According to CEB, Dan Villegas has “effortlessly mastered the art of unravelling beautiful love stories” and is at his best again with ‘Exes Baggage‘.

As to the films lead stars, the Cinema Evaluation Board described Angelica Panganiban and Carlo Aquino as “incredibly capable”, whose rapport and chemistry on screen makes the romantic story as real as can be.
“The pair effectively and convincingly play out the complexities of young love without being lachrymose or cheesy,” the CEB said.
The CEB also commended the editing, cinematography, production design, and musical scoring of ‘Exes Baggage’.
In summary, the Cinema Evaluation Board described ‘Exes Baggage’ with these words:
“The excellent direction coupled with the wonderful script and the casting of Angelica and Carlo in an almost two-character film all complement each other. The two leads are so comfortable and natural with each other and they have great chemistry.”
