With the nights getting longer, we find ourselves staying home and watching a lot more movies. Luckily for you, most of them are Asian, so we can help you hopefully find some gems and avoid some duds. Come find out which one the Filipino film You’re My Boss belongs to.
You’re My Boss, a Star Cinema Filipino romantic comedy about a ruthless airline company executive, Georgina (Toni Gonzaga), who does everything to close a business deal. In a desperate attempt to win her clients over, she introduces her assistant Pong (Coco Martin) as the president of the company, and thus begins the pretense that will lead them to discover what’s real and lovable about each other.
Kmuse: So… I have a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde feel when it comes to this plot. I love the parts where they are not actually working. But anything that happens in the office has me cringing. That might be because they’re hijinks were so unrealistic. Also, the person they were trying to impress was annoying me A LOT!
Clkytta: Yeah, I didn’t watch this one for the plot. I watched it because the main couple was cute!
Kmuse: The scenes shot in Pong’s hometown were breathtaking. They were possibly my favorite thing about this movie. I’m a sucker for gorgeous ocean and breathtaking mountain landscapes.
Clkytta: They really chose some amazing places to film. I was really happy that it wasn’t all office scenes.
Kmuse: As much as I wanted to really love the leads, I just couldn’t connect in on their romance. Possibly because I really didn’t like the office scenes. Once it was just them exploring their relationship I was a bit more invested. As for the side characters. I wanted to kick that annoying client to the curb. He did nothing to make me enjoy his part of the show.
Clkytta: It’s been a lot longer since I watched this, and all I remember is that the couple was really fun. It’s such a cute opposites attract romance that I was forgiving all the cringy parts.
Kmuse: Since my favorite things about this movie was the scenery and THIS song… You can kind of guess my score. I give this movie a 5/10. There are a lot better romantic comedies out there to watch.
Clkytta: Kmuse! It’s not that bad! I give it a 7/10. If you want a fun, fluffy, cheesy drama, this one is for you. Heavy on the cheese, but hey! Cheesy dramas have their place in our world too.
Til our next movie adventure,
