This film centers on Nie Bing, a high-profile TV hostess, who is obsessed with trying to find her "ideal man" before her 30th birthday. Nie Bing is given a magic car by a mischievous angel, and a different handsome man -one of the 12 featured A-list actors from China, Taiwan and Japan- appears each time she drives it. Lam's character soon collects a dozen admirers, portrayed by A-list actors from China, Taiwan, and Japan, each with a different profession, personality, and ideas of what constitutes romance.

The two films I remember Kar Yan (Karena) Lam most from are "Koma" and "July Rhadsody", where she held her own with the late, great Anita Mui and the always worthwhile Angelica Lee. Those films were earlier in her career. In this film she plays Nie Bing, a successful TV host in China. She is not lucky in love and after a night of drinking on her 29th birthday, an angel comes to her (no wings, its a kind of scruffy guy), who tells her she will meet 12 guys over the next year. The film goes through her time with the men, with various things happening, various disappointments etc. Karena Lam is so irresistibly pretty in this. Her smile just makes her so attractive, and that is probably why she was chosen. While the film is not great, I found it worth watching and my attention didn't wander. If you like romantic comedies you'll like this. This is the kind of film Jennifer Anniston could have done 10 years ago, but I doubt she'd carry the film like Ms. Lam. "Koma" and "July Rhapsody" were better, but they are not comedies. Again, if you like romantic comedies, you can certainly do worse.
