Cast & Credits
This is a fun popcorn movie. It's a fun romp to watch when you want something not too heavy. It's kind of a buddy-flick for girls lol. The story, was fine. Notice I didn't say believable, lol they never are, but it kept moving along nicely and at a decent pace. It never takes itself to serious, even during the more "dramatic" scenes. It had a couple of little wrenches thrown in, but your not going to get to the end and be like - "Wow he WAS Keyser Söze!" Then again I don't mind a formulaic plot as long as they do it well.
Kim Sun Ah does a great job as the lead. Her comedic timing is great, and her acting was well done. The other 3 female leads did a nice job of supporting her. I think it was great that they represented every stage of a woman's life, the younger woman, the middle aged woman, and the older woman.
Do I think you should watch it? Yes. Especially if your a fan of Kim Sun Ah like I am. It might even make you ponder the question, would YOU take the gold in front of you? And if so, for what reasons?
(please note- I wanted to leave re-watch blank, as I really don't EVER re-watch, so I feel I really shouldn't answer it)
If you want to watch something light, funny and has a bit of action, check the movie out.
