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

A decent romantic comedy offered by the Chinese film industry
17 May 2013 | by YJLcoolSee all my reviews

Finding Mr. Right is a decent, well-executed romantic comedy that stands out among many China film productions. It's smart, occasionally funny at times, and surprisingly touching, drawing numerous references from the classic romantic comedy, 'Sleepless in Seattle', which influences the film's climax.

It's charming and somewhat delightful to watch the lead female character, Jia Jia's personal transformation from a spoilt, obnoxious, stubborn, high maintenance, materialistic, hateful woman to a down-to-earth, caring and admirable grown mother. It's a strong character that requires good performance, which Tang Wei delivers with her charming presence.

Finding Mr. Right offers nothing new in the genre and it may certainly look common or feels like any romantic comedies out there by others, but the solid storytelling,convincing love chemistry between the two lead characters allow it to shine. It's a significant improvement, or possibly a breakthrough for the Chinese film industry.
