The Mistress Fever

Yesterday, I was one of the many  Filipinos here in Winnipeg who patiently lined up in Northgate Cineplex to see  another blockbuster movie of my super crush  –  John Lloyd Cruz and my favorite leading lady for him – Bea Alonzo.

The long wait is finally over!  Filipinos here in Canada, specifically here in Winnipeg can now watch Filipino movies again (the last movie that I saw here is also a JLC-Bea movie – Miss You Like Crazy).  And I will not deny it – I am a self-confessed John Lloyd-Bea fan.  Since I saw them in their first ever teleserye  – Kaytagal Kang Hinintay where they played the role of  Yuri and Katrina, I have loved them!

 As for The Mistress, I can really say that it’s worth the money or as they say in Tagalog  “sulit ang bayad.” The movie was really good and the stars delivered a very good acting.  Though I am not happy and satisfied with the ending. For a hopeless romantic like me, I expected a happy ending.

er thing which I didn’t like about the movie is taht there are scenes which for me is just impossible to happen. Especially in the Philippines where prominent and rich people are in the newspaper, in the magazine cover, in the new in the TV and radio, how could one not know that this super gwapong bachelor is the son of one of the most successful business man in the country.  Well, that was just my opinion… Maybe because, I love Popoy and Basha more.  Though, I must say I love how both John Lloyd and Bea played the roles of JD and Sari.

 Again my long-time crush did not fail me! As what  Boy Abunda would always say, “he is a brilliant actor.”  The movie was manipulated by the 4 main actors – the wife, the benefactor, the lover and the mistress. Everyone especially John Lloyd played his role really well.

But the best for me in this movie is the lines and dialogues used in this movie.   And here are some of my favorite lines:

” Hindi dahil gusto mo, makukuha mo.”
“Makukuha ko dahil gusto ko. Gusto ko talaga.”
“Stand in the corner.”
“What’s with the head to foot thing?”
“It’s Thursday. It’s the day of the week that hurts me… He is with her every Thursday, every fuckin’ Thursday fuckin’ her.”
“I’ll never give you the pleasure of calling me a loser every single day.”
“I live to disappoint you, father. It’s my greatest joy.”
“I didn’t you raise you to turn your back on me when I need you most… You ungrateful, boy.”
“What kind of a son are you?”
“The kind that doesn’t want you as a father.”
“Yung Thursday na finally sasabihin mong gusto mo ako maging Mr. Everyday.”
“I cannot share you with any man.”
” I told you, I’m not giving up kasi gusto ko.”
“Kung gusto, maraming paraan. Kung ayaw,  maraming dahilan.”
“Hindi  mo malalaman na may kulang hanggang walang darating na mag-pupuno.”
” You enjoy being some old man’s little secret.”
“Walang  babaeng pinangarap maging kabit.”
“By the way, I am his wife…. As long as I am alive, you will never be promoted to wife.”
“Ang daming dahilan para hindi kita mahalin. Pero may isang dahilan para ‘di ko magawa yun. Mahal kita. Yun lang yun.”
“Ang  kunwari, pwedeng magkatotoo kung gusto mo.”
“Siguro  sa kunwari nalang natin pwedeng mahalin ang isa’t-isa.”
