Saw it for Shu Qi...not Jackie Chan
Perhaps I'm in the minority, but Shu Qi was the reason I wanted to see this film...Jackie Chan's appearance was a positive, but not the driving reason. I must admit I had my concerns, as I didn't care very much for "Love Me, Love My Money," (another Shu Qi/Tony Leung movie), nor for "Kung Fu Hustle." I thought perhaps that humor in Chinese culture does not translate well with Western audiences.

So when I saw "Gorgeous," I was pleasantly surprised. While I haven't seen many Chinese romantic comedies, this was by far the best one I've seen. Shu Qi - one of the most beautiful women in the world, I think - is absolutely adorable in her role. Jackie Chan does his usual great job, although I was surprised that Tony Leung would take such a minor role in this movie.

I wish I had seen the uncut version, but then again, perhaps it would have dragged the film down for me, and/or had Chinese cultural references that would have made no sense to me.

I can understand if people were disappointed in this film if they were expecting a Jackie Chan action flick. There is action, but it's also a romantic comedy.
