YesAsia Editorial Description

Singaporean heartthrob Leon Jay Williams (movie Jump, idol drama My Lucky Star) and Shanghai actress Crystal Huang (Just Another Pandora's Box) star hand in hand in the hit 2008 period comedy Almost Perfect. Famous Chinese MV director Wang Yuelun (Panda Express) directs a cast that also includes Liu Hua (Crazy Stone), Deng Jiajia (Chinese Paladin), and Li Xiang (Looking For Jackie) in a hilarious adventure of a prince who would rather be a craftsman.

Zhu Xiaotian (Leon Jay Williams) aspires to be a master carpenter, even though he is the crown prince of the Ming Empire. To fulfill his dream, he sneaks out of the palace to find the "Carpentry Bible" authored by the legendary Lu Ban. In the guise of a civilian, Zhu meets kung fu girl Tang Xiaodie (Crystal Huang), and together they embark on a quest for the elusive tome. In fact, the book contains directions to a secret treasure buried in the royal catacombs, hence many people are also looking for it. Meanwhile, imperial enforcer Hong Gaitian (Liu Hua) mistakes Zhu and Tang for a couple of tomb raiders, and takes them on a relentless pursuit...

One Thing Short??? Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
Perhaps it is because my Chinese language skills are limited and I must rely on the English subtitles, which for this film often are incomprehensible. Perhaps it is because I am not Chinese and am missing some of the cultural cues present in the movie. Or perhaps it is because this film is ineptly directed and scripted. Whatever the reason, "Almost Perfect" seemed far from perfect to me.

A master carpenter named Lu Ban created some wild inventions, such as a rocking chair which can make the person rocking in the chair become younger and a bird-like contraption which actually can fly. Before he passes away, he creates a book that includes detailed drawings of his inventions and, oddly, also includes directions to a buried treasure. The book bears the strange title "One Thing Short", at least that's what the English subtitles call it. The prince of the realm (Leon Jay Williams) just happens to love carpentry and, shedding his royal garments, ventures out into the world in search of Lu Ban's secret book. He's interested in it for the woodworking designs it contains. Unfortunately for the prince, a host of people are seeking the book for less honorable reasons; they hope to recover the buried treasure.

The disguised prince's search for the book leads him to cross paths with lovely swordswoman Xiaodie (Crystal Huang). They fall in love and throw in with each other to find the book. Their search leads them to Longmen Town, at which the book has found its way into the home of the town's honcho, whose daughter (Deng Jiajia) also falls in love with the disguised prince. With the daughter pursuing the prince, the prince pursuing the book for its carpentry designs, and everyone else seeking the book for the treasure map, chaos and confusion ensues.

"Almost Perfect" attempts to create the kind of fast-paced zany mayhem that one finds in just about any of Stephen Chow's historical comedies. Alas, it greatly misses the mark. Whatever charm the movie holds develops from the romantic triangle that grows among the characters played by Leon Jay Williams, Crystal Huang, and Deng Jiajia. The film ends without a real resolution. It appears that the filmmakers hoped that there would be a sequel. Fortunately for all of us, we have been spared that sequel. "Almost Perfect" was created by a first-time movie director from a script written by a first-time scriptwriter and all of that inexperience shows.
