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

Soundly asleep before Mr. Right was found...
7 June 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Normally I am a huge fan of Asian cinema, so of course I jumped at the chance to sit down and watch "Finding Mr. Right" (aka "Bei Jing yu shang Xi Ya Tu") believing it to be a romantic comedy that is seen in abundance from the Hong Kong cinema.

Running at over 2 hours, this movie turned out to be an unfathomably boring ordeal to suffer through. And I must admit that I gave up 70 minutes into the movie out of sheer and utter boredom.

The characters in the movie were generic, flat and lacking screen charisma. The cast, however, were adequate, although they were given next to nothing to work with in terms of characters, plot and story.

The movie was so incredibly slow paced and with the fact that next to nothing happened, it just prolonged the agony and suffering, making it unbearable to sit through.

Director and writer Xiaolu Xue didn't manage to produce a captivating story here and the movie was just not particularly appealing on any level. Especially when there are so many other far more entertaining, funny and enjoyable movies in the Asian cinema, and more specifically from Hong Kong.

I have no intention of returning to watch "Finding Mr. Right" because it just failed to impress on any level. Nor do I have any intention of sitting down to watch the sequel that it spawned.
