Well at least it has Yu Aoi in it
13 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie really isn't for everyone, I personally didn't enjoy it as much. But it does have it's target audiences that would enjoy this movie. There is usually a imbecile that is part of a family or a relative that cause trouble even a lot of trouble for the family members. And that is what this movie is about for the most part. Even watching that imbecile cause trouble after trouble for everyone that actually somewhat care about him, just made me angry throughout the whole thing. Which is fine, I have seen many films with a villain or a character that I really despised. But the thing about this movie is that, the imbecile in this doesn't seem to understand that he is a imbecile and causing trouble for others around him. I just can't understand the nerve of some people, especially how imbeciles like him would make other people clean up his mess continuously. I guess the movie sends out a message to imbeciles out there, like the character in this movie. I personally didn't get immersed in the scenarios, even though I understand Japanese culture and stuff. I gotta admit the main reason I watched this movie was because of Yu Aoi and she is still pretty as ever. Unfortunately she is just a supporting character in this.

3.5/10
