JOHN LLOYD CRUZ, BEA ALONZO Reunite & Read Full Movie Script Live!
Ai dela Cruz
Imagine attending a simple outdoor screening of One More Chance on Valentine's Day.
Then Bea Alonzo comes out.
And John Lloyd Cruz follows.
You scream your lungs out upon seeing the Popoy and Basha actors in the flesh, only to find out they have another surprise in store—a live reading of the FULL script of another one of your favorite movies, That Thing Called Tadhana.
Believe it or not, that actually happened last night at an art fair in Makati.

Seated on stools with just their microphones and scripts in front of them, John Lloyd and Bea performed to a small crowd of extremely lucky moviegoers.
As the One More Chance stars gave life to Anthony and Mace's unforgettable hugot lines from the 2014 genre-pioneering film, the That Thing Called Tadhana writer and director herself, Antoinette Jadaone, narrated the other parts of the script with them onstage.
"Bakit ba kayong mga babae, guwapong-guwapo kayo kay John Lloyd, e parang normal lang naman siya," the actor gamely read the famous line about himself, drawing loud cheers from the crowd, to which Bea replied, "Wow, hiyang-hiya daw sa 'yo si John Lloyd!"
But the audience screamed even louder after his next line that coincidentally pertained to Bea's controversial ex-boyfriend who allegedly ghosted her last year: "Totoo naman, e! Maiintindihan ko pa kung si Gerald Anderson 'yan!"
The actress was a 100% sport about it though and just laughed with everyone else. "Bakit mo ba kasi sinulat 'yon," she asked Direk Tonet, going off-script for a brief moment, before continuing.
Another highlight of the night was when Bea sang the movie's theme song, "Where Do Broken Hearts Go" by Whitney Houston, as part of the karaoke scene where the original actors—JM De Guzman and Angelica Panganiban—tried to sing their heartaches away.
Speaking of Angelica, remember her hilarious "I don't need tissue, stop judging me" line after a flight stewardess kept on giving her tissue while she was ugly-crying over a classic Filipino movie aboard a plane? Yup, that was One More Chance, which makes last night a truly mind-blowing crossover between two iconic films.
