Joyful and hilarious...
26 December 2013 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

"Sisterakas" is a typical Tagalog/Filipino comedy, and you should have some understanding of the Filipino society to fully grasp this movie. Especially with the 'bakla' (gays) that are in the movie. I assume that if you are unfamiliar with this, then you wouldn't fully get the comedy here.

The story in "Sisterakas" is about Detty (played by Ai-Ai de las Alas) and Bernice (played by Vice Ganda) who have the same father, but were parted as children in a harsh way. Bernice vows revenge on the family. All grown up, Bernice is running a successful fashion company, and Detty have just run a business into the ground and ends up at an interview at Bernice, not knowing whom she is.

The acting in the movie is as in basically in all Tagalog comedies, and it is somewhat of an acquired taste. I do enjoy it. And yes, the acting is over the top, just as the situations are.

The characters in "Sisterakas" are colorful, hilarious and well-detailed. And the characters were nicely portrayed by the people on the cast list.

"Sisterakas" is a great movie, it is fun and entertaining, and it is colorful and anything but ordinary. If you enjoy Tagalog comedies, then it is highly recommendable that you watch "Sisterakas".
