"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).

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.

In this Korean-American crossover film, we see the aspects of cultural asymmetry expressed by not so subtle discrimination based only upon the opinions of others. It's the old standby: "WHAT WILL people say?". This film pushes the envelope a bit, holding back until the last 10 minutes or so, when some additional information is detailed, by one of the family members. The comic moments weren't particularly alarming, but there was a great deal of screaming, sighing, hand-wringing and pseudo tears, all part of the entire film. It seemed some woman or man-maybe several at one time, were pushing the panic button repeatedly, to emphasize their general hysteria. Not exactly laugh out loud stuff, but not stilted or boring. Actually, once I got past the initial tension-filled moments, I really enjoyed this film's premise and segues. Good stuff. The soundtrack is killer, music I had never before paid any attention to, but I found the toes tapping and the fingers drumming in synch to the tunes.
One issue alone drops this otherwise charming film from 4 stars to 3. That was the sound track of the actors voices, when the most meaning needed to be crystal clear: their mouths were moving with supposed dialogue, but the overall quality sounded to me as if there was just a tiny glitch in the post production taping and voicework. Rather like they were speaking through some sort of filtered sound processes with dubbing. It wasn't distracting, but it sounded strange enough that to me, it became tedious. IF this was dubbed in post, it's fine, but I did notice that one odd quality.

Otherwise, a delightful, charming and quite enjoyable cross over from an unexpected source. I totally recommend this film. No profanity, no F bombs, just good clean fun. A rarity in any film, these days.

The usual cliches of this genre and very forgettable. Seriously forgettable as in I had to watch a preview to remember even watching this film. The only reason I didn't turn this film off in the first 5 minutes or less was that I became preoccupied doing things around the house and frankly forgot about it. I did give it a quick run through with the fast forward and stop button and found it very painful to watch. I am not a fan of the wacky zany genre and you really have to be to get even a sliver of enjoyment out of this 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.
