MANILA, Philippines - The controversial Dionisia Pacquiao, fondly called Mommy D, is in  the cast of Regis Films’ Tatlong Bibe where she plays a serious character among “broken adults with troubled lives.”

Through a recent phone patch from her hometown in Mindanao, the mother of the country’s greatest boxer Sen. Manny Pacquiao, briefly shared her thoughts and excitement about the upcoming movie with young acts Raikko Matteo, Lyca Gairanod and Marco Masa.

“I have recovered from pneumonia. I will bring my family to Manila on March 1 to watch the movie,” she said.

Described as a wholesome film, Tatlong Bibe opens tomorrow.

Mommy D made use of an amusing praise to urge moviegoers to watch the film. She related, “Ipinaaabot ko sa fans ko na abangan nila at panoorin ang Tatlong Bibe kasi maganda daw itong tingnan.”

Producer Anicia Joson-Regis said that it was easy to get Mommy D’s nod to appear in the movie when she and her team paid her a visit down south. She said that the sensational sports hero’s mom really wanted to be in a movie.

Regis also took note of Mommy D as “masayang kasama,” recalling that the movie’s director Joven Tan had to teach her how to sing Tatlong Bibe a hundred times.

In referring to the film, the down-to-earth recruiting expert-turned-entertainment outfit lady CEO stated, “We believe in strengthening family and providing wholesome and educational entertainment.”

Tatlong Bibe, a tale of three children from the countryside in search of, yes, three ducks, has a stellar support cast including Eddie Garcia, Angel Aquino, Ronnie Lazaro, Rita Avila, Lou Veloso, Victor Neri,  Perla Bautista, Anita Linda and Ernie Garcia.

Part of the movie’s proceeds will go to charity.
