No Other Woman

Watching the movie No Other Woman last friday lead to a very random dream about an ex-boyfriend and his wife. Honestly I don't even think about these people, so why on earth would I dream about them? In the dream, I was flirting with the ex-boyfriend in front of the wife. Parang Anne Curtis lang. Naging kontrabida tuloy ako. 

Anyway, let's talk about the movie. First of all, I wouldn't have watched the movie if it were not for Carmi Martin's punch lines. I must say that Star Cinema made the right choice in including that scene in the trailer as it drew curiosity among people like me, who wouldn't necessarily watch Filipino films (anymore) but has a passion for funny and palaban punch lines. I couldn't think of anyone else who could have delivered those lines better than Miss Carmi Martin, so well done.

With regards to the main characters, Anne Curtis is actually the best among the three. She was perfect for her role and her acting was very natural. I think she deserves an award for this movie. Although I have not actually seen Derek Ramsay act before, I think he was good. And Cristine Reyes? Well for me she was not the ideal person to portray the role of Charmaine. I feel that someone like Angelica Panganiban would have done more justice to the role. Her acting was sometimes boring and quite pilit in some scenes. But otherwise she was okay.

No Other Woman is a typical Filipino movie about illicit affairs though. The story for me was very familiar. The scenes towards the climax became too predictable. But despite that, I certainly enjoyed watching the movie -thanks to Anne Curtis, Carmi Martin and the punch lines!

And to end this blog, here are some of the famous punch lines:

"Huwag mong sayangin ang lakas mo, kilalanin mo muna ang kalaban mo" - Carmi

"Anak, ang tandaan mo pag ang lalaki maya't maya nagpapalit ng babae, okay lang yun. Pero pag ang lalaki hindi na nagpalit at may suki na siyang kabit, dun lumaban ka na." -Carmi

"Hindi ko kayang makipag-agawan, at saka bakit ko kailangang ipaglaban kung alam kong akin?"- Charmaine

"Dahil nga ang mundo ay isang malaking Quiapo, maraming snatcher. Maaagawan ka. Lumaban ka." - Carmi

"Kasi tignan mo naman yang itsura mo. Panahon na para i-pack up mo yang Lucy Torres mo, ilabas mo na diyan si Gretchen Barretto. Ako na bahala sa red stiletto mo!"- Carmi

"Ano bang mas madaling kalaban, yung putang mahirap, o putang mayaman?" - Charmaine

"Pareho-pareho lang putang mga yun. Yung mayaman original ang Hermes, yung mahirap binili sa Greenhills! Yun lang yun." - Carmi

Speaking of Hermes, I loved the scene when Kara threw her Hermes at Ram. That was brave I thought. =)
