Moron 5 and the Crying Lady Movie PosterMy long weekend ended with a bang as I watched the block screening of Moron 5 and the Crying Lady at Gateway Cineplex 10 Platinum Cinema. It felt like living the life of the rich and famous as I sit on the cinema’s plush and comfy La-Z Boy and fed with hotdog, unlimited popcorn, drinks and Taco Bell burritos, watching in what seem to be the craziest movie of the year.

Gateway Cineplex Cinema 10 PlatinumI don’t really watch local films in cinemas. Wait, let me rephrase that. I haven’t watched local films in cinemas for the longest time, for like 7 years. The last time was way back 2005 when I watched one of the movies at the Metro Manila Film Festival with a friend. That was the worst movie experience I ever had. Feeling shortchanged, I swore to only watch Tagalog films on television or DVDs only if time allows it.

For the entire duration of the Holy Week, I stayed at home, watch TV, surf, play a video game, do the laundry and blog; nothing special really except that I’d do all those while pigging out. But it was getting to the point of being bored that I immediately accepted the invite when I received the notification from Facebook. I’m glad I did. 🙂

Moron 5 and the Crying Lady is the latest comedy offering by Viva Entertainment, starring Marvin Agustin, Luis Manzano, Billy Crawford, Martin Escudero and DJ Durano as the 5 male lead and John “Sweet” Lapus as the other male… err.. (fe)male lead. A movie about friendship, family, hatred, vengeance, and dumbness. Yes my dear friends, dumbness; that’s what the title is all about, gets? 😉 Check out the video to help you understand better…

I enjoyed the movie a lot! For once, here’s a Filipino movie I would highly recommend to all movie-going public. I love the fact that though stupidity was clearly being showcased here to make people laugh, it was downright laughable but not offensive. There’s innocence and the purity of it all that you don’t hate it. Reflecting on the movie as I write this review, I realized there were scenes that were utterly stupid, like not knowing that they are in the cemetery, grown ups as they are. I mean, c’mon, no matter how dumb a kid is, I’m sure one will recognize that place anywhere, anytime. But that’s where I was amazed and delighted — that I don’t have to analyze the movie as I watch it. It was all pure, clean fun and I love that!

John Lapus - Moron 5 and the Crying LadyThe lead actors did a good job in portraying their roles in the movie. John Lapus is obviously in his element portraying the gay character out to take revenge against his former friends. He brought the house down when he showcased his talent in impersonating different characters towards the latter part of the movie. The supporting casts, which included German Moreno, Arlene Mulach, Dennis Padilla and Jon Santos, did their part in making this movie real fun. Kudos to Director Wenn V. Deramas for bringing out the best in every character’s performances!

Moron 5 and the Crying Lady is worth watching with family, friends and everyone in between. The movie was given a General Patronage rating by the MTRCB. That means the kids can join in the fun as they enjoy summer vacation. Showing at leading movie houses nationwide, this is one movie that will not leave you crying as you head out the door thinking you wasted your hard-earned money. Watch it now! 🙂
