Editor’s Review of Fake Fiction – 6/10
Xu Zheng is a very enjoyable actor and makes Fake Fiction fun to watch. The movie itself though is full of plot holes, suffers from flights of fantasy, badly scripted and a little boring.

She is met at Seattle airport by a taxi driver Frank who takes her to a small home that acts as an illegal hostel for pregnant Chinese women.

Jia Jia is arrogant and uses the power of her boyfriend’s limitless credit card to be obnoxious and alienate herself from her host and the other pregnant women. 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.
