Reviews:

3.5         Jecoup Asombrado (Pinoy Exchange)

Maybe This Time is probably not going to be one of the Pinoy romcom classics that will be raved upon and quoted in years to come but nevertheless it’s a solid movie which could still make you believe in the power of love. ”  (Read full review)

3.0         Julia Allende (PEP)

Maybe This Time is a movie that ends from the time the opening credits show. Watching it is only a matter of waiting for the inevitable and hoping for a few surprises.” (Read full review)

3.0         Misstache

“The chemistry of the two leads’ first team up on the big screen is fine. With his smile, jologs wackiness, and chivalry, Coco Martin proves he’s also got the chops for natural comic relief while Sarah Geronimo’s infinitely likable charm worked well with her touching drama scenes.” (Read full review)

2.5         Oggs Cruz (Spot.ph)

Maybe This Time is comfort food, the type that you eat not for the nutrients that it provides your body but because it is the only thing available that won’t have you throwing up.” (Read full review)

2.0         Rito Asilo (Philippine Daily Inquirer)

“It hits one discordant note after another, because everything about its leaden narrative feels fake and fabricated—including its lead stars’ forced chemistry.” (Read full review)

1.5         Philbert Dy (Click the City)

Maybe This Time can only speak the language of romance phonetically. It doesn’t imbue the words with meaning, content with merely mouthing the sounds and creating the illusion of emotion.” (Read full review)

1.0         Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

Maybe This Time is like going to a buffet and coming home with steady bout of flatus. You pay much and are rewarded with nothing but air.” (Read full review)
