Huang Xiaoming
Deng Chao
Tong Dawei
Du Juan
Wang Zhen

Flitting back and forth between drama and comedy, the film introduces Meng Xiaojun (Deng Chao), Cheng Dongqing (Huang Xiaoming) and Wang Yang (Tong Dawei) in 1983, in the midst of applying for US student visas, where they hope to make their fortunes. When only Meng is successful, Cheng and Wang remain in Beijing as teachers, while Meng gets a job at Columbia University. However, as the years tick by, various professional and romantic failures see the three reunited back in China a decade later.

By this time, Cheng has been dismissed from his university teaching gig and, together with Wang, has set up a hugely successful English language academy, New Dream, in an abandoned factory. Meng comes on board and New Dream goes from strength to strength, helping thousands of Chinese students successfully pass the entrance exams into American universities. That is until the examination board accuses New Dream of stealing its curriculum and giving their students an unfair advantage in their exams.

Quickie Review

All three leads give great performances
Assured pacing, good storytelling, likable characters and a fun examination through friendship and nostalgia come through
The comedy and the drama mix quite well, due to the actor's performances

The spoken English is pretty bad
Tries to accomplish too much, ends up a mixed bag (about China, greed, politics etc.)
The ending is unbelievable
Western viewers (particularly Americans) could end up offended

SCORE: 7/10 (When it sticks with the friendship and nostalgia, the film does really well, but on other themes, not so much. A nice and refreshing, but definitely flawed change of pace from director Peter Chan.)

Thanks for posting this. I really wish the subtitles weren't hard-coded, though, and that separate subs file(s) were available.
