The GMA film The Cheating Game will be available worldwide on the popular streaming platform Netflix beginning 26 October.

Topbilled by two of the Philippines’ leading actors at the moment, Julie Anne San Jose and Rayver Cruz, The Cheating Game delves into the lives of two individuals who react differently to betrayal after being cheated.

In The Cheating Game,’ Hope (Julie) is an idealistic young professional who thinks she can change the world. She is devoted to her fiancé and the non-governmental organization they’ve built together. Until a sex video of her boyfriend with another woman surfaces.

Walking away from the engagement, the NGO and the life she thought was hers, Hope starts her new career as a content producer in a company. Unknown to her, this firm moonlights as a troll factory.

She becomes determined never to be outsmarted by a guy again. She designs a “cheat sheet” detailing the “anatomy of a cheater” and uses this as her guide as she navigates the dating world again.

She then meets Miguel (Rayver), a self-made businessman who exudes green flags for a partner. Hope thinks she has found the idea guy — but has she?

Critics have commended the film for depicting a more mature, relatable and realistic side to modern-day dating.

Acclaimed Filipino screenwriter Ricky Lee described The Cheating Game as not a usual rom-com.

“I was expecting a typical rom-com, but it turned out to be so much more!,” the National Artist for Film and Broadcast Arts said. “Hindi ko ini-expect ‘yung twist (I didn’t expect the twist),” he added.

The Cheating Game was produced by GMA Public Affairs under GMA Pictures and is co-written and directed by bestselling author Rod Marmol.
