Comments: There's one really great sight gag in this film where the live action set becomes a life-size photograph that Zhang Ziyi rips apart but that's the only redeeming moment of the whole film. The humor is cheap and predictable and not funny. So much of it is playing out a scene only to cut to--ha ha--it was only a daydream. And there's a bunch of falling down and banging into other people, really bad physical comedy. Zhang Ziyi produced this junk and I think it was only because she wanted to do a film where she isn't dead before the film ends. She's rarely cute in it, though. Bad haircut, bad character, horrible script. Too bad

Summary: Dumped by her fiance just two months before their wedding, comic strip writer Sophie hatches an elaborate plan to get her Jeff back and punish the movie star, Joanna, who seduced him away. She finds herself a partner, Gordon, an ex-lover of Joanna's. The two start on a comic adventure full of laughs and tears, aided by Sophie's two best friends, Lucy and Lily. At the eve of her success, Sophie suddenly realizes that she has been so focused on revenge that she has not heard her own change of heart...
