Goofs

In the scene where John Lloyd gives Bea Alonzo a ride home, it is fairly obvious that the car is mounted on some kind of moving platform. The movement of John's hands on the wheel aren't in synch with the turns that the car is making. See more »

This movie just kept on dragging out...
4 August 2013 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

"One More Chance" is a chick flick, no doubt about. As a guy watching this, you just sit there and get annoyed, especially because the movie is about 2 hours long and tastes literally forever to get nowhere.

The storyline can be summarized with nine words: lovers break up, lovers hurts, lovers get back together.

Popoy (played by John Lloyd Cruz) is engaged to be married to Basha (played by Bea Alonzo). But Basha is being suffocated in the relationship and calls it off, needing time to be alone. Separated, they have to find their own legs in a world without one another.

The storyline is straight forward for a movie of this genre. There is nothing new to be seen here really. And as such, then the movie doesn't really impress. However, I am sure that you will eat the storyline right up if you are a woman.

I will say that Bea Alonzo did a good job with her role, as did John Lloyd Cruz, but you sit there and get really annoyed with his character, especially as he is so self-centered, narrow-minded and turns into a spiteful stalker of sorts. It is not the actor's fault, it is simply the character in the story that was a sissy joke.

This movie did have some good points and moments here and there, but ultimately, it was a struggle to get through the nearly two hours the movie dragged on for.

This is a sappy love story for a woman audience. Guys and gents, you might want to find something else to put on. Definitely not one of Philippines cinema finest moments.
