Every few years there is a chick flick (or drama) with the standard tropes packaged in different ways and sold to a new generation of women looking for life and love as a young adult. I’m beyond the target demographic so what ropes me into eagerly anticipating upcoming C-movie Go Lala Go 2 is purely for the cast, consisting of three of my all time favorite Taiwanese actors in Ariel Lin, Vic Zhou, and Bolin Chen. It’s basically fan fiction dream casting as reality, how could I not watch. While I don’t care about the story all that much, if it turns out to be smartly written that’s even better, and based on the recently released first movie trailer I’m not all that worried it’s going to suck. The movie follows Ariel Lin as the titular Du Lala as she settles into a professional management level career with Zai Zai as her hot boyfriend, but finds both shaken up with the arrival of a work/love rival played by Nana, and Bolin Chen’s new bad boy hottie who tries to lure her to become an even more fabulous version of herself. I’m so not feeling bad for her, and only wonder what fairy godmother I need to conjure up to give me the same predicament.
