"nako true ka jan direk. pina-hype lang 'tong movie na 'to kala ko naman pagkaganda. sus nakakadismaya"

"Hater lang ang dating. Lol"
"Halata tong director na toh walang alam. The story might be a cliche but for Asians who lives in the US like us it’s such an honor. Finally a movie in Hollywood with all Asian cast. Kaya tumahimik sya. Halata tuloy."
