Charged with organizing his father's funeral, Wilson Chua (Eric Quizon) hires three professional mourners with plenty of problems and enough tears to flood Manila in this heartwarming comedy. Desperate for cash, Stella (Sharon Cuneta) is happy to take the weeklong gig crying at the traditional Chinese funeral, but the stage is set for disaster when she brings B-movie actress Chua (Hilda Koronel) and the adulterous Choleng (Angel Aquino) along.

Perfs sparkle, with each thesp comfortable navigating between broad comedy and legitimate pathos.
The performances ... are as sincere and heartfelt as the mourning is not.
Best appreciated for the winning performances of its trio of stars, who convey their characters' desperation with humor and poignancy.
It has the potential to build a word-of-mouth audience through its sweet nature and lack of pretense, two qualities that are a rarity in both multiplexes and arthouses.
There aren't many surprises as the story unfolds in soap-opera fashion, with a happy ending for all concerned.
In this sloppy, happy soap opera from the Philippines, three working-class Manila women are hired as paid mourners at a traditional Chinese funeral.
It ain't War & Peace, but there are some pleasant comedic moments here.
As the weepy days go by, transgressions are forgiven, priorities reassessed and hearts healed.
