Fabulous 30 (2011): Movie Review


Ja (Patcharapa Chaichue) a beautiful woman has everything a woman is supposed to dream of having; a successful career, a partying lifestyle, and a handsome sweetheart. On her 30th birthday, Ja finds her perfect life changed when her boyfriend wants to halt the relationship. Now, at thirtysomething, Ja accepts a happy single life until a new guy (Phuphom Phongpanu) gets in her life and he’s 7 years younger than her.



Fabulous 30 (2011) is a romantic- comedy Thai movie. Does age really matters when it comes to love? How far would Por go to win Ja’s heart? You will all find it out after watching this movie! 😀

Characters :



This is what I love in Thai Movie. I noticed the balanced framing of camera per scene. They have HD Visuals. They have good locations choices too for filming that makes good use of videography. They use slow motion effect too. (airplane paper scene) They maximized the creativity in film making  even if it’s just a slice of life story.

  • Aquarium Park
  • Wedding Event
  • Karaoke Room
  • Beside the Sea

Comments and Suggestions:

I am new to watching Thailand movie. I watched crazy thing called love before because it became trending in PH. (2011) I wasn’t hook really that time because I prefer watching Korean Dramas. I was only convinced that Thai Movies are good after watching Fabulous 30.  My cousin shared some Thai movies like ATM and First Kiss yet it was just so-so for me.


I really don’t believe that a person can possibly love for a longest time (unconditionally) especially a man. I was really moved with Por’s persistence and resolve about his love for Ja. I admire his bravery to pursue someone who has a lover already and way older than him. He’s reaching the impossible while there are so many younger girls who like him. He’s so contented just watching this woman all the time.

On the other hand, Ja is a woman who has everything. (beauty, stable career and a pilot boyfriend!) Until the day, the long time (7 years) boyfriend decided to break-up with her. OUCH! She was so excited thinking about marriage because (hello!)she’s already 30 years old then in one click boyfriend is quitting. It’s really heartbreaking. (but for me it’s annoying)

Ja said… “Why he would break up with me now? I am not getting younger. Who would like an old lady like me?” I understand where she is coming from. Men usually prefer younger women. It’s true. Also, I also learned that when a man truly loves you, he will SURELY NO MATTER WHAT marry you and has no alibis. He will let you know that. He won’t keep you hanging on.  So, Ja had this tough decision making about her boyfriend pilot coming back for a second chance. #Neveragain,Ja! You deserve a better love!

I don’t want to spoil everything though I am feeling itchy to talk about all the details happened because I just love this movie. What more things made me engaged watching this movie? Of course, the plot is great.I got emotional when the stray dog that Ja’s feeding everyday died. Por was also emotional about it because he even compared himself to that dog. My favorite is the Youtube video Birthday Greeting/ Love Confession. So CUTE! When a man doesn’t ever have an idea of quitting….. HE WILL WIN! HAHA! ❤

I also love Ja’s crazy girlfriends. Haha!

Fabulous 30 will make you feel that you can still be FAB when you are 30 years old. You might not know that someone out there is going crazy about you. You don’t need to worry yourself about having a dull romantic life because timing matters. You just need to be confident with yourself all the time. Appreciate life as it is. Go with the flow. By the way, I love Ja’s fashion wardrobe in this film. I want to try it for myself. :p

Pachrapa (Ja) is a Thai model too!

WATCH FABULOUS 30. I AM SURE YOU WILL ENJOY IT especially women of 30s… 😀 I am not yet 30 but I loved it.  If you are also fond of Noona-Dongseang (old women – younger boy) love affair, you will like this. I don’t really prefer that age gap but you don’t need to be rigid when it comes to love. ^o^~

..If one million people are missing you, I would be one of them. If one hundred people are missing you, I would still be one of them. Like a pearl that is one with the heart of the sea. -Por
