You to Me Are Everything: Movie Review

Can GMA Films even keep up with its main rival Star Cinema? It seems that the film outfit has released only two films this year and this even includes the movie we will talk about, "You to Me Are Everything" (correct us if we're wrong). No wonder Star Cinema has been handling out lackluster films - no competition means no push or challenge to make good films. Works almost like a monopoly if you ask us. We are very hopeful indeed that "You to Me Are Everything" will be a movie that can shatter the preconditioned mind of the mainstream audience. The film stars the big-yet-controversial tandem of Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera. Can the couple be the instigators of change? Read on to find out.

Life suddenly takes a huge 360 degree turn for Raphael (Dingdong Dantes), the wealthy son of a congressman and Iska (Marian Rivera), a simple girl living in the mountains of Benguet. Raphael loses all the wealth he’s used to upon his father’s arrest. Iska on the other hand is left with a huge fortune with the death of her father - including his stake on huge corporations. With this, she is forced to take part on his father’s business. As they are both adjusting to the extreme changes in their lifestyle, their paths cross. Iska decides to hire Raphael as her business manager while Raphael is determined to use this vulnerable and naive girl to get his riches back again.

The film was so-so at best and for sure, it won't make the competition break a sweat. What's so wrong with this film is that it was too typical. Too cliche` with what we have had for years and similar even to what their rival is serving up - including warts and all. They say that imitation is the best form of flattery but we are really sick of this mentality as the films are going from bad to worse as the months go by. What's up with the pig as well? It sure did not add to the substance or story of the movie. Although this is the case, the film was still light-hearted and it was funny at times. Marian Rivera was good, her acting will undoubtedly appeal to the masses. Truthfully, she may have been the only one who saved this film from total breakdown. Much can be said for Dingdong though as he acted poorly and was very much disconnected from the entire movie. We've seen a lot more local actors (even the ones who are not as good-looking) with more charm than him! Overall, not seeing "You to me Are Everything" won't make you miss much especially if you already watched a lot of the local variants of romantic comedies before.

Rating: 2 reels






Why you should watch it:
- Marian Rivera was funny, and truly a natural
- this is a light-hearted film that went beyond our lowly expectations

Why you shouldn't watch it:
- the film's story is typical and so-so
- Dingdong Dantes had a bad acting night in this film

Dingdong was a disappointment and for sure he affected how we ultimately rated the film. Too bad for Marian as she really gave it her best only to be shot in the foot by her partner

By the way, thanks for the comment!

GREENWOOD, Miss. - If you want to know what it takes to manufacture a product in the United States these days, replica rolex just ask Fred Carl. The founder, president and CEO of Viking Range, Carl virtually invented the market for half-ton, restaurant-sized stoves in the home, fake watch launching his company in the late 1980s, just as a cooking craze swept American kitchens. The company rode a second wave of demand in the early 2000s, when the easy-money housing boom sent homebuyers, fake rolex watch builders and remodelers on a shopping spree for $10,000 trophy stoves. Now, with lower-cost appliance makers invading Viking’s turf, new-home construction down some 70 percent from five years ago, and recession-weary homeowners hunkered down, Viking is fighting to maintain its foothold as an American manufacturer.
