Goofy and dumb Korean sex comedy
11 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is really a graphic sex movie or anything like that. And I do like some underdog movies, but this one just came up short. It's like watching a super goofy supernatural Korean version of the movie with Tobey Maquire and Jake Gyllenhaal...Sort of, kinda. The whole premise is dumb and it tries to go for that dumb Hollywood comedy direction. The plot is basically about a guy that has insecurity issues, thus he drinks a magic potion which gives him a large penis. And what he does with his new found gift. You aren't really going to get anything out of this movie. I personally found is slight amusing at certain points, but when it comes down to it. It's just another Korean sex comedy.

4.8/10
