REEL DEAL: Sosy Problems REVIEW (MMFF Special)

For the MMFF, I am interested with something unique for the season and Sosy Problems was one of them. They might be mistakenly compared to another MMFF movie Desperadas which is also a band of girls.  But these girls are the super duper upper class ones with each having their own issues despite their wealth and social status.

The movie stars Heart Evangelista, Solenn Heussaff, Bianca King and Rhian Ramos as the wealthy and "sosyal" ladies. Also in the cast are Cherie Gil, Agot Isidro, Mylene Dizon, Aljur Abrenica, Alden Richards, Mikael Daez, Tim Yap, and Ruffa Gutierrez.

Though it may show their rich and lavish lifestyle, it shows an exaggerated yet entertaining execution of their ignorance and struggles despite having everything. With the people around them also causing their dilemmas, their world gets crazier and crazier.

It features many life parodies of the rich and powerful. Like the instant Millionaires, Accused Politicians, Business Tycoons, and Beauty Rivalry. There is also a touch of ordinary people which balances the social struggles and at some point reminded me of very rich kids shown in reality shows and how they breakdown. It caters to both sexes, like for the girls is the ultimate "kikay barkada, BFF Forever!" one would want to have, and for the men, the beautiful and sexy ladies who charms everyone without going all out. I think Donya Angelica Santibanez will like the movie as she is also the "Sosy" Meme!

Deliberation time kids!

Technical Effects: 3 out of 5 stars (GMA Films have great cinematography and has been consistent, but also minor booboos like abrupt cuts.)
Acting and Actors: 4 out of 5 stars  (The girls so far did a good job with presenting a different persona compared to their last movies and for this one I would pick Bianca King as best "sosy girl" but Solenn Heussaff is the hottest! For the other cast, best 3 would be: Cherie Gil, Mylene Dizon, and Ruffa Gutierrez.
DVD worthiness: 3 out of 5 stars (hope it includes Polo Club Membership!)
Music and Soundtracks:  4 out for 5 stars (The opening song was good, the credits song was ok, and the overall music was good but not overwhelming)
Pros: Parodies, Character stories, Cinematography, Casting, Location, Fashion Design, Props (Yes, that includes the helicopter!) 
Cons: Product placements, abrupt cuts in scenes, Plot, Tim Yap
Overall Rating: 3.9 out of 5 stars (It went beyond my expectations, Great cast and cinematography, and compared to the other GMA Films released excluding Tiktik, has learned to do better. Well, always do better, if not do the best)
