“Labs Kita.. Okey Ka Lang?” Old and New Poster
Millenials are going crazy over today’s hottest loveteams but even before KathNiel, JaDine or the LizQuen took the spotlight, kids who grew up in 90s have gone insane over the Marvin and Jolina tandem. We probably enjoyed their reunion through Flordeliza but the younger audiences have no idea how iconic this loveteam was way back in 90s. Marvin and Jolina are known for their romantic-comedy projects  both on TV and big screen and the movie “Labs Kita.. Okey Ka Lang?” is probably one of their most iconic project of all.

The movie is special in so many ways. First, it is the movie that defines “Friendzoned” at its best. “Labs Kita.. Okey Ka Lang?” is basically a story of two childhood friends Bujoy (Jolina Magdangal) and Ned (Marvin Agustin) who grew up together in Baguio City.

Apparently, Bujoy secretly fell in love with his best friend but she didn’t get enough couraged to confess it. The worst, she even helped Ned to court Mary Anne (Vanessa Del Bianco). What makes the movie even more special is the iconic dialogue that torn us all apart.  It has become one of the most memorable movie lines ever thrown in Philippine movie history which made this film a certified classic.

Okey Ka Lang?” , aanother 90s classic , finally got the same treatment and millenials will finally get a chance to witness this masterpiece of Jerry Lopez Sineng and Ricky Lee (screenplay).
