Thin story line balanced by decent performances
19 November 2003 | by (Virginia USA) – See all my reviews

Miriam Yeung stars as Alice, the daughter of a Chinese herbalist/doctor and a ridiculously ugly looking mother. In a 10 minute segment, you watch Alice learn kung-fu from her dad and how to be a beautiful person from her mother. What Alice becomes is myopic and eccentric. Her little quirks (yelling her angry feelings into a bottle of water, practicing herbal medicine) are supposed to be charming but come across as annoying. Alice works at a ladies magazine that is merging with a men's magazine. There she meets and falls in love with Ryan (Louis Koo), a player who faints after walking up stairs. This characteristic is only there as a way for Alice to interact with Ryan, right? Except that does not happen. Alice gets stranded when she loses her glasses (shades of Velma in Scooby-Doo). Alice stabs Ryan in the butt and this leads to a great friendship. Alice learns that Ryan is in love with Michelle, so she does everything in her power to help him. And if you can't guess what happens next, you haven't seen enough movies or read enough romance novels.

I don't really regret buying this DVD, but what a terrible lesson it teaches. Women should change the way they look and tend to a man's every need in order to win his heart. Yeah, but why buy the cow when the milk is free, right? Louis Koo probably did not break a sweat making this movie. He's the ideal choice for a playboy. Miriam is very credible as the kooky Alice but neither actor convinces me that the two characters should fall in love or be together. If you really, REALLY like cinderella stories, this movie would be a good choice for you.
