First I thought this was another one of those weird Japanese things where they put a cross dressing pervert as the main character and it's totally normal and not even commented on. Turns out it's the writer himself, who is a comedian and he is playing the female lead role himself. The movie is about subtle humor found in the mundaneness of daily life of office workers. Maybe you need to be Japanese to fully grasp it, or be a fan of his previous comedy, but to me it was horribly dull and boring. Here and there you catch a hint of the humor, or at least recognize why a situation is meant to be funny conceptually, but it rarely really is.
