Quotes

Sophie: [translated lines] When I was young, my mother used to say that a woman in love loses her sense and a woman who is dumped loses her mind. I didn't understand that until two winters ago. My mother also said men must choose the right career and women marry the right guy. In other words, women's goal is to find Mr. Right, so to be successful you have to find that special guy.

Adorable movie, adorable lead actress.
6 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Who knew that Ziyi Zhang was such a sharp comedic actress? Anyone familiar with her only from her work in martial arts epics like House of Flying Daggers and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon will be in for a dramatic change with Sophie's Revenge. 

Zhang plays Sophie, a comic strip artist and writer who has just lost her boyfriend to a gorgeous actress (Bing Bing Fan), and allies herself with the actress's ex in order to break them up. This is an amusing, silly and lighthearted movie that does romantic comedy right. Zhang is so adorable and cute (seriously, try not to fall for her, you will fail) that Sophie's Revenge would be worth seeing for her alone, but the rest of the cast and the movie as a whole hits the right notes and comes off as a wholly charming experience. The story doesn't exactly venture into unexpected territory, but there are lots of little animated scenes and other embellishments that make this more charming and imaginative than the run-of-the-mill movies in the genre being churned out today.
