Like The Comeback, this one just couldn’t decide on the right tone. Except for the funny opening audition, the rest just strained for laughs and tears. Carabao English just doesn’t cut it anymore.
So Olongapo is a place where crushed dreams get brushed off and serious problems just magically disappear. Great.
I also couldn’t understand the choice of the shaky cam. The last fifteen minutes were really brutal to the eyes.
