Surprisingly funny.
6 August 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Considering the subject matter I was a little nervous that this would become whiny or preachy but it does neither, it stays light-hearted and funny through-out.

The acting is good, Hyo-jin Kong delivers an excellent performance as the slightly demented lead and Seo Woo is surprisingly good as her partner in exile from normal society.

The plot is straight-forward with a mostly harmless but obsessed stalker trying to get her man while has no interest as well as a wife and another paramour.

There are lots of little bits of humour as the two girls plans progress and come close to working but not quite succeeding, the cyber sex scenes are especially funny.

This is all situational humour, no slap-stick or word play just characters doing things that seem normal to them but not to anyone else or situations that get out of control, and there is plenty of it.

The ending lets the film down a bit, the reveal with the wife has very little humour and goes on far too long.

Still an enjoyable comedy with some genuine laugh-out-loud moments.
