Everyday, I Love You is a romantic-drama film directed by blockbuster hit-maker, Mae Czarina Cruz-Alviar. This will mark a reunion with Gerald Anderson, who worked previously with Direk Mae in Catch Me, I'm in Love, and with Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano, whom she worked with in 2013's romantic-comedy film She's The One.
In a story conference held July 28, Liza and Enrique talked about their roles in their upcoming Star Cinema movie. Liza plays Audrey, whom she describes as a “romantic with an old soul.” "I live in Silay, Bacolod, and I'm the type of person who's very patient." Meanwhile, Enrique plays Ethan, a guy who grew up with his father when his mother abandoned them to return to her first love. Unlike Liza’s character, Enrique's is one who wants everything to be fast- paced. Playing third wheel is Gerald Anderson, who is cast as Tristan, Audrey’s boyfriend. Gerald describes his character as a 'probinsyano' and an old soul like his girlfriend. He is also a family man, but “something happens which changes my life completely.” 
Direk Mae also said the reason why they chose "The Ruins" as part of the movie is because of its romantic feels. She also added that "...the cast gets a sense of mystery, sense of history, and sense of olden times" in an interview conducted in The Morning Show Bacolod.
Filming began on July 30, 2015 at Bonifacio Global City. Although it was interrupted due to "Ghost Month" (which happened between August and September), they resumed filming in early September. Much of the production was on location in Silay, Manapla, specifically Hda. Sta. Rosalia Gaston Bacolod. They also filmed some parts of the movie in Pila, Laguna.
It Might Be You was originally sung by Stephen Bishop for the 1982 film Tootsie. On October 8, Star Music announced and released the official music video of "It Might Be You", a rendition from Your Face Sounds Familiar contestant and Harana member Michael Pangilinan. This version of Michael's will serve as the official theme song of the film. This also marks his second time to sing the official theme song of hit love team, LizQuen. He sang the official theme song, an OPM classic, "Smile In Your Heart" with the Harana Boys in Just The Way You Are, LizQuen's first film.
On October 28, the official movie hashtag #NATIONALILOVEYOUDAY trended nationwide on Twitter. LizQuen fans proved unstoppable, which caused the hashtag to later gain even more traction and worldwide attention (it reached the number one spot in several lists, and ultimately garnered more than 3 million tweets). It trended in a record 62 countries, with Hollywood and international celebrities/institutions (USA Today, MTV, Star Wars, SNL, NBC, Harry Styles, Miranda Kerr, Antonio Banderas, Zoe Saldana, and many others) joining in on the "I love you" trend.
The film was released on October 28, 2015 nationwide. The US and Canada premiere was on November 6. 7, 8 was in UK, Austria, Italy, France, and Spain, and on November 12, in Middle East, Australia and New Zealand, on November 14 and 15 UK and, on November 22 was in Singapore.
The film received a graded B by the Cinema Evaluation Board. It also was Rated G by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB).
Everyday I Love You received positive reviews. Rito Asilo of Philippine Daily Inquirer praised the film saying, "The swoon-worthy romantic tear-jerker effectively brings out what makes Tinseltown’s most photogenic young couple tick and click, and gives hopeless romantics good reason to happily swoon in their seats—but, at the expense of Gerald Anderson, who fritters his third-wheel character Tristan’s romantic chances away, “While You Were Sleeping”-style!" And the lead cast also received praises saying "Enrique and Liza don’t just play to the peanut gallery, they make their potent kilig moments soar. The intimate scenes they share are organically staged by Alviar with a lot of heart, fueled further by Soberano’s disarming dramatic perspicacity and appealing presence." Moreover, he highly praises Liza Soberano, "The gorgeously photographed film’s biggest thespic draw is its leading lady: Soberano’s acting choices may need more texture and refinement—but, at only 17, lovely Liza is quickly coming into her own as a fine actress!". Abby Mendoza of Pep.ph said "Everyday I Love You doesn’t make things difficult for itself. It remains focused and grounded on its premise, reinforcing it with a coherent plot, great performances, and the formidable chemistry between its two leads. While Enrique Gil confirms that he is by now adept at leading man roles, it is Liza Soberano who particularly stands out—which isn’t to harp on her beautiful face on screen. She is a natural who displays the right restraint, pleasing to watch all the more since she doesn’t try too hard. Gerald Anderson, who deviates from his conventional leading man roles in this film, makes for an effective third party.
The Cinema Evaluation Board of the Philippines said "The Film Deserves an incentive for Imparting good values and its wholesome entertainment". On Director, "Director Mae Cruz-Alviar, whose forte seems to be the romantic comedy, appears well at home in this latest project, capable and sincere and devoid of pretension." On Cinematography, there was "nice use of available light in the Negros scenes, where filmmakers must be commended for making the province a veritable character in the movie." And they also praised Liza Soberano raving, "Winning unanimous raves was lead Liza Soberano who displays depth and range and shows much promise. How can someone so young be so adept at her role which she nails down beautifully?"
