This parody of popular Japanese teenage girls' romances includes slapstick in a comedy of robbers versus robbers. When a gas leak explodes at a yakuza's headquarters, a shy, timid nurse and a meek rental car clerk gain possession of a briefcase of blood-soaked money. The rest is chase and escape, as the nurse is transformed to glamorous heroine and outsmarts the gangsters eager to recover the loot.Written by

yakuza action comedy
Shinobu Yaguchi's "Adorenarin doraibu" ("Adrenaline Drive" in English) manages to do a lot with a routine plot. The story involves a man who steals money from the yakuza, leading to a series of crazy adventures. It's not any sort of masterpiece, but like "Welcome Back, Mr. McDonald", it shows us that Japan does know how to make some zany movies. I recommend it.
