This local movie is a feel good movie. Nothing serious with the storyline, it is about a novel called “The Gifted”, which the main characters were Anne Curtis as Zoe Tuazon, Cristine Reyes as Aica Tabayoyong and Sam Milby as Mark Ferrer. It started from their childhood and how they became close until high school, when Zoe (Anne Curtis) was really determined to be top of their class. She took advantage of Aica (Cristine Reyes) while she is so madly in love with Mon (Sam Milby), a newly transferred student that needs help on his academic, so she made a deal to make all his assignments, projects and even copy her test papers during exams. In return, all he has to do is make Aica (Cristine Reyes) distracted with her studies and believes that he is also in love with her. Then, the last quarter of the school year ended, they both have the same average. Afterwards, the parents of Zoe (Anne Curtis) donated a building for the school which made her the valedictorian of the class. It made Aica (Cristine Reyes) fuming with anger, while having a dinner both of them exchanged some hurtful words. It ended their friendship. After 10 years, both of them became successful in their own ways. Their paths will cross again because of the high school reunion, the war begins.
This movie is lightweight compare to their previous movies such as No Other Woman. Anne Curtis was good on the movie. She portrayed the character easily. She is so cute even she gained 200 plus lbs. hehe On the other hand, Sam Milby is a surprisingly funny with his bisayan accent. Hahaha who thought it would be coming. Moreover, Cristine Reyes was too good (too mabait) on the movie. I think being maldita will suit her most than being the damsel in distress. Hehe
The Verdict: 3.4 out of 5 stars.
