One of the movies that I'm really excited about is the "My Househusband, Ikaw Na!". It is something that is very entertaining and it promises to deliver a quality family-friendly movie this Christmas.
Last December 17, I attended the Bloggers conference of Metro Manila Film Feast entry of OctoArts Films, My Househusband Ikaw Na! in Guilly’s Bar in Tomas Morato. The event was hosted by one of my favorite fashion bloggers, Melai Entuna of Bloggers United & Style and Soul, and the juiciest host of Juicy!, Shalala. That said, I've been lucky enough to meet and greet the cast and lead of the movie; Roco Naccino, Ellen Adarna, Eugene Domingo, Judy Ann Santos and for his first title role, Ryan Agoncillo.
"My Househusband: Ikaw Na!" is an official entry by Octoarts Films to the Metro Manila Film Festival, “My Househusband: Ikaw Na!” opens in theaters nationwide this December 25, Christmas Day as part of the 2011 MMFF.
The press conference was so much fun and it's actually one of the best events I've attended because my favorite comedienne, Miss Eugene Domingo, was there. And aside from winning awards for five years in a row, she's really funny and I love all her punchlines, bloopers and whatnot! Hilarious! Really. Put her in any situation, ANY, and she'll surely bring out the 'fun'. She's an epitome of a great actress/comedienne. A seriously talented and engaging one. She also stars at the Shake, Rattle and Roll 13 which is also an entry for 2011 MMFF, so she was torn between two floats.
"Naniniwala ako sa kasabihang “the more entries you sent, the more chances of winning” - Eugene Domingo Uhmm kaya naman. Ikaw na! You already! :D
In “My Househusband: Ikaw Na!” Eugene plays Aida, a mistress who happens to be Rod and Mia’s neighbor. With Mia always away, Rod and Aida develop a friendship that even has the Missus jealous at one point. Although Eugene has done so many movies this year, she grabbed the opportunity to be cast in “My Househusband: Ikaw Na!” in order to work anew with Ryan, Judy Ann and Direk Joey, and to portray a role that challenges her.
“I’ve never played a mistress before nor best friend to a straight guy. Even in real life, I have lots of girl and gay friends but very few straight guys so I am tackling my role here from a fresh point of view,” said she, who’s gusto in working on “My Househusband: Ikaw Na!” surely brought out the best in her yet again.
Judy Ann, who, in the movie, plays Mia, a mother and wife who is the sole breadwinner of her family, is not touted young superstar for nothing. She has been in showbiz for more than 20 years now and has done about 70 movies, many of which have won awards for her from many prestigious award giving bodies.
As for me, I'm such a HUGE fan of Juday eversince she started playing as Mara in Mara Clara. She is indeed the Queen of Pinoy Soap Opera and one my favorite local actresses. And we also have the same birthdate.. LOL Anong connect?! Hahaha Basta lang, for me, she's the epitome of beauty, class, and a brilliant actress. Peg ko din sya, just like Miss Eugene Domingo who also said that peg nya din si Juday! So there... Keri! Pwedeng same kami.
And of course, let's not forget the main man, the perfect househusband himself, Mr. Ryan Agoncillo, who does all the tidying, cooking and cleaning in the house while his wife works to support him. Ryan was quite flattered when Eugene told everyone how impressed she was with Ryan's performance. Thus, making it a movie to beat this year.
Sabi nga ni Ryan, this is a really good movie to watch out for 'cause No Other Woman lang ang peg ng movie na to. Juday as Christine, Eugene as Anne and of course, Ryan as Derek. Why not?? Bet! LOL This movie teaches us that there's nothing wrong about being a househusband because people today have changed their ideas about what makes a good husband or father. It doesn't make him any less of a man just because his wife works for their family. Also, it doesn't matter if your hubby is a full-time househusband as long as you work as a team and you're both happy. A happy family life is still the most important thing, not what other people think or other people's opinions. Screw society, the traditionalists, and the "norm". Just make sure you're both happy and happily married at that, because marriage does not guarantee a happy ending, just an ending. And both husband and wife should work real hard to add or insert "happy" before the ending. Everyday is an opportunity for us to make a new happy ending. So make the best out of your life today and create your own ending.
Love. Family. Happiness. That's all that really matters.
