  • Easily could have been an irritating mess, but Cho balances many genres to create an unusual, hilarious, and memorable movie for the men and women folk...

  • There are scenes in [it] that would technically make it a gross-out comedy, but they're delivered with enough panache so that somewhat seedy label doesn't seem applicable.

    humorous and engaging tale; nice balance between story and action; well fleshed-out characters..this movie entertains, as does the two that came out afterwards. Enjoyable watch..

    <b>My Wife is a Gangster</b> is unique blend of different genres: action, comedy, and drama. It's main focus is on comedy, so don't see this movie thinking it is wall to wall action. It does have a couple of great fight scenes - one in the rain, one in a field of tall grass, and one in the rival gang's hideout. The action choreography and camera work is done superbly, very stylish. The movie has some great comedy and also has some drama thrown in, which is done to great effect. Overall, this movie works and is unique in it's own right.

    Great combination of action, drama and comedy. This falls into the category of movies you wish there were more of.
