Handsome Suit

Got to know abt this movie thru the radio… their review was good… wanted to catch this movie since ytd… but it seems tat all of my frens are not interested to watch…

lucky S is keen to watch tis movie… if not i would have missed such a nice movie…

*****

Handsome Suit is a hilarious comedy about a physically unattractive guy who turns into a hunk whenever he wear a special suit.

Takuro is our ugly main character, who makes up for his looks with a heart of gold and humour. He works at a chef in his mother’s diner and falls in love with his beautiful part-time worker, Hiroko.

To no one’s surprise, he’s rejected when he confesses his love towards Hiroko. Takuro firmly believes the reason for his rejection is his looks. But before he even has time to consider plastic surgery, he meets a salesman who introduces him to the ‘Handsome Suit’. Thus begins his double life as the gorgeous model, Annin Hikariyama and the unappealing chef, Takuro.

The Good:
The movie is funny throughout in depicting Takuro’s adventures and experiences. You’ll find yourself laughing at his awkward transformation into a hunk and his bid to lead both lives.

If you were to look deeper into the movie’s humour, you’ll most likely find yourself asking:

Would you discard everything to pursue superficial perfection?

Is what is on the outside what ultimately counts?

I know I wondered about these 2 questions when Takuro had to choose between his 2 person.

The way the movie shows its main character’s conflicting personalities as Annin and Takuro draws you into the plot and you will find yourself relating with Takuro.

The Bad:
The physical-beauty-is-important storyline kind of reminds you of both the Shrek movies and the Korean movie, 200 Pounds Beauty. Despite some similarities, The Handsome Suit certainly has some refreshing twists in the plot to keep you guessing about Takuro’s eventual decision whether to remain ugly or become handsome. Look out for the unexpected final plot twist!

The Ugly:
The only ugly aspect of the movie is Takuro and the suit, which looks like a cross between Pillsbury Doughboy and the Michelin Mascot.

The Verdict:
Watch this movie! Takuro may be ugly but The Handsome Suit is definitely adorable.

S and i had a great laugh thru out the entire movie… i nearly got choke while drinking…

after the movie… i wanted to catch a cab back home from wdls…

S and hubby dropped me off near the mrt taxi stand and i managed to hail the one and only cab there…

when i entered the taxi… i could smell a very strong acohol smell…

initially the driver is quite polite… i regretted the moment i told him my address…

i started to felt uncomfortable wif the acohol smell… i realised the driver unstable when he talks to me and the way he drives… he started to ask me STUPID QUESTIONS and i ignored him…

he seems unable to recognise the way to get out of the wdls circle… he asked me how to go to tampines as he is new… but from the way he talks and drives… i am very sure that he is drunk… getting more and more worried… i saw him going towards PIE when i told him i wanted to go by TPE…

immediately asked him to stopped by the side and told him tat i will take another cab instead…

he stopped and demand for $3 fare… i am damn angry lor… but for my safety wise… i jus pay him as its getting late… i dun wan him to beat me up for tat $3…

lucky i managed to hail another cab right after i alighted… and safety back home… tis type of taxi driver… should be caught and suspend their license sia… endanger anyone’s life…

Marley & Me

went to watch marley & me this afternoon… initially i thought it’s a light-hearted movie about a couple and a puppy… but it turned out to be kind of sad… especially when the dog is dying… reminds me of my dog…

a very touching movie… for those who loved dogs… it’s a must catch movie… even though its kind of sad but super meaningful movie…

the movie is super touching… and i din expect so many ppl cried… including me and WY… two sobbing away in the cinema… kind of embarrassed but worth watching movie…

Marley & Me = WY & Me (two cry babies)

kind of shocked tat the tix has been increase to 10 bucks… but quite worth the money overall…

especially “you don’t mess with the zohan”… is a must watch movie… is even funnier than what u expect…

as the sex and the city movie… its definitely a feel good movie

this movie is best watched with ur girl friends… it definitely shows how empowered women are .

but behind all the Labels , you will see that at the end of the day what matters most are for a woman to feel loved and of course how much we love ourselves.

And need not be in NY to find those 2 Ls , movie showed , anywhere can be NY if we choose it to be.

i cried the part where Big runaway from the wedding and carrie was heart broken by his acts… felt so sad for her… and teared abit… *emotion*

had a great weekend watching movies, going shopping and having dinner… had been a long time since the last time i enjoyed my weekends… especially have been extremely busy and held up for past few months…

hope everything will be fine for next coming week and GoodLuck to my interview tml… *pray*
