Viva Films Hosted Victory Party For The Big Success Of 'Moron 5 And The Crying Lady'

CONGRATS TO John Lapus for the big success at the tills of “Moron 5 and the Crying Lady”, for which Viva Films hosted a victory party. It’s really his movie as he played multiple characters in it and he pulled it off all successfully, especially when he spoofed even cartoon characters. Who knows? He might win another best comedy actor award for his performance, just like when he won two years ago for his riotous performance in “Here Comes the Bride”.

He should really thank Director Wenn Deramas for giving him a wacky vehicle like this movie and also his five co-stars (Marvin Agustin, Billy Crawford, Luis Manzano, Martin Escudero and DJ Durano) who supported him well all throughout the movie where the five morons are reminiscent of Jim Carrey’s “Dumb and Dumber”. Viewers are laughing out loud all throughout the movie and that can only mean audiences today just want to laugh and be entertained, never mind if the jokes are slapstick, corny and even recycled. As usual, there’s a scene where the guys put on women’s clothes, a staple in comedies like this. Billy Crawford turned out to be the prettiest among them in drag. Giving good support are Kuya Germs and Arlene Muhlach as Billy’s parents, Dennis Padilla as Martin’s dad, and Billy and Luis’ girlfriends, Nikki Gil and Jennylyn Mercado, who appear in guest roles.
