MOVIE REVIEW | Four Sisters and a Wedding

‘Four Sisters and a Wedding’ tackles family issues in comedic and dramatic style. This is a two-in-one movie. The film is about family relationship (rivalry, middle child syndrome, favoritism, black sheep) and a special occasion.

Star Cinema's initial movie offering for its 20th anniversary celebration shares the story of the Salazar siblings.

Director Cathy Garcia Molina made sure that each of the stars was given exposure to shine in this movie. 

Teodora ‘Teddie’ Salazar (Toni Gonzaga) is the eldest child who works as a teacher in Spain. Toni successfully portrayed the role as she plays it with her own ‘Toni Gonzaga’ performance. There are parts in this story with double meaning such as when Toni delivered this line: “Sabi ko na may tinatagong baho ang mga bay-ag na ‘yan eh!”

Roberta ‘Bobbie’ Salazar (Bea Alonzo) is a New York-based corporate communications manager. Bea’s character was the star of the show. She has the longest lines delivered.

Alexandra ‘Alex’ Salazar (Angel Locsin) is a Manila-based independent film assistant director. Angel has an adventurous character. She has the most number of memorable scenes – when she took a bath in a gas station and when she dragged Mocha from the bar.

Gabriela ‘Gabbie’ Salazar (Shaina Magdayao) is a school teacher who lives at home together with their mother. With lack of storyline, Shaina has the least exposure but she made her own spotlight.

CJ Salazar (Enchong Dee) is the youngest child and the only guy in the family, who put all his sisters in shock when he announced that he is going to marry his girlfriend for three months, Princess Antuanette Mae Bayag (Angeline Quinto).

CJ’s  fiancée is not an ordinary girl. She’s an only child of a far more well-to-do family. 

With only two weeks, the sisters agreed to dissuade their baby brother from marrying his fiancée. But as they interact with each other for the wedding, the Salazar siblings also face the feelings and issues they've tried to keep for the longest time. Lies were revealed.

Carmi Martin’s French accent and Rebiso biscuit placement are unforgettable. 

The subject of the story is not only about wedding. It is a family drama, not focusing on mother-father and parents-siblings conflicts, but on sibling relationship.

Some of the moral lessons were emphasized in the relationships of Alex and Bobbie, the matriarch of the family and her siblings, and the eldest and second daughters.

This is about forgiveness and acceptance and how one should learn to appreciate each member of a family.

Also starring in the movie are Coney Reyes and Sam Milby. Completing the cast are Carmi Martin, Boboy Garovillo, Bernard Palanca and Janus del Prado.

‘Four Sisters and a Wedding’ is now showing in all theaters nationwide.

RATING: 8/10
