While everyone in the Philippines were busy watching Pacquiao-Cotto fight, I was watching the TV screening of My Big Love.
This movie was from 2008. The stars were Kristine Hermosa, Sam Milby and Toni Gonzaga. Well, I think the title says it all that it is about love. What the title doesn’t say is that this movie is also about looking beyond the physical aspects of a person.
Sam Milby stars as Macky, a pastry chef. His character had this huge crush on Kristine Hermosa’s character, Nina. Macky showered her with gifts, flowers and food but everything changed when they met in person. Nina had a shock of her life when a 300 pound guy showed up in front of her.
Toni Gonzaga’s character, Aira on the other hand was a fitness instructor. She tried to work hard to provide for her family. She attempted a lot of times to help Macky get in shape in order to get the love of his life, Nina.
When Macky finally agreed to be Aira’s client, the 2 ended up learning to love and care for each other in the process.
Aira accepted an offer to work abroad and had to leave for 2 years. During this time, Macky continued to work hard to lose weight. He then became a most sought after bachelor. He ended up with his forever crush, Nina.
When Aira came back, well you guessed it: Macky became confused as to who he really loved. Is it the one who he had been dreaming of or the one who had loved him unconditionally? I love this movie! It had its touching moments & also there were funny comedic moments.
Star Cinema is really making quality movies that I love. I’m really glad that I was able to catch it this morning! 🙂
My Rating for My Big Love: 3.5 out of 5 stars
