Viva’s comedy classic, Batangeñong, Kabitenyo to premiere on I HEART Movies Channel

In Batangeñong, Kabitenyo, Leo Martinez played Magno, a Batangueño who has an inexplicable charisma to women. He and his wife (played by Anjanette Abayari) want to have children but are unable to conceive. And for as long as Magno continues to fool around, they probably never will.  The movie became controversial back in 1995 after the MTRCB gave it an X rating.
