By Stephanie Mayo — June 22, 2018Armed with intimate knowledge of what turns on or turns off their bosses, they quickly swap calendars and intel and get Rick and Kristen to meet-cute and fall in love. Of course, we know these kids will eventually fall in love with each other, too, but we forget about it because we’re having fun with the process of matchmaking two evil masters. With Netflix generating crappy original films in a frenzy almost every week (the global streaming giant aims to produce a total of 80 movies this year alone), the arrival of rom-com Set It Up is jarring. It feels like catching a giant fish after a long no-bite month. Or finally hitting the jackpot. Like a miracle. In fact, a chunk of Twitter raves is lovingly dedicated to this movie, some even touting it as the best since Harry Met Sally. Set It Up takes us to the suffocating jungle of corporate New York, zooming in on the pathetic lives of two overworked executive assistants, Harper (Zoey Deutch) and Charlie (Glen Powell). The two cute twentysomethings work (no, they practically live) in the same high-rise building, working for psychotic bosses flawlessly played by Lucy Lui and Taye Diggs. The introduction of these two non-White bosses immediately scream, “Look how this film is so inclusive!” But no matter how self-conscious or in-your face this casting move is, Liu and Diggs, both fiercely intimidating and attractive, are perfect as horrible slave-drivers. So, Harper and Charlie fall into a familiar rom-com formula: opponents-turned-allies- turned lovers. But how screenwriter Katie Silberman and director Claire Scanlon get us to the lover stage, they entertain us with rapid-fire gags and irresistible charm and hilarious snarkiness from its four main players. Deutch’s Harper (who, by the way, is a total deadringer for Rose Byrne) and Powell’s Charlie (he’s the astronaut John Glenn in Hidden Figures) meet for the first time in an undefined ungodly hour in the lobby of their office building, with Charlie making an unscrupulous move by stealing Harper’s ordered dinner for her boss. Because his boss is hungry. The film immediately and hilariously establishes the master-slave relationship they have with their bosses. Charlie and Harper are treated like Siri (i.e., unfeeling robots on beck and call, with no personal lives). But while Siri has self-respect and is programmed to decline ridiculous tasks, Charlie and Harper are literally doormats who would kill to make the impossible possible. Harper is the aspiring-writer slave to Kristen (Liu), a hotshot ESPN reporter that expects her alarm clock to go off in a way that doesn’t startle her; instead it should play a lullaby, with an increasing volume. Meanwhile, promotion-hungry Charlie works for Rick (Taye Diggs), a raging arse who frequently throws tantrums, especially at the mention of his ex-wife Kiki (who we never see in the movie). Desperate to reclaim the slightest normalcy in their lives (like feel remotely human again), the two connive and play modern-day cupids to Kristen and Rick, or what Harper relentlessly says, to “Cyrano,” their bosses. The word “Cyrano” is bombarded to us, like a desperate need to make it as the new millennial word trend. So the idea is, if they can get their psychopath masters to hook up and get romantically distracted, they will leave them slaves alone. Charlie will finally have time for his model-slash-social-climber girlfriend, Suze (real-life supermodel Joan Smalls), while Harper, who has never had a boyfriend, will finally get a chance to swipe left and right on Tinder. So the two set up their bosses à la Parent Trap, with Charlie calling it “parent-trapping.” Armed with intimate knowledge of what turns on or turns off their bosses, they quickly swap calendars and intel and get Rick and Kristen to meet-cute and fall in love. Of course, we know these kids will eventually fall in love with each other, too, but we forget about it because we’re having fun with the process of matchmaking two evil masters. What makes Set It Up chiefly work is the chemistry between Charlie and Harper, and Rick and Kristen, with Silberman’s script providing these characters enough personality and distinct quirkiness that make them irresistible to watch- evoking both exaggerated wackiness and true-to-life idiosyncrasies. While the movie does not exactly trigger a string of gut-wrenching laughter, with Silberman oftentimes falling into self-conscious traps, there’s enough humor in it to label Set It Up as overall funny. But the comedy takes centerstage whenever Liu and Diggs appear onscreen. Charlie and Harper are not exactly funny on their own, but their lively boisterous presence, and the fact that they look cute together, ferries the romantic element of the film. Contrary to love-deprived netizens falling head-over-heels in love with Set It Up, the movie still does not earn the right to be compared to iconic rom-com classics. But it’s almost there, for its refreshingly not too-raunchy take and its many universal truths on the life of corporate drudgery. It may not be a romantic-comedy masterpiece, but considering the slew of bad Netflix original movies coming our way, it’s already considered a small-screen revelation. 3 out of 5 stars Now streaming on Netflix
