Four Sisters And A Wedding: This year’s Iyak-Tawa movie
By Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio
Published: July 14, 2013
Four Sisters and A Wedding” is Star Cinema’s kick off film for its 20th year in the Philippine Movie Industry. That means it has already been two decades of experiencing not only blockbusters, but also Grade A projects from a company that continues to make films of both entertainment and quality.
This movie alone is a testament to how Star Cinema is just so good in marrying both creative spectacle and technical excellence. No wonder, moviegoers were tweeting left and right about how the movie has made them laugh and cry and could not stop raving about it. It was actually a mix of all the right things, if you ask me. Elements so ingeniously woven together, helped in painting the picture of the typical Pinoy family going through the motions of this day and age.
The Reality of Global Homes
The beginning of the film alone establishes the tone and setting: One lives in Spain, and the other in España, Manila; one in The Big Apple, and the other in New York, Cubao. While many films focus on the OFWs' predicament, this one zooms out and lays bare the challenges of keeping a home full of “transnationals.” Indeed, so many things are lost in translation and tension builds when living in different time zones begin to threaten the safety and refuge that was once found in the family.
Although trailers show a rather light and funny movie, it can’t help but turn serious when incorporating the reality of globalization and its implications to the traditional Pinoy family. Surely, this plot strikes a chord in our hearts; whose houses and lives are supported by these modern-day heroes, yet sadly risking the possibility of tearing the very home apart.
A Fine Generation of Actors
An all-star cast with names like Bea Alonzo, Toni Gonzaga, Angel Locsin and Shaina Magdayao billed for the lead parts alone, the movie is surely expected to make money. However, what really surprised many of us is not so much the star power as do the promise and competence demonstrated by this generation actors. All of them were excellent in a way I have not seen since the time and caliber of Vilma Santos, Nora Aunor, and Judy Ann Santos. Whether delivering punch lines or conveying a range of emotions through their eyes, impeccable timing and prowess come to mind. I must say that Star Cinema harnessed well and good for its 20th anniversary movie.
The Pinoy Iyak-Tawa Sentiment and Sensibility
Perhaps symptomatic of a third world condition, we Pinoys like to make and watch films that make us laugh one moment, and cry in the next. (The last time I simultaneously bawled and laughed like this was when I saw the Bollywood film “3 Idiots.”) Or maybe we simply produce that which reminds us most about who we are. That is, a people with a penchant for wits and puns, as humor is too precious to lose and too helpful at times of struggling against the giants of our lives.
As a true blue Pinoy I say, watch it. For resilience resounds in the whole film, not only as a hard-pressed people, but truly as Pinoys who unfailingly bounce back in the hope of relationships, forgiveness, family ties, and unconditional love.

BEA BEST ACTRESS CONTENDER
WE finally saw Four Sisters and a Wedding and we are glad we did. The long monologue of Bea Alonzo when she poured her kept sentiments towards her sisters should make Bea a very strong contender for the Best Actress category whether Urian, Pasado, Peoples Choice or whatever award giving body pa ito next year. And mind you, what she did is not elevator acting. With that scene ay sulit na ang ibinayad ninyo sa panonood.
kakatawa si ethel, sinunod si kris aquino.haha
Solb sa ‘Four Sisters’
ni Yanni Fernan
Rebyu: Four Sisters and a Wedding
Dinirehe ni Cathy Garcia-Molina
Rated PG, ang Four Sisters and a Wedding na pinangungunahan nina Angel Locsin, Bea Alonso, Toni Gonzaga, Shaina Magdayao at Enchong Dee, sa direksiyon ni Cathy Garcia-Molina ay kapuri-puri, katangi-tangi, at kasiya-siya sa mahusay na pagkombina ng comedy at drama para ihatid sa mga manonood ang kaugaliang Pilipino tungkol sa pamilya, pagkakapatid,at pagkakasintahan.
Marami na ring pelikula ang pumaksa sa pamilyang Pilipino, partiuklar ang sibling rivalry, ngunit kakaiba ang pelikulang ito sa matalinong paglalahad ng mga sigalot sa loob ng pamilya, na liban sa nakakaaliw ay nakakapagpatulo rin naman ng luha ng maraming manonood.
