Okay movie with weak cast, watchable but a bid childish
The cuisines in this movie were so colorful and so eye-appealing. Takeshi Kaneshiro, as Lu Jin, was a good cast but too many close-ups focused on his face that inevitably showed he was already a 46 years old actor, maybe a little bit over to play this role, unless this director was heavily influenced by Hollywood’s 1940s to 1960s old movies, full of middle aged, even over 50s older actors to play all the leading Alpha roles in romcom movies, such as Gary Cooper, Humphrey Bogart, Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, Bing Crosby, Randolph Scott…those who dominated the big screen, played the big lovers to those young female actors like Audrey Hepburn….these old guys were all too old to play such roles, because to those young actresses, they looked more like fathers or even grands. So the director requested the casting agency to find a middle aged guy similar to Gary Grant to play this Lu Jin role, and likewise, signed up Dongyu Zhou to play Gu Shengnan, with an under-developed body, no figures at all, flat all over skinny and short young woman, exactly like Audrey Hepburn.
I have to say Takeshi Kaneshiro and Dongyu Zhou most of the time performed well enough, but the comic screenplay and the scenarios sometimes forced them to overact, broad acting too much. But Zhou’s face and skinny body made her look too young and too small, exactly like the leek vegi. Then Kaneshiro, on the contrary, seemed to be too old to play Lu Jin, an already over 45 son who was still harshly controlled by his father.
I have to point out some of the actors in this romcom were terrible and no talent at all even this movie was a farcical comedy:
Chiling Lin, as Lu Jin’s Personal Chef; terrible! Absolutely NO ACTING TALENTat all! Ming Xi, as Xu Zhaodi; terrible actor with very limited acting talent. Xiaosong Gao, as Gao Fushuai; what a joke. Tony Yo-ning Yang, as Cheng Ziqian; absolutely no acting talent at all. Yi-zhou Sun, as Meng Xinjie; limited acting talent.
So obviously, this romcom was just an okay movie; a comedy with lot of yelling, screaming, cursing and broad acting.
Love this movie
This is a Chinese romantic comedy. Hithertofor, I always thought “Chinese comedy” to be an oxymoron – I’ve seen a few – or tried to watch them, but they were never even close to funny. This is warm, funny, colorful, creative and a lot of fun. I’m writing this review someone will give it a try and enjoy it even 1/2 as much as I did.
This movie is both an homage to, and a satire of the great “food movies”. It is in the style of the screwball comedy genre. Its not perfect, but it is really a lot of fun, and way above average. They lead actress is fabulous – on par with any great comedic actress I can think of. She just sizzles in every scene. I would love to see her in more movies. All of the cast was good, but she was really extraordinary. The movie has humor and heart.
