Full of human emotions
18 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

This is really a romantic drama for those who are mature in love, although it is full of laughs and the spirited Ge You shows once again why he is so welcomed an actor as the humorous Qin Fen. Some of the humor in the dialog is untranslatable. Ge plays a entrepreneur/inventor in his 40s who, after earning a couple of million from selling a gadget to an angel investor, begins to look for someone that fits his description of the ideal one. He puts up posts online to search for someone, which brings in many candidates. Ge may not be that handsome as a suitor, but his humor is something which is entirely and incomparably charming. Shu Qi as Liang Xiaoxiao, an air stewardess, also shines in her role, although to be fair her role is not as well written as Ge's. As a film, it goes deeper than most comedies in its exploration of love. That said, this film is a notch up even the excellent "Be There or Be Square" - the latter is an outstanding romantic comedy, but "If You Are the One" delves deeper into human relationship and friendship. It is still a romantic comedy and as such has its clichés and a few unrealistic scenes, but makes it up by acknowledging the right things about romance and ironic observations by Feng.
