Movie Review: You Changed My Life

Once again Laida Magtalas and Miggy Montenegro captured the heart of many viewers with their charms and super kilig moments.

Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz returns to the big screen in the movie “You Changed My Life”, the sequel to their 2008 Blockbuster Hit “A Very Special Love”.

Last night was the red carpet premiere of You Changed My Life and thanks to Star Cinema for giving me the chance to watch it.  Also, thanks to Ms. Lorelie Dionisio-Piravalasamy of ABS CBN for allowing us to be seated next to the casts.

Synopsis (Star Cinema)

It’s been 6 months since Laida Magtalas won the heart of her prince charming Miggy Montenegro and it has been nothing but roses—she got promoted, Flippage is now in the same building where Miggy works and best of all, her hair looks better. To Laida, nothing can break her perfect world.

Meanwhile, Miggy also feels like he’s on top of the world. He is finally okay with his family and for the first time, he’s in a relationship that has meaning. He is slowly proving to everyone that he is indeed a work in progress.

But things are quickly proven not quite what they seem. Miggy gets promoted but is assigned in Laguna. Laida, on the otherhand, is being offered a job in Canada. With their careers leading Laida and Miggy to different paths, their relationship suffers from the pressures of being apart. Will Laida and Miggy be able to keep their happily ever after? Or will they realize, a little too late, that living the dream is actually harder than attaining it?

My Opinion

I really love the movie. I love their chemistry.  There is something between them that will make you super kilig.  It is really a very good team up of John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo. Sarah is very simple and beautiful.  John Lloyd is so handsome.  They really look cute.  Their tandem has natural chemistry and it doesn’t look like pilit.

Having John Lloyd as a good actor, and Sarah as a natural actress made this film remarkable.  I’m pretty sure that Sarah and John Lloyd will make another box office hit with “You Changed My Life”.

This film will make you laugh, giggle, maybe cry then laugh again.  Thanks to Sarah’s quirky antics, humorous lines.

I thought rain dance is over but it’s not.  So watch out for their  trick or move and savour the kilig moment of John Loyd and Sarah. Also watch out for the Rayver and John Lloyd dance showdown.

So don’t miss this romantic comedy movie.

You Changed My Life is now showing in over a hundred cinemas nationwide.
