Muhlach plays the role of Umboy, a notary public attorney who earns a living by notarizing important documents and other papers, while Velasquez on the other hand plays the role of Berns, a professional documents fixer. Every time Berns needs the help of a notary public, she goes to Umboy to "legalized" everything. This "legalization" process of documents was somehow Umboy does not agree with Berns. Their different ideology and principles in life have created a cat-and-dog fight situation between the two. But what's supposed to be a misunderstanding between the two of them will likely to create a blossoming relationship. Bound with their principles in life, how do you think the two will end up together — to the dark side where both of them will be living a dishonest life where they fix documents illegally or to the light side where everything else is in correct and honest manner?

I really wanted to love this film, unfortunately I did not. Jokes about fat people, disabled and the same old Brent racism just didn't work. Maybe get Merchant on board for a sequel? Also how many times do you want to do that stupid laugh ?

The jokes were pretty patronising and the storyline was confusing in some parts. The animation didn't look too bad, but the attention to detail wasn't that great. I also found the singing annoying and the main character, who was a cockney elf, was just a bit to silly for me. I know that the movie was made for kids who still believe in Santa and the whole reindeer and sleigh myth, but I honestly think that kids are a bit too advanced nowadays to find this movie watchable. As I hadn't heard of the film before I watched it, I wasn't overly disappointed, but I honestly think that it was a waste of time and money.Round-Up:Martin Freeman's career seems to have its up and downs, but I can't fault him for trying out every genre. From being a porn star in Love Actually to being a murderer in the Fargo TV series and then switching to play the main character in the Hobbit franchise, he has definitely had some different challenges to sink his teeth into. There was also the weird and obscure Hitchiker's Guide To The Galaxy, were he also played the main character pretty well, but Sam Rockwell stole the limelight. I personally find his, very English dry sense of humour, the same in all of his movies, which is why I liked him in the serious role in Fargo. Anyway, I doubt that this movie will hurt his career, but it definitely won't be one that will boost his portfolio.Budget: $7.5millionWorldwide Gross: N/AI recommend this movie to people who are into there animation comedies about an elf who is trying to save Santa from an evil doer who wants to know the secret behind his time travelling sleigh. 2/10

Tony L (us) wrote: Easily, this is one of my top ten favorite films of the year. It's a simple yet powerful story of a young orphan, Thuy (Han Thi Pham), who runs away from her Uncle's Bamboo factory and his exploitation. Once she gets to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Thuy survives by selling postcards and subsequently hawking flowers. It is also in the city that Thuy meets Lan (Cat Ly), the flight attendant, and Hai (Thu Lu Le), the zookeeper. As Thuy learns of Lan's and Hai's loss of love, she finds a way to get them together and ultimately create a family of her own. Director Stephane Gauger, an alumni of CalState Fullerton, has a created a gem of a movie. The writing (in Vietnamese) is clean, spare, and unsentimental. As for the performances, Cat Ly and Thu Lu Le (also great in The Buffalo Boy) are great in capturing their characters. However, the heartbeat of the movie belongs to the amazing Han Thi Pham, who plays Thuy, the orphan girl. Pham, in her very first movie debut, does an incredible job of capturing the audience's heart with such perceptiveness and precision. Her performance is heartbreaking without any adorned sentimentality and cuteness. This film has been shown at various film festivals for a couple of years. I am so glad that it finally gets a wide (tiny) distribution to the public. Go see it! " -

Sometimes it is hard for people to see through the black and white, but to me, this movie was not black and white at all.

Mattias E (jp) wrote: Newcomer Hou Chi-Jan apparently takes a page out of Kim Ki Duk's notebook for his supernatural love story One Day, perhaps aiming for arthouse cred and the festival circuit. As it turns out, One Day has more mass appeal than originally expected, though, partially thanks to the disarming innocence and popstar cuteness of leads Bryan Chang and Nikki Hsieh. In spite of the intricate fantasy plot and artistic cinematography evoking the realism of the Taiwanese new wave, One Day never truly breaks out of it's teen romance-cage, and is actually all the better for it.
