Less graphic sex comedy than Sex and Zen, but still worth a look.
8 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is a sex comedy, and has a definite Korean cultural bias.

So far no surprises, right?

However, it does have its heart warming moments, as well as the requisite WTF you expect from a certain kind of Asian comedy... I really felt the need to refute tester reviewer, as I felt his review was inaccurate. So spoiler time: if having sex with a bear, epic synchronized urination on the scale of a Vegas water feature, and complex moral redemption are ending the movie in the "usual way"... Well then listen to the other review of this movie. Otherwise, you may find it to be just the thing to fill that late night itch. Keep in mind this is not porno, but is definitely adult themed.
