Wow, a whole week has passed since we got to watch Ang Tanging Ina Ninyong Lahat. Well, what can I say really? It’s an Ai-Ai dela Alas movie. It’s almost like watching Jim Carrey’s upcoming move “Yes Man” (of which I am so excited about) without duress and then end up wondering why you hate it or didn’t get the humor as the end credits rolled on screen.
Honestly, it doesn’t take a genius to laugh at Ai-Ai’s movies. However, it takes a genius to understand the lessons they wanted to teach all of us amidst all the slapstick and shit. Needless to say, it’s about family, but just like my sister, I am particularly not happy with how the movie portrayed a woman’s inability to be the President and a mother at the same time.
These days, women are supposed to be empowered. For a feminist film, they seem to be in the wrong direction. But then again, that’s just me.
