3.0         Pinoy Exchange

“Upon watching the trailer of Trophy Wife on television, one may easily surmise that it is one of those run-of-the-mill Filipino movies. Viewers however are in for a surprise in every corner as twist after twist are dropped. It could be an exciting viewing experience, if one could get past sketchy production design.” (Read full review)

2.0         Zig Marasigan (Rappler)

Trophy Wife does provide some interesting twists to an old story, but the results are so undeniably convoluted, and so ridiculously unbelievable, that it’s difficult to take the film seriously.” (Read full review)

1.5         Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“The film simply lacks the conviction to follow its story through, to commit to the zaniness of its plot. What results is utter nonsense, and nothing worth watching.” (Read full review)

1.0         Jonell Estillore (Film Police)

“In the attempt to swerve away from the commonest of the mistress genre and its appeal to the general public, Trophy Wife dares to be different by giving the formula yet another stir, only to eventually wound up into a ridiculous resolution.” (Read full review)
