Panta O (nl) wrote: English name of the movie (literally "if not sincere, do not disturb") is If You Are the One and this romantic comedy directed by Feng Xiaogang is starring very popular Ge You and Shu Qi. This is one of Feng's top grossing films to date, and has earned over 364 million (US$53.7 million) at the box office. This story is following basic romantic comedy pattern but it is still fun to follow Qin Fen (Ge) who returns to China in his late forties after many years overseas. Almost a failure because he didn't earn any type of degree while he was overseas, he has an amazing skill to convince others. Using this skill he becomes a multimillionaire after selling an "innovative invention" to a high-profile foolish investor (Fan). With his new fortune, Qin decides to put an end to his bachelor life and advertises online for potential partners to apply "if you are the one", that is, only if they are sincere. Ironic observational comedies are Feng's speciality and this one is no exception! Funny encounters are various as the candidates, from a homosexual former friend, a cemetery saleswoman with a thick south-Chinese accent, a pathological amnesiac, an ethnic minority pecking hen, an erotophobic widow, an expectant single mother (Hsu), and a stock-holding trader... the serious part starts when he crosses paths with air stewardess Liang Xiaoxiao (Shu), who previously had a painful love affair with a married man (Fong). But they became friends... what are the chances for more? If you want to enjoy a movie full with airy playfulness, filled with unreserved energy delivering us the predictable romance, this is the one! You will be unembarrassed having a pleasure enjoying the obvious. Master Feng proves that is possible to make a movie with a formula, bringing the formula to vivid life!

Steven S (gb) wrote: I'm not sure what possessed me to watch this one. I was only five when it came out, and now fifteen years later, there I was browsing on Netflix, when I stumbled upon this little movie. It didn't sound too bad, and had a really good cast, so I figured "meh". After viewing it once (and trust me once is enough), I found myself somewhat subdued. I wanted to turn it off so many times, but by the end, I didn't find myself hating it. The head of a terrorist group (I think) named Gabriel, played by John Travolta, enlist the help of a well know hacker named Stanley (Hugh Jackman) so he can steal nine billion dollars. You would think playing the Powerball would be a whole lot simpler. Along the way Stanley must decide if Gabriel's sidekick, Ginger (Halle Berry), is really on his side or the bad guys. All the while, he is trying to make time to see his little girl, and he himself is not sure if he wants to partake in these illegal actions. Oh yeah and Don Cheadle is in it as well. Man, what a mess this movie was. If I am being perfectly honest, I don't fully understand what is going on here. Supposedly the "bad guys" are stealing all this money to actually help the government. They clearly state that doing this will help the economy, and some other nonsense. So... why are they bad? Why is the government trying to stop people that are trying to help? By the end, it doesn't really matter, you're just glad the credits are rolling. The plot is all over the place, the acting is hilarious, the dialogue is silly, and it seemed like everything these characters were doing was pointless. Actually, the ending confirms that. Everything the "good guys" were doing ended up not mattering. There are certain scenes as well that just don't make sense. I don't mean to put spoilers, but it's just Swordfish so it doesn't matter. There is a scene where Gabriel is going to kill Ginger if Stanley doesn't hack something correctly. But in the end, it turns out Ginger is really working for Gabriel the whole time, so why would he kill her? That entire scene is for no reason. I swear, the only thing missing from this movie, were bloopers during the end credits to show that maybe they were at least having fun. There is one credit I can give to this movie, the action sequences are somewhat decent. They were enjoyable to watch, but much like the plot itself, those parts are messy as well. Instead of coming off as suspenseful and intense, the sequences actually end up being pretty funny. There was one car chase scene in particular, in which I actually laughed out loud. During the car chase, Gabriel stands up in the car, strikes sort of a Jesus pose, with a gun in each hand, and fires at two cars simultaneously. Perhaps because it was John Travolta, but that scene was just hilarious to me. Like I said, some of the action works, but most of the time it does not. Now let's talk about the cast, because there is some huge talent being showcased here. Hugh Jackman had just come off of doing X-Men at the time, so perhaps it isn't his fault that he was in this. He was not a huge star yet. The same goes for Berry. She was not a huge star at the time, and to this films credit, it did give her her first nude scene. You can never go wrong there. Then there is Don Cheadle. Why he was in this, I will never know. Maybe he needed to pay a bill, because I didn't even feel like he was doing a good job here. In fact, most of the cast looks like they are taking this seriously. They all try their best, but some of the lines they have to say, and the way they are being directed to act is just laughable. The only redeemer here is Travolta. It is nothing new for him to do zany characters, that call for an over-actor. That is exactly what he is. Not too good, but at the very least, entertaining. However, I can't say I don't recommend this one. It's so unintentionally funny, I am compelled to say check it out. It is only an hour and a half, and hey, it was pretty fun to see a younger Jackman and Berry act together. For what it's worth, the nudity isn't half bad either. In fact, if I were to rate this movie purely on how great Berry looks, I would give it 5 out of 5. But alas, this is not porn, and I am not thirteen. Besides, we have Google Images. So I have to rate this movie for what it is, and it is a terrible film. If I were to rate this movie, I would give it 1 1/2 out of 5 stars. But hey! Check it out, you might get a good laugh out of the deal!

