Featured reviews for

Scandal Makers aka Speedy Scandal
Lunapark6, by RamenLover - 7.5/10 source: http://lunapark6.com/scandal-makers.html
«After watching “Scandal Makers” it’s easy to understand why the film became such a huge hit in Korea. The comedic elements found in the first half of the film works well & the dramatic moments found in the second half doesn’t feel unnaturally forced.»
Variety, by DEREK ELLEY source: http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117940411.html?categoryid=31&cs=1
«Script avoids pratfall comedy and one-liners, settling instead for character-based humor maintained by the terrific chemistry of the three leads. Cha replaces his goofy earlier style with a kind of resigned, occasionally rebellious fatalism; deadpan Park is excellent as the spunky young mom.»
Twitch, by James Marsh source: http://twitchfilm.net/site/view/scandal-makers-review/
«SCANDAL MAKERS largely ignores the contrivances of its own plot to spend more time with the three interesting and amusing lead characters. The film never attempts to lecture on the apparently epidemic teen pregnancy problem within Hyeon-soo’s family and refreshingly uses infant somnabulism almost exclusively for laughs.»
The Best at What They Do source: http://asianfilmreviews.wordpress.com/2009/06/20/speed-scandal-2008/
«But beyond simply focusing on the characters, Speed Scandal does what the best films do – it is infused with culture (as in the above example). ... The film doesn’t pander to what usually defines a traditional family, and instead stresses generational ties in spite of the storied unconventional family and its disfunctionality. »
