Coco Martin and Vice Ganda successfully brought to the big screen a comedy-filled and an action-packed movie for the whole family this Metro Manila Film Festival 2015 with Beauty and the Bestie. The team-up of these two major Kapamilya stars has definitely brought huge laughs and heart-stopping moments among movie viewers this MMFF season.
Coco Martin plays the role of Emman Castillo, a secret agent of an elite task force who was assigned on a special mission. He sought the help of his “ex-best friend” Eric “Erika” Villavicencio played by Vice Ganda. Together, the characters worked hand in hand to successfully solve the important mission assigned to Emman.
Vice Ganda, as always, has showcased his wit and humor which brought enormous fun to the movie. It is also admirable how Vice managed to perform the complicated action scenes which added excitement to the film.
Meanwhile, Coco who is currently known for his action scenes in his primetime teleserye Ang Probinsyano, brought massive comic relief with his funny lines and antics especially when sharing the big screen with Vice.
Supporting cast James Reid and Nadine Lustre brought the sweet moments into the movie. Fans of the tandem will surely satisfy their JaDine “kilig cravings” if they watch the movie.
Other stars like Lassy Marquez and MC Calaquian, were also commendable as the best pals of Vice’s character in the movie. Their impeccable timing to Vice’s punch lines made the audience double up with more laughter.
Overall, Beauty and the Bestie succeeds as a comedy-action flick for moviegoers who seek to be entertained and thrilled this holiday season. Vice and Coco’s partnership s definitely the tandem to beat in the MMFF as they brought their A-game to the table by showing another side of themselves as actors.
