Background and development
The movie was first announced in early June when it beat the deadline for the submission of scripts for the aspiring 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival entries. The press conference and contract signing for the movie was held on June 13, 2012 wherein five local producers signed. The signing was done at the UCC Café Greenhills and was attended by Orly Ilacad of OctoArts Films, Rowena Bautista-Mendiola and Andrea Bautista-Ynares of Imus Productions, Mr. Tony Tuviera of APT Entertainment, Vic Sotto of M-Zet Productions and Atty. Annette Gozon-Abrogar of GMA Films. It was also the time that they revealed that Judy Ann Santos will act as the leading lady or the Me in the title. This will be the second movie of Bong Revilla, Jr. and Vic Sotto together following Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote. In an interview of Vic Sotto for SunStar, the challenge for them is to create a bigger and more fun movie for everyone. He also stated, "...ang pressure namin ni Bong and Juday ngayon, eh how to put up a very good and enjoyable product and kung papaano namin malalampasan ‘yung huli naming ginawa(The pressure for us is on how we are going to surpass what we’ve done before),". On June 18, 2012 the Metro Manila Development Authority announced that the film is one of the 8 official entries for the film festival. The Greater Manila Theater Operators Association selected the 8 film out of 14 through level of creativity, cultural or historical value, and commercial viability.
The film began shooting on July 30, 2012 in Ilocos Norte with Bong Revilla, Jr.. On an interview of Revilla on a Saturday talkshow Startalk on August 18, 2012, he revealed that they already completed 40% of the movie. Revilla also revealed that they are the first movie to have a shoot at the "Kapurpurawan"(white) rock formations in Burgos, Ilocos Norte.

In a review for Rappler.com, Carljoe Javier declared that the film did not surprise him other than the fact that it was extremely politically incorrect. He also pointed out that the movie had commercials inserted in it and that the storyline lacked a clear narrative.
At ClickTheCity.com, Philbert Ortiz Dy declared "Si Agimat, Si Enteng, at Si Ako is utterly unnecessary. There are already several movies just like it in existence, ones with less blatant product placement and a less skeevy overall tone. The people involved in the picture seem to be producing it completely out of inertia at this point, just going through the motions for another year, hoping to lure in people based on name recognition alone."
As of December 26, 2012, this movie had P47,700,000, with Vice Ganda, Ai-Ai de las Alas and Presidential sister Kris Aquino's Sisterakas at #1, which had P71,200,000 gross, earning the 1st place position for two consecutive days so far.
