Richard Gutierrez happy with KC Concepcion

THE first mainstream movie to be shown in 2008, “My Best Friend’s Girlfriend” is a big hit and Regal and GMA Films hosted a victory party for its huge success at the tills.

We’ve seen the movie and it’s a well-made feel- good romantic comedy finely scripted by Suzette Doctolero and directed by Mark Reyes knowing what will click with hopeless romantics who are watching the stars of GMA-7’s top two shows, “Marimar” and “Kamandag,” together on the big screen for the very first time.

It also helps that both Richard Gutierrez and Marian Rivera are very convincing in their respective roles, even if they honestly don’t have that much attraction on screen chemistry.

Richard is splendid as Ivo, the debonaire rich boy and ladies’ man who finds his match in Marian who shows great comic flair as Grace, a feisty, principled waitress and working student who happens to be the girlfriend of his own best friend, JC de Vera.

The movie has many hilarious moments, the funniest of which includes Marian discovering Richard’s real full name on his driver’s license and the poetry reading scene where a macho-looking guy dedicates his poem to someone so unexpected. We have a feeling the movie will last long in theaters as it’s getting good word-of-mouth endorsement from viewers.

We talked to Richard during the party about his being linked to KC Concepcion and he admits they’re good friends.

“I gave her a gift for Valentine,” he says. “She asked me to watch her in ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya’ and I did. Ang galing niya.”

Is he really courting her? “She just came from a relationship and I also just did. I think it’s too premature to jump into anything. Basta happy ako with our friendship now.”

Everyone says they’ll be the ideal love team in a movie. “It’s a great honor for me kung magkakatotoo. She’s talented and has a great personality. Sana nga, mangyari even if we belong to different networks. Malay natin, di ba? I’d really love to work with her.”

A star is born! KC Concepcion’s acting debut in the “Mansyon” episode of “Maalaala Mo Kaya” last Friday proved that she’s a chip off the old block. She’s beautiful from any angle, has a winning, totally engaging screen presence and star quality written all over her. She can act, shedding copious tears effortlessly in her various dramatic scenes and delivering all her lines with touching conviction.

ABS-CBN has chosen a good vehicle for her first try as an actress. She plays Darlene, a spoiled carefree rich girl whose life turns upside down when her dad dies in an accident that also maims her mom. Their family goes bankrupt and they lose everything, including the mansion where they live. She is forced to find work and decides to break up with her boyfriend. In the end, she learns to stand by herself and helps her family pick up the pieces of their shattered life.

KC shines in several scenes, notably when she tells her mom not to lose hope and encourages her to walk again and in her farewell scene with her boyfriend when she asks for a cool off. She’s also great in her solo scene where she cries silently while looking at the belongings her dad left behind.

KC is ably supported by Agot Isidro and Ricky Davao as her parents, Martin del Rosario as her brother and, most of all, Derek Ramsay as her very understanding boyfriend who has good on-screen chemistry with her.

The only hope of ABS to have a high rating show now is for them to convince KC to topbill her own teleserye.

But before that, she should first star in a full length movie. The ideal leading man for her will really be Richard Gutierrez. Too bad they belong to warring networks. [source of news]
