I watched this movie after I saw Sophie's Revenge and thought that this will also be a good movie. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. I feel bad because the other reviews are higher, but honesty is the best policy.


Story 6/10- The movie starts of okay, remain moderate, but leaves you with a question and feeling unsatisfied.
Character 5/10- The characters are plain which would give them a plus for realism if they had more substance.
Acting 6.5/10- The acting is nothing spectacular. The best character delivery was the female lead and her boss.
Music 5/10- The music actually wasn't bad it just was't memorable either.
Rewatch Value 7/10- Despite what my ratings suggest this wasn't a bad movie it just wasn't that good either. I rewatched movies that make you want to scream from anger. I can see myself watching this again.

This movie is not your Cinderella story, but more like your Cinderella ever after if she lost prince charming to her best friend. One thing I liked about this movie is it focused on the post break up, a period we all experienced whether we were dumped or the dumper. Particularly we got the story in the view of the dumped via cheating which is always cruel. What probably made it worst was how long the two were together. Post break up movies are rare. They force reality down the throats of fairy tales believers(optimistic and proud), but this one lacked delivery. It had great potential in the beginning, but the pace it solves her problems is too fast considering the amount of time and love they shared. Furthermore, it never really explained his side. Sure he is a bastard for cheating, however that is still only one side of the break up. A problem involving two is caused by two. I feel like they never address her shortcomings nor fully address how she overcomes the whole break up. The movie ends at an ending that is bittersweet and a question dangling from your brain.

The characters are equally bland. I liked the female lead. XiaoXian was the type of girl who expressed her anger to close friends and she was very spunky. The only thing I didn't like her about her was how she barely had friends which is explained by her as focusing too much on her ex. We're only human and she is the type of character that perfectly explains that. Meanwhile her sidekick Xiaojian was tolerable. He was actually a decent character and a funny rival, but their relationship is never fully explained. Poor character development. You can't really tell how he cares for her. At the end it is never resolved in my opinion leaving them dangling from friend to lover. Her ex was... I don't know. The ex was introduced as the cheater, but he never seemed like a bad guy and the flashbacks shed a little light on his personality, but it was the pre break up. I wished it was at least explained clearer why he cheated.

This movie didn't capture me as I thought it would. I watched it with high hopes from recommendations and good reviews and ended being disappointed. At the end at least for me this movie is not really memorable. I would recommend this to people who want to see post break up movies. Maybe you will like it. I just don't.

The theme of a break up attracted me to this movie. Almost everyone has experienced a break up and can relate. I especially can relate to the break up experienced by the main character in this movie.

It was really interesting to see how the MC worked out her feelings after a period of time with the help of many people. It was touching to see how the relationship between the main characters developed and how they started caring for each other.

The music was OK & the cast was nice. I would watch this movie again.

I think this movie is a good lesson about how to overcome a breakup. The story was funny, and the ending was cute (saying it was cute is not a spoiler, right?) Her friend was really funny (he's so cool!!) and I love the way she evolved through the story.
As for the rewatch value, I wouldn't mind watching it again, personnally I couldn't stop!
Hope you enjoy it :)

It's my first time to watch a movie that focuses of break ups and post break up so I must this one is a good movie. It has funny scenes and I think when scenes showing how depress the main female lead, everyone who gone through with break ups can relate to her.

I have seen it coming but I can't still believe that the guy who you would thought to be gay will really have something to her. It's funny how they show it in the movie, so guys check it out.

Well, maybe it's because she's depress and so the scene flow is a bit to slow too, honestly, I got bored on how they run it.But over all, i like the movie. rewatch? nope, once is enough.

This is a long movie about the pain of breaking-up, betrayal and loss of faith in oneself. This movie illustrates the haunting pain accompanying those who lose the love of their life with out looking at the mirror realizing the might have been the source of the cause. Story not new. Acting - for a Chinese movie done OK with hints of cheesiness laced throughout. What made the movie for me was the well placed piano solo's adding to the dark, painful story.
Caution: if you have recently broken-up, this might NOT be the best on the other hand, if you are in a place to see yourself in these characters - go for it.
About mid-point, I wanted to kick her in the pants and say, get over it girlie. Go to work, clean-up and move on - glad to know others in the film agreed.
