Cute and funny
5 November 2012 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

It appeared to me that the words being spoken didn't match the way the actors' lips were moving. And if this did, in fact, mean the movie was being dubbed, it wasn't dubbed very well. Some of the characters just seemed like complete clowns. Not that there was anything wrong with that. This was a very funny movie.

Bu was absolutely adorable. Too adorable, in fact. Much of the dubbing of her material was entirely too cutesy. It made her appealing to me, but it just seemed to take away from the movie's quality. And if the title referred to her--well, she was.

But the comedy, the fighting, the romance, the mystery--all were enjoyable. Jackie Chan's character was quite appealing. Not really as miserable as Bu seemed to think. But Bu brought him out of his misery, and we had to wonder: would she end up with him or one of the other guys? When I saw this, it had a TV-14 rating. Totally uncalled for. What violence this movie had was mostly slapstick. Even one of the two serious fights turned slapstick at one point, and that was great.

Bu's parents were quite appealing too. The other characters I haven't mentioned all seemed like cartoons. But if that's what you like, and I do, no big deal.

Gorgeous? Maybe. But I think the title referred to the girl. The film? Very enjoyable.
