To Love Some Buddy is a 2018 Filipino romantic comedy directed by Jason Paul Laxamana starring the popular Megan Young, and Zanjoe Marudo. The film also stars newcomer Donny Pangilinan alongside the seasoned actors, making it a delightful mix of talent. The story follows the complicated relationship of two childhood friends, Faith (Maja Salvador) and Julius (Zanjoe Marudo).

Faith and Julius have been friends since they were kids. They had always been close and shared a special bond since growing up together but as they grow up, they become more distant. Faith, who was once an overweight student, has now transformed into a beautiful and confident woman, while Julius, on the other hand, hasn't changed much at all.

When Faith's latest boyfriend ends their relationship, she turns to Julius for comfort. She is happy to finally have him back in her life, but she realizes that she has started to develop deeper feelings for him. Julius, on the other hand, is oblivious to these feelings and sees her only as a friend. The dynamic between the two takes a turn when Faith's new boyfriend, Zach (Donny Pangilinan), enters the picture. Zach is charming, smart, and a great catch, but despite this, Faith's feelings for Julius are still present.

As Faith struggles with her emotions, she decides to take a break from Julius and focus on her own life. But Julius can't help but notice that Faith is pulling away from him. He starts to realize that maybe he has feelings for her as well. As Julius tries to capture Faith's heart, a new love triangle forms between Faith, Julius, and Zach.

To Love Some Buddy is a refreshing take on the classic rom-com genre. The film is filled with comedic moments, witty dialogue and relatable characters that make it easy to root for this lovable trio of Faith, Julius, and Zach. The film also tackles themes of friendship, love, and self-acceptance, which will resonate with audiences of all ages.

The casting of Maja Salvador as Faith was perfect. She effortlessly brings out the character's complexities with her emotional expressions, comedic timing, and delivery of the witty lines. Zanjoe Marudo as Julius gives the character a relatable and non-judgmental portrayal, effortlessly capturing the essence of the best friend who develops deeper emotions for his close friend. Also making his debut, Donny Pangilinan also impressed with his portrayal of Zach, the charming new love interest who brings a share of heat to the story.

The cinematography of the film takes the audience on a tour of Manila, showcasing different scenic locations from coffee shops to malls and parks. The screenplay carefully balances laughter with emotional moments and evokes a sense of nostalgia that comes from growing up with someone special.

To Love Some Buddy is a great film to watch with friends or loved ones who appreciate a light, funny, and heartwarming story. It's ultimately a story about two best friends who turn romantic in unexpected ways, and while it might not offer any surprises, it is charming and endearing.
