Star Cinema recently released the movie trailer and poster to the third installment of the "Tanging Ina Series" entitled, "Ang Tanging Ina Mo, Last Na 'To" headed by the blockbuster tandems of Ai-Ai delas Alas, Eugene Domingo, and Director Wenn Deramas. It is remembered that the first "Ang Tanging Ina" series was shown way back in 2002, which introduced the character of Ina, as played by Ai-Ai delas Alas. Ina is blessed with 12 children from her three departed husbands in the first installment of the film. After the huge success on the big screen, the movie, "Ang Tanging Ina" became a hit comedy program (sitcom) on late Sunday night primetime television.
After 8 long years of doing the the "Tanging Ina" franchise, Eugene Domingo reprises her role as the ever-loyal, best friend forever, Rowena, who is now a well-off lady and willing to start a new family of her own. In the series of "Tanging Ina" movies, also in the television series, Ina is always seen with her long time best friend, Rowena. From being a best friend from the slums, to being the president's personal assistant, Rowena (Eugene Domingo) remained single, until this final movie installment, which she (Rowena) deserves the most.
The "Tanging Ina" franchise has several spin-offs during the course of 8 years. All of them stars Ai-Ai delas Alas which includes "Ang Cute Ng Ina Mo" (2007), "Ang Tanging Ina Nyong Lahat" (2008), and "Ang Tanging Pamilya: A Marry Go Round" (2009). Of all the franchises, Eugene Domingo is not seen together with Ai-Ai delas Alas in the movie, "Ang Tanging Pamilya: A Marry Go Round". Both "Ang Cute ng Ina Mo" and "Ang Tanging Pamilya" are separate and different stories from the "Ang Tanging Ina" series, however, similarities may be found because of several movie elements such as that in the title, plot, casts, and the director of the film. All of the movies mentioned were directed by Wenn V. Deramas.
