Fun Comedy About College Girl and Some Silly Middle Age Men
After a stormy breakup with her boyfriend, 3rd year pharmacy student Keiko Obayashi (played by Rena Tanaka) rushes into a train, without paying any particular attention to where she is going. After falling asleep and coming to the end of the line, she finds herself applying for a job at a new drugstore that is about to open. Meanwhile, a group of middle age men that own run-down, less than competitive local businesses are fuming at the arrival of the new competitor drugstore. They decide to take action...but end up all falling hopelessly in love with young Obayashi-kun. ...which leads to their increasingly desperate attempts to learn the strange game of Lacrosse, which seems to be her hobby...
As a Japanese/American bilingual household with high school / college age daughter and sons...all of whom play Lacrosse... we had a great time with this film. We rolled around on the floor laughing.
It has the usual Japanese lightly suggestive/racy content, but no frontal nudity, swearing or violence. Extremely religious parents might be concerned; for everyone else it should be fine as family entertainment.
