The dialogue kills me.
30 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

When I was in Seoul, my cousin recommended this to me and pointed out that it was a "buddy comedy". I wasn't expecting much but found myself laughing riotously.

The characters are all crazy. They fit right in an anime series somewhere with their odd, yet, approachable quirks. The plot is rather straight forward which makes this movie so twisted because of the goofy characters. The dialogue kills me. They're all mad. Each and every one of them.

This is a comedy so you'll have to suspend your belief at times otherwise you'll overanalyze and probably miss the joke, altogether. I won't get too ahead of myself and give away anything but if you're looking to have a laugh and you're ok with dealing with a bunch of goofballs running, driving, digging mad across your screen, this one should do the trick.

8/10
