Plot Summary
Zhao (Benshan Zhao) is a poor, aging bachelor who hasn't had luck in love. Thinking he has finally met the woman of his dreams, he leads her to believe he is wealthy and agrees to a wedding far beyond his means. Desperate for funds, he turns to his friends, who are weary of his fanciful schemes. Zhao's best friend (Xuejian Li) hatches the idea to raise the money by refurbishing an abandoned bus they will rent out by the hour - the Happy Times Hotel - to young couples starved for privacy.
