Product Description

Straight-laced Charlie Bellow (Jesse Bradford) has a perfectly predictable life. Great grades, great future, no risks. That is, until he meets Jordan Roark (Elisha Cuthbert), a compulsive girl who lives every moment on the edge. As Jordan teaches Charlie to loosen up and let go, Charlie finds himself falling helplessly in love even as his life spins out of control. But Jordan's carefree attitude masks a painful secret, and when it threatens to tear them apart, Charlie will have to show her that once destiny guides you to the one you want, it's up to you to hold on.

Amazon.com

Loosely based on the 2001 Korean romantic comedy of the same name, My Sassy Girl follows a young couple that was brought together by unusual circumstances. Charlie (Jesse Bradford, Flags of Our Fathers) finds Jordan (Elisha Cuthbert, 24) drunk and passed out in a subway station. Worried that she'll be harmed, he makes sure she gets home safely. The two have nothing in common. He has a life plan and a cautious approach; she lives moment to moment and literally throws caution to the wind. Like The Lake House--a remake of the Korean movie Siworae--the plot of My Sassy Girl has been changed enough that it's its own film. While not nearly as charming as the film on which it's based, it has its winning moments--especially in the final third of the film when it makes sense why this unlikely pair should be together. As Jordan notes, "We have to stay alive, because we have to see how the story ends." Bradford and Cuthbert lend charm and likability to their roles. While the plot often asks us to believe in them when they're placed in situations that are completely unbelievable, the actors make us root for them. There is a surprise tear-jerking ending that is highly contrived. Still, you may want to have a tissue or two on hand. --Jae-Ha Kim

I've seen the original twice. As a native Korean, I loved the original movie. It's a laugh-out-loud movie but also a heart-warming romantic comedy, excellently done by the two main actors. A definite keeper.

I was very curious to find out that they've done an American remake of the film. As the original movie had a very distinct Korean culture, I was excited to see how they've turned it into an American film. I expected to see much change in the plot but surprisingly there were many familiar scenes. The scene on the subway and the games that the girl plays were all in the American version. Even the rose scene which was a significant part in the original movie was kept in tact. Unlike other reviewers, I was actually disappointed that they kept so many of the original movie. I'm grateful that the film makers showed respect to the original movie but they forget that the original movie was geared towards a Korean audience which is why the craziness of a cute girl works. In many Korean films, it is quite common to see a girl's charm manifested in her obnoxious behaviour and such. But I wasn't convinced of it in the American version. The girl just was really annoying and I was annoyed with the guy for taking such crap from a crazy girl.

I think the movie should've been more Americanized. It has a such a sweet story to it but the film makers' over sensitivity to the original movie was, in my opinion, a hindrance to recreating this film. Lakehouse is another movie that was adapted from a very well known Korean film. They kept the spirit of the original but changed quite a lot of the plot and even changed the characters a little bit, to suit an American audience and look how well that turned out.

When a film is being remade, although there should be some homage to the original, the remade movie should still be able to stand on its own. As for this film, if I hadn't seen the original movie, I would've given this film less than three stars.

I watched the original Korean version at least 20 times. It was with a little exaggeration in the middle, but deep and touching.

The remake, I can't even bear to watch it the first time. It feels like it has a lot of "acting" as if they want to "act like it is so". It is shallow and pretentious.

Try the original Korean version instead.

Format: DVD
Elisha Cuthbert stars as Jordan Roark and Jesse Bradford as Charlie Bellows, two apparently mismatched New Yorkers who randomly meet on a subway platform.

The packaging and parts of the movie stylistically say "romantic comedy." And there are funny parts, but not based on the now common gross gags or sexual double entendre. But the humor is not the core of the movie. Charlie Bellows is a typical romantic comedy straight man, so it's easy to see where viewers might be misled. Jordan Roark is not the typical inhabitant of a romantic comedy. In fact she's the mystery. What makes her so volatile and emotionally dangerous but compelling?

The movie was deeper than I expected with a real reward at the end. I couldn't take my eyes off of Elisha Cuthbert. The story builds somewhat slowly but the nuance is there in Elisha's characterization to explain everything in retrospect. I found her compelling. There was no mystery why Jesse's Charlie Bellows fell in love, despite the Elisha's manic behavior as Jordan.

It wasn't the romantic comedy I expected, but it was a rewarding, surprising and oddly compelling drama by the end. I've rewatched it several times and found additional subtlety, emotion and meaning each time. My Sassy Girl was much better than anticipated, and perhaps expectations play a role.

Those viewers that saw the original Korean version have vastly different expectations and apparently wanted the same movie in English, and didn't get it. Those that want and need a light romantic comedy would also be disappointed. If you're willing to ride along and let the movie develop on its own merits, there's more meaning and drama than meets the eye in the first half of the film.

Recommended. My Sassy Girl

I watched the original South Korean My Sassy Girl: Director's Cut a couple of weeks before this sad American remake and it blew me away; so why you might ask would I watch this very poorly-reviewed retread? Ehh, it's just one of the things I do, I guess. There's actually an Indian remake also, and a Chinese sequel - the Korean film was a huge success across Asia - but if they're no better than this, I won't be making an effort to track them down (well, not MUCH effort). Still, I'd have to guess that the mixture of melodrama and broad comedy that the original film captures so brilliantly is not as foreign to other Asian filmmakers as it obviously was to American director Yann Samuel and screenwriter Victor Levin.

Canadian actress Elisha Cuthbert plays the "sassy" (read: obnoxious, rude, nearly psychopathic in this film) girl, given a name in this version ("Jordan"), and Jesse Bradford plays her hapless savior/suitor Charlie. It's pretty much a scene-for-scene remake of the original, but transplanted entirely to Manhattan and cut by about 40 minutes, which removes any possibility of the subtleties of the Korean film, particularly in class and gender issues; here we get a much more simplistic contrast between uber-rich girl and struggling from-the-sticks guy. The fantasy sequences here just seem like throwaways, because Jordan just isn't as well developed as Gianna Jun's character was in the earlier film, and because there is little that is endearing about her until near the end.
