Storyline

Chemistry student Keiko Obayashi catches her boyfriend in the bathtub with another woman, so she leaves Tokyo by train and ends up in Masao. There, she finds a job at a recently opened pharmacy. Five older men from other local stores are worried about the new pharmacy threatening their business, and plan to bring down the new establishment. That is, until they meet and fall in love with Keiko. The men become increasingly interested in her and discover that she plays lacrosse for a university. The men practice in secret, hoping to impress Keiko with their lacrosse skills and earn a date with her. She sees them practicing one day and agrees to coach them, and calls their team "Geronimo". A team from America eventually flies in to Masao for a match. Geronimo is the hero (scoring the team's one and only point), and although terribly defeated, the characters come to terms with themselves and their actions. Written by Gabrielle K.

Fun Comedy About College Girl and Some Silly Middle Age Men
18 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
