Movie Info: In the movie, “Of All The Things”, Aga Muhlach plays the role of Umboy, a notary public attorney who earns a living by notarizing important documents and other papers, while Regine Velasquez on the other hand plays the role of Berns, a professional documents fixer. Every time Berns needs the help of a notary public, she goes to Umboy to “legalized” everything. This “legalization” process of documents was somehow Umboy does not agree with Berns. Their different ideology and principles in life have created a cat-and-dog fight situation between the two. –Viva Films

The Positive: The film took 3 years in production due to schedule conflicts with the lead stars. Thus, the script is quite calculated but in a good way.

There’s a level of sophistication in the relationship of Regine and Aga’s characters that each one has an interesting story to tell.

Comic relief is served by John Lapus, Gina Pareño and even Regine Velasquez which is a good contrast to Aga Muhlach’s melodramatic take on his character. Tommy Abuel, on the other hand, is effective on his role as a father trying to make his son feel that he is not disappointed on him.

The Negative: The tandem of Regine Velasquez and Aga Muhlach has been proven a box office hit on the big screen not just once but twice. First in “Dahil May Isang Ikaw” (1999) and second in “Pangako Ikaw Lang” (2001). Is third time a charm for their 3rd movie? Unfortunately not. Sad to say, the chemistry between the two stars is no longer there.

Time has also taken some potentially good elements in the film. The moments were not achieved, the climax underwhelming and the pacing slow.
