Movie Review: The Break-Up Playlist

While I wouldn't go so far as to say that The Break-Up Playlist was as good as Begin Again, this Sarah Geronimo and Piolo Pascual starrer was A LOT better than I expected. Sure, the film was flawed - the script was weak, the product placements were shameful, and the ending seemed more like a sloppy afterthought - but there's something undeniably charming and fresh about the film. The story was quite simple, but with an interesting approach in that the music in it were mostly performance pieces. The refreshing edit made the narrative more compelling, the cinematography looked awesome, the soundtrack sounded great, and there's a sincerity in both lead characters - only dragged by the sluggish dialogues. Piolo Pascual and Sarah Geronimo were both painfully charismatic and while they lacked a certain degree of nuance in some of their scenes, I didn't mind. The Break-Up Playlist was a pleasant piece of entertainment. Not the best, but it had its moments. 7
