If you think and talk of Indie Films , the first person who will comes out of your mind is Eugene Domingo and its true Instant Mommy was casted by non other than Ms. Eugene its a story of a typical Filipina women who dream of having a good life by marrying a foreigner for her to be secured and her family as well . Nonetheless, this movie shows and teach us as a nation that it is not always and should be the answer to all of our dreams but most of the time our women becomes a victim and instantly be an Instant Mommy. Good thing that in this movie ,Eugene just pretend to be pregnant to shame the man she loves .
The movie stars Eugene Domingo as Betchay, a breadwinner wardrobe assistant who is committed to her Japanese fiancee Kaoru (Yuki Matsuzaki) because she is pregnant with their child.
In a hilarious turn of events, she suffers a miscarriage and she realizes the only way to get everything back is to become an Instant Mommy.
Eugene Domingo proves that she deserved winning the Yahoo OMG! award for best comedienne. She is the main reason for the standing ovation the crowd gave the movie when it was over. Like other indie films, small roles are once again made famous by singer Rico J. Puno as Betchay's father and Earl Ignacio as one of her work mates.
This is one of those movies that proves indie movies can compete with the mainstream movies. It was a great comedy that had me laughing out loud on several occasions. She went through several mishaps on trying to prove to Kaoru that she is indeed pregnant. All of them would end up involving an ex girlfriend of her brother, a secret lover and her gay best friend.
I must say that the movie is worth seeing and may it opens the minds of our Women be it Mothers and Daughters as well , as it opens to theaters on August 28, 2013
