This year’s Metro Manila Film Festival is set to double the holiday cheer with Jun Robles Lana’s Becky and Badette highlighting the movie lineup with a unique blend of humor, outrageous twinning, and delightful antics from comedy queens Eugene Domingo and Pokwang in their titular roles.

Combining humor with heartfelt storytelling, Becky and Badette is essentially a celebration of true friendship that audiences can easily relate with.

Helmed by the same director who created the 2021 MMFF Best Picture “Big Night!” and the hit comedy films “Die Beautiful,” “Born Beautiful,” “The Panti Sisters,” and “Sampung Mga Kerida,” Becky and Badette is expected to deliver the same Jun Robles Lana signature storytelling than can get boisterously funny yet brings a touching, heartwarming twist.
