OctoArts' "My Househusband: Ikaw Na" for MMFF 2011

OctoArts' "My Househusband: Ikaw Na" for MMFF 2011.

Starring real life husband and wife Ryan Agoncillo and Judy Ann Santos, the film speaks volumes of success in so many aspects already. Joining the fray is undisputed comedy actress Eugene Domingo.  All three premiere talents join outstanding chemistry with Director Jose Javier Reyes.

Ryan and Juday's roles become even more realistic in their hands since they can relate to their characters in many aspects.  Like married couple Mia and Rod, the lead characters in the movie,  Judy Ann and Ryan know exactly what it's like to raise kids, to balance career and family life, to stay best friends with your significant other even after trying the knot, and to be clear on priorities and keep sense of humor especially through thin.

Judy Ann Santos says  "Sa pag sasama ng mag asawa dapat nanduon ang trust at care. Laging isipin ang ikakabuti ng pamilya. Hindi rin dapat pag awayan ang pera. Dahil isa ito sa dahilan kung bakit maraming couple ang nag hihiwalay. Dapat lahat nasa ayos ang pag babudget. Ryan jokes "Pag money ni sweetheart sa kanya, pag money ko sa kanya pa rin,".

"My Househusband: Ikaw Na!" is most timely; about a married couple who has a non-tradional set up in which the husband takes care of the kids and in manning the house while the wife looks after putting food on the table. along the way, situations arise that test the arrangement and their relationship. "Many men today are 'househusband' either by choice or circumstance and in this film, we show the hilarious side of it," said he whose vision for the film was so clear to him that shooting the scenes were often a swift and smooth affair.

"My Househusband: Ikaw Na!"  is OctoArts Films' entry to the 2011 MMFF.  It opens on Christmas Day.
