(kr) wrote: Let us get it out of the way. Chris Martinez??s Here Comes the Bride is top-notch entertainment. Martinez was able to come up with everything most recent Filipino mainstream comedies lack: that no-nonsense singular objective of making people laugh. From the getgo to the post-credit extra scene, the film never stopped to be overtly pedantic or moralistic, a problem that most Filipino comedies have since there always seems to be this need to use cinema as replacement for Sunday school. For example, Wenn Deramas?? Ang Tanging Ina (The True Mother, 2003), and its sequel and many offshoots, are always derailed by its insistence on teaching a lesson; even Joyce Bernal??s Kimmy Dora (2009), also written by Martinez, is stalled by its apologetic dnouement that went too long and too serious. Never mind the forced logic to explain the illogic, the negligible business about solar eclipses and souls, the history and science behind the soul-swap, as authoritatively explained by television trivia-master Kim Atienza. Here Comes the Bride is deliriously funny nonsense all the way and it thankfully works.The gay man becomes a girl. The loveless godmother feels how it is to be loved. The amorous yet incapacitated grandfather relives the passion and the romance of his distant youth. The poor nanny turns into a millionaire. The innocent bride-to-be wallows in the realities of life??s misfortune. Martinez fills the screen with realized desires at the expense of the bride-to-be, emphasizing the frailty of the human soul in the face of happiness. In the midst of the film??s invaluable wit and humor that frequently pumps in rhythm with the Latin beats of the apt lively music score, the film??s characters, ideally uncomplicated and stereotypical, are allowed to live their desires realized, concretizing in easy-to-understand cinematic terms the pleasures of escape, of living a fantasy even if it is only momentarily. I am very happy to say that Here Comes the Bride is as current and relevant as it is entertaining and hysterical.The pacing??s a little off, several scenes taking too long to get to the point. But this an otherwise charming film. The characters are drawn broadly to begin with, but they all feature recognizable human traits that make them endearing anyway. These qualities become more pronounced as they spend time inhabiting their borrowed bodies. Clever reversals power the humor, the movie more than happy to subvert expectations when it can. They get a lot of mileage out of separating the most conventionally attractive couples, and giving time to more cinematically unusual pairings. There??s real strength in portraying a child as something other than precocious, and the film gains memorable moments in serving up comeuppance to the said child and his parents.The film still goes for plenty of easy laughs, but it??s smart enough not to linger on them. The movie plays them lightly, focusing instead on building a few recurring jokes. And somehow, through it all, a strong emotional core remains. For all the goofiness and body-swapping hijinks the movie employs, there??s real pathos to these characters, most of whom are wishing for lives other than their own. The real hook to this movie is that the characters manage to grown comfortable in their foreign skin, and there??s a real case to be made for letting them stay that way. It??s a strange and surprising conceit, and I wish the movie could??ve taken it even further. The most fully realized character in Here Comes the Bride is the love-starved gay beautician whose fortune of being transported to the body of the beautiful and sexy bride-to-be is the most dramatic out of the five. As expected, it is mostly played for laughs and Panganiban does a brilliant job in emulating the fabulous larger-than-life gestures of Lapuz. After all, the very idea of a gay man suddenly and surprisingly getting everything he ever wanted, from the body parts he can only have in his wildest dreams to the straight men who he can only love and lust for from a safe distance, is in itself a hoot. The hilarity of the absurd situation, at that scene where the bride-to-be in the body of her godmother insists that the gay beautician return her body, unravels into a well-pronounced statement of gay angst and sentiment as he emotionally shouts ??Hindi ninyo maiintindihan dahil hindi kayo bakla! (You will never understand because you are not gay!). At that moment, the film, notwithstanding the fact that it never stopped being funny, reflected a current fundamental truth, something that not even a mainstream film as self-promotedly queer as Olivia Lamasan??s In My Life (2009) can have the guts to state as plainly and matter-of-factly as that.I think that Here Comes the Bride is one of the best comedies I??ve seen all year. It might be a little too long, and a little oddly paced. There might??ve been more to say about the characters wanting to stay in their new bodies. But when it comes right down to it, the film is funny and charming, and a lot brighter than most comedies we get these days. It would??ve been enough that the film gives talented actors something to do other than mug for the camera and fall over repeatedly. But the film also manages a measure of dramatic resonance among all the hijinks. That??s something really worth seeing.
