1) The reason I watched this:

I don't usually watch Chinese rom-coms but this one slipped away when I was watching too many romantic comedies.

2) Storyline/Plot:

The general story isn't something special or new but the way everything was mixed together made the film's story interesting somehow.

Positive points:

*The film's introduction was a good intro for what will happen next.
*There were two well-written twits that you don't usually find read more in romantic comedies stories: that was a nice change.
*Leads mixture was really cool even though it wasn't that intense.
*Finally and most importantly, there were several hilarious moments to make the film lighter.

Negative points:

*Although there were a respectable amount of negative points but I will only mention that the revenge plot wasn't that great, it would have been much better if it was written otherwise.

Story: 7.5/10

3) Acting/Cast:

*Zhang Ziyi: It was a surprise to see her in a rom-com film since I only saw her in Wuxia productions before. I was convinced by her acting but I can't say the same about her character.
*Other actors were good too, they knew how to make it really enjoyablespecially Fan Bing Bing she grasped the evil role perfectly but So Ji Sub was a disappointement here (mainly because I rarely like Korean actors in Chinese or Taiwanese productions).

*The chemistry was believable but not that enjoyable.

Cast: 7/10
Acting: 7.5/10

4) The ending:

Although it could have been much better but script writers chose to make it expected. It wasn't bad overall.

The ending: 7/10.

5) My impression (How did affect me):

*Although it wasn't a special film, it was entertaining and I had fun while watching it.
*Considering the fact that I don't watch Chinese romantic comedies, this was pretty good.

My impression 7/10.

6) Overall:

*If you like romantic comedies then you would like this.
*Ifyou like revenge plots then don't expect much from this.


Overall: 7/10.

I came across this movie because I was bored. I was not in the mood for something boring.
As soon as this movie began, it had my attention.
It's a pretty basic plot that if it were any other movie it'd probably be boring. But this movie had me laughing and going OMG! because of all the antics and trouble that Sophie would get into.
It was so entertaining! I was only read more 20 min into the movie when I texted my cousin to tell her to watch it.
And then out of nowhere, there's a twist on the basic plot.
It was refreshing.
The characters were amazing. I wish we could've seen more of her friends or even some other supporting characters because they were such rich characters with a lot of potential.
But this is Sophie's Revenge and therefore it revolves around her revenge.
All in all it was a cute, fun, entertaining movie. I'm so glad I stumbled across it. If I could find it, I would totally purchase it.

    Really enjoyed watching! I was just looking for a romcom to pass the time, but instead i found myself laughing with Sophie's every funny plans XD Well, the ending is quite cheesy and short for my liking, but hey, a dose of cheesiness won't hurt too much ^^ And the chemistry between the leads are nice.

    This was a cute movie. Watched initially for So Ji-sub and Zhang Ziyi, but came out of it loving Peter Ho. Really loved the atmosphere and look of the film. The colors and sets were gorgeous and really popped, and I really adored Sophie's apartment in particular.

    I love the cast and although I already knew from the poster and well the name of the movie the direction of the movie I still gave it a try. I just love Peter Ho and Ruby Lin? But they couldn't save the movie in any kind of way. It was a typical girly movie which was just really crappy oh sorry I meant bad.

    Lol literally watched this for Peter Ho. <3 Though I strongly disagree with the plot... Basically according to Sophie, the only thing women should strive for is love...like what? She is a very shallow person and it is hard to watch. I guess the only thing that got me through it was Peter Ho's expressions. I was also sad that So Ji Sub had such few scenes even though he was supposed to be a main character. Not exactly a waste of time but still...
