The Good, the Bad and the Opposites Attract:

• Movies about opposites attract are quite mainstream, it's just a matter of using them in the right setting with a refreshing plot, and this is what the movie is trying to do, by combining this common genre with beautifully shot dishes, and let's just say that the result was quite satisfying.

• Forget about the fact that the movie is filled with visually astounding-looking food and mouth-watering dishes, just looking at Takeshi Kaneshiro in perfectly tailored suits and charming charisma are more than enough to make the audience drool.

• The main attraction of this movie has to be the food as the romance part is quite common and not exactly refreshing or new, even though both Kaneshiro and Zhou Dongyu delivered great performances respectively - it's just there's nothing new that they can offer.
