Meg Ryan stars as an aging translator who got a big contract to translate the classic Chinese tale. The hitch is that she’s lost her passion for the work and the Chinese billionaire underwriting it is really demanding and wants his own stamp on the story but she wants to be true to the original. Also, there is a romantic subplot with his assistant (can be male or female, female might actually work better for the story)
Title:Money, Sex, and Who You’d Be Willing to Date
In bustling New York City, three best friends in their late twenties – Sam, an ambitious stockbroker, Alex, a passionate artist, and Jamie, a tech entrepreneur – find themselves at crossroads in their personal and professional lives.
Sam, who values wealth above all, is on the brink of a major career breakthrough, but his obsession with money strains his relationship with his long-time girlfriend, Mia. Alex, the hopeless romantic, juggles a series of flings, seeking a deeper connection but often prioritizing physical attraction. Jamie, the cerebral and ethical one, grapples with the moral implications of their startup’s new direction which could potentially lead to immense wealth but at a societal cost.
Their lives intertwine when they make a bet to step into each other’s dating lives: Sam must date someone with no interest in wealth, Alex must pursue a relationship that’s not initially fueled by physical attraction, and Jamie must date someone whose values clash with their own. This social experiment, meant as a playful challenge, quickly evolves into a profound journey.
As they navigate their new romantic endeavors, they encounter a series of comedic and dramatic situations. Sam falls for a passionate school teacher who challenges his materialistic views, Alex becomes enamored with a brilliant scientist who doesn’t fit his usual physical type, and Jamie finds themselves unexpectedly attracted to a savvy business investor with ruthless methods.
Throughout the film, they confront their prejudices, fears, and vulnerabilities. They start understanding that love and personal connection transcend beyond money, physical attraction, and similar worldviews. In this process, their friendship is tested but also deepens.
The climax comes as each must make a crucial decision about their future – choices that pit their newfound insights against their longstanding beliefs and ambitions.
Money, Sex, and Who You’d Be Willing to Date is a tale of self-discovery, friendship, and the complex interplay between love, ambition, and personal values. It ends on a note of hope and introspection, as each character steps into a future with a newfound understanding of what truly matters in relationships and life.
