Description: Sophie (Zhang Zi Yi) is a talented cartoonist who seems to have it all; a successful career, great friends, and the perfect, handsome, fiance, Jeff (So Ji Sub), a surgeon who her mother adores. So when Jeff is stolen away by Anna (Fan Bing Bing), a beautiful actress, Sophie wants revenge. The first step in her plan, "Sympathy and Understanding", fails, as does the second step, "Nostalgia". Sophie's friends invite her out to a party to cheer her up, but she runs into Jeff and Anna. She also runs into Gordon (Peter Ho), a photographer, who apparently has been recently dumped by Anna. She quickly elicits his help in her revenge campaign. With Gordon, Sophie continues to implement the other steps of her plan. But "Reinvention" fails. So does "Entrapment". Gordon reluctantly agrees to help Sophie with "Arousing Jealousy", where they both behave like lovers in front of Jeff and Anna. Finally, something in her plan begins to work: Jeff seems to be jealous. A thrilled Sophie is convinced that the next step, "Search and Rescue", will be her final winning move. But Gordon refuses to help, and confesses that he has fallen in love with Sophie, who, sooner than expected, is confronted by a repentant Jeff who wants her back! Who should she choose for true love and happiness?
First comedy I have seen starring Zhang Zi Yi and she rocked it. Although I am used seeing her supernatural fighting skills she actually is a well rounded actress. The plot was a bit predictable but still very entertaining and light. The animation was spot on and fit the story line well.( Unlike some comedies that just through it in for no apparent reason.) If you liked It Started With A Kiss, Boys Over Flowers, and Full House then you might like this romantic comedy. It has similar elements, comedic timing and a hapless heroine that you can’t help but to root for all the way throughout the film..
