Macky Galvez (John Lloyd Cruz) is a depressed young man recovering from a failed relationship. One night, Galvez meets Ces Bricenio (Angel Locsin), a modern-day girl who is afraid of commitment, and they have a one-night stand. Later on, Macky meets Ces again in his new job as a reporter for Manila Bulletin.
Molina brainstormed the story back in 2009. In 2011, Star Cinema offered the main protagonists to Cruz and Locsin after their primetime TV Series that aired on ABS-CBN, Imortal. ÜnOfficially Yours was first announced in the now defunct showbiz news program, SNN: Showbiz News Ngayon. The film's tentative title was I Honestly Love You and later changed to ÜnOfficially Yours. The film's principal photography started September 21, 2011 in Batangas and in the headquarters of the Manila Bulletin in Manila.
The full trailer was released during the previews of the Enteng Ng Ina Mo and Segunda Mano, films also produced by Star Cinema. The full trailer was televised on January 29, 2012 during Locsin and Cruz's guesting on the talk show, Gandang Gabi, Vice!. As a result, it became a worldwide trending topic on the social networking site, Twitter. The film became the front page cover of the February 15, 2012 issue of the Manila Bulletin during its premiere day.
The film's official soundtrack is "If You Asked Me To" originally sung by Patti LaBelle, and was covered by Erik Santos and Angeline Quinto. The song's music video was released on Star Cinema's official YouTube account.
ÜnOfficially Yours received generally positive reviews from local movie critics. Ria Limjap of Spot.ph praised that the movie is "entertaining and funny and poignant." Maureen Belmonte of Manila Bulletin said the movie is "worth watching" because it deals with modern-day themes. Noel Torre of Philippine Daily Inquirer praised the performance of the film's lead actors.
According to ABS-CBN News, the film opened with an P18.5 million gross nationwide. The film grossed P71.5 million at 140 screens on its first weekend of release beating out Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance in the Philippine Box Office On its second week, the film dropped 58.3% and grossed 29.8 million, bringing it a total of 113.5 million gross in two weeks. The movie's gross income reached 144 million in the third week of showing. After a month, the film had grossed P157.25 million at the box office.
