Simple Girl vs. Preview Girl (Part 2)
Posted on

No Other Woman is about a love triangle between a young married (childless) couple (Derek Ramsay + Cristine Reyes) and a jetskiing resort world heiress (Anne Curtis).
Derek plays Ram Escaler whose day job is Artistic Director of uglyfurniture.com.

Derek Ramsey

He is married to Sharmaine, a simple girl housewife who crochets on her free time (Cristine Reyes).

Cristine Reyes

The couple live in a gaudy, gilded house, along with Sharmaine’s family. Her father looks like a truck driver and her mother is a very simian-looking Carmi Martin. One wonders what the family business is.
While the whole house may have been decorated by April Boy Regino, luckily, Ram and Sharmaine’s bedroom remain in good taste.
One day, a very gay designer walks into Ram’s showroom to place a big order of furniture for a new resort owned by Tirso Cruz (not the third, but the Pip).
Ram gets to fly out into the island/resort to meet the boss (Pip) who turns out to be his father’s old frienemy. Here it is revealed that Ram has real baggage as he is estranged from his loser father.
During his free time, Ram dives into the water, where the jetskiing heiress, Kara Zalderiaga (Anne Curtis) almost hits him. For some reason, she chooses to dive into the water, where she loses her bikini top.

Anne Curtis

Fortunately, the bikini top is conveniently floating very near to Ram. He fishes this out of the water, while Kara encourages him to put it on her. (Here starts the grossfest. Sorry but I’m one of the minority who doesn’t find Derek cute. I find him short, dark, and bald. Plus the whole bikini top scene is so Pinoy komiks—cringe!!)
They meet again at the boss’s office where Ram finds out that the girl he flirted with in the water is actually the boss’s daughter (read: Tirso). It doesn’t hurt that she’s dressed like a Preview cover girl 24/7.

Cristine Reyes

Through Kara’s help, Ram gets the green light to design and manufacture furniture for the resort.
Because of this, the two have to meet up and work together. This includes teaching Kara how to play golf in a bathing suit.
During one of their business meetings in their swim suits in the water at sunset, Ram informs Kara that he’s married. She replies in the tone of Friends With Benefits: no problem, no falling in love, now kiss me you fool (Cringefest #2!!).
Meanwhile, simple housewife Sharmaine has dialed too many missed calls to her husband. She decides to go to the laundry section of her house to inspect his garments, where she finds the wedding ring inside one of his trousers.

Cristine Reyes

He is so in trouble!! The suspicious housewife further investigates and opens his agenda where he conveniently left a Post-It note of his dinner date at 7th High. This is where Simple Girl goes to meet Preview Girl in the restroom, and where the two lovers are nearly caught in the act of a dinner date—to which I say: if you’re having an affair, you do not have dinner at Bonifacio High Street, you go to St. Lucia East.

(To be continued….napagod ako)

Madam Chuva, I think your narration (with all its sarcasm) is way better than seeing the movie.

When Anne lost her bikini top… it was weird because she was wearing a cover up when she was jet skiing but when she fell in the water and raised her arms to let Derek put her top back on, the cover up was gone. Pati yon natanggal? haha

May ka-trabaho ako before and her guy cheated on her. How did she find out? Yung office namin dati sa Galleria and the guy kept bringing his kabit there! So ang dami nang nakakakita sa guy with kabit and girl would confront him but syempre deny to death si lalaki. Finally, one afternoon, sa KFC, habang nakapila si girl, nakita niya with her own eyes yung guy niya with the kabit! Major scandal!!! Screaming fest! Sabi in girl, “Why do you have to bring her here? Everyone I know works here!” and guy said, “Hindi naman ikaw may-ari ng Galleria!”… Read more »
