Host and comedian Vhong Navarro has a lot to be thankful for these days. Apart from being very much visible on TV, the rape and attempted rape charges against him have been dismissed by the DOJ and now he’s also back on the big screen to present a brand of comedy that only him can deliver.

Vhong topbills Unli Life, a Regal Entertainment Inc.’s offering, and the production outfit’s official entry to the forthcoming Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino film festival, which runs from Aug. 15 to 21.

Just last year, Vhong entertained the audience with two comedy films, Mang Kepweng Returns and the blockbuster hit with Lovi Poe, Woke Up Like This. 

 The cast of 'Unli Life' led by comedian Vhong Navarro. The Regal Films offering is an official entry to Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino.

With Unli Life, the comedian promises the same kind of impeccable comic timing and witty dialogues as he portrays a man who is given a chance to mend the breakup with his girlfriend, played by Teresita ‘Winwyn’ Marquez, by going back in time through the help of a magic whiskey, called “wishkey.” 

By drinking “wishkey,” Vhong says that his character is transported to different time periods, such as the Dinosaur Era, Magellan, and the ‘70s Era, in an effort to correct his mistakes and prevent her girlfriend from breaking up with him in the current time. 

The film tackles how much one is willing to go great lengths to get back that person he loves the most and what one is willing to do just to preserve it. 

Meanwhile, after making the country proud by being the first Filipina contestant and eventually crowned Reina Hispanoamericana 2017, Unli Life marks Teresita’s comeback to acting. It also marks her first major role and as a leading in the movies. Teresita, together with her fellow beauty queens from Miss World Philippines, signed up with Regal Entertainment, Inc. last October 2017. 

Unli Life is directed by Miko Livelo, whose credentials include being the writer and director of the 2013 indie film Blue Bustamante and as a writer for number of television series.