Malaking tulong rito ang mahusay na pag-arte ng mga bituin, ang konsistent at makulay na script ni Vanessa Valdez (mula sa orihinal na sinulat ni Jose Javier Reyes), ang catchy at contemporary dialogue, ang mabilis at madulas na editing, at siyempre pa, ang mahusay na direksiyon. Para na nga rin itong maipapantay, kung di man hihigit pa, sa mga patok na Hollywood movies na “feel good.” Kung ganito kahuhusay ang kalidad ng mga pelikulang Pilipino, walang dahilan para hindi ito tangkilikin ng mga manonood, na patunay kung bakit sa unang araw pa lang ay pinilahan na ito at tumabo sa takilya. At hindi lamang dahil sa name stars, kundi sa kabuuang kagandahan ng pelikula mismo.
Magandang ginamit na behikulo ang nalalapit na kasal ng bunsong kapatid (Enchong Dee) para maidaos ang reunion ng mga magkakapatid, at sa ultimo’y malutas ang mga tago at lantad na iringan sa isa’t isa; gayundin para maipaliwanag ang damdamin ng isang ina sa kanyang mga anak – sila man ay nagtagumpay, nabigo, naging malakas o mahina. Bawat karakter na ipinakita ay makaka-relate sa karaniwang manoood sapagkat totoong nangyayari sa karaniwan o lahat ng pamilya. Para bang ang mga eksena ay eksena na rin ng buhay ng mga manonood kaya humahagalpak sila sa tawa o lumuluha nang tahimik sa dilim ng sinehan.
Pinakamahusay ang characterization ni Bea Alonso bilang “Bobbie” na naging matagumpay sa Amerika ngunit may matagal na palang pait sa dibdib dahil sa “inagaw” ng kapatid na si “Alex” (Angel Locsin) ang kanyang kasintahan. Gayundin may tampo siya sa kanyang ina sa akalang ang ina’y may paboritong mga anak at hindi siya nabibilang dun. Pinakatampok na eksena niya ang isang mahabang monologue kung saan ibinuhos niya ang lahat ng nararamdaman, ngunti walang halong paninisi sa ina.
Sumunod na nagpakitang-gilas si Toni Gonzaga bilang “Teddie” (short for Teodora) na matagal nang itinago sa pamilya na siya’y naging waitress at maid sa Spain at tanggal na pala bilang titser dahil sa krisis sa ekonomiya na dinanas ng bansang pinuntahan. Karaniwang ikinahihiya ng middle class ang pagbagsak ng kanilang status o de-skilling sa oras na maging OFW at pinagtatakpan ang hiyang ito sa patuloy na pagpapanggap, tulad ng nangyari kay Teddie.
Ibang-ibang Angel Locsin naman ang ipinakita sa papel na “Alex” at nadala niya nang mahusay ang karakter na black sheep o pasaway. Ang confrontation scenes nila ni Bea Alonso ang maituturing na isa sa highlights ng pelikula sapagkat sila ang nagdala ng pinakamatitinding tensiyon sa pamilya, at lahat ay naghihintay kung kelan magsasabong o sasabog ang dalawa.
Mahusay ring nagampanan ni Shaina Magdayao bilang “Gabbie” ang papel ng kapatid na matandang dalaga na naiwan sa pag-aalaga sa ina at sa bunsong kapatid, habang ang ibang kapatid ay lumabas na sa poder ng ina sa iba’t ibang kadahilanan. Tampok siya sa opening scenes at malakas ang dating, ngunit hindi na nga lang napalawig ang kanyang papel at hindi na nabanggit bakit nanatili siyang dalaga gayong maganda at propesyunal naman. Pero bandang huli’y kinilala ang naging papel at sakripisyo niya sa pamilya.
May ilang character na miscast nga lamang. Halimbawa, hindi masyadong nabigyan ng buhay ni Angeline Quinto ang papel bilang “Princess” at siya sanang pakakasalan ni Enchong Dee . Walang lumabas na ibang personalidad sa kanyang portrayal liban sa sarili na niya. Samantala, lalong gumuhit ang papel ni Carmi Martin bilang kanyang ina at bumagay sa kanya ang papel ng isang socialite na eksaherado, matapobre at mayabang, pero gawdy o walang taste. Markado rin ang papel ng artistang tumayo bllang nagpapanggap na boyfriend (“Frodo”) ni Toni Gonzaga at sa kahusayan sa pag-arte ay nakakaagaw ng eksena.
