IT’S HARD to imagine Judy Ann Santos and Sarah Geronimo playing sisters. But, the lead actresses of Wenn Deramas’ “Hating Kapatid” imbue their sisterly screen affiliation with a believability that makes it easier for moviegoers to let this casting wrinkle slide:

Rica Salvador (Santos) was only 13 when her parents (Tonton Gutierrez, Cherry Pie Picache) decided to seek greener pastures in Libya, for a two-year stint that stretches on for two decades, leaving Rica and her younger sister, Cecilia (Geronimo), in the care of their firecracker-peddling grandmother, Amor (Gina Pareño).

After Cecil is hurt in an accident, the guilt-ridden Rica decides to swear off boys and breaks up with her loving boyfriend, Bong (JC de Vera), to devote her life to taking care of her kid sister—a decision that turns her into a stern and mirthless spinster who will stop at nothing to make sure that Cecil’s romantic interest, the clumsy and bumbling Edsel (Luis Manzano), doesn’t ever get to first base!

Things take a turn for the worse when the siblings’ parents finally come home, making Rica suddenly feel useless, left out and underappreciated for her sacrifices. How does Cecil make her jealous ate realize that she’s all grown up and is now more than ready to hurdle life’s challenges on her own?

Dialogue

Out-of-sync dialogue and color-grading missteps notwithstanding, there’s more to “Hating Kapatid” than the usual verbal and sight gags we’re inured to watching in local comedies.

True, the premise of Deramas’ latest rib-tickler isn’t all that original, but it’s buoyed up by a comedic sensibility that doesn’t rely on overeager actors’ vein-popping antics to draw belly laughs from the peanut gallery.

Instead, it derives its humor from the situations the characters find themselves entangled in, so the eventual comic payoff feels unforced.

The movie is a welcome change of pace for Santos and Geronimo, who get to do light comedy with a smattering of drama. The latter is well-cast in a role that doesn’t require her to do much, and plays it by the numbers.

But, the production’s top acting grade belongs to Santos, who accomplishes a difficult feat—she makes her “ogre” character likable and empathetic. She switches from drama to comedy with equal ease and never resorts to many comediennes’ pakwela shtick. Instructively, she’s a thespic sight to behold in her flirtatious, kilig moments with De Vera, which she executes with subtlety and panache.

Mistaken identity

Manzano finally gets rid of his TV-host posturing. He figures in a rip-roaring scene with Geronimo as the latter pursues him all over the metropolis to apologize for a case of mistaken identity. And, De Vera is an able and dashing consort.

Unfortunately, “Hating Kapatid” has a major drawback that distracts from its winning elements: Shameless plugs and neverending product placements, some of them with their respective taglines—pawnshops, sanitary napkins, fast-food chains, video shops, cell-phone networks, karaoke and milk products—etc!

At some point, a disapproving moviegoer behind us sang a product’s jingle just to demonstrate that too much of anything is a turnoff.

This may be true but it won't keep you from enjoying the movie. You'll still find yourself laughing so hard and be moved emotionally. Overall, it's still so worth it!

agree din ako sa review...sana lang next time wala ng ganito sa mga susunod na movies ni sarah na Viva-produced lang...
but all in all, base sa napanood ko at sa mga reaksyon ng mga kasabayan kong nanood lalo na ang nanay ko na hindi naman talaga maka-sarah all the way, e NAPAKAGANDA AT SOBRANG LAUGHTRIP talaga ang HATINGKAPATID!!!... kung meron pang word na hihigit sa "SULIT" yun na yun... sobrang nakakatawa at nakakaiyak talaga...ang daming nanood (at manonood pa, for sure!) dito sa SM City Taytay... :142sgThumb2:
Congratulations Sarah, Judy Ann, Direk Wenn and the rest of the gang for a job VERY VERY WELL done... :20sgClap: :thumb: :cheer: worship

Hating Kapatid is a very enjoyable, sobra comedy movie period.

Enjoy lahat family movie. Sa fans pati long string of commercials

alright na rin, eh papaano, endorsement queen si Sarah.

Kaya lang sa susunod, para di halata masyado distribute nila sa

scenes like sa YCML at pili na lang ng mga big endorsements lang.

Sus, paano ba maging creative ang Viva!

As a whole, bagay si Sarah at si Juday. Siempre mas veteran

actress si Juday kaya kita sa scenes. Pero comedy is like

ping pong game, kung di mahusay salo partner mo flat ang dating.

Sa lahat ng tawa scenes nila ni Juday, mahusay sya, super laugh-in.

I find this review puede na. Nuod ako sa Makati movie house,

last full show, puno moviehouse,lahat tawa sa scenes ni Sarah and Juday.

So enjoy lahat, tama na yun!
