Storyline

My Sassy Girl is the tale of the first and last time Charlie Bello falls in love. From their initial meeting, trouble is the name of the game. Imagine an amorphous mass of dating disasters and you get an idea of the relationship between the young couple. Some mysterious force with the strength of gravity between two planets must be at play between Charlie and Jordan as the relationship truly makes no sense on the surface. Everything seems pitted against the two of them. Things suddenly come to a halt when the two write letters confessing their love for each other. Agreeing to meet a year later to read the love letters together, Charlie and Jordan go their separate ways. Written by Marx-Michael

What did they do to such a beautiful movie?
31 January 2010 | by haskinsterSee all my reviews

Oh my gosh, I am so disappointed! I absolutely loved the original Korean "My Sassy Girl"! And it absolutely shocks me that it was made by the same person who made "Love Me If You Dare", which was also a great movie! This movie has just completely butchered everything I loved about the original. First of all, in the original, the main female character is a bit sassy and crazy, but she is most definitely not psychotic and out of touch with reality! I don't know what they did to such a lovable character! Throughout the whole American version of this movie, I kept wondering what attracts Charlie to Jordan. I was on his friend's side the whole time.

I tried so hard to sit through the movie, but eventually found it impossible. It just made me sick that such an awful remake could be made. It was worse than watching the movie version of my favorite book. Why does Hollywood have to ruin all that is good? I realize that it is difficult to adjust Korean culture in order to fit American culture, and make the story line work, but this just completely failed on every level. The characters were very unlikeable, from the bland and boring Charlie to the Jordan that belongs in a padded room. They just basically took the Korean characters and turned them into awful stereotypes. News to Hollywood: a character doesn't have to be a stereotype for us to relate to them!
