    .Share ko rin kung gaano ka hit ang YCML dito sa amin, imagine, the doctors sa isa sa mga mamahaling hospital dito sa cebu ay nanood pala ng YCML sa mamahalin ding sinema, according to them x 2 from normal rate daw ang bayad, pero kahit mahal, marami daw pumila, grabe daw talaga..kakatuwa kasi mga doctors and nurses, kasi pag may vacant, pinag-usapan nila ang movie at kinilig daw sila, at sabi ng sis ko na nagtatrabaho din doon, may doctor na kinakanta pa daw ang themesong sa movie sa mga pasyente nya..hahaha..good vitamins siguro yun,,,kahit sino, talagang ma iinlove sa movie..

    Gummy bears, yum yum, I can eat gummy bears all day.
    Directed by Cathy Garcia-MolinaCast: John Lloyd Cruz, Sarah Geronimo, Rayver Cruz, Mikee Cojuangco


    To show that thin line between love and stupidity is what good romantic comedies are for. But isn’t falling in love subjecting one’s self to stupidity? This dual existence, just to reiterate, of love and stupidity mocks the self-assuring belief that we human beings are the most intelligent creatures here on earth, that we can decide things fairly with our brain, mind over matter, sanity over madness, passion over narrowmindedness, and seeing over blindness, without losing our grasp on the fleetingness of this world, this world that has inflicted us the pain that only experience can give. While A Very Special Love describes love as a cosmic illusion that is still worthy to pursue, You Changed My Life gets pulled by gravity, stays on ground, and personifies love in its irresistible giddiness and intoxicating sweetness. Definitely this is Star Cinema magic at work.

    It takes off from the excess sugar of the first one, picking every bit of sweetness from Laida Magtalas and Miggy Montenegro’s romance, details that cross over the second to remind us of the kilig, the sun dance, the lines from Smokey Mountain’s “Kailan,” which was more cleverly used in the previous, the melting stares, the good-natured raillery, and the smiles of a summer night. The sequel, plot-wise, focuses more on Miggy’s renewed relationship with his family, gaining the trust of his father but still troubled by his brother’s strictness. After the publishing business, he is now assigned as the general manager of their industrial laundry - - common scenario except that it is based in Laguna. That distance, that seemingly unproblematic distance between the two lovers, provides the narrative with a lot of space to roam around, small things that realistically speaking are what makes up a relationship. It sounds like a hollow idea, a simple truth to answer with << there is love in distance! >> but in their world, their rigidly dimensional world which seems to share a reality similar to ours, everything is a matter of time for things to sink in, and for love to come back again.

    As it leans more on Miggy’s pressuring career decisions, now it is up to Laida to freshen things and alleviate the seriousness. Her youthfulness, though sometimes can easily be called dumb and cataractous, keeps us lighthearted; her carefreeness, which, again, puts her intelligent quotient way down, is acutely contagious. We can forgive her as long as she gets her man. Her character completes the main character of this sequel - - that while it is Miggy who provides the story its propelling events it is Laida who really touches us, her unrelenting wistfulness, her closed-mindedness, her kagagahan over Miggy who is handsome but stiff, wealthy but incomplete, romantic but paranoid. Aren’t we all attracted to the imperfect? Those damaged, awkward, and irresistibly attractive people? Oh why God created them.

    Carmi Raymundo has to speed up the story by conveniently showing a photo-montage in the beginning and the necessary A Very Special Love flashback near the end, which is just wise to pump us with strength to hit our seatmates after the kilig overdose. She also adds elements that range from humorous to ridiculous. Some like the be-be ko ringtone and the number of seconds to kiss turn out to be very effective because they are placed well in the narrative, not just mere quirks of their characters. Laida’s wig is by all means irritating and her clothes are inconsistently attention-grabbing. The blabby officemates are still there; one wonders why they are still employed. An additional character, Cristina (Mikee Cojuangco), Art’s ex-girlfiriend, is quite good. When Art tells Miggy “I don’t want you to be like me. I want you to be better than me,” we understand what better means, what better than him requires. Despite Cristina’s utter grace emphasized by her heavenly dimples, it is difficult not to notice her overdone makeup.

    Apparently this is not The Godfather. You need not have to see A Very Special Love to lead your way to You Changed My Life’s story. Strange how an unusual team-up, powered only by kilig, turns out to be the most effective pair in recent years; a complete story is barely necessary. Everything about John Lloyd Cruz is comely, his eyes, his gestures, his foolish dance moves, the priceless expression of jealousy on his face, dang, even his heavy eye bags become his asset. He knows his capabilities; he knows how to make good use of them. His maturity reflects on the character he plays; being the worst person to love multiplies the charm. Sarah Geronimo, on the other hand, is made to fit into the role of Laida Magtalas. She can make a green mango taste so sweet, sometimes even to the point of overdoing it. But there can never be anyone to play it better than her; her mix of fun, irritating mannerisms, and lightheadedness is simply delightful. Together, Cruz and Geronimo signify love at present - - or in present tense? - - changing, developing, faulting, building, their love that can never be done, just what true love is.


