Reviews for this film from our members:
- Beth Accomando @ KPBS Cinema Junkie
- Excerpt: Director Choo Chang-min delivers a familiar tale with elegant skill and assurance. He proves that if you have a good story, there’s no need to gild the lily.
- [New – 8/8] | Bev Questad @ It’s Just Movies
- Excerpt: The ravages of power, even in Gwanghae’s case, corrupt. But when the professional comedian, who can laugh at others as well as himself, is commanded to switch places with the king, how does the game change?

- Excerpt: It’s a robust, colorful, masterfully-spun yarn. It calls to mind the great MGM technicolor swashbucklers of the forties and fifties, and the great Ivan Reitman political comedy “Dave”.
