WHAT happens when the undisputed Comedy King meets the Box-Office King in the biggest comedy movie event of the year?

All hell breaks loose, that’s for sure as the dream duo promises to take moviegoers on a journey of non-stop rib-tickling and madcap (mis)adventures.

Comic icons Dolphy and Vic Sotto undeniably double the fun and excitement as they team up in RVQ Productions, M-Zet Films and APT Entertainment’s "Dobol Trobol: Get Redi to Rambol," opening August 13.

The film not only boasts of riotous comic situations, physical humor and tried and tested gags. It also showcases state-of-the-art special effects rarely seen in comedy flicks.

Directed by Tony Y. Reyes, the movie tells of an aging resort security guard/cook (Dolphy) facing retirement and the odds he has to bear to single-handedly raise his only child, played by Miss Earth-Canada and former "Pinoy Big Brother: Celebrity Edition 2" housemate Riza Santos).

Father and daughter lead a rather "quiet" life until the resort’s new recruit (Vic), tapped by management to assume Dolphy’s post, enters their lives and falls in love with Riza.

"Umpisa pa lang, asaran at buwisitan na, dahil akala niya, sinulot ko siya sa trabaho. Magbabago lang ‘yon nang makilala ko ang anak niya (Riza). Pero lalo siyang maaasar sa akin, ako naman, pilit na aareglo sa kanya," Vic shares.

"’Yun pala," he continues, "ang panliligaw ko kay Riza ang magiging tulay para mabuksan ang isang yugto sa buhay niya na kailangang maayos."

Carmi Martin plays Dolphy’s wife in "Dobol Trobol: Get Redi 2 Rambol," while "Eat Bulaga" dabarkads Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola play the lead characters’ respective sidekicks.

Also appearing in cameo roles are Dolphy and Vic’s real-life partners, Zsa Zsa Padilla and Pia Guanio, plus a host of other big-name actors and actresses.

Much-awarded Bibeth Orteza wrote the script, but Dolphy, Vic and Direk Tony themselves injected their share of ideas during principal photography.

"It was actually an ongoing process. Hindi lang ito puro patawa, may puso rin ang istorya," Vic says. "Medyo natagalan nga lang dahil pareho kaming busy sa TV, pero nu’ng nagmi-meeting na kami, panay ang bangka ni Dolphy.

"Sobra siyang excited. Ang hindi niya alam, mas doble ang excitement ko dahil sa wakas, nagkasama rin kami sa pelikula."

Do get ready as this year’s biggest movie event, "Dobol Trobol: Get Redi 2 Rambol," brings together for the first time Dolphy and Vic in a rare outing that is touted to break all existing box-office records!

"Dobol Trobol: Get Redi 2 Rambol" hits the big creen on August 13.
