Reviews:

3.5           Katrina Stuart Santiago (GMA News)

“The conclusions for this movie are easy, the enjoyment even more so. I chalk it up to two things: one, the limited amount of time for each episode made for storytelling that was quick, with no minute wasted on long stretches of nothing; two, creative directors are all you need, the ones who have a sense of how love stories are supposed to look, how comfortable love can be, and how sexual tension need not be about pretty boys and girls, and rarely happens in the most ideal of moments.” (Read full review)

3.0          Mario Bautista (Showbiz Portal)

“The best of three episodes is easily Gunaw because the viewers laugh from start to finish. Eugene Domingo is in her best element (she’s better here than in Kimmy Dora and Here Comes the Bride) and Richard manages to match her every step of the way.” (Read full review)

3.0          Ria Limjap (Spot.ph)

“I considered ducking out, but thank goodness for the last and best episode: Gunaw. Director Chris Martinez (and Marlon Rivera, who shares a story by credit), had the smarts (and the balls) to create something a little less obvious and a lot funnier.” (Read full review)

2.5          Regnard Raquedan (Screen Sucked)

“I found the off-beat story Gunaw by Chris Martinez as the best of the lot, where we see Richard Gutierrez in an unlikely pairing with comedienne Eugene Domingo in story of a love story in a 28 Days Later-type of world.” (Read full review)

2.0          Oggs Cruz (Little Lessons)

“Two of the three episodes are utter rubbish. Dominic Zapata’s Soulmate, about a girl who falls in love with the ghost of the taxi driver, is a sorry exercise in redundant bad comedy and drama. Andoy Ranay’s BBFF feels like a chore, with its tale of a lawyer who is set-up with a heartbroken girl by his best friend dragging on and on and on without reward or consolation. Thankfully, Chris Martinez’s Gunaw, about a man who meets the last remaining woman in the world, is a lot of fun.” (Read full review)

2.0          Nel Costales (Sine Patrol)

Gunaw is the saving grace of the150-minute film My Valentine Girls. The two earlier segments are indeed time-wasters.” (Read full review)

1.5          Philbert Dy (Click the City)

Gunaw might be worth seeing, but it’s really not enough to make up for all the awfulness present in My Valentine Girls. That one segment might not be terrible, but it’s not worth sitting through the ninety minutes of concentrated garbage present in the first two segments.” (Read full review)

1.5          Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

“In My Valentine Girls, Gutierrez has succeeded in portraying four characters by way of a single emotionally incipient person with the sensitivity of a drying paint and the emotive capacity of eggplants!” (Read full review)
