Storyline

Go-Con is a fashionable Japanese-English word often used by young and trendy Japanese. It means hanging out in a new age matchmaking style that suits the Japanese, especially the ones who are shy and reserved. Three young layabouts use a cafe as a meeting place for their go-con affairs. Initially, they enjoy their trysts with all kinds of women who include high school girls, office ladies, air stewardess and divorced housewives. Even the chefs in the kitchen get into the thick of the action by taking bets on which girl the three horny kids will finally pick up. But things started taking a turn for the worse when an old flame signs up for the go-con. Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

Japanese teens show they're no different to teens anywhere else in the world
29 September 2000 | by bigz-2See all my reviews

Quirky, truly Japanese film that's a little feel-good, funny, and ultimately satisfying. The entire movie is pretty well shot on three sets -- a restaurant table where four guys try to crack onto an endless procession of Japanese girls of varying types, the restaurant kitchen where the cooks bet on who's going to end up with who, and the bathrooms where the characters relieve themselves/take drugs/have sex/get bashed up. The Japanese actresses are stunning, the guys prove that guys are guys all over the world. Interesting sound and vision in the first part of the film where it's unsynchronized.
