People make wishes every day, but just imagine what would happen if someone with the power to grant a wish actually heard yours? The old adage of being careful about what you wish for definitely comes into play as Sammi Cheng, after an accidental encounter with some former snotty schoolmates, decides the answer to all life's troubles is to marry a rich man.
Sammi starts off with a mild charm as a happy-go-lucky village girl you want to root for. She's got a quirky best friend (too bad she didn't have more scenes!), a lazy father, and a job that's probably far from every girl's dream. Like Cinderella, she has her share of drudgery but she's got it better. She's also got it worse in that her prince charming just doesn't quite cut it. Richie Ren may drive some girls wild but there's definitely something amiss here-- mostly a miscast. In fact, his scenes are sometimes quite hard to take. Pity.
But for Ren, this movie had some decent elements. It's preposterous and silly-- it is meant to be romantic fluff, after all, and lightweight stuff is what Sammi does reasonably well.
