A Crazy Watch
5 June 2014 | by ShifuYakuSee all my reviews

Now see, I must say that this movie will not turn out to be what you expect. It has lots of laughs, great Japanese mannerisms, and a plot twist at the end that will make you so angry, you'll wonder why you even started watching this movie. Without giving too much away, Tanaka is a man who has left his home in the country to become "a big city boy." During his high school years, he had made a bet, with all of his friends included, that they would get together some day and discuss when they lost their virginity. As the time is winding down closer to when Tanaka needs to meet his friends to tell of his successes, he becomes concerned because he hasn't accomplished anything he wanted to do! A great movie to sit down with some nice udon or ramen, and laugh your butt off; I encourage you to give it a chance.
