There are some films we see because we're bored. Others because we've been drugged and forced into the theater. And still others because they star Ge You, the lead actor in "To Live" whose turn with Donald Sutherland in "Big Shot's Funeral" put him on our radar as a very funny comedian. The presence of Shu Qi in this one didn't hurt either.
That said, and considering the sheer inanity that was the plot of the first romantic comedy, it was a miracle we sent Wang Ziqian to see this sequel. And even more of a miracle he came back positive about the film, raving that "the product placement wasn't nearly as bad as I thought!" And while we have to wonder how sincere his sentiment really is, we nonetheless sent him and Gail into the studio for an advanced podcast all about the film that - like it or hate it - is now setting box office records in China. We hope you enjoy the show.