Hindi panghihinayangan ang pera at panahon ng mga manonood sa ganitong pelikula. Lamang katulad ng mga pelikula ng Star Cinema, ito rin ay hindi na kumawala sa temang magkamatayan man ay dapat buo pa rin ang pamilya (kaya nga ginagasgas ang salitang “kapamilya”), na para bang ang mga sigalot sa loob ng pamilya ay mga internal na isyu lamang na mareresolba ng pagmamahalan at hindi mawawasak ng mga krisis sa lipunan.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT FOUR SISTERS AND A WEDDING?
THE KICK-OFF PROJECT OF STAR CINEMA ON ITS 20TH ANNIVERSARY DEFINITELY KICKED THE HEARTS OF PINOY FAMILIES.
With Star Cinema being the biggest Film Company in the Philippines that also holds the highest grossing movies of today, it is without a doubt that their opening salvo for their 20th Anniversary --- Four Sisters and A Wedding is one movie you must not miss.
The movie started when Reb-reb, the youngest of the Salazar siblings announced that he is getting married. Being the baby of the family, this alarmed all his sisters. They all went home as per Cj's request because the wedding will happen in two weeks.
The "pamamanhikan" with the Ba-yags happened the next day and this prompted the sisters to plan for their baby brother's rescue.
These events led them into realizing each other's shortcomings, flaws and misunderstandings. They realized that they have grown apart and that they have issues within the family all hidden in the closet for so many years.
THE SALAZAR SIBLINGS.
THEODORA GRACE "Teddie" SALAZAR
Tony Gonzaga's role is somewhat tailored fit for her. Most of the first-born, if not all can easily relate from struggles to insecurities up to the issues that would fall on her lap as the first Ate of the Salazars. All first born feel they are to take responsibility for their siblings.
I am a first born and it struck me when she said the lines "KUNG GANUN, WAG NYA TAYO ITRATONG EMPLEYADO, AKO PA DIN ANG PANGANAY DITO. " her sarcasm, her raw humor and how she handled the whole character is amazing.
Her breakdown is outstanding yet heart breaking. Kudos Toni! She's one of the reasons why your head will ache because of the fast switching of crying to laughing.
ROBERTA OLIVIA "Bobbie" SALAZAR
Bea Alonzo for me is like the modern-day spelling of the DRAMA Genre. Tears will just fall in a snap. Her character taps your hidden pain. You will just say "ouch may ganun akong naramdaman noon".
Bobbie is the achiever among the siblings and the most hated because of her straight-forward and in-your-face brutal opinions. But its all true. We always have this evil sibling who just tells you the truth yet you hate them because the truth they are telling hurts you. Her breakdown is a must watch too. I guarrantee that this will bring you to tears. Well, aside from the tears that Toni will bring you unexpectedly.
ALEXANDRA CAMILLE "Alex" SALAZAR
Alex reminds me so much of myself. The love for the arts, always broke, with no direction at all (ok enough of the pity-party! Haha)
Angel Locsin surprisingly pulled a different kind of comic relief here. Funny at this scene and hurting in the next. In the story, Alex had an unfinished issue with Bobbie played by Bea Alonzo. Relating it again with pinoy families, issues of the heart within siblings are no longer new and unusual in today's setting. Their confrontation was whoah! They matched each other's grit. Galing!
As for some who felt like Alex has small exposure, I can say that her character also took a full circle from confrontation, patawaran scene and wrapping it up with Mocha / Chad / Salazar Siblings. Great balancing direk!!
GABRIELLA SOPHIA "Gabbie" SALAZAR
Shaina Magdayao has this way of making a character count without much to say. Glad she was picked as Gabbie.
Gabbie's struggle is not the lovelife part. In the first part of the story, their Mom was persuading her to get Masters abroad. I remember Ms. Coney's lines "you always use us as an excuse". Each parent know the capacity of their child if they can do more and achieve more. That was the conflict between Gabbie and their Mama. She feels responsible all the time.
