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.

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.

Being successful involves knowing that light doesn't equal stupid, and discerning between formula and formulaic. Neither director Dennie Gordon nor the four credited screenwriters of My Lucky Star seem able to make those distinctions.
