  • And I mean the costumes, locations and casts, not the movies itself
  • These movies are full of expensive and branded clothing and candies for the eyes
  • The queen is rich and has a prince boyfriend who is rich too, the girl next door has a perfect boyfriend, the artistic one has a violent and bad boyfriend, the bubbly one is trying hard to attract guys
  • The worst is, this is the main plot for ALL 4 movies in the series, well with of course some “side plots” that are usually not as important as the girls falling apart
  • No doubt there are a few good things here and there(like the fashion and some witty dialogues) but they are definitely not enough for anyone to finish the series

    The Tiny Times is a romance drama movie series based on novels by Guo Jing Ming. It’s made up of 4 movies (Tiny Time 1-4). The movies are all directed by the author himself.
  • Tiny Times 1-4 (Chinese Movie)
  • The series is glamorous and beautiful. And I mean the costumes, locations and casts, not the movies itself. These movies are full of expensive and branded clothing and candies for the eyes.

  • The guys, for some reasons, will end up having their top gone. They are selling hunks and babes, for to be honest, there is really nothing else more to it.

    So, to summarise the plot of the 4 movies up, it’s basically like this:

  • Tiny Times 1-4 (Chinese Movie)
  • There are 4 good friends – the queen aka the sarcastic one, the girl next door, the artistic and talented one and the bubbly and not-so-pretty one.

    The queen is rich and has a prince boyfriend who is rich too, the girl next door has a perfect boyfriend, the artistic one has a violent and bad boyfriend, the bubbly one is trying hard to attract guys.

    The girls are so close that they lived together. (The queen being rich is able to rent or buy a house so that they can live together.)

  • Tiny Times 1-4 (Chinese Movie)
  • The girls had a fight over something, like “Oh, I slept with your boyfriend.”, “why are you always the queen?” or “Sorry, I betrayed you for money and fame.”

  • Tiny Times 1-4 (Chinese Movie)
  • And then something happened – It can be a letter being sent to them, one of them getting sick or hurt, and they realized how much they can’t live without each other. They run to find each other. (The director loves to do this kind of scene “splitting”, and I guess it has become an icon of the series now.)

  • Tiny Times 1-4 (Chinese Movie)
  • They are back as friends.

    Sounds familiar? You probably have seen at least a few movies with such plot. The worst is, this is the main plot for ALL 4 movies in the series, well with of course some “side plots” that are usually not as important as the girls falling apart.

    I usually don’t mind an overused plot, however to watch it 4 times, is like having a deja vu. And a bad one.

    I find it a pity actually, because I’ve read a few chapters of the novel itself and I find that the director(also the author) did not do justice to his own creation. I really like how he use words to make everything comes alive but he didn’t manage to convert all that to motion pictures.

    Throughout the movies, I find it really hard to connect or feel for the characters due to the quick cuts. There is just not enough time for the emotions to sink in before the scene is cut to the next one.

    I actually did admire myself for being able to finish the series. (I secretly wished for the 6-7 hours wasted to be returned to me as they could be better invested.)

  • Tiny Times 1-4 (Chinese Movie)
  • I guess pretty faces and great bodies just can’t save a really bad movie. This series is just so close to being a total disaster. No doubt there are a few good things here and there(like the fashion and some witty dialogues) but they are definitely not enough for anyone to finish the series.

    A waste of time.

my friends were crazy over the hunks but to be honest, I don’t find the movie really that good.
