42 minutes into the ordeal and I called it quits...
Wait, I am getting ahead of myself here.
I sat down in 2020 to watch the 2014 movie "Women Who Flirt" (aka "Sa jiao nu ren zui hao ming") from writers Ho-Cheung Pang and Yee-sum Luk without ever having heard of it. So I didn't know what I was getting myself into, well aside from knowing it to be a Chinese romantic comedy.
Granted, I am not overly much a fan of the romantic comedy genre, but still, I hadn't seen the movie before, so I gave it a chance.
And I lasted 42 minutes, then I just couldn't take anymore of the suffering. The storyline in "Woman Who Flirt" was just utter rubbish, and it didn't help one bit that the characters were flaccid, pointless and unappealing. So I don't think that director Ho-Cheung Pang managed a great deal with this movie.
I wasn't the least bit entertained, so this is not a movie that I will be returning to watch the rest of. I just simply doesn't have any interest in the movie.
My rating of "Woman Who Flirt" is a mere three out of ten stars, and that is mostly because of the production value and the acting performances; as they were both adequate. Just a shame that the rest of the movie was atrociously bad.

Most women know that flirting can sometimes be the most effective way to get what they want, especially when it comes to men. However, flirting is an art that takes talent, and isn't so easy to come by for some... Zhang Hui (Zhou Xun) has a crush on her fellow classmate, Xiao Gong (Huang Xiaoming). However, family pressure to succeed forces him to focus more on his studies rather than relationships, delegating Zhang Hui to the role of "just - friends". But Zhang Hui doesn't give up that easily. After graduation she finds work in Shanghai in order to stay close to Xiao Gong. Matters are complicated, however, when Xiao Gong returns from a business trip to Taiwan with a new girlfriend, Bei Bei. Unable to admit defeat, Zhang Hui seeks the help from a college classmate and her group of friends that have mastered the art of flirting. Overnight, Zhang Hui's appearance, demeanor, and silks of seduction improve dramatically. As Xiao Gong begins to take notice, their relationship begins to progress beyond being "just friends." Never one to back down from a challenge, Bei Bei must plan a counter-offensive in order to maintain her girlfriend-status... From romantic comedy director Pang Ho-Cheung, WOMEN WHO FLIRT is a touching story about the lengths we go to win the hearts of people we love.
