"Waiting Alone provides honest laughter and touching moments
as it invades the modern romantic comedy turf of Woody Allen and Nora Ephron.
… All thesps show good comic timing, and Xia [Yu] is especially good as the lovelorn Chen
and Gong Beibi also impresses as [Jing]. ...Will leave the cinema with a joyous bang."
