The siblings were split up when her husband Pete (Joey Marquez) left for the States, and his domineering mother brought a couple of kids along. The quadruplets grow up not knowing of the existence of the other pair. But the secret is revealed when Peter (Vice Ganda) needs a compatible liver to save him from Hepatitis. He and his sister Girlie (Vice Ganda), along with their dad, travel to Manila to find their siblings Mark and Paying (both played by Vice Ganda). But when they find them, it turns out that Mark has been harboring a lot of resentment, and as the only compatible donor, he sets out to make sure that his far more affluent siblings get a taste of what his life was like.

Reviews:

3.5         Philbert Dy (Click the City)

Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy is a really solid offering. Its last half gets a little tedious, and the ending wraps things up a little too neatly, but as a whole, the movie does have heart.” (Read full review)

3.5         Zig Marasigan (Rappler)

Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy feels effortless in its attempt at humor. While the film won’t be winning Deramas any new fans, it’s at least a passionate attempt to amuse and delight.” (Read full review)

3.5         Jasmine Cruz (Business World)

“In the end, you watch this film because you’re a fan of Vice Ganda. You watch it because it’s a light movie. You watch it because you can mentally skip through the bad drama and savor the laughs.” (Read full review)

3.0         CINEMA

“Sa kabila ng medyo gumaralgal na istorya, maayos ding lumabas ang pelikula; malaking bahagi ang naiambag ng galing ng pagganap at characterization ni Ganda.” (Read full review)

2.0         Nicol Latayan (Tit for Tat)

“Bakla’s scene in the near end is one for the books and it’s really funny, but everything else feels so dated and tired. And I won’t even begin with the black face character of Kiray Celis and how many endless jokes were done about it.” (Read capsule review)
