Light hearted cultural comedy
17 May 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a light hearted and lightweight comedy with the family of an American Navy officer in Japan dealing with a house full of servants who interpret and misinterpret American cultural habits in various ways which lead to chaos and embarrassment. This is further complicated by the overbearing wife of the officer's immediate superior.

People watching for Shirley Yamaguchi will likely be disappointed as despite a high billing, her part is peripheral unlike her other American films (House of Bamboo, Japanese War Bride) which had her in genuine lead roles with depth.

Also lacking is any kind of visual exploration of Japan. This was filmed in the US at indoor settings and sets.
