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.
Cast & Credits
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 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.
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, tightly-told and all around a good ride.
