Seven young men desperate for quick money arrive at a desolate seaside bar Dog Days to be auditioned for "hosts" - a highly popular occupation to entertain female patrons with smooth talk and soothing smile while offering drinks at the "host clubs." Although their previous jobs vary from a street performer to an ex-banker, they are all happy to get the dream job easily until they discover that the "manager" has run away with their deposits! Seeing them discouraged, the sympathetic bar owner offers his place to open up a host club by themselves. With the help of his granddaughter Chika, who has a heart disorder, despite their initial confusion mixed with personal problems and a typhoon that almost blew down the place, they gradually find the true meaning of friendship, trust and love.

A Pleasant Surprise, Until The End
5 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had no expectations before watching this film. Obstensibly, its about seven guys who become hosts in a club after being conned of their money by an unscrupulous owner. The two main characters, Ryohei, a street performer, and Minako, who runs a venture capital company, cross paths. I like these two together, they both seem to have heart. The film gets sentimental at times, and its a case of "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade". At about the 90 minute mark, I'd give this film 9 stars. I won't and can't give away what happens in the last 16 minutes, because I can't understand it. The film just falls apart. Its just bizarre to me. I would have liked to see more of Minako (Hitomi Manaka). Without being a major beauty, she played the character earnestly and is probably the best part of the film. She was better than the 7 hosts. I don't know, it should have..I can't say. I do recommend it, but find it a total letdown, ultimately. I give it 6 stars for keeping me interested through most of it.
