1. Got boring after ep 8 [Rating: 6/10]
It's a shame really... great cast, got off to a pretty good start.. then it started to tread slowly towards the end. Kinda forced myself to finish it really.

Jodan Ja Nai! is the perfect title for this drama, "Are you kidding me!?" is really all that comes to mind when trying to describe this show.

How two of the best actors in Japan (Oda Yuji and Ueno Juri) coupled with one of my favourite directors (Doi Nobuhiro - Orange Days and Ima ni Yukimasu movie) created this terrible drama is beyond me, this is seriously the most dissapointing drama I've ever seen. Everyone involved should be ashamed of themselves.

was really excited to watch this since it seemed to have a stunning cast with a very promising story line. and ueno juri and oda yuji did have good chemistry. BUT, alas the downfall came with the actress they chose to play the mother of juri and former lover of oda yuji. she was a very very annoying character to watch and she felt too old for oda! after watching about 5-6 eps, i had lost all interest to continue finishing it. sad...

After 7-8 episodes, I have finally thrown down the towel. I give up.

Yes there are some comical situations but overall, the characters are not worth it and nor is the story. Despite the cast of great actors this series has, they couldn't captivate me enough to want to watch more every week and so, I give up.

oh mine Takamura Keita is certainly not in condition and his act is at times over, trying too hard. And with Takamura Eren, they make an pretty odd couple. Throw in the mother in law who is his ex-lover, you know the drill. Some of the situational comedy bits do work but who really cares about those characters?

Fairly average family drama. Decent performances all around, but much too melodramatic for my tastes. At least it wasn't downright bad and even after considering dropping it, I finished the last few episodes anyways. It has its amusing moments and is certainly watchable.
6. Comments by deseipher [Rating: 4/10]
I gave this drama a shot simply because Ueno Juri was in it, but she alone could not save this drama from a weak story and little character development. Even Ueno Juri doesn't bring much to the table in this one, sticking to her cute charm and a pouty face to swoon over.

COMPLETE. disgusting.plainly disgusting. I just can't process t in my mind how a mother can be that low.... your daughter married ur ex, and you braved yourself to disturb their relationship. this is just plain wrong. rub me the wrong way

This is a very "Jodan Ja Nai!" dorama. A 40 years old ohtaku married to a 20 years old college girl who happened to be the daughter of his ex girlfriend. Unbelievable plot but still enjoyable to watch. A life without you? Jodan Janai!
9. Comments by tabana [Rating: 7/10]
7.5 Amazing cast, but the drama could have been better. A few funny moments, but sadly it should have been shorten to 6 or 7 episodes. Some episodes are worst than others, but still enjoyable.

July 2007: Nice cast and funny at times. Just that it gets annoying when Joudai janai was repeated for the !@#@!#th time. Kinda draggy in the end. Ijima Naoko is funny, as usual =D

Can't believe that with such a talented cast, this drama is one of the most horrible that I've ever seen. Can't believe I watched it till the end either. Joudan ja nai! :/
12. Comments by michimaru [Rating: 8/10]
this was ridiculous. i watched this purely for Oda Yuji (Ueno Juri actually annoyed me in this series). somehow, i ended up watching the whole thing. really, jodan janai!!!
13. Comments by chinz [Rating: 7/10]
a just-for-entertainment, lighthearted storyline, and kindof exaggerated.... not much content, not much development of character... happy ending... can watch if haf time.

Watching for the sake of Juri-chan. Although her talent seems to be wasted by this typical kind of role, but I enjoy the sweet moments between her and Oda Yuji's role.
15. Comments by sasukekun6 [Rating: 6/10]
Well...that was ridiculous. I don't really know what to say besides that and I feel bad for Keita. I wanted to smack the Ueno Juri for the majority of the drama.
16. Comments by Tad [Rating: 6/10]
Thought it was gonna be pretty good but overall quite disappointing. I'm not much of a fan of Ueno Juri - she and her character were annoying to say the least.
17. Comments by ffrostte [Rating: 6/10]
It was alright at first but then it was getting more and more ridiculous with not much surprises in between.

Thought it could be better ...
18. Comments by bmwracer [Rating: 6/10]
Utterly predictable domestic drama with a different plot twist. A waste of Ueno Juri's acting talent. Rather disappointing, to say the least.

jodan janai !!! the main point of this dorama is to make fun of marriage, i cant imagine such a low mother in law and brainless son in law
20. Comments by gaijinmark [Rating: 5/10]
Pretty good cast, pretty bad drama. Oda and Iijima weren't bad, but Juri Ueno's voice was like nails on a chalkboard.

Have to get this one again.....Deleted it because I was running low on space on computer.

I like beautiful scenery, so I'd say I give credit to the few scenes in France.

Kind of makes me want to slap each character in the face to set them right.
24. Comments by cirrus [Rating: 4/10]
A drama with a pretty bad plot. Such a pity, considering the talented cast.

40 years old man married with 20 years old girl? what a lucky guy.

Interesting in the beginning but becomes a bit boring in the end.
