This is a crass comedy that gives new meaning to the word "sophomoric." The Entitled is a Filipino rags-to-riches/romcom that combines elements of, say, The Princess Diaries with more recent comedies that revel in gross-out humor and sex jokes. Bodily functions, fluids, and hair feature prominently, and it doesn't take long for these attempts at humor to become stale. For instance, the recurring joke of Belinda -- our slovenly and unsophisticated bumpkin from the sticks who must learn how the well-to-do use salad forks and sit for Brazilian wax sessions -- gets a literal stomach-churning anxiety when faced with stressful situations. When bathroom humor doesn't work, it's just gross, and gross is what happens, time and time again.

The best that can be said is that there's a strong supporting cast, but none of that matters when the story is nothing that hasn't been done before in so many different ways. There are no real laughs to be had, and furthermore, after spending most of the movie finding humor in people from "the sticks," there's some attempt to communicate a message of "acceptance" near the end, when Belinda goes back to her hometown and where everyone is poor but at least they're honest. None of it works in the end.
