My Bebe Love #KiligPaMore : Highest Opening Day Grosser

Metro Manila Film Festival entry, "My Bebe Love" has recorded a whopping PHP 60.46 million (approx. USD 1.28 million) earnings on its opening day.

The movie, starring Vic Sotto, Ai-Ai delas Alas, as well as the popular tandem AlDub, Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza, broke previous record held by the 2014 MMFF entry, Vice Ganda's "The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin", which opened at PHP 53 million (USD 1.12 million), according to GMA News.

From Metro Manila alone, over PHP 33 million was accumulated, while another 27 million were from different provinces.

Although the movie marks the reunion between delas Alas and Sotto, who worked previously together in the movie, "Ang Enteng Ng Ina Mo", many believed that the record-breaking earning was thanks to the popularity of its younger stars, Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza.

According to the famous Wiki, My Bebe Love: #KiligPaMore, produced by Octo Arts Films, M - Zet Productions, APT Entertainment, GMA Films, and Ai-Ai's MEDA Productions, is a 2015 Filipino romantic comedy film directed by Jose Javier Reyes starring Ai-Ai de las Alas and Vic Sotto with Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza. This film is an official entry to the 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival.

My Bebe Love is the reunion film of Ai-Ai delas Alas and Vic Sotto after their film Enteng ng Ina Mo, which was also Metro Manila Film Festival entry in 2011, aside from being the first film of the love team of Richards and Mendoza (collectively known as AlDub). This is also the first film of delas Alas under her own film production MEDA Productions. This film was released in the Philippines and was internationally screened in selected cinemas in San Francisco and Los Angeles in the United States, Melbourne and Sydney in Australia, and Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

This film holds the record for highest opening day gross for all Filipino films with ₱60.4 million.

Pauleen Luna, an online entertainment site, gave the film one and a half stars out of five, stating that "the film strings together its stars’ endorsements and roughly molds them into the shape of a movie, narrative playing second fiddle to the impulse to promote brands."

Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) praised the chemistry between Mendoza and Richards stating that "Alden and Maine, on the other hand, act like the more mature pair. They temper those kilig moments with more getting-to-know-you scenes that can put their elders’ wham-bham way of dating to shame." PEP further highlighted improvements in Mendoza's acting as "she acquits herself well for a newbie in the movies. Maine's eyes reflect a whole range of emotions: joy, disappointment, shock, irritation, etc."
