Arci Munoz, Jessy Mendiola & Coleen Garcia Are Ex-Convicts Who Are Recruited To Be Spies By Day And Spa Workers At Night In 'Extra Service'

ARCI MUNOZ, JESSY MENDIOLA and COLEEN GARCIA are together for the first time in a sexy action comedy that opens the new year 2017 for Star Cinema and Skylight Films, “Extra Service”, directed by Chris Martinez. Arci is paired with Ejay Falcon, Jessy with Enzo Pineda who’s from GMA-7 and Coleen with Vin Abrenica, a transferee from TV5. They play convicted felons who meet in jail and recruited by Carmi Martin to be secret agents. They are named Au, Em, Gee and work undercover as masseuses at the Touch Mahal Spa of Tessie Tomas. So they’re spa workers by night and spies by day.

“I play Au, short for Aurora,” says Arci. “Nabilanggo ako sa for robbing a bank. I’m called the Kapitana kasi sobrang strong ng personality ko.”

“I’m Em for Emerald,” says Coleen. “I’m called Maldita. Ako yung hothead sa amin, laging nang-aaway, fierce. Lagi kong kinokontra si Au kaya lagi kaming nag-aaway.”

“I’m Gee na nabilanggo naman for hacking,” says Jessy. “Ako yung pinakamatalino sa’min, tech savvy, but bobo rin kasi I’m not streetsmart. I’m called Genia.”

Chris Martinez says the script is written by Alpha Habon and echoes “Charlie’s Angels” and “Mission Impossible,” but with a very Pinoy flavor. Carmi Martin as the girls’ boss speaks carabao, Visayan-accented English. “I’m glad to be part of this film kasi I started in showbiz as one of Dolphy’s Angels,” says Carmi. “Nakaka-relate ako sa kanila kasi sila ang modern version ng Dolphy’s Angels.”

So how did the girls prepare for their roles? “As masseuses, may totoong masahista sa set to teach us what to do sa massage scenes,” says Arci.

“Mahirap yung roles namin kasi maraming action scenes,” adds Jessy. “So may standby rin na fight instructor to guide us in our stunts and fight scenes.”

“We guarantee the viewers they will have a good time watching ‘Extra Service’,” says Coleen. “It’s a combination of fun, adventure and yes, plenty of sexy scenes dahil kami ang Ultimate Sexy Squad dito. So don’t miss it when it opens in theaters on January 11 to welcome 2017.”
Is there no sapawan or scene stealing between them while shooting the movie? “None,” it’s Direk Chris who answers. “This is a team effort and everyone collaborated well. First time nilang mag-comedy like this at magaling silang lahat.”
