Tanging Inas last installment promises to make Pinoys laugh on Christmas day



Everyone was in high spirits during the premiere of Ang Tanging Ina Mo: Last Na 'lsquo;To held last December 20, 2010 at Cinema 6 of SM Megamall. Lead star and undisputed Comedy Queen Ai-Ai de las Alas was escorted to the event by no less than Piolo Pascual (who is rumored to be her next leading man in a yet undisclosed movie). Other Kapamilya artists who showed up to give their support to the movie included Megastar Sharon Cuneta and Toni Gonzaga. ABS-CBN top executives Charo Santos-Concio, Cory Vidanes, and Malou Santos were also there to grace the affair.

In the third and final installment to the successful Tanging Ina series, Ai-Ai reunites with her children Marvin Agustin, Nikki Valdez, Kaye Abad, and Marc Acueza who all make a return appearance. Another comedic treat is the return of Tonton Gutierrez, Jestoni Alarcon, and Dennis Padilla who had all previously played the role of Ina Montecillo'rsquo;s dearly departed hubbies. Comedian Empoy made his mark as Shaina Magdayao'rsquo;s hilarious husband-to-be. The cast is rounded out with the inclusion of child superstar Xyriel Manabat along with Owie Boy Gapuz.

Ina Montecillo has come a long way from raising her 12 children from the first movie to becoming president of the country in the second one. Now, as she goes back to being a humble citizen and mother, Ina must face a new kind of personal challenge. After finding out that she has a terminal illness and only has a few months to live, Ina must find the best possible way to break the news to her brood. Top comedienne Eugene Domingo also adds to the laughs as Ina'rsquo;s best friend Rowena, who is secretly carrying on with a romance with one of Ina'rsquo;s bodyguards named Felix, who is played by Fil-Brit hunk Jon Avila. As Ina comes to terms with her own mortality, she exerts all her effort to get her children'rsquo;s lives in order at the same time. What follows is an incredibly wacky yet touching journey that proves that she is indeed the picture of a "nata-tanging" ina.

Catch Ang Taning Ina Mo, last Na 'lsquo;To in the Metro manila Film Festival as it opens on December 25 in all theaters nationwide.
