Storyline

My Sassy Girl is the tale of the first and last time Charlie Bello falls in love. From their initial meeting, trouble is the name of the game. Imagine an amorphous mass of dating disasters and you get an idea of the relationship between the young couple. Some mysterious force with the strength of gravity between two planets must be at play between Charlie and Jordan as the relationship truly makes no sense on the surface. Everything seems pitted against the two of them. Things suddenly come to a halt when the two write letters confessing their love for each other. Agreeing to meet a year later to read the love letters together, Charlie and Jordan go their separate ways. Written by Marx-Michael

Could be Good If you Haven't Seen the Original
17 February 2010 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

2 Stars goes for my 2 favorite actor and actress Bradford and Cuthbert. They at least deserve a praise since they have tried their best to portray the characters from the original. It might have been very difficult for them to work to meet the expectations of the fans of the original version.

I watch this film (DVD) because I was curious how Hollywood would remake my one of the favorite Korean film "Yeopgijeogin geunyeo" which is the original and the best of all! The other reason is I like Jesse Bradford and Elisha Cuthbert.

This remake really sucks! The film might have been good if I haven't seen the original in the first place. I think(in my own opinion)because western culture differ so much with Asians so if you let Americans do the humor of Asians it will not work as fine. Also the delivery of the lines and portrayal of the characters has a different impact when said and portrayed by Asians compared to Americans if the humor is intended to be portrayed by Asians for the Asian culture. But Yeopgijeogin geunyeo however happens to be funny and very good to other nationalities too.

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.
