I already prepared my things in case my mom stands up and walks out the cinema as soon as she hears fail comedy lines again. But to our surprise, the first episode was actually the best. In the beginning, I found myself and my mom laughing at the simple and natural humor of the scenes and actors/actresses. We really enjoyed that episode. As my mom said it, "Yung episode na yun ang nagdala sa movie."
Sadly though, the story or scenes ended quickly and then the next episode showed. We did not get the first part of Episode 2 so we gave it a chance. We thought that we probably didn't like the ending just because we didn't know the beginning of the story. But after a few scenes of the episode, we felt the same boredom we felt so we decided to leave. We left at the part when they entered the white house.
I guess I expected too much from this movie; it being based from a Bob Ong book and also based from the humorous trailer aggressively promoted on national TV. And just like most expectations, it turned to be a big disappointment. Sorry to say, just an honest review, if it weren't for Episode 1, it would be a total waste of time and money.
I do believe that it's not Bob Ong's story that sucks but the way it was presented in motion. This movie actually encouraged me to get back to reading his books especially this Lumayo ka nga sa akin. I would frankly tell you I did not like the movie but I would not (at least not yet) say that the story sucks as well until I get a hold of the book.
Should you watch it? Well, if you're willing to risk your P170 and about an hour & a half of your time, gorabels (go)! But if you're expecting endless and extreme laughs, this might not be the movie for you. Go watch something else.
