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.

Good cute fun!
19 June 2010 | by sane1216See all my reviews

I liked this movie, not because it was the epitome of originality, but it was fun. I can't recall if I've seen or read something with a similar storyline, but given the amount of creative people in the world...I suspect so. At first I didn't understand the computer effects and off the wall "delusions" as some called them, but as an artist I immediately begin to recognize this as the character's imaginative interpretation of events.

The story stays on track, it's not all over the place. Some revelations are predictable...about 3 minutes before they happen....if you want to call that predictable. Others are...well obvious. It's a romance comedy, c'mon..what do you expect? You go into it knowing someone's going to get together, you shouldn't be surprised when it happens. What should matter is the events in between and whether they make you laugh or care about the characters. This story did it for me. I think Zhang Ziyi (Sophie), Peter Ho (Gordon), Fan Bingbing (Joanna) and So Ji-sub (Jeff) did a great job with their roles and carrying the story.
