The Japanese Equivalent of Epic Movie
19 January 2010 | by hickey2See all my reviews

This film is completely idiotic, unfunny trash. The humor in it caters to a five year old's sensibilities at best. I chuckled twice, maybe, but the rest of the time I was rolling my eyes and cursing at the relentless stupidity on screen. I can't believe I made it all the way through the movie, but I forced myself to because I have a bizarre compulsion to finish movies I've started, provided I've rented them and not just tuned into them on TV, and I had indeed (unfortunately) rented it for a whole 80 yen. The only reason I rented it in the first place was that it was one of the only Japanese movies there that had English subtitles; had I had any idea of how bad it was going to be, I would have left it on the shelf, or paid not to be burdened with it.

An example of the humor you can expect to find throughout the movie: in the opening scene, the female boss of this magazine is yelling at the main character, a journalist, and giving him an assignment he doesn't want to do. Then she farts really loud. And goes, "Oops, that was me...Oops, I may have made a mess. I'm going to go clean up. I'll be back."

That's about as highbrow as it got.
