Love never gets old.
The abundance of romantic comedies in the Philippines is proof enough.
For all the hackneyed meet-cutes and montages of two people falling in love—sharing ice cream, hands interlocking for the first time, the clumsy leading lady accidentally falling off some ladder (there's always a ladder) and the dreamboat catching her by the waist—romance will always have a place in the audience's heart.
Philippine cinema makes evident that Filipinos are die-hard hopeless romantics. Pinoys love their rom-coms light-hearted, over-the-top mushy, fairy tale-like, oftentimes peppered with dialogues that evoke heartaches. And, always, there's that thing called "kilig"—that strong giddy feeling stirred by the first stages of romance between the leading lady and her dreamboat.
In this top list, PEP.ph compiles Filipino rom-coms that turned out to be classics for the real solid "kilig" they handed their audience.
