Reviews:

4.0         Mario Bautista (Showbiz Portal)

“Director Jade Castro once again came up with a very entertaining romantic comedy that really works. There are many kilig scenes as well as laugh out loud scenes.” (Read full review)

3.5         One-Minute Movie Review

“Marian is in her rom-com element and she remains fun to watch. Her goofy charm and good comic delivery shine throughout the film. Her dramatic moment is also good.” (Read full review)

3.0         Abby Mendoza (PEP)

“While the signature humor is there along with the strong characterization, Castro’s latest film is devoid of the wit and originality in his stronger works. Even so, My Lady Boss works because of the power team-up of Marian and Richard, backed by the supporting cast who add color to the story.” (Read full review)

2.0         Rito Asilo (Philippine Daily Inquirer)

My Lady Boss generates little heat, not only from its mismatched lead actors, but also because of its overwrought humor and annoying, look-we’re-kwela ensemble.” (Read full review)

2.0         Zig Marasigan (Kristn)

My Lady Boss is a safe and unambitious romantic comedy that dredges up the most cliched of mainstream tropes. Despite some rare laughs, it is a tired and ultimately forgettable film.” (Read full review)

1.0        Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“There’s a kernel of a bright idea hidden in this mess, but it’s far too obvious that the movie was just thrown together. And that’s clearly unacceptable.” (Read full review)
