    The Hows of Us

    Rekindled romance trope only works if the past isn’t as deeply problematic as that. They really solved these issues thru montages and sentimentality instead of attacking the problem head-on, huh? Damn.

    Nood na lang ulit ako ng Hello, Love, Goodbye. Miss Kathryn, this ain’t it.

    ★★★½

    I enjoyed watching this mostly for how crazy it was and because of the actors Lisa and Dennis who are just so great in these characters. I loved their chemistry and dynamic. I also kind of liked how they dealt with the whole class difference conflict, and how it pushed both Isi and Ossi to unexpected directions. I just had so much fun and was laughing for a better part of the film. It’s amazing.

    P.S. Don’t take it too seriously, it’ll ruin the experience.
