Dolphy is the Philippines' comedy king and he is known for making spoofs of hit Hollywood films. Tataynic is one of those. The movie was produced during the time Titanic was making its successful run in Philippine theaters.Tataynic is derived from the words Tatay Nic (Daddy Nic), the name of the main character played by Dolphy. The setting is - you guessed it right - a luxury liner !!! Unfortunately, the movie didn't match its Hollywood counterpart's popularity. The comedy aside from being outdated, is also peppered with a plethora of uncalled for musical numbers.
