Film Review: “…And came her romance with Romeo Vasquez, boosting both their stocks at the box office (their two starrers, Nagaapoy Na Damdamin and Pulot-Gata where Vilma did her own wet style, were big moneymakers). The tandem, although it did help Vilma, actually helped Vasquez more in reestablishing himself at the box office (without Vilma, his movies with other leading ladies hardly create any ripple). In Susan Kelly, Edad 20, Vilma played a notorious-woman role that required her to wear skimpy bikini briefs in some scenes, following it up with two giant sizzlers (Dalawang Pugad Isang Ibon and Madakit Masarap Ang Umibig) that catapulted her as the newest Bold Queen…” – Ricardo F.

“…Pulot-Gata was one of the several hit films of Romeo Vasquez and Vilma Santos. And one of the forgettable ones. It exploits their real and reel life relationships. Despite the film’s poor material, you can see their screen chemistry in several light comedic scenes. Ruel Vernal’s fight scene with Vasques can be shortened or edited out. Ditto with Susane Gonzales scenes in the hotel room, attempting to seduce back her ex-fiance. In addition to some comedic scenes that can be edited, Vilma’s dramatic scene near end, can also be shortened. A more watchable film of Vi and Romeo were “Dalawang Pugad Isang Ibon” and “Nag-aapoy na Damdamin.” After watching “Pulot-Gata, Puede Kaya?” (literally means, “Sweet-Coconut, Can it be?” which can be assumed about the May-December affair of Santos and Vasquez), one can clearly say, “YES” to the real relationship of Vi and Romeo but NO to this films…” – RV (READ MORE)
