‘Bride for Rent’ is Star Cinema’s Opening Salvo for 2014
January 4, 2014 by Star Cinema
Frsh from its critical and box-office triumph in the recently concluded Metro Manila Film Festival, Star Cinema continues its 20th anniversary celebration as it opens 2014 with a bang with “Bride For Rent,” a romantic comedy starring Kim Chiu and Xian Lim.
Directed by box-office director Mae Czarina Cruz, whose most notable recent work is 2013’s smash hit She’s The One, Bride For Rent marks the much-awaited silver screen reunion of Kim and Xian who are arguably considered as one of the hottest blockbuster love-teams in the country today.
Bride For Rent is a hilarious love story centered on Rocco Espiritu (Lim) and Rocky Espiritu (Chiu) who are both in desperate need of money. Rocco needs to get married to have access to his sizable trust fund while Rocky on the other hand is frantic for rent money lest her whole family gets evicted and homeless.
Rocco conspires with Rocky who agrees to act as his “pseudo wife” in exchange for a huge “talent fee.” A series of sidesplitting problems arise as Rocco and Rocky implement their deceitful plot. Would their plan work or would it backfire on them with the possibility of them developing actual feelings with each other?
It should be noted that Bride For Rent is the very first film collaboration between Kim and Xian after their 2013 smash hit Bakit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo? The film also features the grand comeback of Asia’s Queen Of Songs Pilita Corrales to the big-screen as she portrays a very special role. Both film buffs and fans of the Kim-Xian love-team can look forward to an unforgettable and feel-good cinematic experience with Bride For Rent which is the perfect way to jumpstart the New Year.
Bride For Rent is showing in all cinemas nationwide starting January 15.
