MANILA, Philippines – A recently released "uncut" trailer for the upcoming romance-drama film "A Secret Affair" doubles as a montage of memorable lines delivered by its feisty female characters.
Released online via the official account of Viva Entertainment on video-sharing site YouTube, the newest trailer for the Anne Curtis-starrer gives viewers a glimpse of the film's quotable quotes, which seem to take inspiration from the 2011 film "No Other Woman".
"No Other Woman," the second highest-grossing local film of all time, was also released by Viva Films, in partnership with Star Cinema. It also featured the first big screen team-up of Curtis and hunk actor Derek Ramsay.
The Ruel Bayani top-grosser was already a hit among local viewers, even as it had only released its first trailer in September last year. Video spoofs of the preview reel were even made, quoting the characters' witty and sometimes comedic one-liners.
The case is no different with "A Secret Affair," whose characters' comedic exchanges are already getting buzz online.
The lines delivered by Jacyln Jose, who plays Curtis' mom in the film, have already been picked up by some netizens -- from her analogy of adultery to "flashfloods" reaching "critical level," to her etymology lessons on the word "mistress."
In the trailer, Curtis is also seen making quips as a scorned wife. Donning a red dress, her character, Rafi, tells Sam (Andi Eigenmann): "It's not love, so stop thinking that in your twisted psychotic delusional little head."
Jackie Lou Blanco and Eigenmann, who portray mother and daughter in the film, also have their share of memorable lines in the Nuel Naval film.
Also starring Joel Torre, "A Secret Affair" will hit theaters nationwide on October 24.
