Comedy , Romance Actors: Most students goof off: He likes Eun-hyo; even though his earnest and simple side appeals to her, his juvenile excesses make him irrelevant when Sung-ok, a good-looking rich kid, charms Eun-hyo.
They begin an affair, leaving Eun-shik on the sidelines. The national competition approaches and complications arise. Film Review Sex is Zero centers about the development of an awkward college student and his unrequited love for a beautiful girl out of his league, successively delivering the usual dose of masturbation jokes and penis cracks along the way. On the surface, it's a debauched concoction of raunch and libido, blending together to give frat boys another way to find hilarity in promiscuity.
However, at the same time, it cleverly meshes smut and sincerity to form a surprisingly charismatic outcome. A sex comedy —with depth, at that. Something that American Pie and other films in it's genre lacks.
While the film explores the sexual exploits of the surrounding characters, it also digs into the plausible outcomes of the loose lifestyles they exude.
There are times where it drops it's crude humor long enough to give the film a weighty, sedate factor as well— making the overall outcome a memorably genuine movie, worthwhile for horny frat boys and curious onlookers alike. I really enjoyed this movie, especially after being drenched in repetitive Hollywood humour that after a while is just nauseating. Some people may complain about the drama twists, but I thought that was the best part of it, I for one am sick of sterile happy endings, I have seen so many, my brain is almost washed with the idea of everything ending just right after every adventure.
The humour in it is very original, very diverse and it made me laugh harder than anything I watched before. It's just a breath of fresh air and it was great. At times it may be a little exaggerated, but I don't remember a single moment where it passed the border of reality and plausibility. Plus there are many small moments that you might miss on a first seeing that you will only pick up the second time round and that alone warrants more than one viewing.
The story isn't very complicated, although it's not blend either. It's just right with the theme of the movie, and that is about the mist… Korean movies found their marks with comedy, lavishness, and bit of romance or sexploitation.
This is one of the earlier movies of this type that has good plot, and many funny moments. The movie is about a Korean cheer leading competition, with romance that goes along the way. Many good looking athletic women and men show their skills on screen.
There aren't any vulgarness to the movie although there are many sexual innuendos. Korean movies have come a long ways, and the quality of actors have really gone up.
The story isn't seamlessly smooth, but this problem goes away with Sex is Zero 2. The movie was pretty experimental when it came out, so that's OK. I'm all for these cleverly done K movies, and I hope they'd continue making good movies like this one.
