Majority of the shows and movies on Netflix are international, so it’s a good thing that these days, more and more Filipino movies are being added to the streaming site. It’s also comforting to see that these local movies trend on Netflix.
However, aside from these new movies, Netflix also has a collection of Filipino films from the early 2000s and 2010s, and some of them are blockbusters that a lot of people went to the cinemas for. Take a trip down memory lane with these high grossing Filipino films on Netflix and let them be a reminder of the times when life was much less difficult.
Ang Tanging Ina (2003)
Before we had the iconic sibling squad from “Four Sisters and a Wedding” we had “Ang Tanging Ina” in the early 2000s. This comedy/drama sheds some light on what its like for a single mom to raise a family. This movie also had its sequels
No Other Woman (2011)
This movie about romanticized cheating broke box office records at the time of its release. It was so successful that the cast and crew of “No Other Woman” received monetary rewards from the studio.
“Sisterakas” was the highest-grossing film in the year 2012. The three leading stars were Vice Ganda, Kris Aquino, and Ai-Ai delas Alas so the three big names really pulled movie-goers into this comedy film at the time of the Metro Manila Film Festival.
Four Sisters and a Wedding (2013)
This movie is still something people quote and make memes about up until today. “Four Sisters and a Wedding” features an iconic cast and an equally iconic storyline that Filipinos return to again and again.
Diary ng Panget (2014)
“Diary ng Panget” is the film debut of the love team JaDine. This was one of their first projects together and this started the whole JaDine craze that would eventually lead to the both of them getting together in real life.
She’s Dating the Gangster (2014)
“She’s Dating the Gangster” is one of KathNiel’s early films. This was released during the height of the love team’s popularity so this coming-of-age movie was definitely a blockbuster.
A Second Chance (2015)
Unfortunately, the iconic “One More Chance” starring Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz is not on Netflix. However, the sequel to that film is up on the streaming site so you can catch up on Popoy and Basha’s married life and see how they’re faring after the events of the first film.
