Another positive reaction from the viewer, this is from °@gf_on_d_loose it says “No big names in the industry to back James and Nadine in this movie but this two really delivered and I like that the story revolved mainly on the two, on their vows of love.

(Silently crying again.) #NeverNotLoveYouNowShowing.” From John Robert Sion@arjei26 he said “This bears no repeating but let me say it anyway. "Never Not Love You" is JaDine's (James and Nadine) best film to date and I hope they're given more projects of such quality and maturity. The subtlety is admirable, the story so genuine, their performances effortless.#NeverNotLoveYouNowShowing.”
Here are some of the things to know about the Jadine new movie. First, some shooting of the movie was done abroad. A part of the movie was shoot in London. Second, it’s about ‘reckless love. But just what do we mean by reckless? With its negative connotation, does this mean that the ending might just be an unhappy one? Some fans seem to think so. If such is the case, it’ll surely be a refreshing movie for the couple. To answer this you might want to watch the movie and see for yourself. Third, James is a bad boy with a soft heart. In their first film ‘Diary ng Panget,’ James Reid’s character Cross was hardly a bad boy. He was just a handsome heartthrob who was a little snobbish and arrogant. But in this film, he’s the kind whose got tattoos, wears a cigarette on his ear, probably rides a motorcycle, and owns a leather jacket somewhere there.
On the movie trailer, it narrates how Joanne confronts Gio if he’s actually courting her. From the looks of it, James will be less than talkative in this film, his show of love for Joanne will be performed through his actions. And it shows that Gio fetches her before and after her work and during her lunch break– no exceptions, overtime or not. At least he knows actions are more convincing than words will ever be. Fourth, it was previously titled ‘Here’s to Fools.’ ABS-CBN also writes that ‘Never Not Love You’ is not the original title. Instead, it was ‘Here’s to Fools’– which could reveal some plot points if you think about. The title ‘Never Not Love You’ seems to be taken from a line where the couple exchanges their “I Love You’s” and Gio gives the final word saying, ‘I will never not love you.’ And if you apply math to the equation, two negatives will equal a positive. So what he’s actually saying is that he will forever love her. Which is pretty sweet.
