The way sex comedies should be., 18 May 2006
Author: javierw from Germany

I watched Sex is Zero again last night and remember how good it was, with all the awful comedies coming out of Hollywood right now, this is a breath of fresh air. I remember the first thing I heard from this movie was that it was the Korea's American Pie, but for my taste Sex is Zero is much better. You get all gags a sex comedy should have plus more. If you are a fan of Asian Cinema you know they like to throw dramatic twists even in comedies and Sex is Zero is not the exception. For example, let's say the do an Action comedy in Hong Kong like Rush Hour, near the end one of the 2 main characters is going to die, that throws a punch to the viewer out of nowhere, some people hate that and others like me love it, enough of Hollywood endings. Not that I'm saying anybody dies in this movie, this one is a Sex Comedy, not and Action movie. Ha Ji Won plays the lead female character, she is a sweetheart, before watching this I saw her in a Horror movie called Nightmare, she is my favorite Korean actress, last movie I saw her in is Duelist, you should look for that movie too, is one of the best pieces of cinematography I've ever seen. I'm Chang Jung plays the lead male character and he does a great job, the guy is really funny and also shows he can act when he has to. I got both the Korean DVD and the US DVD, both are great, but I got the US DVD because the extra material comes also with subtitles, one thing that the Korean release doesn't have, plus it also has a very entertaining commentary track by mrskin, he had a lot to comment since they didn't went shy on the nudity factor. Hope they keep releasing Korean movies with this quality in the US. So don't wait until Sex is Zero is remake by some money hungry studio, do yourself a favor and watch it now, you wont be disappointed.
