200 Pound Beauty is a MUST WATCH!!!
10 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is able to bring a complex issue onto the audience and present it in such a warm, light-hearted and understanding manner. At first, I thought I would be in for a superficial and callous movie about plastic surgery. OH was I ever more wrong. 200 Pound Beauty manages to capture the complexity of the issue without it ever bearing down on the film. It is an extremely funny, witty and light-hearted commentary on the trend of plastic surgery in Korea. And it does so with grace, respect and understanding of the subject matter. Everyone must watch this film. No other film in recent history has ever captured my heart and imagination so well as this one did. I dare say it rivals the storytelling of My Sassy Girl; one of my all-time favorite films. This is a "MUST WATCH" for all those who love romantic comedies.
