The film company then replaced Perez with Sam Concepcion. In June 2011, Casino was originally tied to the film. However, in July, he was pulled out and was replaced by Enrique Gil. According to Star Cinema, the change in the lineup is prompted by their desire to experiment with different combinations for Bernardo and Montes. Casino had initially worked with Bernardo and Montes in Mara Clara.

    Critical response

    On a film review done by Noel Orsal of Philippine Entertainment Portal he quoted, "The typical Filipino film is at home in portraying families. It brings out one of the best dramatic scenes and emphatic dialogues primarily because relationships within the family can relate to. Conflicts and dysfunction between parent and child or among siblings would always find an audience connecting to a particular character over another."

    Box office

    The film opened at first place with an P18 million within its first week surpassing 50 First Dates and Blended in Philippine cinemas, according to Box Office Mojo. On its second week, the film grossed an estimated P4 million, having a total gross receipt of P25.7 million. The film was shown in theaters for only two weeks because of the new Star Cinema film Wedding Tayo, Wedding Hindi.
