The remake of a twenty year old movie that was itself not very good feels like a lesson in pointlessness. Except the trailer for the C-movie version of My Best Friend’s Wedding actually works for me, and it’s solely on the charisma and charm of leading lady Shu Qi much like original lead Julia Roberts sold the half-baked script. The movie is out and apparently getting pretty good buzz which isn’t surprising since rom-coms are cotton candy audience picks and this one has the additional visual splendor being a London backdrop that is more interesting than the characters played by male lead Feng Shao Feng and Victoria Song as his sweet as pie fiancee. It’s Shu Qi, the gorgeous location shoot, and her white knight played by Rhydian Vaughn that has me going mmmmmm yes, more of these two please.
