The hackneyed plot reallylacks soul. Oh my gosh, I am so disappointed! Forexample the sequences of Charlie's and his friends discussion aboutrelationships is something we have witnessed in numerous sitcoms andmovies. Kyun-woo is shamed into assisting the girl because the other passengers mistakenly think she is his girlfriend. It's not as bad as the trashy Indian version called 'UglyAur Pagli'. All the people I know who have watched this movie was horrified. He lacks the emotion and passion ofthe original character.
One day a beautiful girl came into his life. Cuthbert and Bradford both fail to recreate the integralchemistry of the characters from the original version. Though the ending was okay, but the rest of it all was just pathetic. He didn't even like the girl at first. The only reason to watch the remake is to know how remarkable theKorean version is and how trash this remake could be. Jesse Bradford tries to make the bestof Charlie despite the poor writing.
Hollywood must've done better or at least match the goodness of the original which I think they never will because this film is loved by most people. Rather than a cute romantic comedy created by the natural interactionsof the characters, this movie feels fake, choppy, and poorly made forbudgeted movie. She's better during the more intensemoments. In order to avoid the spoilers, there are few details above about theremake one. This movie suck this movie lack comedy , romance , and acting skills. All the moments that made the original My sassy girl movie memorable were ridiculously and terribly done in the American version. In the meantime, her boy, the boy, was confused.
I find that the American version lacks the charisma of the 2 main characters, and feels very rushed. By trying to Americanism the traits and the relationship it loses a lot--and I don't mean solely because it is American, but because they decide to follow use the trite style of so many American romantic comedies the roommate, the behavior in their relationship rather than try to think about a more coherent purpose for the film. I strongly do not recommend this inposter movie. I must admit I didn't see the originalmovie, but still with the bad U. The producers should learn from Quin Tarantino.
Also Jesse Bradford is not the best choice for this role, but nonetheless the storyline is well written. I think this lady can bring so much more out of her talent. It is a remake, so it's nothing new by default. Nothing to say about this movie! If you haven't, then you can probably watch this first, and then move on to the Korean version. These two versions are just not comparable to each other. In less than half an hour, they seemed bonded so much becauseof no reason.
I had to struggle to finish this film. The background music also doesn't match the standards set by the original one. In the Korean version the Sassy girl was played and presentedbetter. This movie is no match for the original but it's not absolutelyterrible like the Indian one. This removed the one sided ambiguous relationship found in the original and instead substituted Elisha Cuthbert's annoying and not very charming girl for Jun Ji-hyun's portrayal of someone struggling with inner feelings and them manifesting in outwardly through her 'sassy'-ness.
These were later transformed into a best-selling book and the movie follows the book closely. He takes what the life gave him. Please watch the original version! Comedy Drama Romance Based on a series of true stories posted by Ho-sik Kim on the Internet describing his relationship with his girlfriend. I am a fan of real Korean My Sassy Girl movie, this movie I mean from Hollywood is a trash, over acted, boring dialogue and even story is different from original one which is main reason of super bad remake. Also, the subtle changes to the Piano recital made it even worse. So I was curious about this remake more sobecause I liked Bradford in his other movies and Cuthbert is quitepretty.
On one side, she was a vulnerable,heartbroken girl. Yann Samuell's version of 'My Sassy Girl' is pretty much 95% a scene byscene copy of the beautiful Korean film. He had on idea aboutthe accident. You knew there was something intriguing about the girl. A style of romantic movie, I really liked it, and I would recommend it to anybody who is fascinated by the beautiful face of Elisha Cuthbert and who goes into this types of movies. This movie has just completely butchered everything I loved about the original. I would not recommend people who have already seen the Korean version to watch this movie.
In the days he was with the girl, he was silently changed by the girl. This Hollywood remake is atotal failure. I was fortunate enough tosee the Korean version first, if I hadn't this would have lessened theimpact. If you like a foreign movie add subtitle and present it to the American audience. They just basically took the Korean characters and turned them into awful stereotypes.
