Zanjoe and Pokwang are considered as the king and queen of Skylight Films because of the success of their respective movies in 2013. Zanjoe starred in the Wenn V. Deramas comedy Bromance where he played dual roles of identical twins with two different genders.
Pokwang on the other hand made waves in her crazy role in Don Cuaresma’s Call Center Girl where she portrayed the role of Teresa – a mother who goes all-out to win back the affections of her estranged daughter.
Both Zanjoe and Pokwang earned the respect of their peers, the elusive nods of film critics, and the adoration of their loyal fans because of their brilliance as two of the industry’s most formidable comedians today.
My Illegal Wife marks another big-screen team-up of Zanjoe and Pokwang after Cinco. Directed by blockbuster director Tony Y. Reyes, who was at the helm of hits like Star Cinema’s 2012’s Enteng Ng Ina Mo, My Illegal Wife is about a loving single mom Clarise (Pokwang) who will do anything and everything to make her family happy even if it means that she does an outrageous feat such as tricking Papa Henry (Zanjoe) – a hot stud suffering from amnesia – into believing that that he is legally married to her.
My Illegal Wife is not only a laugh-a-minute comedy for the entire family but it is also a heartwarming story that explores the limitless boundaries of true and lasting love. Moviegoers can look forward to a zany and whacky movie experience with the hysterical tandem of Z and Powkie plus the inimitable comedy of Direk Tony!
My Illegal Wife also assembles some of the country’s veteran comedians such Empoy Marquez, Joy Viado, Pooh, Edgar Allan Guzman, Beauty Gonzalez and Ms. Anita Linda along with up and coming stars Mikylla Ramirez, Steven De Guzman introducing the desirable Ellen Adarna.
My Illegal Wife opens in cinemas nationwide starting June 11.
