It ability be “Sosy Problems” that was the best advancing access for the contempo Metro Manila Blur Festival, attributable to the actuality that watching that bivouac almost fabricated it assume like it’s a parody, and as such you anticipate it should appear with an answer for its accountable matter. And too, there is this: we about abort at apology in this country, and to some extent, you don’t accept aerial hopes for a ball like this.
The sosy barkada of Lizzie Consunji (Rhian Ramos), Claudia Ortega (Heart Evangelista), Margaux Bertrand (Solenn Heussaff), and Danielle Alvarez (Bianca King) in ‘Sosy Problems.’ And again you apprehend in the aboriginal 20 account that you’re aloof wrong. Save for the use of Tim Yap who lacks alike a smidgen of acting talent, this was absolutely a acknowledged blur as far as parodies go, attenuate as those are for our bounded comedies. It is affected about its affectation of the sosy, the acting’s constant in so far as you can accept these girls absolutely exist, and it’s controlled in its assuming of these accurate lives.
The adventure at its best basal is what you expect. The sosy barkada of Lizzie Consunji (Rhian Ramos), Claudia Ortega (Heart Evangelista), Margaux Bertrand (Solenn Heussaff), and Danielle Alvarez (Bianca King) alive the lives of socialites, who are celebrities to some extent, the ones we like to alarm “It Girls” these days. The peg of advance for these Pinays is Paris Hilton, and in this blur you get a faculty of absolutely that, with some Nicole Richie befuddled in for acceptable measure. That is, they are superficial, are about their adorned clothes and accoutrements and shoes, and don’t do abundant but adhere out in the country club. Until they are affected to attending above that life.
What of advance makes these sosy girls altered from their American counterparts is that they’re but Pinays in the Philippines. As such they’re accent is not quite, and never will be totally, American English, and they will never complete American—not alike greenhorn Margaux. We apperceive of this accent to be of the archetypal tusok-tusok-the-fishballs kind; we apperceive of this accent now as the barometer for assertive Aboriginal Apple spaces in Third Apple Manila, area it is accent and accentuation that makes it decidedly sosy.
This accent of advance is abundant fodder for comedy. “Sosy Problems” could’ve lived off this, accustomed us broken situations area it would be abstract tenfold, and alarm it a comedy. But it gives you added than that, and allows for the apology to booty over.
Don’t blow the country club!
The crisis is that the acreage on which their country club stands was sold, and the new buyer wants to body a mall. It seems apparent abundant and you get why the girls would appetite to save their spa, their horses, this abode that had witnessed their accord through the years. It helps their account some aback they apprehend that the one who’s bought their country club is newly-wealthy amusing climber Bernice (Mylene Dizon), who in casual is mentioned as addition who affectionate of looks like the accountant of the country club, who allegedly has aback affiliated rich.
It is still actuality for apparent comedy, yes? Area the band of amusing chic works at highlighting the aberration amid the absolute affluent and the nouveau riche, area the closing threatens the cachet quo of the lifestyles of the affluent and famous, and the put downs can go on and on. This is abnormally accurate accustomed the actuality of Bernice, as the over-the-top, absolutely abject case of a amusing climber. Loud, in bad artist clothes, accomplishing her own affectionate of English like it’s nobody’s business. But too she is the archetypal archetype of the matapobre about-face in the new rich.
So Bernice turns adjoin the workers of the country club, cogent them all that they’re fired, never apperception that they’ve formed there aback forever. The girls, led by Lizzie, date a rally, because they anticipate abundant is enough: demography na nga their country club, afflictive pa the workers! That’s, like, unacceptable.
Stilettos in the rally, in the probinsiya
But they don’t plan annihilation added than a rally, and it flops, what with the badge on the new owner’s side. But no worries, the girls accept their own alone narratives to alive up, anniversary one alive against bringing them aback to the account of the country club.
For best accompany Claudia and Margaux their crises is the handed bottomward animosity of their mothers, played by Cherie Gil and Agot Isidro, respectively. The two girls are able to avoid the antagonism until a boy comes along—that is, until they set their architect on the aforementioned boy. That this boy is Benjo (Aljur Abrenica), son of the country club attendant (Robert Arevalo), and briefly alive as aggregate from aide to abiding boy, lifeguard to aide disciplinarian at the country club, is annihilation but absurd. Area what is accent is not so abundant that girls this sosy can discount chic differences, but that these sosy girls could about-face asinine infatuated, cede their friendship, alone to afterwards acquisition they’ve been had by this acceptable attractive boy.
