After Four Sisters and a Wedding and Tuhog, Star Cinema is again sharing another movie offering for its 20th Anniversary with BAKIT HINDI KA CRUSH  NG CRUSH MO? starring Kim Chiu and Xian Lim. Whew! that's a pretty long title compared to four sisters... and probably the longest title for a film this year. But what fascinates me is Star Cinema again bringing life to books with their movies.

Based on the book of the same title by Ramon Bautista, this movie brings to life the crazy things we do for love and our crushes. Its seems to be crush or be crushed. Also its also a new look for Kim who had big puffy curls for this movie. Of course Ramon Bautista will also have a special participation in the movie. Though I do love Kim having a new image here, would there be also something new with Xian too? 

BAKIT HINDI KA CRUSH NG CRUSH MO will beshowing July 31, 2013!
