English Only, Please: Top 5 Lines, Life & Love Lessons

English Only, Please: Top 5 Lines, Life & Love Lessons

 

A light-hearted  romantic comedy film, English Only, Please is a combination of optimism, broken hearts and the fuzzy warmth of a newfound true love. It follows two strangers, Julian Parker (Derek Ramsay) and Teresa Madlansacay (Jennylyn Mercado) as they met online for the latter’s Filipino language tutorial services. Both broken hearted, Ramsay and Mercado recover for a gripping final stretch detailing their efforts at figuring out where to take their newfound relationship. It may be an offbeat romcom but it’s filmed with a coherent storyline that was executed to impressively engross the audience by Director Dan Villegas; of course, working hand in hand with the original screenplay from Jadaone and Pessumal. English Only, Please deftly balances the characters’ charm and conversation on screen;  their lines are triggered with real life experiences and measured with substantial care. I was expecting Ramsay to be his usual cocky, full of himself character but to my surprise, he was subdued and his portrayal of the character was convincing. If you’ll watch it, pay extra attention to the way he speaks Tagalog. In fact, I find myself admiring that character for his courage, for how he portrayed it naturally or not “hinog sa pilit.” Furthermore, I am fascinated by Mercado, who seemed to shine in creating such a persuasively relatable character.

English Only, Please has captured romance by two people whose hearts have been broken; sounds typical but the palpable chemistry between Ramsay and Mercado is an achievement. An intertwined performance made a whole lot of contribution to the success of this film. Director Dan Villegas deserves credit for taking these characters to a place of authenticity. While I am not here to justify why it won 2nd Best Picture in the recently concluded Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF), let me share  a few of the hit lines, lessons and quotes from the said movie.

1. It’s not you, It’s Me.   – Rico / Kean Cipriano (#EnglishOnlyPlease) This is the line followed by your significant other’s puppy eyes, letting you know that you are not the problem that is causing the break up. No one can ever buy this explanation when breaking up with someone, well..why should you? Feel free to comment below if you are one please. 

 

2. “Itodo mo na…HOY!– Tere / Jennylyn Mercado (#EnglishOnlyPlease) The scene wherein the audience will break into laughter – guaranteed.  As their first tutorial scene, you can see how the two characters’ personalities clash with laughter. 

 

3. Wala naman magbibilang kung ilang beses kang nagpakatanga diba?  – Tere / Jennylyn Mercado (#EnglishOnlyPlease) How foolish are you when it comes to love? You love him, but he loves someone else, what does that make you? As what others would say, “Matauhan ka nga, hindi ka nya mahal!” My take: So kung walang nagbibilang kung ilang beses tayo nagpapaka-tanga, ang ibig sabihin ba nun eh… keri lang? 

 

4. “Eh, ako pa ba?” – Tere / Jennylyn Mercado (#EnglishOnlyPlease) . When the douche boyfriend asks for ‘more’…Mercado flawlessly nailed this one.

 

5. “OO NA! AKO NA! AKO NA ANG MAG-ISA!”  – Tere / Jennylyn Mercado (#EnglishOnlyPlease). The video went viral actually as apparently a lot of women were able to relate with Mercado’s character. There is a huge difference between the trailer and the movie of this particular scene. You’ll realize that in the movie, it ain’t just comedy but there was pain and deep longing behind those lines.
