3.5         Zig Marasigan (Rappler)

“It’s a film that is as rough as it is irreverent and as perverse as it is amusing. But while this may all be characteristic of some sort of narrative inconsistency, it strangely comes together through a Frankenstein-like work of comedy.” (Read full review)

3.0         Jecoup Asombrado (Pinoy Exchange)

2.5         Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“The most common complaint directed towards the mainstream is that they keep making the same film over and over. Whatever else might be said this film, it certainly wouldn’t merit that particular knock. But the messiness of the back half just can’t be entirely ignored.”  (Read full review)
