There was nothing in the trailer of Everything About Her that was likable. If I based my decision on it alone, I would not have watched the movie at all. Good thing, reliable friends prodded us to see this and we were glad that we did.
The film was chill and light enough to provide a perfect feel-good break from watching all those Oscar 2016 contenders. Backed by solid performances from Vilma Santos, Angel Locsin and even Xian Lim, Everything About Her was a great opening act for Star Cinema for 2016. So even if it took a while, I am glad that it found its audience and hit the 100M mark - making it this year's first official box-office hit.
