We all awe at Popoy for being able to articulate what most men can not and Basha for believing in love more than we could. I joined media friends and bloggers attending one of the most anticipated sequel of Star Cinema, A Second Chance. With Janus Del Prado, Ahron Villena, Bea Saw, Bea Alonzo, John Lloyd Cruz and Direk Cathy Garcia Molina, "A Second Chance" Grand Press Conference made all of us reminisce the making and resurrection of the most quoted romantic film in the country (One More Chance) yesterday at the Dolphy Theater.
When asked what made the One More Chance successful in creating another genre of romance onscreen, Bea and John Lloyd both could not explain why Popoy and Basha became phenomenal. Direk Cathy even recalled the moments they just thought of putting the risk and giving their all to the movie and paid gratitude to the writers Vanessa Valdez and Carmi Raymundo. For so many of us who kept watching One More Chance, it became a conscious effort to memorize the lines of Popoy and Basha but for Popoy, Basha was "pabebe" and for Basha, Popoy was the cunning and sly lamb irresistible to forgive.
The two have kept teasing each other 8 years after the first movie. For John Lloyd, there are some scenes he can only do with Bea and for Bea, John Lloyd will always be one of the most admired actors of this generation. For 8 years how the couple had changed will be one the movie-goers will love. From the teasers which went viral blaming Meralco, Ms Vanessa Valdez told us after the event that there'll be more and those trivial reasons broke the two apart much like all of us. I broke up with my last ex over a broadband stick. I wonder who solved paying that Meralco bill they argued about. Let's all reflect on the could-haves and what-ifs watching A Second Chance on November 25 at all cinemas nationwide. Thank you also to dear showbiz friends Rey Pumaloy, Pilar Mateo, Dominic Rea, Leo Bukas and Roel Villacorta for that extra fun photo.