In current settings there will always be a sibling who will cook for all, do chores for all and are left to take care of the aging parents. That is the importance of Gabbie's character. The latter part of the movie was really touching and it made me very thankful of my old maid aunts who sacrificed love and spent their future with us, taking care of the family.
Gabbie is not a small role at all.
CARLOS JOSE "Cj" aka "Reb-reb" SALAZAR
If you are to pick a kapamilya actor who perfectly fits Cj's character --- charming, loveable, baby brother-type, innocent, who can match the acting levels of the biggest kapamilya actresses, charming (oh I can't stop , disarming (oh enough! Too biased) who would it be?
Enchong Dee is dee man perfect for the role. Period. His Man-boy appeal makes you want to side with the sisters in stopping the wedding and then feeling embarrassed for what you did on the next. His character made his sisters realize that their baby brother is no longer a baby.
This movie made me feel like he's my brother too young but matured in thinking. His confrontation scene with the sisters is a revelation. Imagine you need to level your acting with Toni, Bea, Shaina and Angel with intense grit and anger! He passed the scene with flying colors. Enchong, you make me proud
And if in any case some of you didn't know the origin of his nickname Reb-reb, its from Rebisco subtly cute
Ms. Connie Reyes nailed the matriarch role. Her breakdown made me cry even more.
Janus has always been my favorite character actor may it be comedy or drama. He delivers very well. He's cute for Toni.
Who wouldn't want Sam Milby as a boyfriend? He's a perfect match for Bea here. His American accent is oh so sexy.
This cutie is like an ingredient wherein a scene won't finish without some of the lines that would come from her. So cute.
In some extended families we share secrets with our cousins, plan something with our household which no one from the oldies must know. I felt these with Toti Marie.
Being the soundboard of the Salazar matriarch, manang speaks the words that their Mom can't. She is the silent witness of the family in all of its happenings.
BUBOY / ANGELINE QUINTO / CARMI MARTIN
The Ba-yags added full color in the story. Scenes that include them doesn't just go unnoticed.
SCENES TO WATCH OUT FOR
Actually, I love almost all the scenes but you must not miss the following:
THE SANDWICH CLUB
The start of the movie. Cute kiddos portraying the salazar sisters.
PAMAMANHIKAN - Carmi Martin's entrance and actually everything about Carmi is to watch out for. She still remains to be the sexiest and funniest comedian for me from the 80s until now.
CJ's STAG PARTY
I find this cute. Enchong, Sam and Janus are sooo cute here.
THE BOBBIE SONG
It comes as a surprise but i love the scene and the way it was revealed.
CJ vs FOUR SISTERS
So intense! You will have Cj's sympathy after and Alex will make you laugh after that confrontation scene.
THE CHARADES with BA-YAGS & SALAZARS
The subtle "parinigan" durin the game is so funny. This scene leads to the unstoppable rollercoaster ride of emotions that will leave you crying for minutes! Ready your tissues.
THE SALAZAR RESBAK
Want to know how amazona Alex can be? Watch out for this!
This came as a surprise. Hold on to that twist.
Its Direk Cathy's trademark already. Those bloopers that will make you sit, up to the last credit.
I have long been a fan of Ms. Vanessa Valdez. Her works really show the reality may it be painful or funny. The characters and the story relatable for different people, for different familes, people in all walks of life. From YOU ARE THE ONE, ONE MORE CHANCE, SUDDENLY ITS MAGIC and THE MISTRESS, I love it!
Direk Cathy has always been making films that struck me straight to the heart, making me laugh and cry at the same time. I love YOU ARE THE ONE, MY ONLY YOU and the JLC-SARAH TRILOGY, MY AMNESIA GIRL, UNOFFICIALLY YOURS and the list goes on and now this. Her tandem with Ms. Vanessa Valdez is always a box office hit, think of ONE MORE CHANCE I wish I could work with you in the future!
50 YEARS OF REBISCO
Star Cinema's number one sponsor for this film is Rebisco -- also celebrating its 50 years of love and sharing with the Filipino family.
