my little bride

The best part of "My Little Bride" is watching the dysfunctional newlyweds settle into married life. dun worry, you can safely lean back and enjoy this, without fear of being called a pervert, b'coz the film never hides the fact that it has no intention of implying anything even remotely naughty between the two leads.

They're simply adorable! They have food fights. They use rock, paper and scissors to determine who's going to do the dishes. They tease one another like a couple of teenagers flirting. In fact, if they weren't married you'd forgiven for suspecting that they have the hots for each other. Which of course makes the whole set-up extra ironic.

Between her ordering him around like they've been married for 20 years, and him teasing her about the physical aspects of their relationship, while trying to persuade her to at least let him sleep next to her, we get the sense they have real feelings for each other. If they hadn't been rushed into marriage they might have had a chance to figure that out for themselves, somewhere down the line. This is the part of the film that makes it a success. If it wasn't for the fact that we could see their potential as a couple, it would have been an awkward film. Instead this becomes a story about finding the love that was always there, despite all the obstacles the world puts in their path.

It's sweet, it's cuddly, and it's got all those signature scenes we've come to expect from Korean comedies. There's the one where the guy has to carry the girl home on his back, the one where they sing karaoke, the one where something extraordinary happens, but it turns out to be a dream. I know these scenes, or variations of them, have been done a million times before, but rarely do they work as well as here. It's a dark a cruel world out there.

Death and disaster can strike at any moment. You work too hard and they don't pay you enough. Whatever your particular beef with the world is, I can assure you that it'll seem a little less serious after watching this film. Wahhaaa..
