Synopsis: Cat and Wacky (Bea Alonzo and Dingdong Dantes) are best friends. Despite their obvious chemistry and one drunken kiss, the two have never really gotten together. Enter David (Enrique Gil), who encounters Cat while she’s changing a tire in the middle of a typhoon. He shoots a video of her and posts it on the Internet, declaring his love for his mystery “girl in the rain” and asking netizens to help her find his drenched crush. The video goes viral, and Wacky, who works at a morning show, decides to capitalize on the popularity of the story to raise his profile on the show. Inexplicably, he doesn’t immediately recognize Cat in the video, but when he does, he pushes her to meet David on air. But when Cat and David start hitting it off, Wacky becomes jealous, and realizes just how much he wants to be more than friends. (Click the City)

Reviews:

3.5         Rito Asilo (Philippine Daily Inquirer)

“While its I’m-secretly-in-love-with-my-best-friend premise may have been done many times in the past (remember the Sharon-Aga rom-com, Kung Ako Na Lang Sana), the Bea Alonzo-Dingdong Dantes starrer breezily hits its narrative stride with clockwork precision—and with finely tuned characterizations, to boot.” (Read full review)

3.0         Zig Marasigan (Kristn)

She’s the One brings out a surprisingly satisfying tandem between Dingdong Dantes and Bea Alonzo. Despite its predictable premise, the film showcases an entertaining glimpse into the problems of falling in love with your friends.” (Read full review)

3.0         Ria Limjap (Spot.ph)

“What could have been a really sweet love story about two friends was unfortunately smothered with a ton of unnecessary and gimmicky tricks, turning it into a great big fluffy cheese ball—the ensaymada of rom coms, if I may say, smothered in marshmallow crème frosting.” (Read full review)

2.5         Tito Valiente (Business Mirror)

“This is the problem of the film: it creates conflicts that are meant to address the enjoyment of the audience, instead of generating conflict among the characters, from which the fun for the audience could happen.” (Read full review)

2.0         Philbert Dy (Click the City)

She’s the One, despite employing elements that position it as a movie of the Internet age, is as tired as narratives get. ” (Read full review)

2.0         Oggs Cruz (Rappler)

“The film does not have any ambitions of reinventing the wheel. In fact, it is stubbornly precise in following its formula. This stubbornness, relieved only by a few attempts at placing the tired love story into a present day dominated by social media, can only lead to a film with very meager charms, reliant mostly on whatever charisma its leads can muster out of playing boilerplate characters.” (Read full review)

1.5         Skilty Labastilla (Young Critics Circle)

“If this were made in the 1990s, it could have passed as a nice-enough movie. But in the wake of Star Cinema’s own iconic romcoms in the 2000s, many of which star Bea Alonzo herself, this just seems tired. And there’s nothing less nakakakilig than a paint-by-numbers romcom.”
