The most anticipated comedy in showbiz these days will finally be shown nationwide tomorrow, Wednesday, November 11, 2009.
The movie, “Ang Tanging Pamilya (Marry-Go-Around)” topbilling Comedy Queen Ai-Ai delas Alas with former President Erap Estrada and some of televisions’s up and coming young stars, has been marketed so heavily on national television that even Bariles is eagerly awaiting its release in GenSan‘s Robinsons and KCC Cinemas.
What he and other Pinoys are much excited about however, is the presence of the mother of boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao who is now also a celebrity in her own right, Mommy Dionisia Pacquiao in the movie. Her role is a major one since she plays the mother of Sam Milby and the wife of Miguel Faustmann, the actor who essayed the role of “David Garcia” in the hit telenovela, “Tayong Dalawa”.
Star Cinema who produced the movie, brought all the movie’s performers and crew to General Santos City during the first week of September to shoot some scenes here. Apparently, this was in deference to Mommy Dionisia’s request to shoot all her scenes here at her beloved hometown.
And so they all flew in – all the members of the production crew, Director Wenn Deramas, Erap, Ai-ai, Sam Milby, Toni Gonzaga, Kaye Brosas, Candy Pangilinan, plus all the young actors and actresses who played Ai-ai and Erap’s children.
They shot at the Sts. Peter and Paul Parish Church (for the “PAMANHIKAN” of Sam Milby and Toni Gonzaga); at the East Asia Royale Hotel; at Paseo del Sol and in some of the major thoroughfares of the city (since Erap was playing the role of a jeepney driver).
Erap, on the other hand, took time to join the festivities of the 11th Tuna Festival happening at that time and gave the Keynote Speech during the culmination program at the GenSan Oval Plaza.
Here are some pics Bariles took at the Lagao church and some of the pics from the Paseo del Sol shoot, courtesy of Paolo Sunglao. Thanks Paolo. Now get your fill of Dionisia Pacquiao pictures below…

Oh my goodness!!! I can’t believe it. Ganyan na pala tlga kasikat si Mommy Dionisia? Ay sana may DVD na pagdating ko jan ang movie na yan para madadala ko dito pagbalik. I’m sure mapapatawa niya lahat ng OFWs dito.
Napakadaming fans ni Pacman dito e pra silang mga baliw at iiwanan ang mga asawa maghahanap ng Live na laban ni Pacman kahit saang sulok ng Bangkok pra lng mapanuod laban niya. AT gaya ng sabi ko “in na in” dito ang pacman-mommy dionisia jokes circulated thru emails.
