    Very Hollywood constructed only by replacing with Chinese own ingredients. The thing is, it is so over-boiled, even hard-boiled sometimes.

    English name of the movie 非诚勿扰(literally "if not sincere, do not disturb") is If You Are the One and this romantic comedy directed by Feng Xiaogang is starring very popular Ge You and Shu Qi. This is one of Feng's top grossing films to date, and has earned over ¥364 million (US$53.7 million) at the box office. This story is following basic romantic comedy pattern but it is still fun to follow Qin Fen (Ge) who returns to China in his late forties after many years overseas. Almost a failure because he didn't earn any type of degree while he was overseas, he has an amazing skill to convince others. Using this skill he becomes a multimillionaire after selling an "innovative invention" to a high-profile foolish investor (Fan). With his new fortune, Qin decides to put an end to his bachelor life and advertises online for potential partners to apply "if you are the one", that is, only if they are sincere. Ironic observational comedies are Feng's speciality and this one is no exception! Funny encounters are various as the candidates, from a homosexual former friend, a cemetery saleswoman with a thick south-Chinese accent, a pathological amnesiac, an ethnic minority pecking hen, an erotophobic widow, an expectant single mother (Hsu), and a stock-holding trader... the serious part starts when he crosses paths with air stewardess Liang Xiaoxiao (Shu), who previously had a painful love affair with a married man (Fong). But they became friends... what are the chances for more? If you want to enjoy a movie full with airy playfulness, filled with unreserved energy delivering us the predictable romance, this is the one! You will be unembarrassed having a pleasure enjoying the obvious. Master Feng proves that is possible to make a movie with a formula, bringing the formula to vivid life!

    A sweet cynical and touching tale about the pragmatic search for love against the economic upheavals of the time.

    acting was superb, movie was funny and entertaining. however thought the script towards the end was lacking and the plot twist uncalled for there it did not seem believable

    A nice film that draws in the audience with charms and beauty. A surprise find for me because it was on loan from the library. The film tells a good story of life and chance and fate. Reminds me of our lifes as floating lilies in the vast ocean... It's beatifully done, not just the interactions between the characters but the setting of the backdrops. I am looking forward to watching the sequel...
