One Minute Movie Review: ‘Born to Love You’

"Born to Love You" is surprising in its humor as in its emotional texture.


Main Cast: Coco Martin, Angeline Quinto
Supporting Cast: Albert Martinez, Eula Valdez
Director: Jerome Chavez Pobocan
Genre: Dramedy, Romance
Released By: Star Cinema
MTRCB Rating: PG-13
CEB Rating: B

Synopsis: A tour guide (Quinto) who hails from a poor family meets a struggling photographer (Martin) who has never gotten over his mother leaving when he was a kid. At first they get on each other’s nerves but soon they realize that they are meant to be together. However, there are issues and circumstances that threaten to tear them apart.

The Positive: “Born to Love You” is surprising in its humor as in its emotional texture. It endears and entertains and trumps the preceding Star Cinema rom-com.

While Coco Martin exudes emotional depth to his character, Angeline Quinto delivers light moments. Their chemistry is undeniable. Plus the best thing about Quinto’s acting debut is that she doesn’t even know that she’s funny.

The Negative: There are various subplots that are inadequately resolved like the character of Mickey Ferriols flirting with the character of Coco Martin making you think that a third party will be the upcoming conflict in the story.

Another weak point of the movie is the lack of a solid tone that will somehow leave you wondering, is it a romantic comedy or a romantic drama?

    @3fbe91d33577af8993e1785e430d2d54:disqus – puwede ba huwag mong isama si Sarah dito dahil di siya kasama sa pelikula. Sarah and Coco sa movie? Give me a break, flop ang telesersye nila eh libre na yun, movie pa eh di lugi ang starcinema. 

  4. Sobrang ganda ng “Born to Love You”. Sobrang nakakaiyak, nakakatawa at nakakainlove. Sobrang galing ni Coco at natural na natural at revelation ang pag arte ni Angeline! Perfect!
