Audience Reviews for Sex is Zero 2
Another South Korean romantic comedy that follows the same old and tired formula. It's all fun and games until the movie takes it upon itself to add some melodramatic back-stories, that aren't ever alluded to other than just the one time. Somehow when they reveal why Kyeong-ah is the way she is, it simply isn't satisfying because it's clearly trying to manipulate your feelings. It doesn't work, if you were wondering. And the thing is, for the first hour and 15 minutes the movies was a perfectly watchable as a sex comedy with a large cast of characters. That's what the movie did best and they threw that away in the last 35 minutes to force some shitty drama in a movie that simply didn't need it. The characters didn't need to be crying for extended periods of time while sad music played in the background. That's not effective storytelling to me. It, again, simply says that you're trying to manipulate people's emotions. That's always been a problem in a lot of South Korean movies, but it's more apparent in the romantic comedies. I wish somebody would explain to me how this melodramatic back-story to Kyeong-ah, actually benefited the film in a positive manner. I just hate to see movies that are actually decent enough, throw all that away to add some terrible drama, as this movie did. I wouldn't say that the comedy in the film was all that high-brow either. It's a sex comedy, you know what to expect. A lot of gross-out humor. And realistically I'm not even sure what the purpose of the comedy was. It didn't have any relevance to the overall story. So I'm hard-pressed to find what the actual purpose of it was, other than to set you up for disappointment when they throw the shitty drama at you. The women are definitely the highlight of the film. Well it's really just the one woman, who in some parts reminded me of a female Russell Brand, who steals the show. But the cast, during the comedy section of the film, seemed to be having a lot of fun. And that's something that always benefits comedies like this, at least in my view. But of course, as mentioned, it's not like the comedy knocks them dead either. But it was fine for the most part. Overall, I didn't really like this movie at all, the drama just destroyed the interest I had in the movie. I'd say watch this movie's first 80 or so minutes and the quickly shut it off. The remaining 35 minutes of the film suck.
The first one was better but this movie was a good laugh too... Too much drama, yet the story didn't match the title... Just looks like made to follow the success of the first movie.. But overall, pretty good laugh..
