No Filipino can contest that the Sharon Cuneta-Gabby Concepcion love team is indeed one of the most well-loved love teams in Pinoy movies. As we all know, their marriage lasted for only three years and Sharon has been married to Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan since 1996. But still, Sharon-Gabby fans have always wanted to watch them on the silver screen again. So it’s no surprise that all their six reunion movies were box-office hits.
KC Concepcion, the only child of Sharon and Gabby has a daughter, also has her own showbiz career. But still, the chemistry of her parents on screen is undeniably magnetic to the public. As a matter of fact, their McDonald’s TV commercial released in February 2018 was such a big hit, especially in social media. With that, below is the complete list of all the nine Sharon-Gabby movies. So Sharonians, are you ready to recall your kilig moments?
#1 Dear Heart (1981)
Directed by Danny L. Zialcita, ‘Dear Heart’ is the first ever movie of Sharon and Gabby, and is also Sharon’s first feature movie. But contrary to what many people think, this film was not produced by Viva Films but by Sining Silangan Productions. Both of them were only 15 years old but were already dating. Ironically, Sharon recently admitted that during that time, she wants anyone as her leading man in her first movie, except Gabby. Watch Dear Heart full movie here.
#2 P.S. I Love You (1981)
Directed by Eddie Garcia, ‘PS I Love You’ is the first Sharon-Gabby movie via Viva Films and is also Viva Films’ first feature film. Because ‘Dear Heart’ was such a big hit, Sining Silangan planned to make an immediate follow-up. However, they reportedly did not have enough resources so then-Pasay City Mayor Pablo Cuneta (Sharon’s father) collaborated with Vicente “Vic” del Rosario, Jr and established Viva Films.

#3 My Only Love (1982)
Due to the commercial success of PS I Love You, Eddie Garcia directed the second Sharon-Gabby movie also under Viva Films ‘My Only Love’ which was released the flowing year. But unlike the first two films, Sharon and Gabby now had a third party in the character of Jackie Lou Blanco as Trixie. This movie had a scene on the beach but Sharon was too young then to wear a bathing suit so she instead wears a pair of maong pants. Watch My Only Love full movie here.
#4 Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin (1984)
Sharon and Gabby broke up in 1982, but it did not stop them from making a movie together via ‘Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin?’ But this time, they graduated from the cute roles and played as young adults who got married. Directed by Emmanuel H. Borlaza, this first Sharon-Gabby reunion movie earned Sharon her first FAMAS Best Actress award for her role as Myrna and was also declared as the Box Office Queen of RP Movies.

#5 Sa Hirap At Ginhawa (1984)
Sharon and Gabby got married on September 23, 1984, and their movie ‘Sa Hirap at Ginhawa’ once again has proven that Sharon is a great actress. For her role as Cecilia, who followed her boyfriend (Gabby of course) in Baguio and endured the hardships of a young wife. Sharon won her first FAP (Film Academy of the Philippines) Best Actress award. This movie was directed by Leroy Salvador, and of course under Viva Films. Watch Sa Hirap At Ginhawa full movie here.
#6 Pati Ba Pintig Ng Puso (1985)
This sixth Sharon-Gabby movie is far different from their earlier movies. Also directed by Leroy Salvador, Sharon here plays as one of the housemaids of the rich family of Gabby who wants to seek revenge on his grandfather played by Eddie Garcia. There is no third party involved, but rather a family problem that should be resolved. And although this film did not receive any award nomination, it still worth watching.

#7 Bakit Ikaw Pa Rin (1990)
‘Bakit Ikaw Pa Rin?’ is the reunion movie of Sharon and Gabby after 5 years and 3 years after they separated. Directed by Emmanuel H. Borlaza, Sharon earned a Best Actress nomination at PMPC Star Awards for Movies for her role as Jenny. And although there is no third party involved in their young romance, Cherie Gil who played as Sylvia, Paul’s sister was effective in creating hell just to destroy their relationship.

#8 Una Kang Naging Akin (1991)
‘Una Kang Naging Akin’ featured then-rising actress Dawn Zulueta as Vanessa, the fiancée of Gabby’s character before Diosa (Sharon’s character) met him. Directed by Laurice Guillen, Sharon here earned Best Actress award nominations from both FAMAS and FAP for her excellent performance. In general, all the actors in this movie did great. But because the love triangle involves amnesia, the story seems to be lame and simple. Watch Una Kang Naging Akin full movie here.
#9 Tayong Dalawa (1992)
So far, ‘Tayong Dalawa’ is the last movie together of Sharon and Gabby. But just as saying goes, Viva Films saved the best for last. Directed by Laurice Guillen, this ninth Sharon-Gabby movie gave the Megastar the Best Actress award from Movie Magazine’s Film Review Awards. In addition, she also earned Best Actress nomination from Gawad Urian FAMAS, FAP and Star Awards for Movies. That’s indeed a grand slam! Watch Tayong Dalawa full movie here.
Wanting for the 10th Sharon-Gabby reunion movie? Well, Star Cinema announced in December 2016 that it was supposed to be released in 2017. But according to Gabby himself, he had to cancel the project because of his prior commitments at GMA-7. But in April 2018, Gabby clarified that the problem did not originate from him, saying that the producers had laid out some items that he agreed upon but Sharon did not like it.
