The Breakup Playlist international screeningIt is not everyday that the likes of Philippine Box Office King & Queen Piolo Pascual and Sarah Geronimo, also both very accomplished singing stars, team up to star in one movie. But put Dan Villegas at the helm - the cinematographer of huge rom-com hits like, "Bride for Rent", "She's The One", "Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo?" and winner of Best Director at the 2014 Metro Manila Film Festival for "English Only, Please", and tap his real-life girlfriend, white-hot Antoinette Jadaone for the screenplay - the writer-director of box-office winners "That Thing Called Tadhana" and "You're My Boss" and winner of Best Original Story and Best Screenplay at the 2014 Metro Manila Film festival for "English Only, Please", and you really have a megamovie at hand loaded with expectations for excellence.
The good news is their movie, The Breakup Playlist, meets high expectations and delivers on its promise of fresh takes on a romantic comedy, on-point acting, and genuine chemistry between the lead stars. The result? It's now the number one movie in the Philippines, currently beating even Hollywood films that opened on the same day.
Not only audiences, but critics also are raving over the movie:
"The Breakup Playlist is one fascinating experiment, hiding in the garb of a traditionally crafted romance.... It may not be perfect but it has its heart and soul in all the right places." - Oggs Cruz, Rappler.com "As local romantic films go, you won’t find anything more heart-warming and heartbreaking this season. Villegas creates a music-enhanced, catharsis-inducing romantic nail-biter that urgently captures the highs and lows of loving, and the compromises lovers make to stay together." - Rito P. Asilo, Inquirer.net
