MOVIE REVIEW: Everyday I Love You (2015)

28 comments

Everyday I Love You serves as the second time Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil are paired in a movie. ABS-CBN and Star Cinema very well know how to strike whilst the iron is hot but this one is just too soon given that its release is just a few months after two projects: their successful TV tandem in the evening teleserye Forevermore and their first movie Just the Way You Are.

In Mae Cruz-Alviar’s Everyday I Love You, not only is the grammar in the movie title taken for granted (a classic case of Every Day vs. Everyday–and let’s not forget about the missing comma), it seems that the entire movie has no regard to keeping things believable, let alone relatable. What it does best is to keep the audiences knowing what will happen next without giving the slightest chance for surprise or contemplation.

That just got to be your typical Star Cinema flick: pair up your best love team, throw in a superficial (and not to mention wholesome) plot, pepper it with supporting characters that are most of the time irrelevant, drench every scene with a love song that has a dedicated two-minute music video in the middle of the story, present a petty conflict, let the characters confront one another with loud voices and gallons of tears, and provide a happily-ever-after conclusion to an otherwise convenient love story.

And we have not even started with the flow of the story or how the story is superficial and immature! Or how it is barely possible for Gerald’s Tristan to speak clearly and that easily after having been comatose for more than six months and having undergone tracheostomy. Or how Liza’s Audrey is such a crybaby when she is supposed to be a strong girl. Or how Enrique’s Ethan is no different than his previous characters with his sticky stare and sugarcoated delivery of lines.

Aren’t we supposed to stop with make-believes that do not make sense?

  1. Wow! With your review you make me think you just watched the trailers and the teasers. Unsolicited advice: watch the movie from start to end so that yor review will make sense.You can’t even substantiate your review with solid arguments. duh!

    1. Nakakahiya naman sa 235 pesos na ibinayad ko para makapanood, di ba? Add me up on Facebook if you want to know what I watch. You can follow me there. It doesn’t hurt to use your real e-mail address. See ya!

      1. Ang aga mo naman kasi manood. First full show in first day. Kaya nagdududa yung iba. hahaha Kung di nga kita pinuntahan kahapon sa Megamall after nang movie, di rin ako maniniwala.

  2. Anu ba maganda sayo kuya yung Pabebe lang???
    Excuse me nahiya nman ang 16M na 1st day kita ng Everday I love you sayo
    Wag maniwal sa review nato napaka-BIAS obviously HATER ka
    Ang dami na nagsabi na maganda yung movie at uulit-ulitin din nila dun nlang ako makikinig

    1. Lol pabebe movie lang din ang everyday i love you.
      Yung 3 bida actor actoran lang baka pag tinanong mo kung anong favourite movie nila ni stanley kubrick hindi sila makasagot kasi hindi nila kilala kung sino siya

  3. ganu ba kapangit yung movie at kahit isang magandang scene sa movie ala kang masite? bayad pa more. so aldub cguro okay sayo? kumusta naman yung review ng pep na all praises sa movie.. haha

      1. Ano ba alam mo sa magandang movie sa hindi magandang movie? Ikaw lang ba ang dapat magandahan sa pinapanuod mo? Haha. Kung para sayo hindi maganda ang EILY , just SHUT UP! KASI ANG IMPORTANTE MAGANDA ANG MOVIE, MARAMING SUMASAYA, KINILIG AT HUMANGA SA MGA BIDA! YUN ANG IMPORTANTE. hindi ikaw ang magdedecide kung pangit o hindi! 😊

      2. Meron pang isang bobo kung basahin ang comment: “Ano ba alam mo sa magandang movie sa hindi magandang movie? Ikaw lang ba ang dapat magandahan sa pinapanuod mo? Haha. Kung para sayo hindi maganda ang EILY , just SHUT UP! KASI ANG IMPORTANTE MAGANDA ANG MOVIE, MARAMING SUMASAYA, KINILIG AT HUMANGA SA MGA BIDA! YUN ANG IMPORTANTE. hindi ikaw ang magdedecide kung pangit o hindi! 😊”

        Ang importante ate o kuya, may konting logic ka, hindi yung cocomment-comment na parang kulang sa pag-iisip. Nagbasa ka pa ng review, di mo naman yata alam kung para saan. Ang importante, mahalaga.

  4. I agree… Lahat naman ng movies ay cliché pero ibang level ang pagkaka-cliché nito. Fan ako ng LizQuen pero both of their movies disappointed me.

  5. The genre of the movie is rom-com wherein their target audience are mostly teens. We cannot really compare it with Lino Brocka’s or Ishmael Bernal’s films. They may have omitted several scenes that resulted to the unnoticed time lapse in the movie. I myself was dismayed because the scenes that we were so expecting to be shown on this movie were omitted. But all in all it was fun to watch makes me feel young again.

