Time Out says

1 out of 5 stars

The first Chinese-language production for 20th Century Fox is a super-slick, multistrand narrative about sweltering summertime hookups that effectively forgoes story for a succession of shots demonstrating how pretty young things perspire under bright lights. A punk girl falls for an air-conditioner repairman; a chauffeur exchanges anonymous texts with a foot masseuse; and a food critic reunites with a sushi chef, "because wasabi and soy sauce are meant to be together." It's less a film than one long advertisement for itself---and for the fact that mindless entertainment truly knows no borders.
