Great movie on top of basic plot and some minor technical errors.
9 September 2010 | by SeanDNguyenSee all my reviews

I just went to the premiere of this movie last night at the Saigon Performing Arts Center with the red carpet stars. I went in thinking that this would be some awful movie about love, maybe with a little bit of comedy.

I was completely wrong.

The movie was hilarious, I did not expect the writing to be this funny. I mean, given, this is a classic, "boy meets girl" movie, and the guy would do anything for the girl. But with that basic plot element set aside, it takes a different approach to the classic.

The technical aspects were a bit odd, rather than showing a 35mm film, they played the entire movie off of a mac and had some technical problems, but those were no big deal. Though some of the lip syncing was off, it was, from what I saw, hardly noticeable. Some of the cuts from the band to the end of the show were really rough, and easily noticeable. Seeming to look like they rushed the cut.

Though this movie *is* in Vietnamese, it has English subtitles. Though some of the language is a little bit off, (such as saying "kinda" and the typo of 3years rather than 3 years) even reading the subtitles gives you clear passage to the humor. Though many people would think that the humor would be "lost in translation," for the most part, this doesn't really happen.

Aside from the technical aspects, I recommend that you see this movie if you're looking for a great foreign film with lots of comedy.

Be sure to check this movie when it comes out on September 10th!
