The movie is about a young girl named Yishu who believes she has no luck at all and she blames her name for it. One day she starts receiving phone calls from people thinking that she is the popular singer Tianyou. It turns out that someone has leaked 600 phone numbers of famous people to the internet and Yishu's phone number got mixed up in the bunch. She finds it annoying at first but soon she receives a text message from Xiaowen, who is the singer in an amateur rock band. He wishes to write a song for Tianyou and wants Yishu -who he thinks is Tianyou's assistant- to deliver the song to Tianyou. Tianyou is a popular singer, but hasn't had a hit number lately. Because of this she gets pressured by her cruel agent into recording an album that she doesn't want to record, because it doesn't contain any good songs. This decision gets her into a lot of trouble...

I really liked this film found it endearing it feels like the director+writer really put a lot of love into its creation, but I can see how some might find it flawed. Thamas Jane is such a undiscovered well of acting ability. I'm not sure if I've disliked any film he's been in(yes even punisher). The music of the time was sooo important to the beat generation thus it makes sense that this film has great tune after great tune both blues jazz and rock precides within. Thou most ppl complain about Keanu's stilted acting I think he was ok in this small part as a loser buddy to Neal who ironically brings neal down sorta like many ppl think Keanu brings so many films down. In the end this is just a good story of life and love of a man and how difficult life can be.

Edith N (ru) wrote: And It Only Took Me Seven Months to Watch It! I got this at about the same time as I was watching all the other movies starting in "once upon a time," not to mention various sequels. However, Graham rearranged the bedroom right around then, and he put the disc somewhere. Ever since then, I've been on a two-at-a-time plan on Netflix and halfheartedly looking for this disc. Yesterday, I told Graham that he had to find it, and he finally did. So I have finally watched it. I'll return it tomorrow and stop being embarrassed by the fact that Netflix keeps telling me that they sent me this disc so it would get to me on December first. The worst part is probably that it wasn't even something I'd really been looking forward to seeing. It was something I'd always kind of meant to get around to, but I didn't really know what it was about, and if I had, I'm not sure I would have cared. But you'd better believe I finished it! It is some time around the turn of the last century. Western powers are influencing events in China more than the average Chinese person is able to. In what Wikipedia leads me to believe is Guangzhou, there is a doctor and martial arts instructor called Wong Fei-hung (Jet Li). He doesn't get along with the governor (Wong Chi-yeung), whom he believes to be in the pocket of the Western powers. Not without reason. There is also a gang of extortionists from Shaho who are trying to take over a local theatre for reasons that I missed aside from the hope of protection money. What's more, he is in love with "Aunt 13" (Rosamund Kwan), but she's an elder sort-of relative, so the relationship is forbidden by tradition. So there's the conflict between Wong Fei-hung and the gang, between Wong Fei-hung and the Western powers, between Wong Fei-hung and the governor, between Wong Fei-Hung and tradition. And of course, that latter is pretty much the only one that can't be solved by kicking people in the head. I'm not sure that I would have gotten this in the first place if I'd known more about it. I probably would have, but to be blunt, I don't much care for most martial arts movies. I'm amused that, toward the end, Iron Robe Yim (Shi-Kwan Yen) gets his hair cut off and suddenly seems to be making jet engine sounds whenever he moved. There were a couple of other weird bits of sound effect that amused me. However, yes, it was mostly about kicking people in the head, and I was considerably more interested in the actual historical events. Assuming there are any; as I've confessed before, Chinese history isn't my strong suit. Even relatively modern Chinese history. Still, it really was important to see the influences of Western countries on China at the time, and watching China change from an isolationist Eastern power to a player on the world stage would have been considerably more interesting to me than even the flashiest fight involving flaming arrows. I'll also confess a certain curiosity as to exactly when this is set. There's a lot of talk about hauling Chinese workers across the Pacific to America, lured by gold. Now, the Chinese are an enormous part of the history of my home state of California, but when our gold rush started, the historical Wong Fei-hung was two. The two American flags IMDb mentions as appearing in the film are a modern fifty-star flag, obviously anachronistic, and a thirty-one star flag, which stopped being used in 1858, around the time Wong Fei-hung turned eleven. While Jet Li was young in this, twenty-eight and eleven are different. Though I'm certainly not going to assume that, because Jet Li was twenty-eight, Wong Fei-hung was the same age in the movie. That's almost never the case, and while I will make a similar assumption for fictional characters, I don't for historical figures, because the assumption isn't always true and is only worth making when it doesn't really matter. Here, it kind of does. Actually, it turns out that this is actually like [i]Six Times Upon a Time Plus a TV Series in China[/i]. I'm certainly not going to bother tracking down any of the rest of it, because I wasn't all that excited with the first one. I was surprised enough to discover that the library didn't have any of them. I suppose I can see some of the influence of the various other "once upon a time"-titled films on this one, but it's not as epic and not as interesting. Honestly, I would have much preferred a proper, sweeping epic to yet another martial arts film. Actually, Jet Li would go on to make another movie about similar situations in [i]Fearless[/i], which I found much more interesting. I sometimes think that we Americans would know history better if people make better historical films, and that certainly includes knowing the history of other countries. After all, we think we know all about Scotland because we've seen [i]Braveheart[/i], right? But you can't even pretend to know all about history from having seen this.
Paul V (fr) wrote: American Graffiti was one of the greatest films of the 70s. This isn't, but it's still not the worst. You'll get a couple laughs, the entire original cast (minus Richard Dreyfuss), and some decent storytelling. Sometimes the film tries to be too artsy with multiple shots on the screen and flickering lights in one scene. Also, the stories don't tie together like they did in the first movie. No longer a 50s/early 60s movie, so it loses conderable feel. Music selection is not as good as the first. Still, some good acting and an interseting 60s setting make up for it a bit. Overall a decent movie, but you must see the original first, or else this movie becomes extremely sub-par. Otherwise, it's par, but in any case, nothing compared to the original.

Some scenes in this film look terribly cheap & the plot is simple, familiar and predictable. Yet there are some funny moments. Adam Copeland aka Edge shows signs of acting potential and now that his WWE Career is over he'll more than likely end up in film. Jamie Kennedy plays the role of annoying sidekick fine and the chemistry between the two keeps the film afloat.
