Reception[edit]

Box office[edit]

The film was commercially successful.[3][4][5][6] On its opening day, Kung Ikaw Ay Isang Panaginip registered the highest box office receipts compared to its competitions.[7] For the box office success of the film, Magdangal received the citation Princess of Philippine Movies in the 33rd Box Office Entertainment Awards.[8]

Critical response[edit]

The film received positive reviews from moviegoers and film critics with Butch Francisco of the Philippine Star saying "Kung Ikaw ay Isang Panaginip... is a fun movie to watch. Call it baduy if you wish, but we cannot close our eyes to the fact that it is a decently-made movie ... it is a very small movie with an obviously tight budget but I do appreciate the fact that it is inventive, creative and very energetic – with its every scene well-planned and well-thought of... It is a far cry from those usual small-budgeted run-of-the-mill Tagalog pictures that are downright stupid and assault the sensibilities of the viewers... Kung Ikaw ay Isang Panaginip is cute, fun and perky. More importantly, it stresses old positive values and traits that are so sorely lacking in most of our films today."[9]

The film also marks Magdangal's first film without her long time screen partner Marvin Agustin, of which the team up has produced successful films in the past in F.L.A.M.E.S.: The Movie (1997), Kung Ayaw Mo, Huwag Mo! (1998), Labs Kita... Okey Ka Lang? (1998), and Hey Babe! (1999). Despite this, Magdangal's pairing with Rosell and Munoz in Kung Ikaw Ay Isang Panaginip received positive feedbacks from moviegoers.[10]

Notes[edit]

  • The film marks Nida Blanca's last film after she was stabbed to death in a condo parking in Makati City, Philippines on 7 November 2001.[11] It was reported that Blanca's spirit was allegedly felt in the studio where Magdangal was dubbing her scenes with the actress.[12] Producer Lita Santos later revealed that Blanca admires Magdangal seeing her youth in the latter.[12] Blanca and Magdangal has starred in two other films before Kung Ikaw Ay Isang Panaginip, in Hataw Na (1995) and Ang TV Movie: The Adarna Adventures (1996).[12]
  • Magdangal's Kung Ikaw Ay Isang Panaginip (Star Cinema) and Judy Ann Santos' film May Pag-ibig Pa Kaya? (Starlight Films) was released on same day, 30 January 2002, of which developed[13] their natural rivalry with critics believing that said rivalry is their generation's version, popularity wise, of the country's top rivalries in Gloria Romero and Nida Blanca and Nora Aunor and Vilma Santos.[14][15][16][17]
  • Director Wenn Deramas, in 2003, revealed Kung Ikaw Ay Isang Panaginip as one of his favorite directorial films.[18]