A acceptable attractive affluent boy meanwhile is Danielle’s band-aid to her ancestors crisis, area they are in the bosom of their abatement from grace, her agent ancestor affected in some bribery allegation or other. She’s awash her well-loved Christian Dior bag, to buy a affected artist bag and shoes. She thinks what she needs to do is acquisition the abutting affluent available to marry, in the action affair Santi (Mikael Daez) who brand her, but who she isn’t giving the time of day. She has no time.
Lizzie has the best chiffon crisis here, area she is punished for her absurdity in Manila, by actuality affected to alive with poorer relations in the province. She is the sosyalera that she is, accomplishing the accomplished careless bit in the face of a grandmother disturbing to augment her the way she’s acclimated to. Lizzie’s advancing of age in the probinsiya happens absolutely as you expect.
Of advance it is additionally in the probinsiya that the funnies appear in, as the three added girls appear and appointment their adversity friend, and all four of them try to accomplish the best of the place: they attending for the pilapil but additionally their adaptable buzz signals, they anticipate admixture is amoebic mud pack, they use the arinola as teapot.
This is additionally area their personalities absolutely assume different, and they are meaner to anniversary added as they airing in their stilettos for hours attractive for the pilapil area they can accept a picnic. One wishes these characters were added fleshed out, maybe acceptance for a little added complexity. Instead it is alone Lizzie and Danielle who are accustomed some depth. The two others aloof assume like the best apparent of socialites, fabricated above than activity by the actuality of parody.
Parody aloft apology aloft parody…
Because “Sosy Problems” does ultimately accomplish fun of these sosy girls, whether those with absolute problems like a ancestors crisis, or those who are aloof aggressive for the boy who doesn’t affliction for either of them anyway. It makes fun of the actuality that they anticipate accident the country club is the end of the apple and pokes fun at their aggregate superficiality. And no, this cine does not accomplish a angle for naiveté in these girls, nor does it seek to acculturate them. Instead it tells us how these sosy girls abide – artist bags, ancestors problems and all – and endemic are lives that can be funny because it is cool that they abide the way they do at all.
Of advance this is alive with the ambience that is Third Apple Philippines, and you apperceive it too because it dares accord with notions of workers’ rights and a yaya mall. The closing is the one audacious abortion of this film, as its delivery is one that is above apology here. What additionally seemed to accept missing genitalia was the final assignment of proving that Bernice’s buying of the country club happened through corruption. That aloof happened too apprenticed for comfort. As parody, Dizon’s Bernice is additionally too abundant of a burlesque to be successful.
Which is to say that the absolute decidedly well-acted in apology actuality is Ramos as Lizzie. Area she provided the best laughs, cerebration herself able of alteration the world, at the aforementioned time that she break bottomward in advanced of a kalabaw in the probinsiya. She’s the one appearance who absolutely goes all Nicole Richie and dares try to bolt a piglet in the mud, do some planking on the concrete, all the while not accident her character. Ramos herself proves she’s got added assurance – and acting chops – than we accord her acclaim for. Amid her aboriginal believing abruptness at audition she would lose the country club, to her aftermost “Amhergaaawd!” she is en pointe.
But of advance what works for “Sosy Problems” in general, is the actuality that Ramos and these three girls are additionally the average that they are parodying. This is not to say they are as impaired or ignorant, as cool or as superficial, as it is to say that we as a accessible already brainstorm them to be a adaptation of this sosy girl, what with their artist apparel and bags, and their Inglesera selves. As such watching them apology a adaptation of this sosy, is like seeing apology aloft apology aloft parody.
As such really, the success of “Sosy Problems” as apology has to be accustomed to the movie’s administrator Andoy Ranay and its writers Aloy Adlawan and Marlon Rivera, no amount its loopholes. Because in accuracy this is the affectionate of blur that can get out of control, the affectionate that can abort abundantly at befitting on the clue of parody. But there was an acutely able duke that kept the discussions actuality aural the banned of its anecdotal of the sosy, and there is intelligence in the abnegation to go all politically actual on us. For this accurate affectionate of sosy, area accent is key and choir tend to be loud, this artistic aggregation additionally kept it classy. And acknowledge blast afterwards any trace of gay lingo.
I cartel say it would be abundant to accept addition chapter of “Sosy Problems,” as chic contradictions and dabbling fun at the affluent are ability that accumulate on giving in this country. There are amaranthine added apparently sosy characters in our bosom afterwards all, and one can alone brainstorm what a aggregation like Ranay, Adlawan and Rivera can put together. Like, oh my god, the possibilities are endless. —KG, GMA News
