    Just a bad film; story is ridiculous. Could have been so much better.
    Sorry, I love Jo Koy and his standup, but this movie was just horrible. It seemed hurried, and there are so many plot holes. I couldn't keep count. It's Easter Sunday, but the mall is open. The boy's girlfriend was at a park playing ping-pong earlier, but later in the day, she's at the mall working at a jewelry store. Again, on Easter Sunday. It could've been so much better; I saw the spark, but it just seems like they hurried the movie and didn't work on the script.

    Now that I watched it, you can basically get the entire movie watching the trailer. Every funny joke in the movie is in the trailer. But the story itself is just so stupid if he had really worked on the script for another year, maybe talk with Seth Rogen or somebody? I don't know. This movie could've been so much better than it was. I'm a white guy living with a Filipino family, and even they were looking at their phones about halfway through the movie, not even paying attention anymore.

    Jo, I love ya brother, but this movie was horrible. Again, you had a good foundation, but the story was sooo dumb. I assume you worked on this whole thing yourself, I didn't want to share the credit with anyone, but in the future, I would recommend working with professional screenwriters.

    Superficial Comedy
    Jo Koy is my favorite comedian. He's funny about the Filipino jokes. However, the film makes reference to all his jokes. That sounded like a sitcom, not a film. Plot referred too much for his jokes, and the play seemed superficial.

    Everything you see in that film is a dysfunctional family and a man with too much responsibility. No information about Easter Sunday. Certain jokes like, let's get this party started is tiring.

    Everything revolves around family and the way you spend time with them. Superficial and tiresome. If you like it, it's cool, if you hate it, don't watch it again.

    Okay thanks for reading my review. Have a great day!

    I expected too much but the movie failed
    I was expecting similar funny stuff from jokoy as what ive seen on social media, youtube clips etc... but i was expecting too much from this rookie actor who probably havnt done a real movie acting in his life! Poor acting, poor script and jokoy is trying soo hard in his acting (maybe on the stage as a stand up comedia but not on the movie). Whats worst, he made the church his stage for his stand up comedian thingy which is not everyones cup of tea (specially from a catholic filipino). As for the comedy side.. it might get some laugh on those who lived in the states but definitely not from uk, middle east or australia... i really cant relate that much even living half of my life outside philippines.... I wont recommend this movie.
