John Lloyd Cruz has had some of the greatest collaborations with director Cathy Garcia Molina and as we celebrate the Blockbuster Director’s birthday, we’re looking back at the movies they’ve done together that have stood the test of time.
From flicks that could break your heart and flicks that will put it back together again, here’s a rundown of some of their best films through the years!
“A Very Special Love”
Ever since her college days, Laida (Sarah Geronimo) had had a crush on Miguel “Miggy” Montenegro. So right after her graduation, she decided to apply to his newly-established magazine, without knowing the horrors of working with an ill-tempered boss like him. Somehow, their mismatched personalities made them into a perfect pair.
Sarah and John Lloyd’s excellent acting have led to two more sequels to this film, “You Changed My Life” and “It Takes a Man a Woman.”
Watch this iconic trilogy here, here, and here.
“One More Chance” and “A Second Chance”
Falling in love with the same person for the second time? Asking for a second chance? You will definitely relate to Popoy (John Lloyd) and Basha’s (Bea Alonzo) love story in “One More Chance” and “A Second Chance.”
Seriously, nearly every one of us cried because of the heartbreaking lines and iconic scenes from these films and we have Direk Cathy to thank for every tear.

“Just the 3 of Us”
This 2016 rom-com marked the first movie team-up of John Lloyd (Uno Abusado) and Jennylyn Mercado (CJ Manalo).
It looked into the story of Uno and CJ, both of whom had careers in the aviation industry. Following a one night stand, they were forced to live together while struggling to cope with each other’s struggling personalities. After facing challenges, love prevailed.
It is one of Direk Cathy’s finest films, to date.

This 2012 film revolved around the lives of Macky Galvez (John Lloyd), a young man who suffered from depression after a failed relationship, and Ces Bricencio (Angel Locsin), a woman afraid of commitment. After crossing each other’s paths, they developed a casual sexual relationship and then the inevitable happened: one of them fell in love.
First released in 2012, “Unofficially Yours,” which was John Lloyd and Angel’s first movie pairing, and became a box office hit during its theatrical run.

“My Amnesia Girl”
Irene (Toni Gonzaga) suffered from amnesia after being left by Glen Apollo (John Lloyd) in the altar on their wedding day. Three years later, they have a chance meeting and Irene pretended to have amnesia to avoid a confrontation. Seeing a golden opportunity to undo his mistakes, Apollo attempted to win back Irene’s heart by reliving their best memories together. The challenges from the past hindered their love, but forgiveness won in the end.
Originally released in 2010, this was the top-grossing Filipino movie that year.
