In the end, the only friend she has is Frank and his daughter Julie. Jia Jia’s plan falls apart when her boyfriend is taken by police and her credit card is cancelled.
Editor’s Review of Finding Mr Right – 7/10
The romance in the movie is predictable and a little corny but Tang Wei is brilliant as the bitchy mistress and makes the whole movie come alive. The scene in the beginning at the airport where she non stop abuses Frank for being late is a classic.
