Written and directed by Jose Javier Reyes

Frustrating is how consistently mediocre it is, how every scene tries hard to be funny or sensible, how every joke is not on you but on the film itself. On second thought Joey Reyes is barely keeping his head above water in his recent films, a bunch of them bordering between tacky and passable, which is another reason to be frustrated because he used to be a good scriptwriter. Those twin wedding movies, Kasal Kasali Kasalo and Sakal Sakali Saklolo, are over the top yet the pleasure of watching them stays even on the second or third viewing because of Judy Ann Santos, Ryan Agoncillo, and Gina Pareño. Wedding Tayo Wedding Hindi!, which used to be p’Wedding Tayo, p’Wedding Hindi!, tramples on the same theme and concerns; however, it’s obviously done in haste and poor taste. Otherwise, Toni wouldn’t be talking in dated gay speak gratingly, or Eugene’s acting wouldn’t be so annoyingly forced, or the entire movie wouldn’t be so pedestrian it deserves a towing service.
