YesAsia Editorial Description

Just when Korean audiences thought that they were out, the crafty filmmakers behind 2002's sleeper box office smash Marrying the Mafia are pulling them back in for more! This time around, it looks like there's even more matrimonial mobster antics in store for viewers with this zany, fun-filled 2005 sequel! From filmmaker Jeong Heung Su, who last helmed the 2004 horror tale The Doll Master, comes this laugh-a-minute follow-up that looks to top the comic success of its predecessor!

Actor Shin Hyun Jun, who previously appeared in such films as Face and Hi, Dharma 2 takes on the lead role in Marrying the Mafia 2, portraying one of three sons in a notorious mob family. It seems that at every turn, he's finding himself being pressured by his mother to find a nice girl and settle down. And as luck would have it, he ends up snagging the perfect girl (played by Kim Won Hee from 2002's Oollala Sisters). Believing he's found "The One", it looks like he's more than ready to walk down the aisle with his newfound love. But what will happen when his mafia family discovers that his wife-to-be is actually a chief prosecutor who just so happens to enjoy putting gangsters behind bars? Will love prevail or will someone end up sleeping with the fishes?

Featuring supporting appearances from Kim Su Mi (from Bold Family and Mapado), Tak Jae Hun (Everybody Has Secrets and Romantic Comedy), Lim Hyeong Jun (Taegukgi and The Doll Master) Kong Hyeong Jin (Wet Dreams and Peppermint Candy), and Shin Yi (My Boyfriend is Type B and Sex is Zero), Marrying the Mafia 2 looks to be one sequel that's just as entertaining as the original.

Professional Review of "Marrying The Mafia II : Enemy In Law (Give-Away Version)"

January 7, 2006

This professional review refers to Marrying the Mafia 2 : Enemy in Law (DVD) (Korea Version)
Jeong Young Ki, director of the Asian horror flick The Doll Master, tries his hand at comedy with Marrying The Mafia 2: Enemy in Law, the hit 2005 sequel that was so popular it actually surpassed the impressive box office receipts of the 2002 film that spawned it. This wacky gangster comedy shifts its focus to a new mob family and centers on the marital situation of the clan's number one son, Jang In Jae, played by actor Shin Hyun Jun, last seen in High Dharma 2 and Face. It seems that In Jae's mobster mother (Kim Soo Mi) takes an active role in her three sons' lives. Whether it's faking her own kidnapping to time their rescue attempts or simply trying to marry off In Jae before he becomes an old bachelor, clearly, Mama Jang wants to see her sons do well.

However, the blind dates aren't working out for In Jae, as no woman seems to compare to Jin Sook, his beloved high school sweetheart. As luck would have it, after yet another unfulfilling blind date, In Jae catches a glimpse of Kim Jin Kyung (Kim Won Hee), an attractive young woman who just so happens to be the spitting image of the dearly departed Jin Sook But despite their similarities, Jin Kyung isn't In Jae's girlfriend come back to life, but is instead a chief prosecutor! In Jae spies her just prior to her participation in a sting operation to take down a nefarious gangster, a man whose organization just so happens to be a rival of the Jang family. But when Jin Kyung ends up drugged and defenseless, it's lucky for her that In Jae is in the vicinity to step in and save the day. With Jin Kyung knocked out cold, In Jae has little option but to take her home until she awakens, a decision which, of course, results in the expected Three's Company-esque misunderstandings before a real romance between the two can properly develop.

Strangely enough, from this point forward, the film becomes increasingly bipolar in terms of tone. In one respect, it becomes a wacky "anything goes" comedy worthy of the best and worst of Wong Jing's oeuvre, full of out-of-place boob jokes and over-the-top penis sight gags that literally have to be seen to be believed. In the case of the latter, at one point, In Jae's member gets injured so badly that he's forced to wear protective gear during his day-to-day activities. Here's the rub: the resultant bulge makes it seem like he's happy to see, well, just about everyone. The former joke involves legal eagle Jin Kyung stealing some confiscated Chinese breast enhancement cream, which she eventually applies to her pixyish frame, only to find that there really was a reason why her office confiscated it in the first place. The film also contains some amusing flashbacks, including one in which In Jae suspiciously resembles a spastic Howie Mandel! Other jokes rely heavily on Korean pop culture references, which while perhaps funny for native speakers, will likely go directly over the heads of non-Korean audience members, this reviewer included. Even so, there are plenty of funny moments that aren't lost in translation, one of the best being a situation in which the ultra suave In Jae comically loses his cool when a romantic trip to the movie theatre goes horribly awry.

