Kimmy Dora: Kambal sa Kieme

Eugene Domingo as Kimmy and Dora Go Dong Hae is funny and witty as ever.

Although, there is something to be said about how the film passes off as
absurd while still keeping up a believable simulation of reality.

The exaggerated characters are based on how real people and real Filipinos behave. I saw this movie with my family and we were joking about how some of them, us, acted like some people in the movie sometimes.

Plot-wise, it's perfectly believable and funny for a person to get hit by a moving cart and stay standing while the cart falls to pieces and the cart passengers also remain unscathed.

It's also funny and well set-up that a twin and heiress would be tortured by being slapped with rubber slippers.

We could even forgive and like the cheesy song number in the end.

We can, however, stop suspending disbelief when a real looking bullet stops mid-air and acts confused at which twin to shoot. (Why shoot anyway when you don't even know which twin to arrest?) Or when a real-looking dog acts cartoony like those bobbing head toys. (Or is that just me being peeved about the use of CGI in some Philippine movies?)

Also, why did Johnson (Ding Dong Dantes) really talk Dora, the simpleton twin, who is also the object of his affection, into pretending that she was the dominatrix twin Kimmy and lie to their dad about Kimmy's true state? Unresolved but, o well, not actually important.

Rating: 8/10
