It started as a segment in the Philippine’s longest-running and still top-rating gag show, Bubble Gang. Then it has become the most popular joke in the country, with almost everyone creating their own “pick-up” lines. Indeed, Boy Pick Up’s character has made another mark in the world of Philippine entertainment.
With a very good comedian like Ogie Alcasid portraying Boy Pick Up, there’s no doubt that this character will be loved by the Filipino audience. True enough, as a result of the overwhelming acceptance of the Pinoy televiewers, GMA Films and Regal Films decided to produce a movie for Boy Pick Up.

I had the chance to meet the major cast of the movie during their last shooting day, and took the opportunity to interview them. Ogie Alcasid is such a nice person – he can’t stop talking about the movie, a solid proof of how proud and excited he is of his latest project. He was too kind to even tell us the movie’s whole plot!!
In Bubble Gang, you just see Boy Pick Up giving his signature “pick-up” lines with random “pickapistas” who challenge him. In the movie, you’ll get to know Boy Pick Up even more as you follow Boy Pick Up’s life behind the “pick-up arena” – his job, his family, his lovelife, who he is behind the champion “pickapista.”
Playing Boy Pick Up’s love interest is the gorgeous Solenn Heussaff, who is also very thrilled to be part of the movie. She’s certainly a revelation as she delivers her charming and funny lines, while maintaining her high-end, it-girl image. You’ll definitely live her more after watching her in the movie.
Another reason to watch the movie is Boy Pick Up’s main villain, who will be played by multi-awarded actor, Dennis Trillo. Dennis once again shows his versatility in the movie, as he plays the major rival of Boy Pick Up in the Pick-up Arena. It’s his first time to be a main villain in a comedy movie, and that made him as excited as the rest of the cast. The movie will show how his character developed the hate and insecurity he has for Boy Pick Up.
Of course, also in the film are noted and well-loved characters in the Boy Pick Up segment in Bubble Gang – Neneng B (Neneng Banat) played by the sexy siren Sam Pinto, and Boy Back Up played by Eri Neeman. They will be playing the same characters that made you love them, and will let you appreciate them even more. The hilarious duo Moymoy Palaboy (James and Roadfill) are also part of the movie, and an additional cast is another uprising actress, the beautiful Sarah Lahbati.
