WHAT I LIKE?
Unexpectedly Yours is one of those quality RomCom Films you expect from Star Cinema and the ever reliable hands of Direk Cathy Garcia-Molina. The movie is a complete package of romance, comedy and drama touching different aspects of our lives from Marriage, Overseas Employment and even dealing with the Age of the Millennials. What I like about this film is its light-hearted plot that is generally entertaining and inspiring as they touch family values with an effective touch of romance and charm of the characters. With the right mix of good cinematography and soundtrack, Unexpectedly Yours tickles your heart and will make you smile from beginning to end. Comedy is on-point too. Aside from that, the movie’s biggest strength are its characters specifically Sharon Cuneta and Robin Padilla. This was a comeback movie for them. I am not a fan of Sharon and Robin but I fell in love with them in the movie. Their undeniable chemistry and impressive acting performances are I think more than enough to cover for your admission ticket. Sharon’s comedic timing and dramatic scenes are to live for. I loved the way she makes jokes about her weight and at the same time effectively portrays as a typical protective mother. Robin, on the other hand, effectively portrayed an OFW who longs for the love of her life after securing the future of his loved ones. Joshua and Julia were also a great support for this classic love team. Both of them gave a fresher feel since they cater the younger market profile. Joshua’s acting performance is impressive as usual. A more quirky and relaxed Joshua compliments well with Robin. Both of them did a great job as the epic “Mag-tito” tandem. Julia is also great in the movie. Her soft rebellious side with a heart also complimented with Sharon’s character portraying a “strict” and “manipulative mom”. Overall, I enjoyed Unexpectedly Yours. The movie added up to one of my most favorite Star Cinema RomCom Films ever made.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
