For the 3rd time in a row, I was invited to cover a bloggers conference for Vic Sotto’s movie. This time it’s the MMFF 2013 entry, My Little Bossings. Also in the cast are Kris Aquino, Ryzza Mae Dizon and James “Bimby” Yap. This is a welcome relief as Vic Sotto has been fielding the Enteng Kabisote franchise for several years now every December.
When I first heard about the movie, there’s a part of me that find it interesting. We all know how Vic and Kris were “linked” before. To see them working together instead of having their respective entries for the Metro Manila Film Fest is a good team up. Add to that the tandem of the talented and funny Ryzza Mae and the well-mannered Bimby.
In the movie, Vic plays the role Torky Villanueva who works as a bookeeper for the millionaire cash management specialist Baba Atienza (Kris). Because of some conflict in her business, Baba entrusts her son Justin (Bimby) to Torky’s care for fear of her life. In the meantime, Torky’s niece Ice (Aiza) who lives in the same house with him, is involved in an advocacy for street children where street kid Ching (Ryzza ) becomes her special ward. Ice brings Ching home when the orphanage closed down. The fun begins when all these people start living in one roof while they each tackle his respective personal dilemma.
Bloggers had a chance to ask Vic, Ryzza and writer Bibeth Orteza during the bloggers night held at Annabel’s Tomas Morato. There we learned that the idea of making a movie for Vic and Ryzza came from Bibeth who saw the artists’ good chemistry. The idea of bringing Bimby to the movie came from Vic who shared that they previously approached Kris as they wanted to guest the boy to their show. But instead of allowing the guesting, Bimby’s mom suggested a movie. Vic held on to Kris’ words and so approached the actress for My Little Bossings.
My Little Bossings is definitely a different offering from Vic as this deals with a normal life unlike the fairytale appeal of Enteng Kabisote. I’m sure that the movie will be a hit once again, especially with Ryzza. Watching the little girl during the bloggers conference, I was personally surprised at how intelligent she is. Ryzza can hold her own against Vic as far as delivering lines and exchanging banters. She can think on her feet and deliver punch lines that would make everyone laugh.
Catch Vic, Kris, Ryzza and Bimby in My Little Bossings, which also stars Aiza Seguerra, Jaclyn Jose, Jose Manalo, Paolo Ballesteros, Barbie Forteza, Neil Coleta, and Neil Sese from the direction of Marlon Rivera. Story and screenplay by Bibeth Orteza. “My Little Bossings” starts showing on Christmas Day as an entry to the 2013 MMFF.
