(SPOT.ph) The hype around Exes Baggage understandably still isn't over. Of course, you can't deny the palpable chemistry between actual exes Angelica Panganiban and Carlo Aquino. But who wouldn't be able to relate to a story about a couple falling in love and trying to get over their past relationships? And if you're looking for another hugot movie, then you'll want to catch To Love Some Buddy when it hits theaters on October 31. The movie, directed by Jason Paul Laxamana (100 Tula Para Kay Stella, The Day After Valentine's), is about two best friends who decide to finally start dating each other.
As all girls do, Faith (Maja Salvador) always runs to her best friend Julius (Zanjoe Marudo) every time she has a boy problem. Yup, even when he's busy (and getting busy) with another girl. Since they're so close, they inevitably get asked by other people if they're just best friends or if they're more than that. "Mag. Best. Friends. Lang. Kami!" Julius frustratingly explains to his friends. "She gets me. Siya lang nakakasakay sa mga trip ko." Then suddenly, he starts seeing Faith in a different way and tries to convince her to start dating. "Pa'no kung hindi mag-work?" Faith asks. "Try lang natin," Julius answers.
It's the first time Salvador and Marudo have been paired with each other for a movie. But Pinoy rom-com fans would know this isn't the frist time Salvador plays someone who wants to date her best friend—remember Carson from I'm Drunk, I Love You? Fans will just have to watch To Love Some Buddy to see if things work out for her this time around.
To Love Some Buddy premieres on October 31.
