Modern Romeo & Juliet??? Could've Been Better

I waited for this movie eagerly only to be disappointed by its half-baked state. The script is so bad that most of the people were having hard time staying put on their seats. The acting is so exaggerated that it made me cringe. And the directing is so poor that the story went downhill faster than you can read the title.

The only good thing is the basic idea and the cinematography. The songs are quite nice, if only they could find a better singer...

Well, I still enjoyed the movie, but I wish that this modern Romeo & Juliet with chicken rice stalls setting were better!
