It was a great comedy which is what I went to see, and as a drama, it's a lot to take in.

Though I really really loved what this movie was doing, I felt that K-Town Cowboys had big shoes to fill and a lot of weight on its shoulders that caused them to have a lot on it's plate. On it's very best side, K-town Cowboys works as a frat boy comedy with the unique and diverse twist of having an all Korean cast instead of the usual white boy mix. On that level it works very well. It's very funny, especially the character of Pete, a jock type, despite being a fashion student, who was the butt of everyone's jokes due to being simple minded. It's also very informative of Korean-American culture. I saw in a few reviews the movie is taking flak for being misogynistic, which is true, but if this is the culture, than this is the culture, which is what K-town Cowboys is telling us. Some of the things about club culture I have herd about before, although it was done to make it seem more causal than I would have expected. It's a very male dominated movie similar to Entourage. I did love how deep into the Korean-American culture K-Town Cowboys get. Only a handful of films that speak on the topic, most of them are about the immediate family rather than the extended family that makes up your boys. Trying to fit all this culture in this one movie was sometimes hard to swallow all at once, but it did give some amazing depth to all the characters you would not expect in a comedy of this stature. A lot of it was just an inside look on Korean-Americans, but was not funny, which sometimes took me out of the vibe cause it tended to go on for very long periods of time in between laughs, or maybe I'm just mistaken on what type of film this was. Well it works for me better as a non white frat boy comedy I came to see, which is as rare in Hollywood, as the dramatic film on Korean- American culture that it also is. Wonder what the web series it's based on is like? Gotta see.

Non stop fun that makes you wish the movie never ends

I had the opportunity to watch this movie at home on iTunes. I was referred to it by a friend, so I had some time to kill and said why not, lets try this movie. The only thing I am disappointed is that I rented it and not bought it. Within the first 3 minutes I am already laughing, and at the end of the movie I am cursing it for ending. It's non-stop fun, laughter, and it has its "aww" moments. Diving deep into the Korean-American culture of Los Angeles it gives you a tour of the inner workings of Korea Town and the culture that has woven itself into the fabric of what is Los Angeles. This awesome movie begins to teach you that regardless of who we really are, If you live in LA regardless of your ethnicity, we as Angelenos, are all the same! Excellent movie I strongly recommend it to watch with some friends over some food and drinks!

Great Movie about American Culture

I thoroughly enjoyed this film about a side of America that we rarely see. In fact, it is movies like this that allows Americans to write their own narrative so that we can have a world where a Trump doesn't exist. I enjoyed the complex character of Jae and how he views himself as an older brother of his family friend's daughter. In today's politically correct society, many men do not see how to be a protective figure to women in their families. This movies shows a way for Americans to follow in Jae's footsteps and become a man. Also, I enjoyed seeing a different perspective about how Americans are treated by others. Bobby's character in going through racism shows that Americans also go through racism as well. It shows an important viewpoint that I hope all of America can see. Overall a great movie and clearly ahead of its time.
