"...an overly schmaltzy romantic comedy..."
Chinese production Love In Space is an overly schmaltzy romantic comedy that never really succeeds in making up for what it lacks in substance with its abundance of heart.
The film chronicles the romantic exploits of a mother and her three daughters who have all been dispersed around the world. Rose (Rene Liu) is a competitive astronaut who happens to find herself on a mission with former love Michael (Aaron Kwok), reluctantly discovering that she may still have feelings for him. Middle child Lily (Kwai Lun-mei) is attempting to make a life for herself in Sydney, Australia when she falls for charming garbage man Jonny (Eason Chan), a circumstance complicated by the fact that she has an excessive fear of germs. Youngest daughter Peony (Angelababy) is a successful actress in Beijing who decides to go incognito as a waitress as research for a forthcoming role. There she develops feelings for the poor but well-intentioned Wenfeng (Jing Boran) but the couples' drastically different backgrounds threatens their happiness.
Although possessing a highly likeable ensemble cast and charming characters, unfortunately the film's numerous clichés and generic plot devices prohibits it from distinguishing itself in a marketplace overcrowded with similar fare.
Disc includes deleted scenes.
