Have you read the book “Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo? Written by the famous internet action star Ramon Bautista? This famous book was turned into movie last July 31, 2013. I am not a fan of this best seller book but the poster of the movie with KimXi (Kim Chiu and Xian Lim) convinced me to watch it. The poster made me curious about the real content of the movie. I don’t know if it’s like a typical damsel in distress movie with a happy ending or an ugly protagonist turned into a chic.
So here it goes, when I was watching the movie, it made me laugh 100x, in love for 200x and it breaks my heart 300x. When it comes to love everyone can relate, because no one is exempted in this category. Thanks to Kim Chiu’s hilarious performance because she really did well in playing the role of Sandy Veloso. Sandy (Kim Chiu) just got dumped by her boyfriend while Alex (Xian Lim) returns to the Philippines after calling his wedding off. The two cross paths when Alex was assigned to save the family's record company which is on the brink of bankruptcy. One of the solutions is lay people off which include Sandy. Alex finds out that the only person who knows the company really well is Sandy, so he hires her back but they soon discover that the record company is not the only thing that needs to be saved.
This movie is not just about relationships but also how you value your self worth when you’re in love. It also tackles about family, the importance of the attention of the parents to their children that even though they have grown up, parents are still obliged to guide and protect their children from physical and emotional attack of the society.
Some said that there were shortcomings of the script because most of the viewers already read the book before they watch the movie. My advantage is I didn’t read the book so I didn’t expect too much. As what I learned from the movie, don’t expect too much from others so that you won’t get hurt in the end. It’s also applicable in reviewing a movie. Still, the movie succeeds because of the engaging performance of the lead stars and effective chemistry that made the romance work.
