    This film relies too heavily on gender stereotypes, however, the female lead plays a likable and intelligent woman. There are a few funny scenes. I used this movie to pick up some Mandarin vocabulary and to practice listening/reading comprehension.

    Rom-com with storyline like this have been done till death, which I completely agree. But it does takes one who truly understand the Asian culture to see how this is relevant to the Asian market and it's culture. While many calls it stereotyping, the movie is inspired by the "Everyone loves tender women" where every men dreams of having a hot girly girl girlfriend. While Zhou Xun's tomboyish performance doesn't suit her as much, her always husky, soft yet strong-will voice in narration successfully delivered all the hope and pain. And if you appreciate art and know of JuMing the sculptor, it will at least change your perception and angle to the movie.
