"Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy" Grosses P200 Million Since Opening DayThe Vice Ganda-starrer "Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy" has grossed P200 million since its opening day on Christmas Day. This was according to the film's star, who played four different characters for this Star Cinema entry to the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival.
In his official Twitter account, Vice said the movie just breached the P200-million mark. He then thanked the "madlang people" for supporting his film.
He also thanked those who gave positive feedback for the film that also starred MMFF Best Actress Maricel Soriano, Joey Marquez and Ruffa Gutierrez.
"Salamat po at pinanuod nyo ang #GirlBoyBaklaTomboy! At MAS maraming salamat po at PINURI nyo pa matapos nyong panoorin. Nakakataba ng puso."
"Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy" earned three awards during the MMFF's Gabi Ng Parangal. Aside from Best Actress, the film also won the 2nd Best Picture award, as well as the Most Gender-Sensitive Film award.
The film was directed by box-office director Wenn Deramas. It tells the story about the quadruplets (all played by Vice).
The girl and the boy were brought to the United States by their father (Joey) while the gay and the lesbian were left in the Philippines with their mother (Maricel). The family had to reunite, however, when Peter (boy) had to have a liver transplant. His only compatible quadruplet was Mark (gay).
This year's MMFF puts "Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy" as the second highest grossing film, next only to Vic Sotto's and Ryzza Mae Dizon's "My Little Bossings." The film was also the first starring role of Bimby Aquino-Yap, Kris Aquino's son with basketball star James Yap.
The third most watched film was Daniel Padilla's "Pagpag Siyam Na Buhay" while the fourth top grossing MMFF movie went to Eugene Domingo's "Kimmy Dora Ang Kiyemeny Prequel."
