10 Pinoy comedy movies that can show you how to party at the beach
It’s officially summer! Many of us are dying to hit the beach as soon as possible, but while we’re still stuck with responsibilities, i.e. work and school, we can only daydream of getting sand on our toes. And what better way to fuel those daydreams than be inspired by the movies, particularly classic Pinoy comedy films. As anyone who loves watching local films knows, no Pinoy comedy film is complete without a song and dance number at the beach or by the pool. We have compiled and chosen 10 musical beach scenes that you might want to recreate on your next vacation. (We’re half-kidding, but bursting into song-and-dance at the beach seriously looks fun!)
