“If it were possible Iu0026#39;d give this film a higher score.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhen I visited Japan in 1997 I saw a TV program that previewed this movie. I had always remembered what the film was about, but I had long forgotten the title of the film and I had never seen it in the United States as the big city I live in isnu0026#39;t big enough for films like this.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFast forward to late 2009 when my wife and I decided to go to our local library to borrow films to watch. We were looking for Japanese films that we hadnu0026#39;t seen, and this was one of them. I couldnu0026#39;t believe I had finally found the film I was searching for.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis is a great film and is laugh out loud from start to finish. I had to look at some scenes a second and third time to catch the action I had missed from laughing. Of course, for the week I had it I watched it several more times!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe fact that this is a screwball comedy means that action takes place in the background as well as directly in front of the camera. Therefore, it is necessary to look fast and catch all the action, or rewind and watch it again and again and again.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you like to laugh this film fills the bill very nicely. Not many people can pull off the high quality of this type of film. This film is my new all time favorite movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI wish I hadnu0026#39;t had to wait so long to find it. In my opinion, on a scale of 1 to 100 I proudly give this film 1,000,000! (Iu0026#39;m not paid to say this.) u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHappy viewing, and donu0026#39;t eat or drink anything while watching this film…youu0026#39;ll choke.”
