Cheers on On Vodka, Beers, and Regrets

This blog contains spoilers. If you’ve watched it, feel free to read and comment. If not, stop reading and just watch the trailer here:

Watched On Vodka, Beers, and Regrets featuring JC Santos and Bela Padilla last night. I seriously thought it was going to be something like I’m Drunk, I Love You, but nope.

If you’re looking for a romantic film, this ain’t it.

But it gave a My Letters to Happy kind of feels. The whole plot leaned toward valuing, not romance. But of course, there is love about a person’s desire to help their other half become the better version of themselves. (Jeez, does a Francis still exist?) What went wrong, I think, was the connection between the movie and the viewers. I learned something new, and it gave me a new perspective on a topic that is seldom tackled in my community—alcoholism, but it stopped there.

And I’ll be blunt here: the whole film seemed to discuss a first-world problem. I mean, wine and vodka are drinks of the rich, aren’t they? Which made me think that if it were viewed from a perspective of an average worker trying to get through the day by submerging themselves in beer, I may have felt something stronger.

Well, at least, JC and Bela had their happy ending here. And great soundtrack too.
