A young milktoast car rental company driver named Satoru Suzuki (Masanobu Ando) and a mousy nurse named Shizuko Sato (Hikari Ishida) are both in dire need of a confidence boost. Through a string of unbelievable events they meet and then fall into a wealth of yakuza money. They are chased by the monstrous yakuza as well as his stooge like young henchmen.

Haha so I think this is my first time writing a review. So sorry if it's a little short, I don't spend much time on this kind of thing. (too lazy :p)

I first watched this movie in High School. My friend had found it in one of those used VHS bins at the Flea Market, and let me tell you it was money well spent. This movie read more reminds me of those awesome 80's movies where two unlikely people meet up and end up on an insane, funny adventure. It's a quirky comedy, so if you like those types of movies you'll probably enjoy it.

This was probably my first live-action Japanese anything. My brother brought it home from Hollywood Video, that's how long ago it was. But I still love it to death!

My opinion is that anyone, any age, any gender, from any place can love this movie. A story about two nobodies who end up with a load of gangster money that changes their lives - what's not to like! It's wacky, funny, romantic, read more tightly-told and all around a good ride.

Go watch!

both are dark comedies with the "on the run from the yakuza with stolen money" plot. The main characters are likeable but the real entertainment comes from the amusing antics of the "bad guys".