I love Rebisco and Star Cinema. The movie started with a unique scene with Rebisco branding yet not in-your-face advertising. The product blended well in the story. Not even mentioned but you feel its presence have carried their family in years. Hope it would be the same for future sponsors as well
THE SALAZARS ON TWITTER
Way before the movie was shown, i felt a certain connection between the characters just by reading their tweets. Thank you to the writers and to the think-tanks behind these twitter accounts.
AD & PROMO
Of course kudos to Sir Roxy Liquigan and Sir Mico del Rosario for the greater push on this movie. I know that with no promo this movie will still earn millions because of the big cast but their efforts made this movie earn millions in just days. Great team!
In the end, this movie teaches us that if there are people who can love us unconditionally, it would be our own family. Forget about being perfect, forget about bein the coolest or even the brightest and the richest. Our family will love us perfectly for who we are and who we may become. They are forever behind you in everything you do. They are always there waiting for you to come back home with open arms, ready to give you the warmest and the tightest hug to last a lifetime.
After the long wait, napanood ko na ang FSAAW sa TFC...I agree with everyone laugh trip and iyakan blues ang peg ng movie ....hoping for 2nd movie with the salazar family (combined prequel and sequel) or even a sitcom siguradong papatok if given a chance...
^ actually mas bet ko na tv series na lang sya para mas maraming maikutan feeling ko kasi bitin sa 2 hrs..

Back to Back, and Its All About Family
I had a great weekend. And its all about family.
I started on Thursday night, a welcome home pizza night for Baby Red :-) I'll make separate post to introduce you guys who is she. But for now let me just give you some reviews to films I watched.
Four Sisters and A Wedding
Ever since I saw the trailer of the movie I think two months ago, I know it will be another hit. The movie is the 20th Anniversary presentation of Star Cinema, and no wonder on its cast.
Honestly, I didn't expect that I can relate to the movie. Sa story ang dami nilang magkakapatid while ako isa lang ang kapatid ko. But when the "drama scene" na when Bea a.k.a Bea brought out the sentiments she have for the family yun na, crayola to the max. Honestly I have the same sentiments as Bobbie and I even brought it out to my parents as well. Yung feeling na kahit anong academic achievement na mareceived ko parang wala lang sa kanila, they will not take leave on their office para kumuha ng report card ko, sometimes among the top 10 ako lang ang walang parents na kumukuha, and one time nung naging dean's list ako I'd rather na hindi na lang sabihin sa kanila nalaman na lang nila the next semester na. I started to compare na bakit kapag yung brother ko kapag ipinatatawag sa guidance or principal's office nale-leave sila, bakit kapag ang report card nya failed pumupunta sila sa school. I heard from Coney Reyes the same words I heard from my mom before, they know that I can and I'm strong and responsible so ang kailangang mas alalayan is yung mas mahina. Mas lalong tumindi ang pagcry ko..hehehe
Insights and lessons I learned:
1. There's no perfect family.
2. Each siblings are different from each other, sabi nga kung 10 kayong magkakapatid may 10 traits na iba't iba rin. There will be rivalry, competition, tampuhan but the end of the day family pa rin. They are your number supporters, they are your safety net when you fall. People in our lives will come and go but believe me family will always stay with you no matter what.
3. Don't judge people. Sometimes we easily judging people without even notice na naiinggit na pala tayo. Sometimes kapag may mga tao sa paligid natin na nakakaanggat sa atin instead na matuwa tayo for them, pilit at pilit tayong hahanap ng mali on them hanggang ipahamak na tayo ng doubt natin sa kanila.
4. Forgive, accept, love and respect each other. God chose each other to be a part of our family, hindi dahil black sheep or tambay or hindi achiever is wala ng kwenta. Each member of the family has its own role for each other, to mold and to be the best of each other.
5. Favoritism among children really affects. I am not a parent yet but I guess its hard sometimes for parents not to have favorite especially if the family is big. But remember Mommy and Daddy having favorite may lead to have disunity, jealousy and envy within the family. So parents must really draw close to God, ask wisdom on how to raise their children in Godly way. Each person is unique as each sibling is different from each other they have their own strength and weakness and they are special in their own way.
