It's nice when a movie can bring a smile to your face.
23 August 2003 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

This is an absolutely delightful film. Throw a cute young lady from the glamorous world of high-fashion into the sweaty world of bicycle messengers, then add a pleasant blend of humor and action and a rivalry with motorcycle messengers, and this movie will bring a smile to your face. Her first day on the job is hilarious, and I even enjoyed the music video at the end of the film. (This review is in regard to the vcd version with English subtitles.) A truly perfect movie and another gem from Fuji TV.
