Editorial Reviews

Sex Is Zero is to South Korea what Porky's, American Pie, and Fast Times at Ridgemont High are to the United States. The Korean film has all the classic elements of a sex comedy: gratuitous breast shots, unusual use of bodily fluids, and a plot that's secondary to the physical comedic skills of the actors.

Eun-Sik (Chang Jung Lim) is a 28-year-old sad sack of a college student. Though he s served in the military and is a skilled martial artist, he's insecure and socially inept. He accidentally wolfs down a sandwich made from rat poison and fried, um, sticky fluids (courtesy of his bizarre roommates). He ingests a drugged beverage intended to make women frisky. And when part of his dinner lands on a pin-up poster, what's a guy to do but lick it off?

The highest-grossing comedy in South Korea, Sex Is Zero is slowed down with some drama that doesn't ring true. When the girl of his dreams suffers from a complicated abortion (after an affair with the selfish campus playboy), Eun-Sik matures into a caregiver a role that is out of context for him in this movie. -Jae-Ha Kim

Saw this film few years ago.. Just like the title, this is pretty much the Korean version of "american pie" except it's 5 times funnier. Hopefully nothing will be cut out of the US release. Even All my Non-Korean friends still ask me to this day to let them borrow this movie again. Highly recommend this movie

Likeable, Korean sex comedy (with some serious moments). Sophomoric humor, good young, attractive cast (most moving on to bigger and better roles), lots of sexy scenes. Still maintains Korean flavor (good or bad). DVD has English subtitled extras. Spawned a sequel.

Hilarious Korean sex comedy that's often compared to American Pie, Porky's, and other films of that ilk in its approach to sex, except that this one ventures into the aftermath and potential consequences.

My main gripe with this DVD is that while the Amazon description says that the disc is widescreen, it's actually presented in letterbox format (with black bars). That might not be an issue for most people, but it's a pain for those of us with widescreen TVs ... especially considering that all releases of this film outside the US are anamorphic widescreen. I'm also disappointed in the choice of "Mr. Skin" to do the audio commentary, as he seems more interested in ogling the actresses, putting down the male characters, and discussing other films than saying anything worthwhile about the film at hand. Fortunately, Matt Kennedy of Panik House chimes in occasionally on the commentary with cultural notes on Korea and Asian cinema. On a positive note, the included special features are impressive, and Panik House was kind enough to include a free Sex Is Zero sticker(!)

So overall, great film for those who enjoy raunchy sex comedies and don't mind a little dose of pathos. Not so great disc for owners of widescreen TVs or fans of enlightening commentary tracks.

This is a story of four nerdy guys wanting to score, being conned into joining the college gymnastics team. There is also an older guy involved. The film is a series of college antics gone bad, typically centering on one guy going to the hospital. For some reason they couldn't leave a decent comedy alone and they inject a tragedy into the script with the end being contrasting scenes of comedy and tragedy, putting a wet blanket on everything. It's all fun and games until...

Guide: F-Bomb, sex, nudity.

I watched Sex is Zero again last night and remember how good it was,

with all the awful comedies coming out of Hollywood right now, this is

a breath of fresh air. I remember the first thing I heard from this

movie was that it was the Korea's American Pie, but for my taste Sex

is Zero is much better. You get all gags a sex comedy should have plus

more. If you are a fan of Asian Cinema you know they like to throw

dramatic twists even in comedies and Sex is Zero is not the exception.

For example, let's say the do an Action comedy in Hong Kong like Rush

Hour, near the end one of the 2 main characters is going to die, that

throws a punch to the viewer out of nowhere, some people hate that and

others like me love it, enough of Hollywood endings. Not that I'm

saying anybody dies in this movie, this one is a Sex Comedy, not and

Action movie.

Ha Ji Won plays the lead female character, she is a sweetheart, before

watching this I saw her in a Horror movie called Nightmare, she is my

favorite Korean actress, last movie I saw her in is Duelist, you

should look for that movie too, is one of the best pieces of

cinematography I've ever seen.

Im Chang Jung plays the lead male character and he does a great job,

the guy is really funny and also shows he can act when he has to.

Maybe "Sex Is Zero" is a sarcastic way of saying "Sex means nothing." However, I don't recall anywhere in which the title is explained. If you liked "Porky's" or "Revenge of the Nerds," then you might like this film.
I think we in the West have this image of the East as being sexually conservative, excluding the kama sutra, sex tourism, etc. However, this is filled with the horniness that you could find in American sex comedies. It has a gross-out humor aspect too. Vomit, mastering one's domain, and all that type of stuff comes up here.
Some say the West is individual-oriented while the East is group-oriented. While Western characters are often seen with friends, there sure was a way the the characters here seemed glued into groups. Although the main characters were four guys and four girls, the eight people almost acted like four reincarnations of each other.
Like most sex comedies, there is far more female nudity than male, as opposed to having equal amounts of naughty bits.
Some of the humor I didn't get. For example, one guy was trying to make a sick woman laughed and he did something that I thought would suffocate him. There's a lot of eating or drinking things that one shouldn't do; I wonder if that's a culture-specific laughfest.
I also think all the Western guys that just love, love, love them some naked East Asian chicks will enjoy this. I don't recall "The Joy Luck Club" showing any nudity, but this film does.
