“We have lost our ways, my dear brothers and sisters in the screening committee,” Robin quipped.

He pointed out that he will only believe the words of the actor if they came from someone who has done a lot of decent movies.
“Ang reaction ko lang diyan... Sana, kung nanggagaling sa bunganga ng taong nakagawa ng matinong pelikula, maniniwala ako,” the director stated.
“Not from Robin Padilla, excuse me!” he added.