Dan I (nl) wrote: I cannot fault Robert Rodriguez for making films that his children can watch in opposition to the other films he makes which his children likely can't watch for a few more years. Even though this film got dated pretty quickly from a visual standpoint, it was cheeky and endearing and the comedy was tolerable. It's tough to hate on a film with such a solid goal that is met quickly and maintained for a solid hour and a half.

Andrew B (au) wrote: I have to be totally honest here. Fresh out of high school my father took me to see this movie and I never had seen Daniel Day Lewis in a movie, in fact I don't think I really ever heard of him. I obviously knew that Martin Scorsese and the word Gangs that I was interested. Plop in Leonardo Dicaprio on the beginning of his road to becoming a phenomenal actor and we have a really good movie. No this is not about Gangs of New York as in the modern day bloods and crips in the inner city. This takes place during the civil war when the Natives of New York led by Daniel Day Lewis playing William the butcher Cunning did not take kindly to the influx of Irish immigrants inhabiting their territory in a small pocket of New York known as the 5 points. Gangs of New York is a stylish but yet raw and gritty and extremely violent movie. On to Daniel Day Lewis. I was dumbfounded and felt rather stupid that this was the first time I had seen him in action on the big screen. I was blown away by his presence in this film. Every second he is on the screen you literally cannot take your eyes away from the film. He takes this movie from being pretty good, to REALLY good. Cameron Diaz is pretty terrible as she usually is in every movie.

Patrick Y (it) wrote: Probably best thought of as a ghost story, Candyman offers a standard balance of spooks and scares. While the plot takes many liberties with coincidences, the set design helps add tension to the atmosphere, and Virginia Madsen is believable as a woman haunted by a terrifying urban legend.

Electric Boogaloo was better this this the only thing that was cool about this movie was the break dance scenes. I mean I know that this was in the 80's but bleh.

Kathryn R (nl) wrote: Re-watched this film recently, and ... wow. Eric Roberts' performance is highly UNDER-rated! He nails his role as psychopath Snider. On the flip-side, his performance also gives hints of obvious personal trauma & issues which contributed to Snider's psychopathy.The Kim Kardashians and plastic, cookie-cutter women of today could learn what true beauty is, by watching this film. RIP, Dorothy. You were a TRUE beauty, and the world won't see another the likes of you.

Jim F (kr) wrote: This is story of Supergirl and Superman's attempt to train her. Batman has a very minor roll in the film and only gets billing because Batman sells. Supergirl gets sent away to Amazon in order train with Wonder woman. Kent changes his mind and tries to get her to come back to Metrapologypse, in standard teenage fashion she goes all hay wire and ends up joining the dark side. (Well, Darkseid, to be precise) I bet you can end up where she ends...Standard story line, nothing to write home about but nothing to be upset about either.
