Janina S (es) wrote: In many regards, looking at the plot elements, it's basically a poor imitation of Singing in the Rain. The use of subtitles was inconsistent, so many conversation were missed. Neither of the main characters were relatable. The progression of the story itself was a bit choppy. In the end it was rather dull, and the characters were entirely forgettable.

I read the synopsis as well, so I understood what was going on. I didn't care for the story really, it's stupid, and I didn't really like Alan's character he was such a wuss and lazy too. This movie could have been a lot, lot, lot better.
