The Significant Other - Flirting At Its Best

Image
It is no surprise that the thrid party market is back in screens and it takes on the challenge to be better than the previous films with the same theme. This time, the combination of Erich Gonzales, Lovi Poe, and Tom Rodriguez are tested for their chemistry with The Significant Other.

Lovi here is more daring and alluring, Erich was surprisingly sensual and Tom goes beyond his charm and leveled up his drama skills. The love dilemma in this film makes it relatable and entertaining. Drama was spot on, witty lines were impressively savage, and there was sexiness all throughout.

They tend to veer away from the cliches and banked on what is the usual marriage problem which leads to infidelity. Although there are still elements that people still find similar to similar-themed films, they made sure that the entertainment value is kept at its peak whether it may be comedy, drama, an love scenes.