But even as all this utter zaniness is going on, there's actually something quite curious occurring in-between the laughs - a fairly serious story about a mobster who's grown tired of his criminal life and longs for something more. Genuinely worried about what his lawyer girlfriend thinks and concerned for her career, he turns over a new leaf, but finds himself thwarted at every turn, first by his own brothers, later by his criminal rivals. It's a testament to Shin Hyun Jun's acting ability that these constant shifts in tone don't prove off-putting. Even as his character's personality haphazardly shifts to suit the demands of the script, he's able to deliver a convincing performance as a badass gangster, as a horny, somewhat infantile man-child, and even as a handsome romantic lead. Shin Hyun Jun plays each "type" with considerable aplomb, which helps make the somersaults in tone bearable, if not entirely believable.

The conflicts, both personal and professional, within the film come to a climactic head when a vicious crime boss frames the three Jang brothers, and they are put on trial by Jin Kyung's colleague/wannabe boyfriend (Kong Hyeong Jin). After learning of In Jae's criminal past, will Jin Kyung defend her boyfriend in court? Or will she leave him high and dry? Of course, anyone even remotely familiar with filmic conventions will know exactly what will happen next, as the film climaxes with a trial that's reminiscent of Stephen Chow's early courtroom comedies. Sure, the ending comes courtesy of an altogether convenient deus ex machina, but if you've been laughing hard enough at that point, Marrying the Mafia 2 probably won't warrant to that level of scrutiny.

Perhaps the most refreshing thing about Marrying The Mafia 2: Enemy in Law is how the character of the Jang family matriarch is handled. From her overdone makeup and larger than life presence in the opening sequence, one almost expects a cutthroat Mafioso-type, who would stop at nothing to break up her son's relationship with the lawyer, perhaps even going to extreme measures to protect her own interests. At the very least, considering how Korean comedies and melodramas tend to play out, one would expect some major league conflict between mother and daughter-in-law that may or may not result in reconciliation. But here, that's not the case at all. Thankfully, the film doesn't ask its audience to jump through these tired formulaic hoops. Rather than give us the typical domineering old harridan who thinks that no woman, particularly the story's heroine is good enough for her boy, we get a mother who just wants her son to be happy. When he's found the love of his life, she just has to figure out a way to make her family come off as the Korean version of the Cleavers, a deception that proves to have fairly comic results.

Although the plot could use some work, and the romance could have been developed further, the fact remains that I did laugh quite a bit during Marrying the Mafia 2. It's wacky fluff with an occasional serious edge, but thanks to a strong performance from leading man Shin Hyun Jun, Marrying The Mafia 2: Enemy in Law is one gangster comedy worth taking a shot at.

Entertaining mobster comedy Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
"Marrying the Mafia 2" begins as an occasionally crude slapstick comedy and ends as an uneven but effective romantic comedy. Shin Hyun Jun proves to be the perfect lead actor to carry this film, able to play a ruthless mobster-turned-lovelorn do-gooder with just the right comic touch. Sure, this is a silly and unrealistic tale, but it's an amusing popcorn flick for late Friday night diversion. Recommended.

Not that funny but still good! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Well, I thought this movie wasn't that funny but it is still a good movie. I think I the story; a gangster and a person that catches like each other. Good one!

I like the first movie better becasue I thought it was funnier and also had a great story. This one just has a great story.

The girl is pretty cute. I think she was kind of funny in the movie when she tried to make her boobs bigger. I don't think she needed to because she uses padding all the time and that does the job too.

Go watch this movie. :)
