Squeezing in melodramatic confrontation scenes makes the characters feel less authentic and less sincere. But the narrative is constructed decently with the usual Star Cinema formula. The Breakup Playlist is better than the recent Star Cinema films but it still provides inappropriate confrontation scenes and clichéd family story lines that prevents it from being genuine.
Pascual and Geronimo did a fine job acting with natural skills in singing. Their chemistry is not as awkward as their age and the soundtrack is good. You can enjoy the film as a whole, it’s just it wasn’t as honest as it wants to be. There’s a lot of sentiments it wants to discuss rather than focus on the beauty and agony in the relationship between the main characters.
The Breakup Playlist is now showing from Star Cinema and Viva Films. Rated PG.
