This is a list of the best John Lloyd Cruz movies. Cruz is one of the most popular leading men both in Philippine television and movies. He usually stars in films with romantic comedy themes. He is most well-known for his collaborations with actress Bea Alonzo. Together, they have made some of the Philippines’ most successful romantic comedy films. The Cruz-Alonzo love team-up started on television when they topbilled the series Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay way back in 2002. The success of that series opened the doors for Cruz. The rest they say is history.