By Daily Tribune — July 19, 2018Celebrity heartthrob Piolo Pascual knows all too well that being a father, a sibling and also a son to his family comes with big responsibilities. That is to love, to care, to secure, to protect and provide for your loved ones wherever they are. But it all becomes a challenge when financial troubles arise. A man of his word, Piolo said he wants to give his family the best life possible and that pushed him to work hard and seize every opportunity that comes his way. “But more than just earning money, it’s how you manage your finances that makes a difference. Fortunately, I have the guidance and help of one very special lady: my very own sister, Chiqui Pascual-Gonzales, who also happens to be my Sun Life Advisor,” Piolo said. His sister has been instrumental in ensuring that his dreams for his family will all come true. “It’s a partnership through and through. With her help, I’ve been able to make it all happen while still pursuing my own passions and advocacies,” he said. Piolo and Chiqui’s story inspired Sun Life’s latest campaign, highlighting a client’s journey with Sun Life throughout the different stages of her life. It represents the many promises that Sun Life has helped bring into fruition for the past 123 years. Sun Life hopes that the campaign, as well as Piolo’s story will inspire more people to take the same path in their financial journey. “As the longest-standing life insurance company in the Philippines, we have witnessed many promises being fulfilled throughout the years and have served generations of clients. It is an honor for us to serve all our clients and help them secure their future and those of their loved ones” Sun Life chief marketing officer Mylene Lopa said. “The promises we make to our loved ones are sacred and Sun Life knows this. That’s why they are committed to helping clients achieve their goals no matter what happens,” Piolo added. “You can’t ask for a better lifetime partner than that!”
By Renato S. Bisquera — June 16, 2018With a natal Sun in Gemini-Moon in Sagittarius in his chart, Donald Trump is a romantic: he believes in the far away and long ago. Things at a distance appeal to him with the result that he is always on the move. Either he is actually travelling or he is getting the satisfaction of mobility in stories and yarns, real and imagined, of out-of-the way places such as those he reads of in romances. This is okay as long as his yarn-spinning stays purely in the realm of the imagination, but when he applies that imagination of his to his friends and stars to tell tall tales about them — look out! He loves to hold the center of the stage and to appear to know the inside dope on any and all subjects — with the result that what he says is frequently unreliable. Not that he means to tell the untruths, but his imagination is so vivid that he really believes what he says and can make others believe it. He must cultivate mental accuracy, for the analytical and scientifically critical bent is not native to him, and he is so gullible as well inventive where stories are concerned. With any encouragement at all, he will believe in ghosts, witches and warlocks, spiritualism and the weird products of séances. Stay away from things like this, for they only feed his imagination with trouble-making imagery. A tendency to tell all he knows and to invent what he doesn’t know is likely to get him into trouble. There isn’t an ounce of malice in his nature, but he can get set whole neighborhoods by the ears with a carelessly dropped hint of scandal. He is romantic, as well as adventurous, and not very constant in love, though when he falls he generally stays put for some time. He is restless, however, and tires of people, and this position frequently leads to more than one marriage. He needs mental training and should forego the reading of fiction for some definite, set line of study, which will do much to overcome his restlessness. He is popular, lively and gay in company, very expressive, and a pretty good listener. His facility in speech and movement makes him a good actor, while his peculiar brand of tact makes it possible for him to succeed in a business or political career. He is a hard person to pin down and can get around a good many situations that would stump others. But he isn’t invulnerable and is likely to meet his match someday, unless he trains himself strictly in logical mental processes, when his quickness, shrewdness and insight into people will carry him far.
