Movie Review: Its a Boy Girl Thing
FIRST: Some information on the movie
I just watched this on Star Movies (I’m making this review MINUTES after the movie ended) tonight and I have to say, I am very touched as how the movie was done.
Here I was, thinking that this movie is just another Freaky Friday-like movie but boy, was I wrong. This is WAAAAAY better than FF IMO. It not only explores the different views of the opposite sex but also their insecurities, their dreams, and their troubles in an outside the house.
There are PLENTY of moments in the movie wherein I kinda made a grab for a pillow because of the excitement it brings xD Like when the male character (the woman is trapped inside) gets stuck in a room full of naked guys or the girl character (the guy is trapped) tries to sleep with this guy for revenge but ends up realizing it was gay! xD
Lots of laughs really, It started a bit slow and dull at first, but along the second 10 minutes of the film, it just grabbed my eyeballs from their sockets! haha
The fun starts when they try to emulate each other’s attitudes: girl tries to be a boy and boy tries to be a girl. REALLY awesome! Its like the battle of the sexes in a whole new way! This also delves in on what men would do if they had the chance to be in a woman’s body. Like go to the showers and see naked women and not get bitch slapped! xD
There are lots of memorable quotes for this movie, but I failed to search for the really good ones! The ones that made me like this movie since those quotes are really well written in a very romantic manner. And its supposed to be a love/comedy!
The OST for this movie is really good too. Very sweet for some and very “Parteh!” for others! 🙂
I guess people who are young often relates to these kind of movies easily. Well I liked it! haha, I guess I’m still young!
Here’s an interesting thing I found while googling info about this: Youtube Videos of the whole movie
You can just browse through the other parts from there.
PS: There are actually 2 posters for this movie, the one I have up there and the one where it makes you want to look CLOSER
PPS: This is one those movies wherein it makes you want to have a life JUST LIKE THEY DO in this one. You know, typical boy who knows nothing about the world except money and fame which suddenly gets a different view in life all thanks to a girl whom he hates and hates him back 🙂
FUN FUN MOVIE! 4 STARS OUT OF 5!
