Beauty and the Bestie is a Filipino comedy action film released in 2015. Directed by Wenn Deramas, the movie stars Vice Ganda, one of the most popular and highest-grossing comedians in the Philippines, Coco Martin, and James Reid. The film takes place in the Philippines and centers around the story of a group of friends who get involved in a dangerous mission to save the country from terrorists. Vice Ganda plays the role of a famous hairstylist named Sheena, who is also a secret agent for the Philippine National Police. Sheena's best friend is Eric, played by Martin, a special agent of the Republic of the Philippines' Intelligence Agency.

The story begins with Sheena and Eric's mission to obtain a hard drive that contains sensitive information about the country's defense system, stolen by an international terrorist group called the Abuweiser. Sheena and Eric team up to recover the hard drive with the help of the Abuweiser's former member, another CIA agent named John (played by James Reid).

The movie is filled with hilarious scenes as they go on different missions, including a scene where they practice their cover by pretending to be a family in a mall. The scenes showcase the comedic talent of Vice Ganda, who is known for her exaggerated facial expressions and witty lines.

Aside from comedy, the movie also tackles issues of national security, friendship, and betrayal. There is a brutal twist when Eric is betrayed by a member of their team, which puts their mission and country in danger. The plot thickens as the group tries to navigate through the roads of betrayal and deception to successfully complete their operation.

Aside from Vice Ganda, Martin, and Reid, the film also features other notable actors and actresses in the Philippine entertainment industry, such as Beauty Gonzalez, Alonzo Muhlach, and Marco Masa. They all contribute to the overall success of the film, and their performances are equally lauded by critics and audiences alike.

The chemistry between Vice Ganda and Coco Martin is undeniable, and they complement each other perfectly. Their friendship and loyalty to each other, despite the challenges and danger they face, is one of the most heartwarming aspects of the movie.

The movie's soundtrack is also impressive, featuring original songs from some of the most popular singers in the Philippines, such as Nadine Lustre, James Reid's real-life girlfriend, and the iconic balladeer, Martin Nievera.

Overall, Beauty and the Bestie is a fun-filled, action-packed, and heartwarming movie that showcases the best of Philippine cinema. With its exceptional cast, comedic timing, and catchy music, it is a must-watch for anyone who loves comedy-action films. The film grossed more than PHP 529 million and became the highest-grossing Filipino movie of all time until it was surpassed by The Hows of Us in 2018.
