Trivia

This movie was a variation on one of the episodes in the Urusei yatsura (1981) TV series. In that episode, Ataru is sleeping during class, and keeps saying things in his sleep that enrage Mendou. meanwhile, his dreams turn out uniformly bad, thanks to Mujaki, who is trying to keep Baku fed. Therefore, he offers Ataru nightmare after hideous nightmare, until Ataru finally browbeats him into giving him the "harem" dream that appears in this movie. See more »

Quotes

[At Megane's Nazi-themed "Third Reich Decadent Cafe"]
Perm: But do you really think anyone'll come to a place that looks like this, Megane?
Chibi: Maybe we should have gone with the 'Hot Babes Coffee Shop' like Ataru suggested. Lum gave it her OK too, after all.
Megane: I won't have Lum acting like a bimbo. Besides, do you know how hard it was to collect money from everyone in class to open this place? I'll be damned if I'll let it be operated according to Ataru's weird tastes.
Perm: [Muttering] 'Weird tastes' he says...

Watch that movie!
24 September 2004 | by (Deitschlond, Wissädal) – See all my reviews

Once in your life time you can watch a movie that goes directly into your

heart. Beautiful Dreamer was this movie to me! Every time I watch it I cry

because of that wonderful love story. That doesn't mean that I cry watching every love story! Titanic for example: I didn't cry. Maybe a bit after noticing that still some hours of that s*** were to survive:-C But back to UY.

Rumiko Takahashi is a very gifted story teller and I love everything she creates. UY is hard for new watchers to understand, but if you just keep on laughing you will love it!!! Like Monty Python I also like to laugh about:-D

Watch it and love it*G*
