Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz’s It Takes a Man and a Woman’ is Highest- Grossing Filipino Film

The movie – It Takes a Man And a Woman – has officially dislodged Sisterakas as the highest grossing Filipino film, as it has now conquered the top spot in the all-time list released by independent box-office tracker Box Office Mojo.

It Takes A Man and A Woman –  a romantic comedy movie which stars box-office royalties Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz has surprisingly climbed the top spot with a record-breaking P401 Million in gross receipts.
Sarah and John Lloyd thanked their fans and the moviegoers for the overflowing support. 
The movie is graded ‘A’ by the Cinema Evaluation Board (CEB), and raked in P32.6 million when it opened on March 30. There was no stopping from there when the “Laida and Miggy” tandem earned P100 million on the fourth day and eventually hitting the P200 million mark in only eight days. The unbelievable but undeniable success of the movie earned P300 million in just two weeks in cinemas nationwide.
It Takes A Man And A Woman – is the third and final series that broke the records of the first two installments of the most successful Filipino romantic-comedy movie series. The first Laida-Miggy film  A Very Special Love  grossed P179.3 million in 2008 and its sequel  You Changed My Life  scored P225.2 million in 2009.
Just what made the Laida Magtalas and Miggy Montenegro played by Sarah and John Lloyd tick with the public?
Real chemistry –  both say that they can already feel each other’s onscreen emotions. 
Theirs is in the same vein as Vilma Santos and Christopher de Leon during their time. Vilma and Christopher had starred in 22 movies in a span of 28 years. They first appeared together in Celso Ad Castillo’s Tag-araw sa Tag-ulan in 1976 and their last film was Mano Po 111: My Love in 2004. Most of these movies made money and were critically-acclaimed –  earning numerous awards and distinction in many award-giving bodies.
Although the Sarah and John Lloyd series may not be as deep in content – its concept has a target market that reacted and trooped to the cinemas overwhelmingly.
Their tandem is magical. Their ability to transcend sparks and butterflies to the big screen is the one factor that nailed the movie’s success.
Theirs is a love team that has credibility – fans know that they are not being fooled and shortchanged into believing that something more than cinematic exists between the two lead stars. Certainly, both Sarah and John Lloyd have deep regard for each for each other and respect each other’s space. 
Further – it is a working tandem that is so light and very professional. Inspite of Sarah’s limitations, the public is accepting.
In the absence of real-life relationships going on in each’s  Sarah-John Lloyd and Vilma-Christopher tandems – such loyalty and support from the fans and the public can not be over-emphasized. In any language, it’s growth and maturity.
Sarah’s wholesome image and her “failed” relationships added to her mystery even more. Inspite of being sheltered and thought of as someone not knowing “pain”, she is able to come across as a credible actor. 
Sarah has “grown” after their first two movies. On their first two movies together – A Very Special Love and You Changed My Life – there were scenes where it felt like the two will actually kiss yet it never happened.
John Lloyd is officially her first onscreen kiss – a real kiss – Sarah herself confirmed.
We wish to congratulate Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz for the well-deserved feat!
