Hating Kapatid... movie review

Two of the country’s biggest superstars, together for the first time in a landmark team-up.

In this comedy, Judy Ann stars as Maria Rica and Sarah is Maria Cecilia, daughters of public school teachers turned OFW. Left in the care of their Lola Gerty (Gina Pareño), Rica and Cecilia grow up in Bocaue, Bulacan, where they help look after the family’s firecracker business. The two girls are inseparable. Rica takes her role as the big sister seriously, to the point of breaking up with her boyfriend, Bong (JC DeVera), and vowing to devote her life taking care of Cecil when the latter is hurt in a minor accident.

Ten years came and pass and their parents finally decided to return home. The family moves to Manila. Rica, though an Accounting Major graduate, chooses to sell jewelry instead of getting a professional job. Cecil, on the other hand, works as a sales clerk in a video store and a promodizer of magic sing. She meets Edsel (Luis Manzano), an insurance sales agent. Rica, sensing that the two are attracted to each other tries hard to keep them apart. Cecil, wanting to make Rica happy, tracks down Bong, but the result is the exact opposite. Rica feels betrayed, especially when she learns that her baby sister is already in a relationship. She gets upset and leaves. Now it’s Cecil who has to find a way to win back her sister. 
Thank you SM Cinema for inviting us to be on the premiere night of Hating Kapatid.  It was one unforgettable experience.  I never thought of being on the side of the red carpet could be so tense.  Yes, I mean tense. As in people making remarks and shouting whenever one of the main characters walks along the red carpet. 

The movie is very light-hearted with some dramatic scenes.  It has to be noted though that the movie is also filled with laughter and obvious scenes of product placement.  You will know what I mean when you see the movie.  Die hard fans should love this, it has all the emotions you would expect with a Wen Deramas directed film. Vice Ganda provided great laughs and the chemistry between Judy Ann and Sarah was indeed wonderful.

The movie is directed by Mr. Wen V. Deramas 
Now showing at all SM Cinemas nationwide.
