Movie Review: You're My Boss

You’re My Boss centers on a smart and bossy airline company executive named Georgina (Toni Gonzaga) who will do everything to close an important deal with foreign investors. They, however, wouldn’t negotiate with anyone in their company save for their big boss, who’s on leave. In a desperate attempt to win them over, she introduces her assistant Pong (Coco Martin) as the president, and thus begins the pretense that will lead them to discover what’s real and lovable about each other.

Funny, heart-warming and hilarious all at once and with superb acting from Coco and Toni. Aside from its good direction and witty screenplay, I can say that the solid foundation of the film is based on the undeniable chemistry between the two leads Coco Martin and Toni Gonzaga that exceptionally excel in making our hearts laugh out loud. The comedic timing of the two is commendable. Bonus part of the film are the beautiful shots in Batanes that are well captured and engage us audience to experience the place. The usual element of romantic comedy of Star Cinema still prevail in the film with a touch of qualitative Jadaone's writing skills along with hugot jokes and moment initiated by the film That Thing Called Tadhana and English Only Please. The film is well applauded by the audience and the strong box office reception on first day of showing is unstoppable, so kudos to the team. I like the upbeat theme song "Baby I Need Your Loving" that adds flavor to the film as well as the film's musical scoring and editing that's also commendable.

My expectations for this film were not particularly high but this is a fun ride. That's mostly thanks to the hilarious writing and outstanding acting.  Overall I enjoyed the film and the style of Jadaone's humor still makes me fall out of chair laughing plus the combination of Toni and Coco that have generated chemistry in the film. A perfect movie to watch this summer if you want to enjoy, chill out and fall in love. A highly entertaining one.


My Verdict: 4/5
