Unofficially Yours is a romantic-comedy film that was released in 2012, directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina. The movie features some of the biggest names in the Philippine entertainment industry, including John Lloyd Cruz, Angel Locsin, and Edgar Mortiz. The movie revolves around a young woman named Ces (Angel Locsin), a UP alumnus who is seeking to make her mark as a journalist. She lands a job at a prestigious newspaper, where she meets the renowned columnist Macky (John Lloyd Cruz). Macky is known for his charm, wit, and his ability to melt the hearts of his female readers. Ces, on the other hand, is more pragmatic, and she takes her work seriously.

Despite their initial disagreements, the two develop a close friendship. Ces is intrigued by Macky's unconventional approach to romance, and she decides to use him as a subject for her next feature article. She pitches the idea to her editor, who gives her the go-ahead.

As Ces and Macky spend more time together, they develop a deeper understanding of each other's quirks, insecurities, and passions. Macky, in particular, opens up to Ces about his struggles with commitment, revealing that he had a traumatic experience as a child that has made him hesitant to settle down.

Ces uses Macky's stories and experiences to craft a compelling piece on modern romance, which ends up being a hit with readers. However, she soon realizes that her feelings towards Macky have grown beyond friendship. She tries to suppress her emotions, knowing that Macky isn't ready for a serious relationship.

The two eventually become an item, but things quickly take a turn for the worse when Macky's fear of commitment resurfaces. Ces is torn between her love for Macky and her desire for a stable, fulfilling relationship. She has to decide whether to take a risk on love, or play it safe and settle for a comfortable but unfulfilling life.

Despite its light-hearted premise, Unofficially Yours tackles some serious themes, including commitment issues, social expectations, and the idea of sacrificing individual desires for the sake of a relationship. The chemistry between Angel Locsin and John Lloyd Cruz is palpable, and their onscreen dynamic is both charming and relatable.

Edgar Mortiz, who plays Macky's mentor, provides some comic relief and helps to balance out the more serious aspects of the film. The supporting cast, which includes Zsa Zsa Padilla, Ronaldo Valdez, and Tonton Gutierrez, is also excellent.

Unofficially Yours was a critical and commercial success when it was released, grossing over 200 million pesos at the box office. It has since become a modern-day classic in the Filipino rom-com genre, and is widely regarded as one of the best films of John Lloyd Cruz and Angel Locsin's respective careers.
