LOOK: 2007 Box Office hit ‘One More Chance’ Now a Novel

Practically every Pinoy has seen the hit romantic movie One More Chance. The unforgettable love story of Popoy, played by John Lloyd Cruz, and Basha, portrayed by Bea Alonzo, was a box office hit in 2007 under the direction of award-winning director Cathy Garcia-Molina and released under Star Cinema.

If you still can’t get enough of the movie which started the famous ‘hugot’ lines in Philippine cinema, ABS-CBN Publishing has released a novel adaptation written by Juan Miguel Sevilla, based on the movie’s screenplay by Vanessa Valdez and Carmi Raymundo.

One More Chance is a story of two sweethearts who, like all other lovers, hope to share their lives together forever. But Basha grew tired of Popoy controlling her life, and broke up with him.

The book, according to ABS-CBN news, is divided into chapters, which features the hugot lines made popular by the film.

“Alam mo ba ‘yung three month rule, ha?! Lahat ng nagmahal at nasaktan alam ‘yun! Kailangan mo muna maghintay ng three months bago ka magka-boyfriend ulit! Ba’t ba kating-kati kang palitan ako?! May dalawang linggo pa ‘ko bash!”

“Well it’s an exciting time Bash, but at the end of the day, even though things have changed, some things remained the same, di ba? Kaya dapat wag mo kakalimutan ang lumang ikaw.”

“Minsan, it’s better for two people to break up.. So they can grow up. It takes grown ups to make relationships work.”

“Baka kaya tayo iniiwan ng mga taong mahal natin, kase baka merong bagong darating na mas OK, na mas mamahalin tayo, yung taong hindi tayo sasaktan at paaasahin, yung nag-iisang taong magtatama ng mali sa buhay natin, nang lahat ng mali sa buhay mo.”

“Ang totoo hanggang ngayon umaasa pa rin ako na sabihin mong ako pa rin. Ako na lang. Ako na lang ulit.”

“She loved me at my worst, you had me at my best. At binalewala mo lang lahat yon. And chose to break my heart.”

“Lecheng shampoo yan hindi pa ko tinuluyan! TAKE ME LOOOOORD!!”

The book will be released next week in all bookstores nationwide.