  6. aaminin ko masyadong cliche yung story pati yung time lapse na mapapa huh ka agad kasi ang bilis gumaling ni gerald. hindi man lang nag bago at hindi na appreciate yung ginawa ng character ni liza. (medyo bias kasi kung magbabago yung character ni gerald eh matatalo yung character ni enrique) tapos sila ethan at audrey e 55 days lang nagkakilanhan at nainlove. masyadong mabilis at irrelevant kasi bakit di na lang nilakihan pa yung time lapse at nakalimot na lang kay tristan para medyo convincing. pero habang pinapanuod ko yung movie minsan hindi na ako sa kwento nakatuon kundi sa kagwapuhan at kagandahan nilang dalawa. in short kung naging mega block buster man ito hindi dahil sa kwento kundi sa loveteam lang nila. the thing is nakakatuwa si liza. ang cute cute nya kaya na save yung story. yung movie para lang talaga magpakilig sa fans at sa iba pa kasi bago ako manuod eh laging sinasabi ng mga tao eh: “ui ang ganda ni liza”,”ui ang refreshing ng lizquen”, etc. wala silang nabanggit tungkol sa kwento. kaya kung di fan o type ang lizquen eh hindi talaga matutuwa sa story kasi gamit na.

    yung last movie nila na JTWYA eh medyo disappointed din ako kasi nabasa ko yung the bet. maganda yung story pero ibang iba na yung mga nangyari kahit sabihin natin na based yung story doon. nasagip lang talaga nila yung story as a loveteam kasi they are both gorgeous at nakakakilig. un lang

    so medyo agree ako sayo.

    lizquen fan here.

  7. Naawa talaga ko as mga granting klase ng tao sign kasi to ng mga taong di masaya sa buhay kapag naninira ka ng kasikatan at karangalan ng isang tao isang sakit to na walang gamot plus may bad karma pa in God’s time if aware you aayusin ko yung buhay ko. Hiyang hiya naman daw yun 100m nakinita ng movie sa luob ng isang Linggo kung kaya muna kumita ng 100m sa luob ng isang linggo tsaka kana manira ng tao Baka kasi lalo pang bumigat ang sama ng buhay mo sa bad karmang dadating sayo kung matindi yan sikmura mo sa paninira mo kawawa ka naman San impyerno kaba galing nakakahiya sayo kaming masayang paulit ulit nanuod ng movie at natanggal ang stress sa kilig ay hiyang hiya sa comment. Wala naman kasing kaso kung ibang network sinusuportahan mo lumaban ka ng patas wag yung naninira ka. #MatakotKaSaKarma

    1. Dear, di naman porket di niya nagustuhan ang movie eh masama na syang tao. May pa-karma karma kapa dyan. Lahat naman ng movies at palabas pwede i-judge ng kahit na sino. Ikaw ba, lahat ba ng gusto ng friends mo gusto mo din? Diba di naman. Subjective ang pag review kaya wala ka dapat ikainis. Bakit ang hirap makaunawa ng iba.

  8. Nakakatawa yung mga comment nung mga naoffend. Babasa-basa ng review tapos pag ayaw nila ang nakasulat, basher na agad ang writer, di na agad pinanood ang film, makakarma na agad, o kaya naman nakashabu na agad. It’s one thing to disagree with the review it’s another to assume that the writer’s a low-life who doesn’t know what he’s saying. Not only are you making him popular, you’re also showing how insecure and narrow-minded you are. Tapos mali pa ang grammar ninyo. Laugh trip na nakakainis haha.

  9. I do agree with the writer that Filipino romcoms can be very trite with petty plot lines and sloppy writing… But that doesn’t just go for romcoms, it goes for almost all local films. But on the other hand I think melodramatic love stories with a kilig factor is very culturally filipino, and so something to be embraced not frowned upon. Plus… People love it! Isn’t that the purpose of stories in the first place? To make people happy? romcoms don’t HAVE to be technically bad.. There are some Hollywood romcoms that are written with razor sharp precision, like 50 first dates. So maybe the solution is for everyone to stop bashing each other and instead try giving constructive criticism? Bashing will get us nowhere, but maybe if everyone gave an idea on how the movie could’ve been better, then maybe writers can learn from their mistakes and little by little we can start writing better scripts, and ultimately, make better movies. I still have faith in Philippine cinema.. People like Erik Matti are really beginning to transcend the industry standards. With education I think we can all learn to follow suit.

  10. super agree ako dito…mejo boring movie- sa finale nga tumayo na ko ahead of others to brush my teeth napadami kain ko ng nachos due to lack of something to do to past time.
    too rushed nga movie so may hang-o pa tau ng last movie nila together.
    walang bago, super babaw wala na ka sense sense..sayang ganda pa naman ni idol lisa

  11. I must say it’s an okay film. I agree with you… but i myself can relate to this film. it’s not about those lines and sweet scenes and “unconvincing” situations, it’s about all about choosing… and it is what drives me to still continue watching after an hour and a 50 minute story. Credits excluded.

  12. Your comments are hilarious. C’mon, its just a movie review. If you don’t like this movie review, why not make your own? 😁
