Review: My Bebe Love


Dale's Review:

If there is a Razzie Award for the MMFF, GMA Films' My Bebe Love would probably sweep this. The film may just be one of the worst films in MMFF history. Given the quality of some of the movies that have been allowed in the festival in recent years, this is something. Now, I may be too hasty in my judgment, given that I have not completed the MMFF roster this year but it's hard to imagine anything worse. 

I have long trained myself to ignore the shameless commercial plugging in a Vic Sotto movie but even if you have gotten used to it already, it doesn't make it less crude. The film doesn't even feel like it's there to provide entertainment anymore. With previous Vic Sotto movies, you could at least feel that the cast just wanted to have fun. Sure, they turn up crappy results but the camaraderie felt real and you could feel the intent to entertain. My Bebe Love, on the other hand, felt like it was just there to earn as much money as it possibly can.

The ALDUB parts of the movie felt too much like milking the popularity of the duo. Sadly, whatever magic they had on television never really translated to the big screen. Alden Richards remained charming but there was no real spark between him and newcomer Maine Mendoza. For Maine, I think this is a gauge of how far her sudden popularity would take her career in showbusiness. Let's just say that this movie doesn't really propel her forward.

As for the lead actors - AiAi delas Alas has never been this annoying. She took up a notch her energy (read yelling) from her previous films and seemed intent on rupturing the audience's eardrums. Vic Sotto did better as he managed to act with minimal traces of his usual antics but that alone wasn't enough to elevate the film.

There was a moment in a bar where AiAi said that life isn't really a romantic comedy. That moment felt like it could have lead to something worthwhile. But in the end, the film was content on just dishing out crap - perhaps even with certainty that they would end up as a top earner anyway.

Rating: 1/5

Jae's Review:

The story would have been nice (and this is stretching it) since it revolved around the duplicity of the older couple with the younger ones' romance but they cut it short in the end without really explaining it so it felt incomplete and senseless.

I have never felt more irritated with Aiai than in this movie. Her incessant screaming (of almost all her lines) is grating and painful to listen to.

Alden and Maine's (the aldub couple) chemistry is so much more effective in their kalyeserye than in here. You can see the effect of the couple in their tv show by how loud the screams of the tv viewers are. I was observing the moviegoers during the supposed 'kilig scenes' in this movie and the general reaction was -- silence.

Maine obviously needs more practice with her acting skills as she only has three faces: kilig (and this really felt genuine), sarcasm/indifference (complete with the eye rolling and lip pouting) and bitchy (where she is able to deliver her English lines with ease).

Alden is Alden. He plays to his charms and is easily the best actor in this ensemble (which isnt so hard to do considering how bad everyone was in their roles).

Rating: 1.5/5

  5. watching movies its not all about the stories, its all about how kung paano ka ma relieve from the stress...ung story pangalawa na lang yan kung bat tau nanonood ng pelikula, unang una kaya tau nanonood kc gusto natin ung artista sa pelikula. Ngaun kung hindi mo gusto ang flow ng story ng pelikula kasalanan mo na un kung bat un pinanood mo.

      I only watch movies that are story-driven, not because I'm a fan of one of the cast or to relieve stress. If it's to relieve stress, then I would like to hang out with my friends, sharing stories while drinking some booze, or just stay at home and relax. What we need for the movie industry is quality not quantity, remember that.

      While this kind of movie is not bad provided that it is shown during a regular movie date, this shouldn't be included in the rosters for MMFF. For f-k sake, it's a film festival! And a film festival calls for quality.

      I'm disgusted with the way MMFF is in the current situation. And they call this a film festival when in fact it is just a cash-grab.

    feel good movie lang naman kasi talaga sya eh. as in no brainer, pampawala lang talaga ng stress. i'm 24 and it didn't fail me with its #KiligPaMore subtitle. tahimik ako for most parts, not that i wasn't affected but i opted to respect other movie-goers. ang hirap magpigil ng kilig! the struggle is real. so if you felt that their chemistry fell short in translating from TV to big screen, medyo unfair namang observation yata yun kasi for me it actually did.

    so branding it as the worst, well opinion mo yan. but on the context of shameless endorsements? i dont think so. i've seen the worst in My Little Bossings and Praybeyt Benjamin Part 2.

    Also, Maine's acting is actually a surprise. Kung yun man siguro lang yung mga emosyon na nakita mo sa mukha nya, dahil yun lang naman kasi siguro hiningi ng character.

    Again, my review is built on the premise that this movie is just a stress reliever. Sana nakita mo rin yung naobserbahan ko kung panong dahil sa movie na ito nagkasama (at nagenjoy) ang buong pamilya, mga bata hanggang mga lolo at lola. Nakakagood vibes lang talaga.

    I must agree though, Aiai was a bit annoying with all the screaming.

