It's verry funny.
25 March 2004 | by (Kagawa,Japan) – See all my reviews

I at the beginning did not like this movie series. But this movie changed my thought. This movie could surprise me. Because as for this movie the American has been present. So far it is not to have front example. I looked at that movie with absorption. The funniest point after all was conversation of the Japanese and the American with this movie. Also the friendship of Michael of the American who comes and the Torasan of the protagonist is impressed. Me those where thought concerning the Japanese movie was changed are this movie.
