The movie altered the usual stereotype of a mistress having Maricel Soriano playing the other woman, while the sexy Angelica Panganibanis the wife.

On the other hand, Frances is clueless that TJ is married to her bestfriend.

What made this movie memorable? A comedy movie about the wife and the mistress turning into "BFFs," and the casting coup of the Comedy Queen and Megastar in a move.

Not before long, Kara successfully seduces Ram, even though she knows about his marriage. When Charmaine learns of the affair, she finds ways to fight for her husband's waning attention.

In previous movies, wives are always unfashionable and mistresses are always seductive. But in the movie, both women are seductive, sophisticated. 

Plus, who would ever forget the catfights between Anne Curtis and Cristine Reyes?

The Mistress gave the audience a peek into the "purity" of the intentions of the mistress. And, how she struggles to respond out of gratitude to her "man."
