Romance is weak but funny as hell

First I want to say I haven't watched the original movie so I can't compare but I know it is regarded as one of the best romantic comedy so I bet this is nowhere near in terms of chemistry and romance, though this Japanese remake is hilarious as hell. Not the best romantic comedy even in Japan, it lacks authenticity compared to other great rom-coms, but it is still better than most fast paced manga based romance movies we get these days, where the pace is the speed of shinkansen train.

The strongest point of this movie is during the beginning where characters perform their own slapstick comedy, from Muro Tsuyoshi, Yamada Takayuki, Taiga and Sato Jiro(which is I think the funniest). Although the movie is strong in the comedy department, it lacks in romance especially the later part of the film when it was in it's climax. It was a bit boring and the romance is insincere.

The theme song they use is "One More Time One More Chance", if you by any chance know the anime movie "5 centimeter per second" it is the same song used in that movie. You couldn't choose a more fitting Japanese song for this story. Acting is great from both leads but it's a shame that their chemistry is not that great, this is the second time Takayuki Yamada and Nagasawa Masami both starred in a romance movie, first was in "say hello for me" where they also have no chemistry.

As expected from Fukuda, the director of puerile hits like Psychic Kusuo, Gintama and Hentai Kamen, the film retains the wide-ranging comedy of Sandler's original, which is so uncomfortable alongside the central novel. The Hawaiian locality also asks the directors to interact with various English-speaking minor characters, resulting in an abundance of bad performances and awkward dialogues. Although they are both agreeable artists, Yamada and Nagasawa do not have the natural chemistry that Sandler and Barrymore had. When their lips meet, there is no sign of passion or furious libido. "50 First Kisses" almost fulfilled the numerical promise of his title. Too bad none of them are good.
