There is an underground battle going on in the name of love. The soldiers are all Pikapistas! With pickup lines as their weapons to woo the gorgeous NENENG B (Sam Pinto), the war sizzles in the dark corners of the metro. And there is one undefeated champion among them- BOY PICK-UP (Ogie Alcasid)!
Legendary, enigmatic, hypnotic, that’s his appeal to most who don’t get what his lines are about anyway, but his words penetrate their heart just the same.
Despite his underground fame and legend, Boy Pick-up lives a normal and solitary life. When his landlady asks Boy to love her in exchange for several months of rent due, Boy is forced to look for a new job.
Boy applies as a pastry chef in Heaven’s Bakeshop, a bakery owned by ANGEL (Solenn Heussaff). In the brink of bankruptcy, Boy saves the bakeshop when he creates a pastry delight called “fishcake”. Angel feels indebted to Boy while Boy starts to fall for Angel.
Unknown to Boy, a dark force in the name of BAGWIS (Dennis Trillo) is operating to destroy him, his love life and defeat him in the pikapista battles. Bagwis wants to exact revenge on Boy after losing the love of his life to Boy… Bagwis succeeds in defeating him one night during a pickup battle showdown, humiliating Boy in front of Angel.
The defeat takes its toll on Boy, his love life and his confidence. He realizes he needs to rise and rise above his situation so he can redeem himself. How will Boy emerge from the darkness? Who will help him succeed in the end, and how will he regain the Pikapista crown?

- Gwen Zamora
- Solenn Heussaff
- Dennis Trillo
- Sam Pinto

Director Dominic Zapata was also there.
Usong uso ngayon ang mga pick up lines kaya naman usapang pick up ang naging tema ng presscon ng pelikulang Boy Pick Up na pinagbibidahan ni Ogie Alcasid.
Jampack ang artista at guest dito sa pelikula na tatlong buwan ishinoot ni Direk Dominic Zapata.
Naisip din pala nilang I-guest sa pelikula ang Reyna ng Pick-up na si Senadora Miriam Santiago kaya lang "may blood pressure problems siya" ang kuwento ni Ogie Alcasid , kaya minabuting wag na munang imbitahin ang senadora at isama na lang sa part 2 and 3.
Nagkaroon ng kantyawan sa presscon at hiningan ng sample na pick up lines ang bawat isang cast kaya ito ang banat ni Gwen Zamora:
"Chicharon ka ba?.....Ang ingay mong kainin eh!", si Gwen ay gumaganap bilang Bombshell no. 1 sa pelikula. Marami kasi siyang friends na may alam na mga pick up lines. Dalawa silang bombshell dito si Jackie Rice yung isa. Sexy daw talaga ang role nya dito. Bombshell nga naman kasi sya di ba.
"I think sa mga girls hindi talaga nag wowork ang pick up lines" yan naman ang sabi ni Solenn Heusaff. Hindi daw kasi umeepekto ang pick up lines sa mga girls.
Nagpatuloy ang usapan at naitanong sa mga lalaki kung napick-up na ba sila or naranasan na ba nilang mampick-up.
"Ma pick-up! Oo" sagot naman ni Ogie at ikinuwento nya na napick up na sya dati sa eroplano kapalit ay pabango pero hindi naman ito natuloy.
Kakaiba naman ang naging reaksyon ni Dennis Trillo "Hindi binabayaran ang mga babae para paligayahin" ang wika ng binata.
Showing na sa June 6 ang pelikulang ito na ang target MTRCB rating ay General Patronage.
