I was channel surfing this morning and ABS-CBN Channel 2 was showing Catch Me… I’m In Love. I’m actually not aware of this film until today since I’m not a big fan of its lead actors. This 2011 romantic film stars Gerald Anderson and Sarah Geronimo working together for the first time. Sarah plays Roan, a hopeless romantic who assigned to accompany the Presidential son played by Anderson on an Immersion trip. The trip led both in learning more about each other and soon enough, love ensues despite their differences.
Sarah Geronimo reminds me so much of Regine Velasquez. She has this very charismatic attack on each role given to her and has this great comedic timing. She’s indeed very funny and just as effective as her role in A Very Special Love and You Change My Life. The biggest revelation for me though, is Gerald Anderson. Wow! I never thought that Gerald could act this well! I always thought of him as that teenage boy playing the love interest of Kim Chui since the first Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition. Boy was I so wrong about it! I love his portrayal of a nonchalant, happy-go-lucky presidential son. In this film, he somehow reminded me of the young Chris O’ Donnell in Mad Love and Scent of a Woman. In my opinion, Gerald was the torchbearer of this film!
