Sequels are meant to serve movie corporations more than the viewers. Banking on the fandom built by the successful first films, movie productions would often release an underdeveloped storyline for the sole purpose of profit. Many of us are lured to take a bite of One More Chance’s prequel with a promise that the movie experience will be new and equally rewarding. After watching the film, expectations were exceeded as A Second Chance took a path different from many pop films in the market today. It did not content itself in pleasing the loyal viewers but it elevated the discussion into marital life, financial struggles, and family building. As a result, the audience were gifted with a more critical discussion while maintaining the romance and kilig in the story.
