One of the funniest movies in years
24 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

After taking the blame for another disastrous advertising campaign, a man is asked by his arrogant boss to take his place as a judge at the world's biggest advertising competition (in Santa Monica) and rig the results to help a potential client. This is briskly paced as it throws tons of jokes out there, most of which hit the mark and are surprisingly hilarious. The fox commercial is an absolute riot. It's also a bit unpredictable during the latter half. There are a few brief moments of serious drama that come off as cheesy, but this is one of the funniest comedies in recent years, and almost all of the humor is clean family fun.

I think the reason why this film works so well is that the pacing is very fast and it never tries to be too serious. Many Japanese comedies are laid back and subversive, or out-of-this-world wacky, but the blistering pace here feels more like an American comedy - only executed far better than the typical American comedy.

I see myself re-watching this one a lot in the future.
