Movie Review: My Rebound Girl

Image courtesy of www.movies.pinoyph.net

Alex Gonzaga, Joseph Marco
Director: Emmanuel dela Cruz
MTRCB Rating: PG
Released by: Regal Entertainment Inc.

The love story centers on Rocky’s (Alex) misfortune in her relationships - that of being a consistent rebound girl by her exes. She soon gets tired of her predicament and decides to set rules for herself so as not to be trapped again in such a situation.  

Rocky and her friends are setting up their coffee shop business and everyone takes pains in the nitty-gritty details to make it a close to perfect venture.Trying to find that perfect coffee blend takes a major turn in the story. 

In comes Rich, a coffee farm grower who wants to salvage their family farm from being sold by his mother. He strikes a deal with Rocky’s group to be its coffee supplier and partner at the same time. 

Both Rocky and Rich have just been through their breakups from their respective exes and despite provocation, they try to avoid falling for each other. However, it proves to be easier said than done, as they soon begin to show interest towards each other.

Deliberate or not, it is easy to note that Rocky’s character seems not far-fetched from Alex Gonzaga’s real image and persona. For the most part of the movie, Rocky keeps shouting and making faces, and shouting and making faces again - it’s a challenge to enjoy and be entertained by this movie. Save for the concluding part, there is hardly any scene that Alex’s character is sober. Indeed, there’s a big difference between being cute and being annoying.  

Compounding it even more is her bossy character towards her business partners. Rocky seems to have the last say in everything, from the coffee blend to the coffee shop’s paint and interior - everything has to conform to her taste. Now who wants a business partner like that?

My Rebound Girl as per its press release says the movie will inspire people to not give up on love so easily despite the odds. Rich and Rocky are supposed to have fallen for each other but it’s hardly felt as the movie fails to capture that ’romance ’. Making it worse is when his ex, Sophia wants him back and he immediately succumbs to her spell, totally forgetting his commitment to Rocky. What inspiration can be had from that?

The movie is a bore, in fact, most scenes are filled with lengthy and irrelevant scenarios that you struggle not to fall asleep while watching.

Expectedly, Marco’s well-defined abs got its exposure in the movie, but it can only go so far. It cannot salvage the character that is lacking in his performance. For one, he is ill-focused and so self –conscious. It takes more than the physical to get things right – and that’s a no brainer.

Had the movie been carefully well-thought-out, the viewers would have been treated to a fresh-faced and unconventional love team, a breather from the ones we are constantly fed and conditioned to like. Unfortunately, Joseph Marco and Alex Gonzaga just don’t have the chemistry to pull it off.

 If at all, the beautiful, refreshing shots at a coffee farm in Benguet prove to be the movie’s redemption.   

"My Rebound Girl " also stars Martin Escudero, Mitoy Yonting, Alora Sasam, Nathalie Hart, Pinky Amador, Racquel Villavicencio, Anna Vicente, Carl Guevara, Helga Krapf, Lawrence Yap. Now showing in cinemas

    3. So true. Annoying, OA and immature. Ewan ko nga kung ano ba talaga ang totoong talent nito. Pinipilit lang nila i-expose kasi ano? Kapatid ni celestine? Doesn't mean magkapatid sila pareho silang talented. I just wish alex would have the guts to find her niche and not just tag along her sister's success forever.

  7. Doesn't the network or movie company see thru this girl? She's annoying, overacting at nang aagaw ng eksena in Asap and has no future in the movie industry! She has no talent except overacting at gumalaw na parang kitikiti! While marco, i think he has to do more acting workshop.

    1. True that. One can see the instant reaction ng kasama niya when she makes "waley or bastos jokes" sa spiels nila.

  10. No change of character acting kasi sa actor/actress mismo. Yan ang kulang sa Pinoy mainstream movies.

    Kung ano sila in real life, yun din sa acting nila sa movies. With Alex pa na feeling GGSS, hindi bagay to make faces because her face ____________. Hay naku!

  11. tama lang yan na natuloy ang movie. para matauhan na silang hindi nya kaya magbida. nataon lang maganda ang story ng pure love nung comeback nya pero si yen ang napansin, di sya.

  21. I tried to appreciate the humor of Alex pero wala talaga eh. She annoying. Also, Joseph Marco TH yung paenglish english niya. Nothing wrong with using the language but please give some justice. Kung di kaya ang accent, wag ipilit. The same goes to many artists, wag feeling. Going back to Alex, i would be best na ilayo siya sa comedy para seryosohin naman siya ng viewers. Gawin siyang kontrabida.

  29. Ok sa akin ang SephLex tandem and I am a big fan of Alex Gonzaga, but this movie was a struggle to watch. May mali sa character build up for Rocky (her character is annoying na no wonder iniiwan sya ng mga nagiging bf nya). For some reason, nakulangan ako sa chemistry nila. Masyadong 'Alex' ang atake ni Alex sa role niya. Masyadong loud!

    On the other hand, I was thinking what if si Yen Santos of Pure Love ang Rocky? Mas may kilig siguro.

    Okay din naman mga angles ni Joseph Marco dito at sana binongga ang mommol nila ni Nathalie Hart hahaha

  30. Nanood kami. Same sentiments. May kulang sa script. Walang chemistry. Pilit. Tapos hindi na bu build up. Parang movie ng isang college student. Chicken feet si joseph Marco

  48. I must say fp is right. Joseph marco act like a stiff and also he is very curious if he could look of the screen on the tv. However alex gonzaga act is annoyed in the whole plot but need more on the work of his act. The best is the side kick alora sasam. I must command him. He is powerful on here and he is head turning. Slow clap for him. Just the opinion of your truly. My two sence of advise
