Audience Reviews for My Girlfriend Is an Agent
Mar 02, 2013This film, surprisingly for a South Korean romantic comedy, has very little to no melodrama whatsoever. It does have some serious moments but the film is concerned with being a silly comedy first and foremost. And good for them, even if the plot is ridiculous and absurd, but it's good to see a film stick to what they do best and not finding a way to force some drama in where it's not needed. I did think the film was pretty funny from beginning to end, funny in a low-brow manner rather than being clever. The comedy, and the way the film's "story" is presented, came across as a TV show. And, ironically enough, just late last month a remake TV series came out in Korea. The humor is very silly and light, so it makes it very easy to digest for a TV audience. I have no idea if the show is still comedic or if it's more of a drama but, again, the story felt more suited to a series. If there is a problem with the film is that the twist in the film is completely ridiculous and idiotic. I'm gonna spoil it now because I don't really care. The film followed these two Russian men who were trying buy this virus from this doctor. Then, in one scene, one of the men took off his "face" to reveal that a woman had actually been one of the Russian men trying to buy this virus. It was literally one of the dumbest twists I've ever seen in a movie, it was really absurd. The woman also shrunk several inches in the reveal. I realize this is a "spy" movie, but at least try to do something that makes sense in the context of the film. This twist didn't make one lick of sense and they tried to justify it by having this woman, who was only seen for 15 seconds jogging at the beginning of the film, be the wife of one of the men that Soo-Ji arrested. If the point was to have the character be a woman, then just have her be a woman from the beginning, instead of passing her off as a "man" only to have a, really shitty, twist on your hands. And it's not like it was clear that this was someone wearing a mask, they actually CAST a man to play this role for most of the film, only to have a reveal. They didn't force any drama in here but they did force in a retarded twist. If there's anything that keeps this film from getting a higher rating, it's that stupid fucking twist. Because, while the movie wasn't hilarious and, as mentioned, had some low-brow humor, it was still fun. The cast is solid, some of the jokes work, and there's no melodrama. But that twist, that twist kept this from being a good film. If you enjoy light-hearted, easy to digest South Korean romantic comedies then I'd say this would be one of the best, even if I can just say it's average at best.Jesse O Super Reviewer
Dec 10, 2009<b>My Girlfriend is an Agent</b> seemed more aligned to <b>True Lies</b> rather than <b>Mr. & Mrs. Smith</b>, by virtue of the extreme lengths taken in concealing one's true occupation from one's loved one, and that they don't quite get at each other's throats, at least not with intentionally deadly force anyway. <i>Kim Ha-Neul</i> and <i>Kang Ji-Hwan</i> share some comfortable chemistry whether they're up against each other, or rekindling their feelings. Their television star status should ensure that fans everywhere would hit the cinemas to support their stars in their big screen outing. While <i>Kim Ha-Neul</i> probably had it easier ramping up the sexiness of her role, <i>Kang Ji-Hwan</i> is no pushover with his endearing, bumbling agent that personally I thought was the more interesting of the two. The English title may sound tacky, but don't let that stop you from enjoying this lightweight, romantic comedy with action sequences that are a throwback similar to what Hong Kong films in the 80s have done.Steven V Super Reviewer
