Movie: The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin [2011]

I first saw the trailer on YouTube some months back and got really excited to see Vice Ganda in his newest movie, The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin [The Unbeatable Private Benjamin] which was released in Philippine cinemas on 26 October and waspraybeyt benjamin directed by the talented Wenn V. Deramas [Ang Tanging Ina movies, Who’s That Girl, and more].

I am unsure if I should say that I am a fan of Vice Ganda as I’ve only seen him on telly a few times [Showtime in particular.  Thanks to the internet!].  He’s witty and cool and his punchlines tickle me a lot!  “Vice Ganda in a movie? --- That’s going to be great!”, I thought. 

Finally yesterday, before heading to bed, I decided to watch The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin to lighten up my day.  The first 10 minutes of the film were my favorite.  The flashbacks were so funny!  The rest of the movie wasn’t that unique.  The story was simple and very easy to follow but having said those, it was NOT actually boring to watch.  I was so surprised to find myself laughing though I already knew what was coming.  I guess Vice’s ability to amuse his audience really worked on me!

If you are planning on watching Praybeyt Benjamin, I suggest you level your expectation to only 6 out of 10.  Do not set the bar too high or you’ll just end up in misery.  It’s not as funny as Ang Tanging Ina nor My Amnesia Girl  but it’s definitely a film that will make you go “Ha ha!” a lot.

Here’s the Praybeyt Benjamin official trailer which also stars Derek Ramsay, Eddie Garcia, Jimmy Santos, Nikki Valdez, Vandolph, Carlos Agassi, DJ Durano and many more!
