Reviews:

4.0         Ria Limjap (Spot.ph)

“There’s a sequence where Kimmy and Dora work as call center agents for the Go Dong Hae company. It’s hard to sustain the humor coming out of a long sequence like that (the twins take on various jobs in the family empire) but with the snappy writing and Eugene’s comedic timing, it doesn’t run out of punch lines or fall flat on its face.” (Read full review)

3.5         Jeffrey Valisno (Business World)

“The story is not groundbreaking, but it is definitely not mediocre. The comedy was delivered through witty dialogue and funny banter, not the slapstick comedy and toilet humor most local comedies resort to.” (Read full review)

3.5         Mark Angelo Ching (PEP)

“This is what one should expect: unforgettable laugh-out-loud moments and family-safe hilarious antics from comedy maven Eugene Domingo.” (Read full review)

2.5         Fred Hawson (Fred Said)

“Unlike the innovative novelty that made the first film remarkable, there was really nothing much that is new to see in this one.  Even the humor factor seemed oddly limited already.” (Read full review)

2.5         CINEMA

“Mahusay na mga artista ang gumanap pero gaano nga ba ang magagawa nila kung hungkag naman ang mga eksenang ipinagagawa sa kanila. Maayos naman sana ang buod ng istorya pero dahil medyo pilit na ang ikatlong yugto, maraming eksena na inilagay na lamang para pampahaba at pampatawa.” (Read full review)

2.5         Nicol Latayan (Tit for Tat)

“This one still provided the laughs, and Eugene Domingo is still a hoot (I think I can watch her doing nothing for hours), but at times you question if this is still necessary.” (Read full review)

2.0         Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“It is kind of baffling how so much clear talent went into the film only to produce a whole lot of tedium.” (Read full review)

1.5         Zig Marasigan (Rappler)

“Jokes are drawn out, and often feel forced and painfully tedious. The story itself is one sketch after the next with no real momentum.” (Read full review)
