“This Time I’ll Be Sweeter” is so much different from the pair’s recently-concluded soap in that the film requires from Barbie and Ken much deeper range without sacrificing moment of kilig, joy and laughter.
In the movie, Erika (Barbie) and Tristan (Ken) are classmates in college. Tristan is considered a campus crush due to his skills in swimming. He and Erika grow close to each other but then the latter is left heartbroken as they part ways.
Erika then graduates as Cum Laude and succeeds as filed reporter. Tristan, on the other hand, ends up working for their family-owned airline company. Their paths cross once again when an incident involving Tristan’s family and Erika career come into play. The call of duty prompts Erika to communicate with Tristan for a follow-up on a story she did.
That incident brings them closer again with Erika throwing in help so that Tristan may recover form a misfortune. But is Erika prepared to be hurt again? Can love be sweeter the second time around?
Moviegoers will definitely remember Barbie’s “Dalawang bese mo na akong sinaktan, sobrang tanga ko na kung gagawin ko pang tatlo di ba?!” scene long after they have left the theater.
