Despite our previously stated notes on scripting flaws in “Starting Over Again,” we congratulate the makers of the film for grossing P300 million after only a couple of weeks in release. This is a signal indication that the mainstream movie industry is slowly but surely climbing out of the rut that it’s inhabited for over a decade now.
Actor Piolo Pascual, said to be dating fellow ABS-CBN artist Shaina Magdayao, prays love will come again: “I know it will happen at the right time. I didn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Olivia Lamasan’s “Starting Over Again” begins with a back story that shows lead characters played by Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga happily and even giddily in love for several years—until they break up!

We at the Cinema Evaluation Board gave “Starting Over Again” a grade of B. Toni Gonzaga and Piolo Pascual are quite an engaging tandem. Iza Calzado showed the power of restrained acting.

Last year, Eugene Domingo distinguished herself by winning thespic honors both here and abroad. But, she concluded the year with yet another “Kimmy [...]
Actor Piolo Pascual plans to celebrate Christmas with the survivors of Supertyphoon “Yolanda.” He says: “My family wants to go there (Tacloban) on or before Christmas to personally visit them. “I’m grateful for the success [of the recent Sunpiology race]. It rained but none thought of leaving. There was a free concert afterwards. [...]

On occasion, some efforts are made to revive it, although without much success. But, the current film “On the Job” is doing better than expected at the tills, so if it continues to [...]

Piolo Pascual and Gerald Anderson take a big risk by acting against type in director Erik Matti and screenwriter Michiko Yamamoto’s gritty cops-and-robbers thriller, “On The Job”—which polarized critics when it premiered at this year’s Cannes film festival.
