The Pre-Valentine presentation offering of Regal Entertainment Incorporated’s ‘Foolish Love’ opens tomorrow, January 25 in cinemas nationwide. The romantic comedy flick is headlined by Angeline Quinto opposite the hunky dramatic actor Jake Cuenca; along with the fast-rising tandem of ToMiho—Tommy Esguerra and Miho Nishida of the Pinoy Big Brother fame.
Based on Jerry Gracio, the screenwriter of the movie, he mentioned that the film is all about the ‘foolishness’ of being in love.
He shared what he envisioned about Quinto’s character so as Cuenca’s, “I was thinking of a middle-aged woman for the lead, Angeline I guess is perfect. I told them that the lead actor should look mysterious and weird. Mukha namang mysterious si Jake.”
The Joel Lamangan film revolves around a little mature relationship (that of Quinto and Cuenca) and a younger pair (the one with ToMiho). Both are foolish in love.
Esguerra and Nishida play baristas in the story but the latter is being pursued by her boss played by Jerald Napoles. Thus, making the film one hilarious ride about being ‘foolish’ when one is in love. Also in the cast is Cai Cortez who completes the three female friends who are ‘foolish’ when they are in love.

Based from the story of Keiko Aquino, and screenplay by Vanessa Valdez, the upcoming high-caliber drama film titled—‘The Unmarried Wife’ features three of the country’s finest actors—Angelica Panganiban, Dingdong Dantes and Paulo Avelino in the lead cast with multi-awarded film and TV international master filmmaker—Maryo J. Delos Reyes as the director; will open on Wednesday, November 16 in theaters nationwide.
Panganiban is Anne, a young woman who is stuck in her traumatic childhood past about love. Such inhibitions developed into reservations after she had her own marriage to the man she loves the most—Geoff portrayed by Dantes. And in every love story, it is most effective that if the damsel-in-distress, there is a knight in shining armor in the person of Bryan, breathed by Avelino.
After nine years, the said film marks the reunion of Panganiban, Delos Reyes and Valdez when they first collaborated in a Star Cinema film via ‘A Love Story’ back in 2007. Also, Direk Maryo returns to the said film outfit after his last project via ‘I’ll Be There’ in 2010.
According to Direk Delos Reyes, “I’m very excited to doing this film. It is a test of my skill on how to tell a story about relationships. ‘The Unmarried Wife’ is a different. It’s very timely and at the same time very important to be discussed.”
Together with Star Cinema, Direk Maryo along with Vanessa and the three powerful and equally intense actors—Angleica, Dingdong and Paulo; the film promises to change the way people perceive men being cheaters and women failing to be faithful in relationships.
Avelino in a bloggers’ conference mentioned that what makes the film different from other relationship-centered movies, “It is organic. It is like being a witness to conversations between couples; very at the moment.”
