Guy meets crazy Bipolar girl.
11 May 2017 | by pinokiyoSee all my reviews

Slow-paced film about a divorced super jaded guy, working as a carpenter, suddenly meeting a super crazy bipolar girl (good natural? acting by her... I mean, she is legit crazy), who works for a hostess club and some kid amusement animal park.

There's some B-story about some guy at the carpenter workplace getting hated on/abused and they all play baseball together (yawn)

The ending is super super cheesy and absolutely horrible. The ending totally reminds me of exactly the same as "The Bad News Bears Go to Japan" (1978)

One of those films where you watch it if you have absolutely nothing better to do. It is not worth your time.
