Everything Hostel wished it could've been

Kazuto and friends, with a spaceship crashed on his bath-house, must now deal with everyday challenges and trouble while trying to figure out how to kill the fish dealer and his mother they have to flee from the police, what finally leads to their suicides...... including more crash landings. The video label which distributes the first part of "Trilogy of cross dressing" here in the United Arab Emirates advertised it as "A first rate trashy film. A deliberate effort to corrupt and degrade whichever profession participated in this shabby extravaganza." The rest is business as usual! Nagare Hagiwara looks good with nothing on and obviously enjoys it. Ryo Ishibashi portrays himself as a first rate nutter, yet again. Takashi Miike had the balls to cast the pair of them in roles they would never again rise above. I think this is an example of one of those movies where people see a really famous name attached to it and automatically assume it's the next greatest thing -- this is hardly the case. Additionally, the plot is relatively absent.

The middle section of the film gets bogged down is some pretty broad 'comedy" routines that include a chubby guy disco dancing, but it's a complete waste of a talented cast.
