A Secret Affair grossed roughly P118M despite not being co-produced by Viva. I hope eto ang mahigitan ng The Gifted, lalo pa't bagong genre 'to for its actors. (Ayokong umasa na mala-No Other Woman ang box office receipts. Hehe.)

Add to that na Chris Martinez ang writer and director nito, the genius behind the likes of 100 (Cinemalaya entry), Kimmy Dora, Here Comes the Bride, I Do Bidoo Bidoo and the remakes of local cult flicks Temptation Island and Salawahan (Status: It's Complicated).

Showing na sya, mukhang malakas ito based sa mga nababasa ko, mukhang mahihigitan nito ang earnings ng Talk Back And You're Dead. Iba kasi yung plot nya, dark-comedy pala ito. Pero mukhang last movie muna ni Cristine kung totoo ang balita na buntis sya.

P40M first 5 days nito, according to Box Office Mojo. Not bad for a dark comedy, pero this really pales in comparison to the previous grosses of Anne Curtis' projects.

Sana mag-P100M 'to, 'coz this film is really good. (I'm gonna watch it uli tonight. =D)

P65M in 2 weeks. Sana malampasan man lang nito ang TBYD.

Sana dito nalang nakipag-partner ang Star Cinema instead of TBAYD. Siguro hindi masyadong heavily promoted kaya ganyan lang ang kita nya, trailer palang kasi parang hindi masyadong interesting although nag-iba sila sa usual comedy route at naging dark-comedy sya. Ilagay narin ito sa archieves  ;D

I like this movie.  I like the concept of the story and it was directed well.  My one and only biggest problem with this movie is the dialogue.  It would have been better if the dialogue was in tagalog only without the injection of english sentences in the dialogue.  The injection of english sentences in the dialogue killed it somewhat for me.  If ABS-CBN or any of our PH movie studio, want their movies to be accepted and enjoyed by viewers outside the Philippines, especially in North America or in english speaking countries, you guys need to stop injecting english sentences in the dialogue because the number one criticism or complaints coming from native english speakers about our movies are the dialogue of the movie.  They don't like it when the movie dialogue is in tagalog one moment and in english the next.  To them it is distracting and annoying.  They'd rather have it one or the other but not both at the same time.  So, if ABS-CBN or any of PH movie studio want to expand their reach and broaden their audience base outside the Philippines, you guys need to correct this simple problem of injecting english sentences in the dialogue of the movie. It's an easy thing to correct, management can just tell your writers to stop adding english sentences in the dialogue otherwise you are fired! So I hope you  guys at ABS will correct this cos I too want our movies to become popular not just in PH but also in other countries, but then how can they be accepted if the dialogue of the movie is holding back the potential to make our movies become popular to other people from other countries. Please fix this problem.

Conyo ang tawag diyan. Yung language ng mga teens ngayon, karamihan mga babae.

^^I should point out that almost all of the new movies that are coming out and even the ones that are made previously inject english sentences in the dialogue. 

And still, even if we are to say that that is the language of the youth today,  would it be much better still to have the dialogue in tagalog (with out the added english part) for consistency's sake  cos even those english part in the dialogue can be expressed in tagalog with out problems.
