These two can do no wrong when it comes to adorable romantic hijinks.

But then the actual plot of the movie crashed back into focus when they were not being all couplish and I was not overly happy.

Athena Dizon plays a trick on campus heartthrob and bad boy, gangster, Kenji de los Reyes.

Setting up an arrangement to pretend as lovers-to make his ex jealous-they found themselves falling to each other yet falling apart.

Alarm didn’t go off, you burned your breakfast, you can’t catch a ride, you’re late for every appointment, and you rip your pants. He ends up falling in love with the second Athena, only to find that the first Athena (here comes the ridiculous reason) broke up with him to save him from heartbreak because she has cancer (cancer, you suck).

Somewhere in there, let’s throw in the fact that the second Athena has hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a disease that makes her heart weak-but apparently, not weak enough to prevent her from making the ultimate (some might say unnecessary) sacrifice of giving up true love.

She’s Dating the Gangster tells the heart-wrenching tale of 17-year-old Athena Dizon and campus bad boy Kenji de los Reyes, two teenagers who begin a pretend relationship that ultimately transforms into something deeper.

( There are days when you wake up and everything just goes wrong. Kenji Delos Reyes gets dumped by one Athena (for reasons beyond ridiculous) and he is forced to play pretend with another Athena to get the first Athena back.

I was not a fan of the whole tragic illness plot twist.
