Trivia

There are references in the film to the term "limerence" which was coined by psychologist Dorothy Tennov and is an involuntary state of mind which results from a romantic attraction to another person combined with an overwhelming, obsessive need to have one's feelings reciprocated. See more »

The Reason People Still Watch Crappy Blockbuster Films
9 May 2018 | by GraceleeRHSee all my reviews

This film was a mess from start to finish. I am not even going to go anywhere near concepts like acting, character development or artistic merit. Those notions are cities in Siberia in relation to this film.

What we have here is a director in love with a Japanese woman (who btw cannot speak Japanese properly) and literally (please note I said literally) fifty-percent of the film is a zoom-in focus on her face. The other fifty-percent of the film is divided between the said girl's desire to lay some random trash, smoke, get high and drink alcohol out of a brown paper bag and some random racism and even more random fake Mexican diner of which we see nothing.

This film shows that America has money to burn and, oh, for those who like to see inexplicable close-ups of a Japanese girl jumping in bed with an ugly douche well there is a film for that too.
