The depiction of this film of the igorot/aeta girl was a crass choice by the producers. It was insensitive and cruel, much like Filipino humor.
Deramas and Viceral finally created a film together that the whole family or gang will enjoy... Smiling and laughing exiting cinema after watching the movie... =D
A ridiculous story. Big fan of Vice but even he could not mend or improvise on-screen how badly the script is.
vice has been doing well.
My first share of MMFF2013 movie was Direk Wenn Deramas' Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy starring Vice Ganda. When it was anticipated that the latter will be doing Sisterakas sequel, with Kris Aquino and Ai-ai delas Alas similar to last year, a solo movie with four different characters was offered to him.
According to showbiz news, the role was initially offered to Sweet Lapus but eventually given to Vice Ganda.
Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy maybe one of Direk Wenn Deramas' signature uplifting the gay/LGBT community to another level after doing Bekikangs.
I would say that this movie was similar to Bromance with a twist of four characters instead of two. While Bromance was a rivalry between two brothers separated and got back together, this movie quadrupled the story with four different sexual preferences.
Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy is a story of betrayal, forgiveness and moving on. A loving mother (Maricel Soriano), a cowardly father (Joey Marquez) and the quadruplets (Vice Ganda) who portrays a girl who claims to be a model, a boy who claims to be a racer with Hepatitis, a bakla (gay) who's bitter since their father left them, and a tomboy (lesbian) who claims to be a singer with anemia.
Four of them were separated the moment their grandmother (Joy Viado) flew to the states with the two babies who apparently were raised to be girl and boy. The other two were left behind with their mom, grew up in the farm and became bakla and the other a tomboy.
The reunion was staged when Peter (boy), needs a liver transplant and Mark (tomboy) was the only compatible twin.
The plot heated when unsettled differences and issues were raised, and their parents' unresolved issue was added.

In case the movie was starred by Sweet Lapus, will it have the same impact to the viewers? I, personally would say YES! The fact that Direk Wenn Deramas can wave his wand to make an experimental movie to a blockbuster. No doubt the ratings would still be the same. He already did it when Zanjoe Marudo takes on Bromance.
Very funny movie! Awesome! Vice Uganda did a great job on this movie.
Dont expect good FX on Philippine.cinema (as always) and you will enjoy this show. I think this is the funniest movie Vice made to date. Worth $6.99
The film sketches a variety of broad humor that sometimes misses and diminishes morale but it is as well an effective entertainment and a great advantage for its ensemble of casts to showcase comedic talents whether bland or just right. It's not a good film but at its heart, it offers festive fun that wouldn't work if executed to perfection.
