You Know You’re Watching A Filipino Rom-Com If…

  1. The Title– It is usually a title of a song, more specifically, a love song from the 80’s or 70’s. Cases in point:
    • Won’t Last A Day Without You (2011)
    • Babe, I Love You (2010)
    • When I Met You (2009)
    • You To Me Are Everything (2010)
    • many many others
  2. The Language– generally speaking, the language is Tagalog…however, a more accurate name for it would be “Taglish”. I’ve honestly sat through some movies thinking “Someone who knows English but not Filipino could understand this movie even without subs!”
  3. The Leads– most of Filipino movie stars share something in common with Severus Snape (I’m not an HP fan btw. Just trynna be clever:) ) : They are Half-Blood princes or princesses. Apparently, it’s quite an honor to be part-Filipino in the Philippines.
  4. The Story– Guy and Girl do NOT like each other at first. By some sort of luck, they are  forced to interact with each other, realize they love each other. And end up together. Simple.
  5. The Ending– Oh and the guy always, always gets the girl 🙂

Agree? Anyway, I do not have anything against Filipino moviemakers. In fact, I sometimes peruse these movies mainly for their predictability. They’re awesome pick-me-ups for a day when your middle finger seems to be answering every question. However, a bit of originality could go a long way. 🙂
