I really have no idea how Chinese movies have fallen so behind. I used to enjoy Chinese action flicks until they made it cheesy, oversaturated with CGI, and the 100th retelling of the same stories (Japanese takeover, Bruce Lee, etc.). Chinese romance used to have a charm about it that have since gone away. This movie was both unbelievable and frustrating.
I felt no compassion for the lead actress whatsoever. She came off as both materialistic, overly emotional, and bi-polar. The term love is thrown around like she's a 12 year old finding her first crush. That scene where the 3 girls walked into the restaurant and her boss couldn't resist the temptation to look was lame. It's really hard to like a movie where you can't find a character to cheer for.
