Synopsis: Inside a derelict building in Cubao, an underground competition takes place between pick-up artists. They trade their best lines on stage, hoping to win over the crowd with wit and swagger. And in this arena, Boy Pick-Up (Ogie Alcasid) is the undefeated champion, his powerful non-sequiturs taking down challenger after challenger. But though he triumphs on stage, outside he struggles to make rent. He gets a job at the bakery owned by Angel (Solenn Heusaff), a recently jilted balikbayan. Boy woos Angel, and wins her affections. But his love for her makes him vulnerable, and that allows the villainous Bagwis (Dennis Trillo) an opportunity to take his revenge.  (Click the City)

Reviews:

3.0       Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

Boy Pick-Up The Movie runs like a protracted gag show – but it really is one. Its humor is patchy, but the performances more than make up for the unevenness of the material.” (Read full review)

2.5       Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“The sketch from which it is derived is little more than a single joke, and applying plot to it feels like a futile venture. But there are unexpected joys within this strange little movie, moments of brilliant stupidity that simply cannot be denied.”  (Read full review)

2.5        Mihk Vergara (Lagarista)

“Worth a look for the novelty of it all, but truth be told you can spend the same amount of time watching best-of clips on Youtube.” (Read full review)

2.0         Mark Angelo Ching (Pisara)

“One of the problems of Boy Pick-Up: The Movie is that its storytelling has a tendency to be predictable. Some characters are introduced in the first 30 minutes, to be soon forgotten once another plot point comes along.” (Read full review)

1.0          Carl Joseph Papa (Whatever Carl)

“It feels like torture having have to sit through the whole thing.” (Read full review)
