Critic Reviews for The Debut
Director Gene Cajayon, with co-writer John Manal Castro and a charming cast, continually subverts expectations.
Mostly the situations, albeit compressed, ring true; the characters are admirably multi-dimensional, and there are welcome doses of humor that compensate for any contrivances.
An earnest and predictable little indie.
A neat blend of well-drawn major characters and drama, music, dance, romance and humor that generates considerable charm and achieves a heartwarming resolution of its generational conflict.
The film has a sweet low-budget quality that sometimes slips into TV-movie schmaltz.
Celebrates community and family, and does so in such a warm-hearted way that its formulaic nature is easily forgiven.
