Movie Info

A conservative-minded Midwesterner finds his well-mapped-out life taking an unexpected detour when he falls for a reckless girl with a rash wanton wild streak in director Yann Samuell's stateside adaptation of the 2001 South Korean hit. Jesse Bradford stars as the hapless young man who can't help but falling in love with the titular mischief maker (played by Elisha Cuthbert) despite her brazen ways. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

...quickly establishes itself as an uncommonly interminable romantic comedy...

October 24, 2008 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

there is an audience for this movie, and that includes people who love an unconventional romance and who aren't bothered by a bit of contrived storytelling

It's puzzling to me why a quality romantic comedy/drama such as this gets sent to DVD purgatory

I waited a long time to see this movie. Now I wish I hadn't watched it at all. I love a good quirky rom-com. This is NOT a quirky rom-com. It is just plain dumb.

It was very good but not my absolute favorite movie.

The original My Sassy Girl is one of my all time favourite movies. The main problem with this remake is that it just doesn't translate well as a story. While the Korean original Sassy Girl is funny and over the top, this one played by Elisha Cuthbert is just obnoxious and a bit rude. I have no real gripe with Elisha as an actress, I have seen her in things before and found her okay, but My Sassy Girl, she is not. Quite honestly I wish they would just overdub the original films if people are too stupid or lazy to read the subtitles. Occasionally there is a good remake of a film, but they are far and few between, and this definitely isn't one of them. I guess it is okay just as a rental, but it's not written very well and is below average even for that. They seem to have really dumbed this one down. It's a shame as it may put people off seeing the original which really was very well done.
