TV’s most bewitching beauty, Liza Soberano, stars in Everyday I Love You, a rom-com that opened last October 28. Soberano stars opposite Enrique Gil and Gerald Anderson in an accidental love triangle brought about by an accident that leaves Anderson in a coma, and the work-related arrival of Gil in Bacolod where Liza lives. As in many movie love triangles, you’ve got one beautiful girl, and two guys enchanted by said girl.
In the end, only one guy will remain.
And what a lucky guy he will be, because Liza is pure magic in this Star Cinema flick. This is a rom-com done right by director Mae Cruz-Alviar. But what really put this one over the edge is Liza’s ability to leave us open-mouthed and absolutely smitten in many of her scenes.
Below are what we’re talking about!
(SPOILERS AHEAD! IF YOU PLAN ON SEEING IT, DON’T READ THIS ARTICLE JUST YET!)
1) WHEN SHE TRIES TO CLIMB THAT TREE
...and succeeds. Liza as Audrey Locsin is free-spirited, beaming with colorful energy—energy that Gil as hotshot TV producer Ethan brings out and Anderson as strict haciendero Tristan tries to suppress.
2) WHEN SHE ATTEMPTS TO GET ENRIQUE GIL TO DELETE FOOTAGE OF HER IN HIS PHONE-CAMERA
Liza and Gil first meet on a highway in Bacolod. Liza accidentally takes a video of Gil, so he repays the act in kind and takes a video of her using his phone. Liza is absolutely livid, and says “Buksan mo!” in the cutest way possible.
3) AND THEN CHASES HIM ON HER SCOOTER
Move over, James Bond.
4) ACTUALLY, EVERY TIME SHE RIDES THAT SCOOTER
There’s just something adorable about seeing a girl as beautiful as Liza ride the kind of vehicle we normally associate with guys.
5) AND EVERY TIME SHE WEARS THAT HELMET
Helmet companies might want to look into securing Liza’s services as their endorser.
6) WHEN SHE GETS ABSOLUTELY WASTED
The 17-year-old ingénue demonstrated surprising range with her acting. At different points in the movie, she was kooky, goofy, overwhelmed, stunned, hopeless, and jubilant.
At one point, she was also flat-out drunk in a scene that just might be one of the most entertaining (and for the girls, most kilig-inducing) in the movie. Such a scene could’ve been easily overacted by a less capable actress, but here she pulls it off with just the right amount of wooziness in the eye, slurred speech, and shaky legs. It’s cute and funny.
In real life, you see someone as properly wrecked as that, you’d be all pissed and annoyed—not unless of course that drunk is Liza Soberano, a girl you’ll just want to take care of like Gil did.
7) WHEN SHE CRIES HER HEART OUT TO GERALD, ASKING HIM TO WAKE UP
Guy at the cinema: “What?! No?! I’m not crying! Some kind of dust got into my eye. I’m not crying.”
8) WHEN SHE DOES THAT SPINNING THING
Alright, alright, it’s kind of cheesy. But why can’t we take our eyes off of it?
9) WHEN SHE GETS HER FACED STUFFED WITH PIAYA
While on a scooter. Wearing her helmet. She knows how to up the cute level, doesn’t she?
10) WHEN SHE DROPS TO THE FLOOR TO FORCE PEOPLE IN THE AIRPORT TO MISS THEIR FLIGHTS FOR HER SHOW
Girls like her aren’t supposed to be rolling around on the floor, but that’s just the way Liza rolls!
11) WHEN SHE DONS THAT CHICKEN COSTUME FOR A KID WITH CANCER, AND THEN “MARRIES” HIM
Her fictional show in the movie, Silay Scooter Girl, takes requests from Bacolod natives—requests asking her to do certain activities. That’s why she rolled on the airport’s floor and ate the piaya while on her scooter.
One of the most heartwarming requests was that wish she granted to a kid with cancer. The kid wanted to marry her. She said yes, and they pretended to get married. In a chicken costume.
We told you she can be goofy!
12) WHEN SHE ABSOLUTELY SMOTHERS HER CHICKEN INASAL WITH CHICKEN OIL
Anderson's strict haciendero, Tristan, had always stopped Audrey from putting chicken oil on her rice. It’s unhealthy, Tristan says. Out of her love for Tristan, Audrey had always obeyed.
Until of course she gets to have dinner with hotshot TV producer Ethan and their production team, who urges her to go on, be merry, and put as much chicken oil as she wants—a clear illustration of how Tristan had always suppressed the real Audrey, which Ethan, on the other hand, encourages.
13) THIS SCENE
