In his latest movie, Moron 5 and a Crying Lady (he’s ‘it’), Sweet plays not just a gay or a guy playing gay but a woman — yes, a ‘real’ one!]

MANILA, MARCH 31, 2012 (PHILSTAR) FUNFARE By Ricardo F. Lo - Of course, he doesn’t need any introduction.

If you don’t know who John “Sweet” Lapus is, then maybe you’ve been laughing at or with the wrong funny person.

I watch him Sundays on GMA’s Showbiz Central and I hold my breath every time he’s tossed by a bunch of sexy male dancers into the air when the star he’s grilling on the show’s Don’t Lie To Me segment commits a “lie” answers. Honestly? I’m waiting for the time when the dancers will “accidentally” drop Sweet to the floor. Imagine how “sweet” the fall would be!

In his latest movie, Moron 5 and a Crying Lady (he’s “it”), Sweet plays a woman (who wrongly accuses the five half-witted guys of killing “her” father), and not a gay or a guy pretending to be gay like he did in his previous screen outings. Co-produced by Viva Films and MVP Pictures, the wacky comedy is directed by certified hitmaker Wenn V. Deramas (from a screenplay by Mel del Rosario), co-starring (as the title roles) Luis Manzano, Billy Crawford, Marvin Agustin, DJ Durano and Martin Escudero.
