At her Marie Antoinette-themed birthday bash, Michelle loses her head after a few drinks and wakes up disheveled in a hotel room. Forty days later, she discovers she’s pregnant and sets about finding the culprit. Michelle narrows it down to three suspects who turned up at her shindig: figure-skating teenager Jeb; seafood-sauce tycoon Tiger; and her Harvard-educated Chinese-American boss, Bill. Their confrontations provide ample opportunities for overdone slapstick and naughty sexual innuendo,but there’s also the matter of her incompatibility with any of them, poignantly addressing the harsh reality that she’s not exactly long-term relationship material in their eyes.
Cast & Credits
Fan Bing Bing and all her supporting men have amazing chemistry in this drama. Her character is the beautiful, successful, and single character leading a lot of rom-coms nowadays, but Bing Bing makes the character relatable and memorable. Watching her on her Mamma-Mia-esque quest to find the baby daddy didn't drag on, until a bit of angst set in near the end of the film. But the conclusion was worth it, as all the character remain likable throughout.
The wardrobe and set styling were all beautiful throughout the drama, as was the smooth directing by Eva Jin. As the writer/director of this film, you can see a lot of similarities with her past work, Sophie's Revenge, but a LOT of improvements as well.
This movie remains one of my favorite romantic comedies, would recommend if you're in the mood for something light, silly, and aesthetically pleasing (Aarif is so so handsome and how does Bing Bing look so young in this).
this movie is very obscure considering it's plot i would've thought there were some love as the recommendations for three dads one mom and one night stud have.
i had yet to have seen a chinese movie but i was pleasantly overwhelmed at the slapstick comedy and humor this movie had to offer.
for the plot i gave it a 7.5 rating because it was a somewhat new idea but played very cliche-ingly. a woman gets drunk and gets pregnant from a one-night stand? big deal! the father is someone among her coworkers? hmm i see... i don't want to lie and say that i didn't skip a few boring parts in the movie.
interestingly enough, the plot manages to tie itself together and make for a somewhat enjoyable comedy with a few moments that got me teary (ugh).
acting and cast was.......decent enough. definitely enjoyed the eye candy.
music??????? there was music??????when?? lol (i mean that it was forgettable and didn't really make a big impact on this movie so low rating for music)
lastly, for rewatch value, as boring this movie was i did enjoy it and laughed here and there so i can definitely say theres a small chance ill revisit this movie again. it was a nice break from all the goblin angst im going through atm.
hope my review was of some value!
