Here are 10 Things You’ll Love About “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes”. Watch out for spoilers!
10. The film isn’t your typical Star Cinema comedy fare.
If you have seen the movie itself, you’ll immediately have that feeling that this is not going to be your usual slapstick comedy from Star Cinema. With director Jun Robles Lana at the helm, the film will surely give you that indie vibe even during the film’s opening credits.
9. The film touches the LGBT community and its members.
The film is about two wives who got cheated on by their gay husbands. Therefore, it is inevitable that the film will feature such topics such as the identification of the LGBT community.
In one particular scene featuring the two couples discussing what has happened between them, Gary ( Joross Gamboa) Lianne’s ex-husband, identifies himself as a woman while Felix (JC de Vera) tags himself as a Heteroflexible, a man who is mostly straight, not gay or bisexual, but in between bi and straight. This is just one of the most controversial topics discussed in the film.
8. The film tackles relevant issues such as cyber-bullying.
During the film’s third half, one of the decisions of the lead characters who posted something online became viral and has caused a stir among netizens.
This caused one of the parties involved to be harassed in social media and leading to a violent confrontation. The film is an eye-opener for everyone to remember the golden rule of online communication: think before you post.
7. The film is overflowing with quotable quotes.
Aside from the hilarious banter of the two leads (“Ako ang asawa ng inaasawa ng asawa mo” is one great example), the film is also full of unforgettable quotations that will really stick with you like “Pain will come with time, but time will heal the pain” and “If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.”
6. The film is actually way deeper than what you think it is.
The film looks like another slapstick comedy at first glance. But it’s actually way deeper than one could have expected. Jun Robles manages to surprise us with a story that gets meatier and juicier as the film progresses. You can’t help but be engrossed in this hilarious and complicated story.
5. The film tackles themes of infidelity and the complexities of relationships between couples.
Marriage is such a complicated thing. But having an affair makes it even more complicated. All that Felix and Gary wanted was to be to their-selves since that’s what we are being thought ever since we are young. But in the process, they ended up hurting their wives by hiding the truth from them.
Most people would say that lying is always wrong, except when there’s a good reason for it, but this is not true. A lie is a still a lie, plain and simple.
4. The film features a new brand of comedy.
The film is Rated R-13 by the MTRCB due to its themes and language. The film is unapologetic in its use of foul language featuring its stars and does not sacrifice it’s script just to get a watered-down PG rating.
The film is purely of adult humor that is definitely fresh and new, especially since it’s a Star Cinema film.
3. The film will definitely make you laugh and cry at the same time.
Same as his previous blockbuster hit “Die Beautiful”, Jun Robles Lana promises to make everyone laugh and cry in this movie. With its perfect blend of humor and drama, this film will leave a tear or two in your eyes and a big smile on your lips. It’s the ultimate feel-good movie of the year!
2. The film is produced by Star Cinema, Quantum Films and IdeaFirst Company.
These three companies are the geniuses behind the blockbuster films “Here Comes the Bride”, “English Only Please” and “Die Beautiful”, leaving their quality mark in the movie.
