Sadly, garbage.
8 February 2003 | by (Marugame, Japan) – See all my reviews



Takeshi Kitano is a genius. One of the greatest film makers of all time and his finest achievement, 'Hana-bi' is perhaps my all-time favourite film.

Having said that; 'Getting Any?' is garbage.

Quite what he was thinking; I'm really not sure. The often hilarious comedic moments from his other works are completely missing. Instead they are replaced with a level of humour so foolish and out of date you would struggle to find comparable examples even on the worst Japanese TV shows these days.

I wanted to like 'Getting Any?' I love Kitano's other films and I enjoy watching him on TV but about two thirds of the way through this sloppy mess I completely lost interest; only hanging on until the end because it was in fact a Takeshi Kitano film.

It really is a great shame that Kitano has this rotten dog waste situated in the middle of an otherwise fantastic record of quality film making. It amuses me to read people making excuses for the film when it is clear that if any other director of the caliber of Kitano had made this film, it would be met with universal disdain and bewildering disbelief.

Thankfully, 'Getting Any?' is just an unfortunate blip on a resumé filled with great moments.
