Let's say I help you win Jeff back. What's the point?
The wedding is in less than a month. How could I let it go just like that? I want him to regret what he's done. I want him to know what it's like to be dumped. I want him to come apologize a million times, and then, in front of everyone - with a little smile on my face - I'll say "Jeff, you're not good enough for me."
This is the real reason you want Jeff back?
You don't need me then. You need a psychiatrist.

There are a lot of romantic comedies like Sophie's Revenge, so there was nothing that unusual about it that would set it apart from others of its same ilk, except for its extremely attractive cast, including Ziyi Zhang (The Road Home, Forever Enthralled, etc) and almost impossibly handsome Korean actor So Jisub (I'm Sorry, I Love You, Cain and Abel, etc). If you have never seen the cast's other work you'll probably not be interested in this film, which borders on the ludicrous, but if you are a fan of one or more of them you'll probably enjoy it. There's no doubt about it though that these stars have far better films under their belts.
I am not sure So Jisub knows Mandarin so I suspect he was saying his (few) lines phonetically. He does better with his natural Korean, but I suppose he was hired here to be eye candy for the females in the audience. ;) There is too much reliance on CGI in this film as well. I quickly lose patience when filmmakers rely too heavily on it for gags and story plot lines, instead of the actors doing natural humor. The best screen comedians in film history did NOT rely on special effects.
The story is about a woman's revenge in trying to get her doctor boyfriend back from a film star he was fallen in love with. She has a huge imagination in dreaming up ways to get him back, but unfortunately her ways do not generate sympathy toward her character. For instance, putting glass shards down on the bathroom floor for her rival to step on? That's going too far. If you can't win him back honestly then maybe he's not for you in the first place.
