What does “非诚勿扰(fēi chéng wù rǎo)” mean?

非(fēi) means “non-“and 勿(wù) means” do not.” They both convey a negative meaning. 诚(chéng) is generally understood as being honest or sincere, and 扰(rǎo) comes with the meaning of disturbing or interrupting.

Thus, the phrase’s basic connotation is “don’t disturb unless you are sincere.”

It is possible for you to see this phrase in many situations in daily life, such as on matching or dating websites (like or even on the posters for selling various items(like eBay).

In the movie, this phrase means “don’t contact me if you are not the girl I’m looking for”.
What is the movie about?
