MANILA -- Game 2 of the UAAP’s so-called “Battle of Katipunan” is all set on Wednesday — so too are the Salazar siblings, who are ready to cheer for their respective schools.

That’s according to the latest meme to sprout from “Four Sisters and a Wedding,” the well-loved 2013 film about siblings who connive against their only brother’s upcoming wedding, in the process opening a can of worms about their relationships.

Over the years since its original release, the Star Cinema film has frequently resurfaced among fans online, in light of the relatable dynamics of the siblings portrayed by Bea Alonzo, Angel Locsin, Toni Gonzaga, Shaina Magdayao, and Enchong Dee.

In tweets that went viral over the weekend, “Four Sisters and a Wedding” was found to have another layer of being relatable, at least to students and graduates of the University of the Philippines and Ateneo de Manila University.

Bobbie (Alonzo), it turns out, was the lone Salazar sibling who graduated from Ateneo, while the rest — Teddie (Gonzaga), Alex (Locsin), Gabbie (Magdayao), and CJ (Dee) — all went to UP. The detail was pointed out by one hawk-eyed fan who noticed the characters’ graduation photos, as shown briefly in a scene towards the film’s end.

With the fresh awareness of the characters’ schools, fans of “Four Sisters and a Wedding” also saw a number of scenes with new perspective — such as Bobbie embodying the Atenean stereotype of speaking English, and Alex being the type of “Iska” whose career is driven foremost by passion.
