REEL DEAL: Moron 5 And The Crying Lady REVIEW

Movies are meant to remove the stress from the viewers, and this is what Pinoy comedy does best. And Wenn De Ramas, who made the box office hit Praybeyt  Benjamin, does his specialty of slapstick and dialouge comedy with MORON 5 AND THE CRYING LADY

Moron 5 and The Crying Lady bring together half-witted longtime friends Albert (Luis Manzano), Isaac (Billy Crawford), Mozart "Mo" (DJ Durano), Michaelangelo "Mike" (Martin Escudero) and Aristotle "Aris" (Marvin Agustin) were used to living moronic yet pretty normal and hassle-free lives until successful careerwoman Becky Pamintuan (John "Sweet" Lapus) accused them of killing her father and ruin everything for them. The Moron 5 are more than sure of their innocence but the life of them, they cannot find a single satisfactory argument on how to prove it especially when their opponent would do everything to punish them for whim.

Spending three miserable years in prison trying different failed comedic attempts to get out, they finally figured a way to escape. They stalked Becky and try to understand why she is fighting so hard to have them imprisoned when it's clear as day that what happened three years ago was a nonsense frame-up.
