The Mommy Returns full movie review - Insulting, ridiculous, not worth your time
After Ruby (Pokwang) died from an accident, husband William (Gabby Concepcion) marries Catherine (Ruffa Gutierrez) just after 40 days of his wife's death. This drives Ruby from purgatory to go back to earth and make it difficult for Catherine.
Like other comedy movies, this makes references to TV showbiz shows and old movies. This one reminisces Madrasta (starring Sharon as a stepmother) and Bituing Walang Ningning (pussycat!) that are not a bit funny. The kids are supposed to be endearing (gay son, talkative daughters) but I can't symphatize with them. The make up of Pokwang is supposed to be hilarious, but it looks gruesome. The usual slapstick jokes are all over the place and the supposed dramatic moments are to cringe at.
Aside from the story line that is ridiculous and unbelievable, it is unbelievable that Gabby Concepcion has not learned how to act after all these years. Medically, it is also hard to accept that someone supposed to be dying, looks so healthy and still capable of fathering a child.
Avoid this movie, like other comedies of this kind, this is an insult to your intelligence and waste of time and money.
