Boring, unfunny, shallow…
So I am not filipino, but my wife is from the Philippines. So when she seen the trailer for this movie we decided we would rent it when it came out to stream/rent. What a mistake. The only partially funny stuff is in the trailer. The rest of the movie is beyond boring and all over the place.
Most of the jokes feel forced and make you cringe. The humor is pretty shallow and really seems to make fun of filipino culture and paint it in a bad light rather then show how great filipino culture can be.
Everyone in the movie (even non-filipinos) seem to act like nasty idiots to everyone. It felt like the lead actor (who I read is a comedian) basically took his jokes and tried to make them into a movie. It just doesn’t work. This feels more like something you may see on TV instead. I can see why ticket sales were low.
While they movie had one amazing cameo, even this persons cameo felt forced and boring. I regret renting the movie for free. Couldn’t pay me to watch it again. To note it was so slow we stopped watching after 45 minutes. Again, if my filipino wife finds it boring… you know its bad.
I did check out the actors comedy online and I’d say his comedy is at least funny, where as this movie is not. Not to mention the movie has endless swearing in it. This whole movie is just an insult to filipino culture and makes everyone look shallow and nuts.
Not Funny Comedy
I saw Easter Sunday, starring Jo Koy-Anastasia, Virginia; Lydia Gaston-The Blacklist_tv, The Sopranos_tv; Eugene Cordero-The Good Place_tv, The Mule and Tia Carrere-A J and the Queen_tv, True Lies.
This is a not so funny comedy directed by Jay Chandrasekhar-Beerfest, Club Dread, Super Troopers-who also plays Jo’s manager. Jo is a stand up comic that is struggling to get a tv job and moves to Los Angeles. Lydia, his mother, wants him to come home for Easter dinner. The movie is based on Jo’s real life-being Filipino-and how there is always lots of drama and fighting going on. Eugene is his cousin and Tia is his aunt. Lou Diamond Phillips and Tiffany Haddish have small cameos. The message at the end is that family is important-they play Karaoke and all of a sudden, all is forgiven. Maybe you have to be Filipino to enjoy the humor but I thought that most of the jokes are just plain juvenile. There are a couple of bloopers shown just as the end credits start.
It’s rated PG-13 for language and has a running time of 1 hour & 36 minutes.
It’s not one that I would buy on DVD or rent. If you want to see it I would wait until it comes to tv.
