It’s time to invite a couple of your friends over, grab some beers and reflect on your past (or present) relationships because Pinoy blockbuster favorites, “The Hows of Us” and “Exes Baggage”, are now available on Netflix!

Released just a month apart from each other last 2018, both movies made hundreds of millions in the box office.

“Exes Baggage” is an onscreen reunion of childhood stars Angelica Panganiban and Carlo Aquino. Directed by Dan Villegas, the plot of the movie revolves around ex-lovers Pia and Nix, dealing with their own baggage while in a relationship, then eventually, being each other’s baggage in the latter part of the story. The movie made Php 21.6 million on its first day then Php 207 million in nine days, breaking records during that time.

“The Hows of Us” is a Star Cinema-produced movie, directed by Cathy Garcia Molina, starring premier box office love team, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla. The story is about a long-term couple, Primo and George, working on the “hows” of their relationship. The movie made a whopping Php 800 million, which is now the second top-grossing film of all time.

Be reminded: both movies are tearjerkers, so don’t forget to bring tissues!