    There is some hint of infinite glorifying in this review, especially when the author decides to end it in choosing a scene that exemplifies his bias on characters that think, people who allow time to overcome them, that when Laida speaks to Miggy in the end, realizing things, and tells him that they have their own separate world, own separate lives, own separate things to do singlehandedly, that they are not one, a thought difficult for couples to accept, and as Miggy mocks their previous ending with another kiss, now on the lips but unseen to us, we don’t have to see it anyway, the cliché mystery of it makes it all cloying yet pleasurable, the self-consciousness drowns with luscious remembrance, the formula still works, and yes, oh how sweet it is to be loved by someone, to be in love with someone and nobody else.

    I've read reviews from numerous writers, since you don't serve an employer's interest, like they do, I believe in my heart of hearts, that yours is the best I've read.

    agree ako sa'yo 100% the best review so far.

    Actually very nice ang reviews ng CBCP on YCML. Very wholesome, no flesh and torrid kissing scenes showed. Pati dialogue ng casts ay very entertaining na ok lang hear mga kids. When i saw the movie, i knew na sa mga homily ng priests some of them will mention this movie especially yung moral lesson regarding give and take in a relationship.

    Congrats sa whole casts of YCML especially BEBE SARAH, JLC, direk Cathy and direk Panying. Also sa Viva Films and Star Cinema.

    o eto, 8th and 9th serving ko ng YCML.

    8th serving ko was March 11, wednesday. nanood kami sa MOA ng 7:25 pm screening. i was with a former officemate and my best buddy. May nakita akong maiksing line sa isang cinema. akala ko "Taken," kasi kao-open lang nun and yung ibang cinemas walang pila kahit maiksi lang. aba, when my friends arrived, yung pinasukan pala naming cinema na may maiksing pila ay sa YCML pala. don't be alarmed about the maiksing pila guys ha kasi ang tagal na ng YCML. normally wala na nga dapat pila and to think na patay na araw yun at di pa sweldo. sa loob ng sinehan di man puno ang premier section, aba madami pa rin. sabi nga ng officemate ko na di naman mahilig sa tagalog movies at di naman fan ni sarah (pero nanood siya ha at siya ang nangulit sa akin), "Aba ang dami pa ring nanood ha." may mga nanood din sa ibaba. may nasalubong pa akong lola at 2 pa niyang kasama na papasok sa cinema. at kahit hirap siya maglakad, go pa rin siya. kaka-touch naman. at eto, paglabas namin, may mga manonood pa ng 9 pm-something screening ha. bilib ako.

    yung 9th serving ko naman was on March 14, saturday with my best buddy, sa Glorietta 4. 8:05 pm screening ito. according sa monitor madami pang vacant seats pero pagpasok namin, aba ang dami na rin pala sa loob. ibig sabihin malaki talaga yung sinehan kasi halos yung seats not near the screen ay occupied na. nung nag call of nature ako, ayan, ang dami palang nanood. nasa likuran halos. kung 500 ang capacity ng cinema na yun, the crowd was roughly 300. not bad for a movie shown last february 25 pa. yung iba halatang nanood na kasi naririnig ko na alam na yung mangyayari sa next scene. gusto ko lang sagutin yung girl sa bandang left ko kasi sabi ba naman, bakit daw iisang sapatos lang parati ang gamit ni laida, buti pa raw siya madaming sapatos. gusto ko siya sabihan, "Darling, sine ito. ang role ni laida ay di maarte. di sila mayaman. please separate reel from real, ok? huwag kang mag-alala, pag nagkita kami ni sarah (hoping hehehe) sasabihan ko siyang mag-donate ng sapatos sa iyo. o pwede rin, padamihan kayo ng shoes." hahahaha.

    anyway, bottom line is, madami pa ring nanonood ng YCML. di man kasing dami noon, lumalaban pa rin siya. pero wow, let's count our blessings, kumbaga. YCML broke records guys and bonus na lang itong mga nasasaksihan nating "buntot ng bagyo" na iniwan ng movie. kung yung ibang movies, nag-aantay na kumita ang movie ng P100M, aba, tayo ay bongga, nag-aantay tayo ng P200M (and more!). relax na relax ang mga popsters ha. alang tensyon. and it's not every day that a movie breaches the P200-M mark. i think YCML is on target to do that. God-willing, kakayanin.

    sa success na ito ng YCML, ni JLC, direk cathy, cast and crew and most especially, kay SARAH... congratulations and thank you Lord! weeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
