Star Cinema and Viva Films’ Finally Found Someone, the fourth movie of the blockbuster tandem of John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo or AshLloyd, defies Tropical Storm Gorio and the hellish Metro Manila traffic and emboldens people to watch it in droves. Finally Found Someone is directed by Theodore Boborol.
Finally Found Someone is a romantic-comedy film that not only banks on the undeniable onscreen chemistry between John Lloyd and Sarah but also on something familial and familiar that fans and casual viewers have grown accustomed to.
Sarah is Aprilyn Esguerra, the woman jilted on her wedding day by his almost imaginary groom. Believe it or not, being left at the altar is just the first of the series of unfortunate events that happened to Aprilyn that day, which earns her the moniker #ChosBride among netizens. John Lloyd is Rafael “Raffy” Sandoval, a public relations maven who is tasked to change Aprilyn from the #ChosBride to #ChosBrideNoMore. Can they be each other’s respective future wife and future husband?
The events before the title appears are hilarious! Do not miss the beginning of the film!
