MANILA - The romantic comedy film "Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo?" starring Kim Chiu and Xian Lim has earned P100 million less than three weeks since it opened in theaters.

Released in theaters on July 31, the movie tells the story of Sandy (Chiu), who, after going through a break-up, is left to ponder why she feels unwanted.

Matters turn worse for Sandy when she is laid off by her company, under the leadership of its new bachelor CEO, Alex Prieto (Lim).

Realizing his mistake when employees belatedly put in a good word for Sandy, Alex hires her back, and the two start forming an unlikely friendship.

In a love story about "the ugly duckling in all of us and how we turn into someone worth loving," Alex at one point even offers Sandy a make-over so she will no longer cry over a failed relationship.

Directed by Joyce Bernal, "Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo?" also stars Kean Cipriano and Tonton Gutierrez.

The Star Cinema film is the first full-length movie of the popular love team.

"Bakit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo" is part of Star Cinema's 20th anniversary movie offerings.
