There’s no denying the fact that Filipinos LOOOOOOVE movies. Whether it’s local or international, the big screen has a soft spot in our hearts.
A lot of Filipino movies are close to home. Local movies talk about many things, but the most common: love, friendship, and family among others.
Which is why it’s not really a surprise that a lot of us can relate to some iconic lines from our fave movies and (don’t deny it) used them in real life.
