MANILA, Philippines – Vic Sotto said he is open to constructive criticism amid the negative feedback and reviews received by his film “My Little Bossings.”

“My Little Bossings,” an entry in the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival, was met mostly with scathing reviews. Among them was writer-TV5 news personality Lourd de Veyra’s “’An Open Letter to Vic Sotto,” published in a lifestyle website early this month.

The essay, which criticized “My Little Bossings,” tells the “Eat Bulaga” main host: “Ngayon ikaw ay nasa maimplumensiyal at makapangyarihang posisyon. Kaya mong gumawa ng mga pelikulang makabuluhan, isang pelikulang maipagmamalaki ng lahat sa punto de bista ng kultura at estetiko.”

Although he has not read the said open letter by de Veyra, Vic said, “Maganda siguro kung dineretso niya sa akin.”

“I’m open to all criticism, lalo na kung constructive,” he said in a taped interview with GMA-7’s showbiz talk show “Startalk” aired Saturday, January 18.

Vic added, “Ito yung tinatawag nating demokrasya, e. Nire-respect ko ang opinyin ng sinuman. Ganun din ang pagrespeto ko sa milyun-milyong nanood at nasiyahan at natuwa sa aming pelikula.”

The 59-year-old comedian said he does not mind the bad reviews. “Ang mahalaga e record-breaking ang festival itong na ito,” he said.
