Ang Tanging Ina Mo (Last na 'To!) (lit."Your Only Mom (The Last One!)") is a 2010 Filipino dramedy film starring Ai-Ai de las Alas, Eugene Domingo, and certain others. An official entry for the 2010 Metro Manila Film Festival, it was supposed to be the last film of Ang Tanging Ina film series; however, a crossover sequel between Enteng Kabisote and Ang Tanging Ina entitled Enteng Ng Ina Mo co-starring Ai-Ai de las Alas and Vic Sotto were released. It was a co-production between APT Entertainment, M-ZET Production, OctoArts Films and Star Cinema.

The crossover sequel was indirectly confirmed by Kris Aquino in her talk show Kris TV after discussing some of the entries of 2011 Metro Manila Film Festival including her film entry Segunda Mano which was also distributed by Star Cinema.


A few months after Ina left the position as the President of the Philippines, she is back in the media limelight as she releases a book of her life in her journey as a mother to her children and as a mother to the people of the Philippines. Ina now lives a simple life with her beloved children, together with her long-time best friend, Rowena.

After an accident at President Ren's wedding, Ina found herself doing an X-ray and medical examinations inside a hospital. The doctor who examined Ina's health told her that she is suffering from brain tumor and only has 6 to 8 months to live due to the fractures found in her skull and some complications found in her medical results. Upon knowing this, Ina is having a hard time telling her children that she only has a few months to live. Ina is also having visions of her departed husbands—or so it would appear at first. Ina was very sick of her children fighting. She thought Juan, her first son, was in New Zealand but he's actually living on the streets. Pip had a daughter named Monay. And Tudis keeps fighting with her husband, Troy, because of her daughter being with another man. When Ina's children knew about her sickness, they were heartbroken and decided to change for the better, especially Juan and Tri. When yet another accident occurred, Ina was rushed to the hospital, where Rowena was due give birth, Six and Ten-Ten came, but Por was not there. Ina thought that the light that she saw was God, who was about to take her. But it was actually a light from a shooting. Then, another doctor claimed that Ina was not sick. Ina and her family then enjoyed a happy life together. Then came the Christening of Rowena's daughter when Frank came and he was accepted. After which, it was Seven's wedding to William.




Aside from Ai-Ai de las Alas, Eugene Domingo also returns in the last installment as Rowena. Majority of the characters reprise their roles in the film. Marvin Agustin, Kaye Abad, Nikki Valdez, Marc Acueza return in the last film after being absent in the previous sequel. Among the cast, Heart Evangelista is the only character to not appear in the final sequel due to reasons unknown.[1] Also in this film, appearances of Ina's husbands played by Tonton Gutierrez as Alfredo, Jestoni Alarcon as Kiko, and Dennis Padilla as Eddie with the exception of Edu Manzano as Tony.
