REVIEW: Things you shouldn’t miss in ‘Just The Three of Us’
050416-JustThe3OfUs_PUSH.jpgStar Cinema’s Just the Three of Us premiered last Tuesday night, May 3, with a star-studded red carpet event at Cinema 7 in Trinoma Mall. The event was attended by the whole cast and Kapamilya stars like Kathryn Bernardo, Tommy Esguerra, Miho Nishida, Ylona Garcia, Bailey May, Joshua Garcia, It’s Showtime’s Girl Trends and Hashtags, and Gimme 5, among others. ABS-CBN big bosses Charo S. Concio and Malou Santos were also present during the event. 

Directed by the celebrated Cathy Garcia-Molina, the film paired ABS-CBN actor John Lloyd Cruz and GMA’s Jennylyn Mercado for the first time. Their chemistry was nonetheless, commended by the premiere night’s moviegoers. 

A mix of romance, comedy, and drama, Just The Three of Us tells the lives of success-driven pilot Uno Abusado (John Lloyd) and quirky family woman CJ Manalo (Jennylyn). CJ gets impregnated by her crush Uno after a one-night stand. She would then do anything and everything to make the heartless Uno believe that the child she is carrying is his baby. The story, which featured many symbolisms and turning points, will take off from this. 

A movie filled with quotable quotes, one will also surely appreciate how the characters stayed true to their roles.

Without spoiling specific details, here are some of the things you should watch out for in the movie.

1. John Lloyd and Jennylyn’s steamy scenes
2. The character of Richard Yap, who and how he will turn out to be
3. Uno’s little girl neighbor and the symbol of her potted plants
4. What Uno hides in his other room
5. The role of actor Baron Geisler
6. How the importance of family is reflected in CJ and Uno’s situations
