Crazy Beautiful You
Mae Cruz-Alviar

Crazy Beautiful You is a 2015 Filipino teen romantic comedy-drama film

Sometimes, though we don't expect to find love, it's the one that finds us. In "Crazy Beautiful You," we
are introduced to Jackie (Kathryn Bernardo), whose rebellious spirit forces her mother (Lorna Tolentino)
to take her in a medical mission in Tarlac in hopes that she'd turn for the better. There, Jackie meets a
jolly lad named Kiko (Daniel Padilla), who will make sure she gets all her tasks done. In the middle of his
mission, he and Jackie will discover something crazy... and beautiful.

- A spoiled young girl is forced to tag along with her mom on a medical mission in Tarlac. There she
meets a young man from a different world who shows her another side of life.

What I have learn from the movie is that Forgiveness is not just given to others. It is also given to
oneself. When we forgive we set ourselves free.
When you love… you do everything for it. You fight for it. Living a great life is a choice that we make
despite the painful things that has happened to us. Sometimes we need to help others for us to be able
to heal and find ourselves. Pictures are gifts because they remind us of the memories & the story
behind it. All of us have been hurt & has hurt others as well. We are all Wounded Healers. True Wealth
& Happiness cannot be found in the riches & possessions we have. It can only be found in the heart
where fulfilment & significance lies. The best kind of love is not selfish, it is selfless. Each one of us has
a story of disaster but we are all Crazy Beautiful People and that makes us one of a kind.

Jackie (Kathryn Bernardo) is a troubled, nineteen-year-old wild child, much to the dismay of her separated parents.
Her only interest lies within photography, and she hopes that she can one day move to New York to study and
escape her complicated life. One night, Jackie is thrown in jail after crashing her car while drag racing with some
other teenagers. Finally fed up of Jackie's reckless antics, her father sends her off to spend time with her mother
(Lorna Tolentino) on a medical mission camp in Tarlac. Both her parents are hopeful that the experience will
straighten her out. Jackie however, has no intention of following through with orders and tries to sneak out of the
house, only to be stopped by her older brother who was sent by their mother to collect her.
During the car trip, Jackie points out that she never got over the fact that her mother didn't take her with her when she
left her father. Jackie convinces her brother to stop for a bathroom break at a marketplace where she attempts to
escape yet again. Here she meets the lively Kiko (Daniel Padilla), who helps her retrieve her mobile phone from a
thief. She offers to pay Kiko to take her to the nearest bus terminal so she can head back to Manila, however is
shocked when he takes her to a hotel where her mother is waiting for her. It is revealed that Kiko knew who Jackie
was all along and is one of the coordinators for the volunteer medical mission. He had been assigned by both
Jackie's mother and the mayor of the town (who is also his father), to act as Jackie's escort and guide on the trip.
While at the hotel, in one last bid to escape, Jackie manages to trick Kiko and proceeds to take his car. It is only
when she's driving for some time that she discovers Kiko's younger brother is in the car. She drops him off intending
to leave him, however guilt gets the better of her and she stays with him until Kiko finds them and takes them back.
Later on, Kiko is seen bailing his carefree mother out of jail. At the mayor's house, Kiko tells Jackie that while the
mayor is his father he does not live there as he has a different family. He however, lives with his mother and three
younger siblings, acting as head of the family. It is here also that Jackie becomes acquainted with Marcus (Inigo
Pascual), Kiko's brother, via video call. Marcus, currently studying abroad, had first noticed Jackie after seeing her in
Manila while she was drag racing, and has been infatuated with her ever since.
Back at the hotel, Jackie's mother makes a deal with her that if she completes the full period of the medical mission,
she will fund Jackie's studies in New York and give her the freedom she desperately seeks. The next day, Kiko takes
Jackie to the medical mission in a remote mountain community where she initially finds it difficult to adjust to the
conditions. After her mother arrives at the medical mission, Jackie becomes visibly upset after seeing her being
openly affectionate with the children she is treating. Jackie runs off, and her mother follows after which she demands
to know the reason why she was the one left behind. Her mother reveals that she made multiple attempts to take
Jackie with her, however her father prevented any previous contact. Jackie voices her struggle with growing up
without her mother and expresses her inability to forgive her. She walks off, determined to finally leave once and for
all, only to be followed by Kiko.
Kiko scolds Jackie for her constant wallowing in self-pity when others are suffering too. Kiko then receives an frantic
call from his younger brother that his sister is bleeding for an unknown reason. Jackie drives Kiko back and helps out
his sister, after learning that she had just gotten her period. Kiko thanks Jackie for her help and takes her to the bus
terminal, however she has a change of heart and goes back to the medical mission to fulfil her deal for her New York
Jackie begins to put more effort into the mission and becomes closer to the people of the community. She also
manages to patch things up with her mother and soon, she and Kiko find themselves falling in love. Marcus returns
from the U.S early and visits the medical mission. He and Kiko end up competing for Jackie's affection, and Kiko
decides to give Jackie up out of love for his brother. Jackie directly and firmly rejects Marcus' advances, because she
is in love with Kiko. Hurt that Kiko would give her up so easily, she confronts him for not fighting for love and leaves
for Manila. Meanwhile, Marcus confronts Kiko for always being the better of the two of them and a fight ensues,
broken up by their father and his wife. Kiko finally talks to his father and asks him to fight for him too, because he is
also his son. Heartbroken, Jackie and Kiko have both gone their separate ways.
The mayor finally decides to establish more of a father-son relationship with Kiko, while Jackie has decided not to go
to New York but to help her mother in her charitable works. Marcus and Kiko reconcile and they go to Manila to find
Jackie again. Kiko calls Jackie and manages to find her in Manila. He admits his feelings for her and the two become
a couple. The movie ends in a romantic shot of Jackie and Kiko happily.
I have not included here the scenes for me not to be a spoiler but i’m sure when you see the movie yourself you’ll realised and
remember these lessons plus i’m sure you’ll have your own list as well.
