Storyline

City girl Jiajia is traveling to Seattle to give birth to the son who's going to help her win over her rich, married boyfriend. Armed with his unlimited credit card and the singular goal of bringing a little U.S. citizen back to Beijing, Jiajia knows how to play this game of modern love. But when Jiajia arrives in Seattle, the city which inspired her favorite movie Sleepless in Seattle, nothing goes right: she's stuck sharing a small house with two other pregnant ladies, she has trouble reaching her boyfriend on the phone, and eventually, even the credit card stops working. To top that off, the only person willing to spend time with her is her driver Frank. Frank is the opposite of everything she ever wanted in a man... or could he be exactly the kind of guy she really needs? Written by Se7enboy7

Romantic couples
13 May 2013 | by titima-titimaSee all my reviews

This is a good movie with reality and romantics. The best part is the leading couple are so attracted to each other that it is so obvious that they are in love. Frank is such a nice, sweet hubby that every girl would want one. Well, younger would be better. Also, it is such a good representation for new immigrants when they are not well settle down yet. Frank was a famous surgeon in Beijing but jobless after immigrant to Seattle. During struggling to gain credits back as a doctor, his ex-wife decided to leave him. Everyone tease him as a loser except his daughter who is the main reason that he moves to States. Yet facing all the down point ahead, Frank still keeps his mode as much of nice, considerate, and positive. His eyes are full of love, looking at his ex-wife, his young girl friend, and his daughter. It is interesting to see Frank's personality gradually changed from Jiajia's point of view. He is a loser and lousy driver to her when they first meet. Later on, after knowing he used to be a famous cardiologist, she thinks he is coward and tends to help him in an aggressive way. Yet after she almost die from the delivery, she finds he is reliable. But Frank didn't change at all, except at the end he gained a little career success, starting his residency. It is actually Jiajia's personality had been changed. I love the final reunion at the Empire State Building although it seems too much coincidence. Has to admit that the leading couple's performance are quite conservative which is Chinese tradition. Frank can see love in her eyes, yet she is not sure if he is still available. When he finally hold her hands, she is the happy Annie who she does always want to be as in the move, Sleepless in Seatle.
