"Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy" Is The Highest-Grossing Filipino Film Of All TimeVice Ganda's "Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy" surpassed "Sisterakas" as the highest-grossing Filipino film of all time. "Sisterakas" is Vice's 2012 film with Kris Aquino and Ai-Ai Delas Alas.
In the film, Vice portrayed quadruplets who have different sexual orientations--a girl, a boy, a lesbian and a gay.
This achievement was announced by Star Cinema executives during a thanksgiving party also attended by director Wenn Deramas, ABS-CBN President Charo Santos-Concio, Star Cinema head Malou Santos and Viva Films' June Rufino.
"Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy" is a production of Star Cinema and Viva Films. Since it opened on Christmas Day, the film grossed P427 million.
This movie is an entry to the 39th Metro Manila Film Festival. It was awarded 2nd Best Picture during the Gabi Ng Parangal.
"Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy" is not the highest-grossing film of the festival, but organizers reported that the movie ruled daily grosses. The film is just P450,000 short of the earnings of the top-grosser, "My Little Bossings."
The box-office hit "My Little Bossings" was co-produced by Kris Aquino and Vic Sotto. It starred Kris' son, Bimby, and child wonder Ryzza Mae Dizon.
Vice and Kris admitted earlier that their friendship was affected because of the MMFF competition. However, they have since made up and promised not to let the rivalry affect their friendship again.
Vice said they are now in speaking terms again as Kris even bought him a gift from London, where she vacationed with her sons.
Also, Kris said that the rivalry was just a phase in their friendship since they both wanted their respective films to do well in the box office.
"My Little Bossings" won the 3rd Best Picture award at the Gabi Ng Parangal.
