Storyline

The film follows Xu Lai, a former artist whose dreams were dashed when the responsibilities of life set in. With his life now revolving around his wife Cai Bo who is obsessed with having children, the quirks of his eccentric family and his mediocre, ordinary existence, Xu Lai hopes to reconnect with his first love Yang YIi on an upcoming vacation. However, his hopes are dashed when he finds himself wrapped up in a murder investigation that proves truth is often stranger than fiction.

Bad and way too long
28 May 2017 | by dftr-57238See all my reviews

Bo Cai's family and especially Lala are obnoxious to an intolerable degree, and Xu Lai's polite and benign attitude toward them and refraining from violence toward Lala is actually frustrating for the viewer. The plot doesn't make too much sense. Situations mildly funny. If it were half as long maybe could be mediocre rather than bad.
