Beauty and the Bestie (2015)







For an important case, a policeman needs the help of his former best friend to impersonate the daughter of a foreign dignitary in a beauty pageant.

The story focuses on Erika (Vice Ganda), who is not making nearly enough money running a photography studio to support his family. The problem is exacerbated when his young nephew is diagnosed with a rare condition that may lead to blindness. And that's when his former best friend Emman (Coco Martin) suddenly shows up. Emman works for the Elite Super Secret Task Force, a spy agency tasked with the security of an upcoming beauty pageant. Erika happens to look exactly like Ms. Uzeklovakia, who was abducted by terrorists led by an unnamed Japanese yakuza (Jacky Woo) and his Korean right-hand man, Jin Jhong (Ryan Bang) .

Emman asks Erika to pretend to be Ms. Uzeklovakia while the agency searches for the real deal. Erika is still nursing some hurt from the way he and Emman ended things, but he ends up taking on the task in exchange for help in caring for her family. Aside from all this, Erika's younger sister Abi (Nadine Lustre) and Emman's half-brother Tristan (James Reid) meet and end up falling in love. Erika must deal with his feelings for his former best friend while fending off terrorists and dealing with his worry for Abi's budding romance.

Before the Q/A portion of the coronation night, Erika encounters the real Ms. Uzeklovakia after she manages to escape from her kidnappers which she was disgusted from his scent until she was intercepted by Emman and his friends in order to secure her from the terrorists. With that Erika continues to pose as Ms. Uzeklovakia until he wins the pageant. It was soon interrupted by the terrorists who are attempting to kill the fake which is Erika and the terrorist leader manage to kidnap him thinking he was Ms. Uzeklovakia. Emman eventually intercepts the helicopter as he and the terrorist leader fight as Emman manages to kill him in time as Erika falls onto the ledge of the helicopter which he takes his hand finally reconciles their friendship until he drops Erika's hand and falls into the ocean which Emman follows him.

When Emman attempts to make CPR towards Erika after falling each other into the ocean, he was still alive and soon reunites with his family.

After the incident, the father of Ms. Uzeklovakia was happy that his daughter won the contest thanks to Erika's efforts in pretending as herself after she returns to their home country and reuniting with her father and he congratulates both Emman and Erika for rescuing her as both of them make their thankful speech.
