Remember that popular song, "this guy's in love with you pare," where the singer is in love with his best friend who he treats like one of the guys. Well, that's how I remember interpreting that song.
For a brief summary of This Guy's in Love with you Mare:
We have three main characters, Mike, Lester and Gemma. Lester is the rich gay who has a relationship with Mike for 3 years. After 3 years, Mike breaks up with Lester. It turns out that for a year already, Mike has been seeing Gemma and wants to propose to her already.
Lester, heartbroken, devises an evil plot to make Gemma fall in love with him and cause her and Mike to break up. He pretends to be a guy and begins to court Gemma.
Gemma, the unsuspecting lady, begins to develop a tendre for Lester though she still loves Mike. But in the end, all plots are revealed. So who gets to be with whom?
Though it's pretty easy to understand the plot, what made the movie worth watching is how they deliver. Gemma (played by Toni Gonzaga) and Mike (Luis Manzano) were too saccharine when they were acting as a couple but I guess this is to amp up the comedy effect of the movie.
I didn't laugh as much as I expected to...maybe because I saw the trailers a lot on TV. But it was a fun and enjoyable movie. It had a plot, it was a comedy and in the end it teaches us that if you did something wrong, you have to learn how to say sorry.
On a side note, my sister and I were trying to figure out the title. Who is the Guy? And who is the Mare in the title of the movie, This Guy's in Love with You Mare?
Is it Luis for Gemma? Luis for Lester? Or Lester for Gemma?
