This is a movie about a drunk, violent Korean girl who manages to fall in love with a sissy boy. Oh yeah, there's alot of vomiting, too.
No really, it's a light romantic comedy with some great comedic bits, a penchance for a bit too much voiceover and exposition, and a nicely wrapped up (if predictable) ending. "The Girl" reminds me of more than one ex-girlfriend (the sassy, slap-happy part -- not the drunk, vomitous part). Then again, the male lead is so amazingly prissy at the beginning half of the movie that I could understand why a girl would want to slap him so prodigiously.
Sure, the formula is pretty predictable (see Girl Next Door, Almost Famous, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Chasing Amy), but it still works.
Still need to watch Taxi 2 and Sex is Zero. Thanks Mark!
