Funny, cute, and easy to love romantic comedy with great characters that reminded me of my relatives.

They even arrange an utter disaster of a blind date for him while he is on a business trip to Korea, where he meets the woman of his dreams.

I saw this movie at the theater and purchase this DVD for a gift but the quality was so poor I decide to keep it.

The trailer doesn't lie - the movie is as humorous as it seems in the trailer.

I was a little leary about the idea of the family freaking out because the bride is not what they expected her to look like - but the script doesn't justify what some may see as predjudice. A few scences are slow. But overall, it is an original storyline with some smiles, some chuckles and some laugh out loud moments.

The film is NR but would likely be PG or PG-13 if it were rated. There is one scene in the animation and another scene at the wedding (both occur in the first 10 minutes) that parents may not find suitable for children because of the crude/suggestive humor in these two scenes.

"Wedding Palace" (2013 release; 98 min.) brings the story of Jason, a Korean-American living in California with his extended family, including parents and uncles and aunts who are all 1st generation immigrants from (South) Korea. As the movie opens, we get to know Jason and the background behind a family curse that goes all the way back to the 1700s in Korea. As it turns out, Jason simply MUST marry by age 30, or he'll die. When Jason is stood up by his bride-to-be Jinnie on their wedding day (in a scene strongly reminiscent of "The Graduate"), he must renew his search for a suitable bride, with an assist from his parents. Then one day Jason travels to Seoul on a work project, and he gets to know Na Young, a beautiful and funny co-worker. Separately we see how Jinnie realizes her mistake and she wants Jason back. At this point we are about 35 min. into the movie, but to tell you more would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: first and foremost, this is one whacky and zany rom-com, and I mean that as a compliment. The pace of the movie, in particular the first 20 min. or so, is at breakneck pace where you barely get time to absorb what is going before the film shifts to the next scene. Second, the movie contains a number of observations on the Korean-American community that are obvious without ever being mean or rude. Check out the overbearing parents (I love the "Pick Your Bride Show" scene), but also the multiple references to karaoke, materialism, etc. I'm sure that there are many others that likely went over my head (I am not Korean-American).

Loved the camera work, enjoyed the story line. Wonderful to watch and the story draws you in. Well written! You can watch it alone or with a room full of friends and laugh your ass off together! Just watch and see for yourself.

The actors are spectacularly funny. The difficult situations in finding and admitting that you love a person that my not be viewed as "normal" by "society" are beautifully portrayed in this jewel of a movie.

Jason (Brian Tee) is nice, befuddled sort of ad executive who has just been jilted at the altar by his bride to be (via an arranged marriage) - and yet that's not the worst of his problems. Due to a family curse, Jason has to be married by the age of thirty or else he will die, and with the thwarted wedding his over-anxious family (his parents, especially) are freaking out over the possibility of losing their son. When a business trip to Korea finds Jason meeting and having one date with a girl he met at work, after returning home the two end up growing closer and more in love, via phone and internet, to the point where Brian proposes and she agrees to relocate to Los Angeles for the wedding. But a very surprising twist may throw the entire marriage - and Jason's life - into turmoil, in a funny, sweet and endearing romantic comedy exploring culture and family ... and firmly anchored by the charm of its male lead in Tee (along with a brilliant cast), who proves he can handle romantic comedy as deftly as the more dramatic - even sinister - characters he normally plays.

Cute movie about love. Mostly English speaking with some English subtitles. Korean cultural movie about getting married and finding true love.

Total Chick Flick. The kind I like when I need to get away from worrying about global warming and the drowning polar bears, and Men.

Silly, bordering on the ridiculous, Korean, Asian, PG for a few words, feel-good ending, peppy, not so off-the-mark hyperbolic humor for how many (immigrant AND Other) families are thinking... and you don't have to worry about what's going to happen to the characters!

I normally give Five Stars to anything I like and One to that I think shouldn't be made to begin with; Chick Flicks are best when there a Four Stars; otherwise, it means you have to THINK! And that's NOT why we watch Chick Flicks!

P.S. Yes, I do subscribe to National Geographic. In case you are worried.

Enjoyed the story. I am a very very short person....technically not a midget because I'm over 4'8" tall and a tad under 4'10", and I'm not a dwarf (my body is normally proportioned....so I identified with the tiny woman's role. I'm Asian (Filipino), so I was in sympathy with the cultural quirks at play in the plot. I'm so glad there are movies being made of American Asians in America. It's about time. Enjoyed Margaret Cho as the shaman. Hope to see her in more movies.
