My Lucky Star is wholesome, effortless entertainment that runs smoothly enough but seldom takes one's breath away in the romance department.

After watching it, you may need a few moments to remember which decade this is, because the film has the tone and silliness of a "Pink Panther" movie or an episode of the 1960s sitcom "Get Smart."

It's hardly original, but as the plot bounces from Singapore to Hong Kong and the lavishly gaudy Venetian Resort in Macao, "My Lucky Star" plays out like a sparkling, brightly lit travelogue with Zhang as a bubbly tour guide.

While Zhang is one of China's greatest international stars, "My Lucky Star" is utterly provincial.

The outrageous story is engaging, even if some of its hilarity is lost in subtitular translation. While the film does not lack production values and panache, Gordon's direction often seems thoughtless.

The movie displays a fair amount of visual invention in its sight gags, stunt choreography, and bright color schemes.

(A) candy-floss concoction that is never particularly gripping but certainly delivers slick visuals and an engaging bunch of performances from a committed cast.

Director Gordon keeps the story flowing smoothly and the photography, by cinematographer Armando Salas, is picture perfect.

The result is the blandest of both worlds. My Lucky Star is neither a particularly thrilling spy movie nor a very original romance.

Ziyi Zhang as heroine in 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World' rom-com? Yes.

If this dreck is what the Chinese market thinks we like, you have to wonder what kind of impression our movies make on them.

In spite of its drawbacks, My Lucky Star is always fun to watch and better than, say, a Jennifer Aniston/Gerard Butler vehicle.

Zhang's character is so idiotically naive and her adventures so flairlessly executed that it's the thing to escape from.

Appropriating American rom-com tropes with such gusto...My Lucky Star is a cutesy Chinese caper cooked up with nothing but old scraps.

Yet another limp spy spoof that fails to make any interesting critiques about the genre, let alone construct a humorous gag.
