefully composed scenes to justify the expected ending.
