Momsie’s Review: Starting Over Again

It’s been a while since I made my last movie review, not because I did not see any movie after watching It Takes a Man and a Woman.  I’ve watched a few other Star Cinema movies but unfortunately, I didn’t have the time to write my review.  After watching, Papa P (Piolo Pascual) and Toni Gonzaga’s latest movie (twice), I just know that I won’t let this movie pass without writing something about it.

This time, I will do it differently, I am not writing about how i find the movie, I will not comment on how the script was written or how well the director and the actors executed the movie, instead I’ll write about  some parts of the movie as if it really happened in real life.

Relate Part (part of the movie where I feel that most moviegoers can relate or that part that really happens in real life)

I think most people will agree that there was a time in their lives that they regret letting go of someone or  letting an opportunity passed and when the time comes that we realized how important that person or opportunity was, it is already too late.  And just like Ginny no matter how much she wanted Marco back so badly, she can no longer take back the chance that she already let go. Not everyone gets a second chance…

Not So Real (part of the movie that I think rarely happens in real life)

For me, it is really hard to believe that someone like Patty still exists, she is so nice to her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend. In the confrontation scene, where Ginny told her that she should let Marco go and she (Ginny) and Marco made out, I feel that, it is so rare that a girlfriend’s reaction would be like hers – too good to be true.

Please Explain (part of the movie which seems unclear to me)

Though she explained to Marco that the reason why she decided to leave him is because of fear that they might end up like her (Ginny) parents because she is starting to see her father in Marco, I still don’t understand how she managed not to look for Marco for 4 years if she really loves him that much. And ever since college days, she is into this how come she didn’t think of writing an email to Marco when she was about to leave and have it sent to Marco after she left for Spain. The movie was trying to made the viewers see that she continued to love Marco and she is suffering all those years that they are apart, but I just can’t believe that she never thought of contacting him or finding out what happened to him even once?

Most Favorite (Need not to explain this, the word speaks for it self)

I love that part where Marco and Ginny attended the university’s homecoming. I love it because Piolo Pascual was so gorgeous in that scene and the conversation they (Marco and Ginny) had was so real. Ex-lovers, who have not moved on can be expected to talk the way they did. And because Marco was extra gorgeous on that scene, you would want Ginny to borrow Basha’s line to Popoy in their “One More Chance” movie and tell Marco -“ako na lang, ako na lang ulit.”

Unlike (If you’re into Facebook, you know what I mean by this)

I love how the movie tried to make the ending to be realistic, like what I said – not everyone gets a second chance, but being the ” hopeless romantic” that I am, I will be happier if Marco chose Ginny. If they end up together and continue where they left of.

And here are the memorable  lines from the movie:

Starting-Over-Again-car-piolo“If you insist, how can I resist?” – Ginny

“I will do everything it takes to bring you back. I will never lose hope that we will have our second chance.” – Marco

“Anong karapatan mong hingin ang isang bagay na pinagdamot mong ibigay? I deserved an explanation. I deserved an acceptable reason.” – Marco

Adik ka na naman sa pag-asa eh. Try mo na kaya lumaklak ng realidad?” – Wella

Do we still have a second chance? Naniniwala ka rin ba na our love story deserves a better ending?”– Ginny

“Ours began in a most unexciting way, as friends. Now, our love may be quiet and boring but it is sure. With the right amount of trust and love, and even an allowance for mistake.” – Patty

“In love there is no fear.” – Patty

“My love is bigger than your failures.” – Patty

“I can never un-love you, I just love you in a different way now.” – Marco

“Your timing is just perfect.” – Ginny

Are you one of those who lined up to see this movie? What’s your favorite scene in the movie or should I say what’s the most memorable line for you?
