Yes, this is yet another one of those very generic romantic comedies that are mass-produced and all follow the same guidebook of how-to-make-a-successful-romantic-comedy.
What made me sit down to watch this movie was solely because of Shu Qi. And she does an adequate job alongside You Ge, but they had so very little to work with by restrictions of a mundane script. And yes, this is one of those dislike-turns-to-love types of romantic comedies.
The story is about 40-something year old Qin Fen (played by You Ge) who is desperately trying to find a wife by posting an add on the Internet. He happens to meet with Xiaox Xiaox (played by Shu Qi), but they are not compatible. Qin Fin is a recent millionaire and Xiaox Xiaox is trying to mend a broken Heart. As fate will have it their paths cross again and an odd friendship starts to bloom.
The movie ran at just about two hours, which felt like an eternity towards the end. They should have cut away about 30 minutes to make it a movie that could sustain a hold on the audience.
"If You Are the One" (aka "Fei cheng wu rao") is not a memorable movie, unless you are a die-hard fan of anyone on the cast list. And there are far better choices of movies in this genre, should you be in the mood for a romantic comedy.