      I agree with this. Honestly, it's just a feel good movie. Sinali ang AlDub kasi alam naman natin na talagang malakas sila ngayon. But the chemistry is still there. And I must say na talagang bentang benta to sa kids. Kasi while watching, ang daming batang nagrereact talaga. Parang Kalye Serye levels.

      Also, tama na mas malala yung sa Private Benjamin at My Little Bossings pagdating sa mga commercials. Madalas wala na sa storyline. Although I hope ipagbawal na yung ganito. Hahahaha! Medyo nakakainis din kasi.

      And as for Maine, sa totoo lang ang galing nya dito. Yung asawa ko sabi nakakainis daw si Maine sa movie na to. Sabi ko, I guess that's a testament at how effective she is. Kasi ang role nya is a spoiled brat rich man's daughter. Meron bang spoiled brat na nakakatuwa? The girl delivered, in fairness.

      Lastly, di ko din gusto si AiAi. With her loud outfit and screams. Sayang sana iba nalang yung ginawang role sa kanya. Ang cute kasi ng kakaibang bossing dito. Sana ginawa na ding kakaiba si AiAi. striktong matandang dalaga na conservative kaya? Parang mas cute diba?

      I don't think naman people felt robbed of their money. Ako hindi ko nafeel yun. Alam ko naman kasi what to expect. Alam kong bossing film at kilig movie lang so I really expect just a feel good movie. Tatawa lang sa mga kakulitan ni bossing tapos yun na. If I wanted something na may superb storyline, dun ako sa Honor Thy Father. Which by the way eh papanooring ko rin talaga. Anyway, every year I watch as much MMFF movie as possible. Suporta na din sa pelikulang pilipino.

      Honestly, hindi ko gets bakit kelangan laging wonderful storyline o pang awards ang hanap ng lahat. I agree na film festival ito pero ang film is not just about oscar-levels stories. Madaming bata ang nanonood kaya kailangan mo ng mga palabas na hindi malalim ang story. Yung easy to follow lang. Tapos para sa mga movie critic meron namang Honor Thy Father at #WalangForever. Kung gusto ng horror meron din. Yung gusto ng ibang brand ng comedy, meron din. So ayun.

    3. Anonymous12/28/2015

      ^I dont agree. Yes, movies shown in mmff may not be as 'dark' as Honor Thy Father and instead show a 'lighter' story that caters to other groups such as kids. BUT the QUALITY of film must NOT be sacrificed (especially since film festival po ito, kelangan 'upgraded' ang films kasi if not, bat pa sya tinawag na film fest?), and this of course is very much possible. What this movie (and most of vic sotto and vice ganda mmff movies) shows is a film that as if collected comedy cliches here and there and haphazardly made into one movie. They've must at least made use of aldub's influence to make a better movie.

    Nakakalungkot na yung ibang tao pinagtatanggol pa ang pagiging basura ng pelikulang ito. Pwede namang maging high quality ang mga entertaining rom-com movies kung gugustuhin. Sadly, this movie just used Aldub's popularity, wala nang ibang puhunan. Ang mas nakakalungkot ay ito pa ang top grosser.

    Totally biased review. Have you ever heard the Director said that they're making the "greatest" movie ever? No, they're making a movie for the family. So, it is a family entertainment. This is why the comedy is light and not a comedy bar style. I watched the movie with low expectations and I enjoyed it. If you want to make a review about "quality" film, you should have made a review about Honor Thy Father.

  27. Maine is so gorgeous in this movie and I like her acting skilss, considering wala pa siya workshop. Funny din naman sina AiAi at bossing and I can hear fellow moviegoers laughing. Siguro nga lang sana 'yung role ni Maine yung may pa wacky wacky at tumatawa din parang kalyeserye. Pagkakita kasi parang attracted na agad sa isa't-isa.....para mas may thrill siguro yung parang magkaaway muna then later nagka in lovean parang sina Vic and Aiai. Mukhang may spark naman, gawa lang ng mas maganda at mas applicable na storyline para sa ALDUB in big screen. They have all the potentials. Commercials pa lang nila nakaka kilig na...movie pa. Kaya nila 'yan basta i handle lang sila mabuti. Besides, second lead role lang naman kasi sila sa film at mukhang hinabol lang sila para maisali sa MMFF. Basta ako 'di pa rin ako nawawalan ng faith sa ALDUB to have good movies and teleseries in the future. Sana lang 'wag abusuhin at gamitin lang ang kasikatan ng ALDUB ng mga mag handle sa kanila. Give credit where the credit is due. Palutangin ang kinang ng ALDUB because they have a lot of it...off cam and on cam. Support ko sila all the way basta maging mas mapili lang sila sa mga offers para only the best at quality lagi mga projects nila. Wala na sana yung mga commercials sa mismong movie...tutal nakalagay naman yun after ng movie at sa tv commercials,etc...
