Anne Curtis and Vice Ganda Show Us Why "The Mall, The Merrier" Is The Laugh Trip You’ll Need To Combat Holiday Stress

The film, an official entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival, is Star Cinema and Viva Films’ holiday movie offering

Every year starting December 25, cinemas in the country make way for the Metro Manila Film Festival. During this time, only local movies occupy theaters across the Philippines, showcasing excellence in filmmaking and storytelling. This year, one of the offerings is Star Cinema and Viva Films’ The Mall, The Merrier starring Anne Curtis and Vice Ganda

The Mall, The Merrier tells the story of Moira (Vice Ganda) and Morissette (Anne Curtis), rival sisters who must come together to defeat evil and make sure that a special, magical book doesn’t go to the hands of those with bad intentions.

It’s the perfect fare for those looking to combat holiday stress—especially now that Christmas has just passed and the new year (and the new decade!) is just around the corner. 

Vice Ganda’s status as a Christmas movie icon is solidified with his performance in this movie, and Anne is wonderfully charming and hilarious in her turn as Morissette. Her comedic chops are at an all-time high, and of course, Vice’s timing is quick and sharp, never missing a beat. 

The Mall, the Merrier is directed by Barry Gonzalez and stars Vice Ganda, Anne Curtis, Dimples Romana, Tony Labrusca, Elisse Joson, and Jameson Blake.
