About Crazy Beautiful You

Crazy Beautiful You is a 2015 Filipino teen romantic comedy-drama film directed by Mae Czarina Cruz-Alviar starring Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.


Plot
Sometimes, though we don’t expect to find love, it’s the one that finds us. Jackie (Kathryn Bernardo), whose rebellious spirit forces her mother (Lorna Tolentino) to take her in a medical mission in Tarlac in hopes that she’d turn for the better. There, Jackie meets a jolly lad named Kiko (Daniel Padilla), who will make sure she gets all her tasks done. In the middle of his mission, he and Jackie will discover something crazy… and beautiful.




My notes on Crazy Beautiful You:
Movie review by Jason Javier

1. The movie opened with a car race straight out of The Fast and the Furious. Only Kathryn Bernardo was no Michelle Rodriguez because she would rather die than hit a stray dog. And at the rate that her car was going, how did she not even end up slamming the post?

2. Do we really allow cellphones in jail? I'm asking since I've never seen jail selfies. Or anyone tweeting how sad they are in solitary confinement.

3. Kathryn sounded like she had a constant cold. Every word had an additional H ("Ghive mhe bhack mhy phhone, pfowsz!"). She used to be one of my favorite local actresses but she hasn't done anything substantial after her excellent stint in Magkaribal. She really needs to break free from this love team in the same way that the other Mara became a fully-realized actress after going solo.

4. Did the chase sequence really have to be in slow motion? Did we really need that shot of calamansi (or whatever produce) slowly fly in the air for cinematic effect? No. Just no.

5. Daniel Padilla fared much better in this movie even with his constant posturing reminiscent of uncle Robin Padilla circa '90s. He was charming and sympathetic and yes, much cuter with his new clean-cut and borta look. More swooning expected. (He might need to bleach his teeth, though.)

6. Why do a lot of these young guys (especially the ones from ABS-CBN) shave their armpits? None of my business, but still curious.

7. The movie was so badly-lit that the actors' faces either looked lahar-ridden or overexposed. What happened to the usual Star Cinema gloss?

8. Mini-commercials for ABS-CBN Mobile and KFC. They should have used the extra income on the movie's photography.

9. Wait, I've seen this immersion movie before when it was still called Catch Me... I'm in Love with Sarah Geronimo and Gerald Anderson. And it was also directed by Mae Cruz. Have we really run out of ideas?

10. I bet Kathryn has a separate closet for all of her crop tops. Does she seriously wear anything else?

Crazy Beautiful You is directed by Mae Cruz-Alvia and Produced by Star Cinema

  1. I was hoping for a more detailed review from the movie, but this article is more of bashing it. A good reviewer gets to state what they got from a movie from an objective point of view (negatives, positives, overall plot and lessons you get from watching the movie) but for this, you completely sound like a hater.
