Despite the hunky image that Zanjoe Marudo has to offer, having him in this latest Skylight Films offering and is teamed-up with Pokwang–the film ‘My Illegal Wife’ simply put emphasis that its theme is family-comedy and not sexy comedy.
Both Zanjoe and Pokwang are dubbed as Skylight’s comic gems for their respective films in 2013 did well at the box-office. Zanjoe starred in Wenn V. Deramas’s movie titled ‘Bromance’ where he convincingly breathed the identical twin roles of different genders, while Pokwang did the film playing as the mother who went all-out in winning back her daughter’s love and trust via Don Cuaresma’s ‘Call Center Girl’.
The sexiness of Ellen Adarna is also the one attraction in the film, but her character is one that is vital in revealing the identity of Pokwang’s character. Ellen is the fiancée of Zanjoe. To know exactly what occurred, watch the film which is opening on July 11 in cinemas nationwide.
Funny scenes in the film are spoofs from Star Cinema’s blockbuster films like–‘Bride for Rent‘, ‘It Takes a Man and a Woman‘, ‘Starting Over Again‘, and ‘She’s the One‘–to mention a few. It also rides on the popularity of ‘The Legal Wife’ TV series on ABS-CBN Channel 2.
Directing this heartwarming, but wacky story is Tony Y. Reyes, the man behind the success of ‘Enteng ng Ina Mo’.
For the audience to have a total laugh all-through-and-through experience at the movie house, comedienne Joy Viado and comedian Empoy Marquez were added in the cast. Also in the film are veteran actress ‘the’ Anita Linda with Edgar Allan Guzman, Beauty Gonzalez, Mikylla Ramirez, and Steven De Guzman.
