But can she keep her true love? Written by
The movie's DVD cover quoted Movie Buzzers with "bursting with energy.. laugh out found funny.. an absolute joy". Really? I wonder if I watched the same movie, because I didn't find any of those statements to be true.
It is rare that I turn off a movie before having actually seen the entire movie, and even more so rare that I turn off an Asian movie prematurely. But that happened about halfway through "How to Use Guys With Secret Tips" (aka "Nam-ja sa-yong-seol-myeong-seo"). I just didn't enjoy this movie one bit and there wasn't anything appealing to the movie, aside from the lead actress.
The story is about Choi Bo-Na (played by Lee Si-Young) who is overlooked and underpaid, slaving away for a director who doesn't acknowledge her. When she comes across an eccentric guy selling various user manuals. Here she find a manual to turn her life around.
This movie was weak for a comedy, and I didn't laugh once before getting up halfway through and turning it off. And there wasn't any real chemistry between the lead actress and actor.
Usually Third Window films put out some great movies, but "How to Use Guys With Secret Tips" was a swing and a miss.
