[Movie Review] Don't Go Breaking My Heart 2 單身男女2

Don't Go Breaking My Heart 2 Synopsis:
Seemingly to be a fairytale ending of 1st sequel of "DON’T GO BREAKING MY HEART" -- “Earthling” Cheung Shen Ren (Louis Koo) loses Cheng Zixin (Gao Yuanyuan) to the “Martian” Fang Qihong (Daniel Wu) and decides to keep it cool and reverts to singlehood graciously, while Cheng and Fang live happily ever after…… however, the three of them got entangled in an even more complicated relationship in the 2nd sequel.
     After jilted by Cheng, Cheung starts dating “Goddess of Stocks” Yang Yang Yang (Miriam Yeung), who works in an opposite building. Yang has been turning a blind eye to Cheung’s philandering until she meets Paul (Vic Chou), a romantic returnee from France whose devotion has melted her heart.
     Afraid to lose his lover again, Cheung determines to settle down and marry Yang, but fate works in mysterious ways. It turns out that Cheng’s wedding with Fang has been delayed and she is now directly working under Yang. A chance encounter with Cheng again makes Cheung question his decision, because even though he appears to have emerged unscathed from their previous relationship, he was profoundly hurt and still hasn’t fully recovered.
Paul is in love with Yang; Yang has accepted Cheung’s proposal; Cheung is unable to get Cheng off his mind; and Cheng is about to marry Fang. A quadrangular relationship among five people – who is really the love of their life?




單身男女2剧情大纲
「地球男」張申然(古天乐飾)求婚失敗,不敵「火星男」方啟宏(吳彥祖飾)後,張申然選擇瀟灑離開,重返情場,而程子欣(高圆圆飾)亦跟方啟宏快快樂樂地生活……《單身男女》第一集的童話式結尾,現實世界中,故事未完,三人的情感瓜葛在微妙機緣下重遇,再度陷入糾纏。
離開程子欣後,張申然遇上在對面大廈上班的「女股神」楊鴦鴦(楊千嬅飾),二人火速展開戀情。兩位性格相近,楊鴦鴦更對男方的花心行徑採取隻眼開隻眼閉。直至遇上「法國男」程子建(周渝民飾),其浪漫痴情,令楊鴦鴦為之心動。申然恐怕「失愛悲劇」重演,欲和鴦鴦速定終身。天意弄人,子欣一直仰慕股神鴦鴦在股壇上呼風喚雨,早已應徵旗下公司,並成為鴦鴦下屬。程子欣再次在申然眼前出現,令他方寸大亂。因為看似花心豁達的申然,實則情傷不淺,這趟傷口多年來其實未癒合過……更意想不到是,方啟宏在這刻竟向未婚妻大方承諾,讓她再揀一次。

Movie Review:
The movie is the 2nd sequel of the movie, you are still able to catch up what has happened to the 1st sequel with many flash back through out the movie.  The BGR simply got more complicated with the quadrangular relationship among Cheung Shen Ren (Louis Koo), Cheng Zixin (Gao Yuanyuan), Fang Qihong (Daniel Wu), Yang Yang Yang (Miriam Yeung),  and Paul (Vic Chou).
     The creativity of using sticky notes passing message across the 2 glass buildings' windows is contined here and it is really funny seeing message put across to the wrong person, cracking some "jokes".  "Paul the octopus", made its "unexpected cameo appearance" in the movie as Genie the octopus, which I think, is a highlight of the movie. Somehow, it is an important connection to the various characters of the film.
     While many questioned, is it really necessary for the 2nd sequel since the 1st one has the pefect ending, I bet to differ.  We all knew that Cheng accepted Fang proposal as she can't accept the flirty nature of Cheung.  But is Fang really her true love?  Or did she decide to be loved instead of loving? Having a second chance to pick, who will Cheng choose?
     Frankly speaking, most of them who catch the movie do not like the ending, I secretly hope the ending to be otherwise too, but I do understand the rationale of the ending somehow, as I felt that there are some underlying messages. In life, there is always a tendency to struggle between the perceptual and the rational.  But in a love relationship, we sometimes need to follow our heart, not our mind.  We always have expectation for our loved one, however, do we expect him/her to change for us or should we change our expectation and accept who he/she is?  Love, is never a simple affair...




 
 
 


電影觀后感
雖然是第二集,片中有不少倒敘畫面,因此,即使未觀看第一集也依然跟得上劇情。隻是續集中,感情糾葛當中又加入了楊鴦鴦與程子建,使原本張申然,方啟宏與程子欣的三角關系,變得更為復雜!
     片中延續於兩座大樓玻璃窗戶運用便利貼紙傳達訊息,以致鬧出不少烏龍與笑話。疑似章魚"保羅"俯身的章魚"神燈",,可算是片中焦點,也將片中人物連接起來。
     許多人質疑,第二集其實有必要嗎?但,我卻不敢苟同。子欣當初舍申然嫁啟宏,實屬,無法接受申然的花心本色,啟宏真的是她的最愛?真愛嗎?又x或者,她選擇被愛比愛人幸福?再次得以取舍,她又會選擇誰?
     說實在的,大部分已觀看這部電影的觀眾,都不喜歡影片的結局。我心底其實也默默祈求結局並非如此。然而,我也能夠接受這樣的安排,因為覺得這樣的結局,實有它的寓意。人生當中,總難免在理性與感性之間掙扎。但,往往在感情處理當中,我們其實更應該傾聽自己的心。愛一個人,難免對他/她有所要求,但,我們應該執意要對方為我們改變;還是應該改變初衷,而接受原本的他/她?愛,真的沒那麼簡單!