6. Working hard for family is really all worth it. I guess that's one the best trait of Filipinos being a family oriented and our strong family ties. Sometimes we experiencing to sacrifice even our own dreams and happiness for our family to have their own. But no matter how difficult we've been through, at the end its all paid off by a sweet gestures and assurance that they are happy.
I suggest to you to watch it, it will not only make you laugh and cry but its really a story a meaningful story. A story of forgiveness and acceptance, relationships, family ties and unconditional love.
Ang pagtanggap sa sarili. (Four Sisters And A Wedding – Movie Review)
POSTED ON JULY 21, 2013 BY INFLUENTIAL DOGMA
Madrid, John Paul M.
Colegio de San Juan de Letran – Intramuros
Ang Four Sisters And A Wedding ay handog sa atin ng Star Cinema na isang pang-pamilya o pang-magkakapatid na pelikula. Ito ay tungkol sa Salazar Siblings na muling nagsama-sama makaraan ng ilang taon para sa kasal ng kanilang bunsong kapatid. Hindi lang sila umuwi para masaksihan ito, ngunit para pigilan na rin. Ang pelikula ay hindi lamang nakasentro sa kasal ni CJ, ang bunsong kapatid, ngunit ipinakita rin dito ang mga narating ng magkakapatid. Ang magkakapatid ay sina; Teddie, ang panganay, na OFW sa Spain; Bobbie, naging tagumpay sa kanyang piniling propesyon sa New York; Alex, isang independent Film assistant director; Gabbie, isang guro na nakatira kasama ang kanilang ina; at CJ na kanina’y nabanggit na. Hindi man naging perpekto at masagana ang lahat, pero isa pa rin ang naging dahilan para magkasama-sama at magkasundo sila… ito’y dahil sila ay magkakapatid, sila ay pamilya.
Ang pelikula ay naging matagumpay dahil sa masuring pagpaplano at maayos na organisasyon. Unahin na natin ang casting, hindi maikakailang nakuha nila ang ilan sa mga batikang aktor na nagampanang maayos at nabigyang buhay ang mga pagkatao ng mga karakter. Kasama na rin ang mga make-up artists at stylists na tumulong para lalong mabagay ang mga aktor sa kanilang karakter. Kabilang na rito ang mga maayos at magaling na trabaho ng mga tao sa likod ng pelikula na nag-ayos ng set para mas mabigyang ideya ang manunuod sa kung anong estado ng buhay ang mayroon ang isang karakter, at props para mabigyang ideya ang mga tao sa kung anong posibleng mangyari. Sa mga taong responsable para sa editing na nagbigay ayos sa pagkakasunod-sunod, framing at kung ano-ano pang kailangang i-edit, at sa mga taong responsable sa mga musika o tunog na ginamit sa pelikula para mabigyang kasukdulan ang emosyon sa bawat pangyayari. At lalo na sa mga manunulat na gumamit ng wika na maiintindihan at makakapukaw ng atensyon ng mga manunuod kung saan sila makaka-relate. At hindi rin natin puwedeng makalimutan ang direktor na naging masipag at matalino sa bawat desisyon para sa pelikulang ito. Hindi natin maikakaila ang tagumpay na nakamit ng pelikula dahil sa mga tao sa harap at likod ng camera.
Naging maganda at magaling ang unang handog na pelikula ng Star Cinema para sa kanilang ika-dalawampung anibersaryo. Ito’y napapanahon nga para sa atin upang mas matanggap at mabigyang-pansin natin ang pagmamahal ng pamilya natin. Pero bukod doon, mas matatanggap natin ang sarili natin dahil maaari nating makita ang pagkatao natin sa isa sa mga karakter sa pelikula. At mula doon ay makikita natin na hindi ka man ang pinakamagaling, pinakamabait, pinakamatalino, o pinakamatagumpay, may pamilya ka pa rin na magmamahal sa ‘yo at ang tingin sa iyo’y ikaw ang pinakamagaling/mabait/matalino/matagumpay na taong kilala nila. At ang mas importante nga sa lahat ay ang pagkilala mo sa sarili mo, sa mga kakayahan at kahinaan mo, at pagtanggap dito.
Sana may prequel or sequel!
Nakakabitin ang movie na eto.
