News & Interviews for Wedding Palace

Critic Reviews for Wedding Palace

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (7)

Kang's Na Young and Tee's Jason have a winning rapport when the script isn't pushing them into contrived shtick.

Washington Post
Top Critic

The cross-cultural rom com about a Korean American's search for true love is marred by serious overacting, broad characterization, flat comedic skits. It tries too hard, like a comic who's the one laughing hardest at his jokes.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Top Critic

Loud, frenetic action drowns out the charms of Christine Yoo's debut film.

Variety
Top Critic

Yoo finds room for all of the obligatory bad first dates and fantasy sequences, montages and misunderstandings, a wisecracking best friend and overbearing parents. It doesn't appear that she means any of this ironically, or as parody.

Top Critic

While the story is a bit weak, the film does a good job of contrasting Korean-Americans who steadfastly adhere to the traditions of their homeland with South Koreans who have renounced old customs.

New York Times
Top Critic

The genre elements of the romantic comedy "Wedding Palace" attempt a transpacific transit, but get lost in translation.
