Just when America's trade balance needs all the help it can get from Hollywood's global entertainment dominance comes the latest challenge to its supremacy: a China that can make chick flicks.

Silly and slapsticky, "Love in Space" is too busy devising absurd set pieces to develop the characters or make their mutual attractions plausible.

We're used to seeing Chinese costume dramas with Gong Li and action thrillers in which warlords do battle on horseback. But a Hollywood-esque rom-com set in China? That's a surprise.

Though it doesn't exactly have pretensions toward the rhythms of real life, the film does nail the breezy movie feeling of a buffed-and-polished romantic comedy.

Delightful, visually delicious rom-com involving the amorous tribulations and triumphs of three young couples should hit the Asian market bull's-eye as well-known Chinese cast and word-of-mouth perk and further fuel interest.

A trio of paper-thin plots spun into a cutesy shard of stale ribbon candy.

Audience Reviews for Love in Space

½

This movie was certainly meant to be light, silly and fun, it's obvious just watching the film, and in a way the movie does fulfill its purpose, but it's still, to me, just an average film at best. The movie focuses on three sisters and their respective love lives and because of that, there really isn't a lot of time to develop each relationship to where it feels fully developed or, really, all that interesting. I think the one that is the highlight is Lily's segment, because at least she had an obstacle that she needed to overcome to achieve real happiness. The other two, I don't really understand what they were trying to achieve. Not that any of it was bad, it's decent at best and it's got an energetic cast but its characters aren't as well developed as they would've been if each sister had their own movie. Not that I think three separate movies would've been any better, I think it would've stretched things out to an unimaginable degree, so perhaps it's for the best that the movie ended up this way. I'm sure its intended audience will certainly enjoy it. And I did too, to a certain point. It ended up being better than a lot of Asian romantic comedies I've seen, since it doesn't become a melodrama at any point, so it gets points for that. But the rest of it is average and stuff you've seen elsewhere, and I can't think of anything that this movie does better than others. It is satisfied with not re-inventing the wheel, and I don't have much of a problem with that even if the film isn't good.
