The New York Times
My Lucky Star, a spy-caper romance from China, is sweet and harmless, but it's also a little disorienting.
50
While Zhang is one of China's greatest international stars, My Lucky Star is utterly provincial. It's for Chinese viewers, plus those few westerners who revel in Asian hyper-cuteness.
50
Wholesome, effortless entertainment that runs smoothly enough but seldom takes one's breath away in the romance department.
40
While the film does not lack production values and panache, Gordon's direction often seems thoughtless.
40
With a running time of nearly two hours the overall silliness wears thin rather quickly.
30
That My Lucky Star isn't serious is less an issue than the fact that its comedic action is so broad, ridiculous, and predictable that it soon feels juvenile, akin to a training-wheels variation on various genre formulas.
20
Still, the vibrantly shot Lucky Star could have been a mildly entertaining bit of escapism, were it not for the fact that Sophie isn't naïve so much as infantile, a point driven home by her wardrobe.
12
Yet another limp spy spoof that fails to make any interesting critiques about the genre, let alone construct a humorous gag.
