Cast & Credits
Story: It's a bit goofy, and light on actual plot, but for a movie about a programmer who likes to steal on the side, it's perfect. The cast is kept to a minimum so you can concentrate on the real story of bringing a family together through adversity.
Cast/Acting: There are 2 main actors, then the wife and kids. That's really it. However, the comedic acting is spot on. So Ji Sub, adorable as always, just cracked me up in ever scene. I've only watched him in serious roles until Master's Sun so I was surprised at how good he was in comedy. If I had watched this movie prior, I wouldn't have been.
Music: Not really much music in the movie, but what is there always fit the mood of the scene perfectly. No OST, obviously, but was done well.
Rewatch Value: This movie is so "Keystone Cops" funny that, yes, I would watch it again definitely. The watching value isn't in a great story, gripping drama, or mystery... it's a slapstick funny movie and those are always great for rewatching on a rainy day.
Summary: Without giving out spoilers, this is the perfect movie for when you're a tad burned on dramas. It's light, quick, funny, no romance (really) to worry about, it's just about the two main actors going man to man. There is a moral in the story, and it actually ended great. You won't have wasted 100 minutes of your life by watching.
