tsuyoshi is a notch more goodlooking here than his other traditional 'good guy' roles in most dramas. I really love the play on beer and champagne to highlight the two characters' differences and also to show how they come together in the end. A totally feel-good movie with many hilarious moments. Whether or not you're a fan of Kusanagi or Ijima, this is a worthy film!!!

I really enjoyed this simple story. Tsuyoshi eventually warms up to Ijima's charms, and then the movie really gets interesting. The music video during the closing credits is really good too. Kyono Kotomi is very cute here also. Isn't Tommy Nagase in this too??

I wasn't a Kusanagi/Iijima's fan but it was a funny movie. I couldn't stop laugh for iijima. Now i like iijima esp after watching wedding planner, she's great in comedy.

Another Thumbs-up for me. This is a Movie, starring Tsuyoshi Kusanagi(SMAP), and Ijima Naoko. It's about a successful, snobby woman. Having everything taken away from her in the blink of an eye, and haveing to work with people she normally looks down upon. I liked this alot. For one, Tsuyoshi, played a chracter totally different from the sweet doormat types he usually plays. He was tanned, aggressive, and fast on that bike. Not oscar worthy. But a nice movie, with lots of Bicycle action.

interesting plot on cyclists.. love kyono kotomi here.. though rather predictable, it gets to the point that i'm watching for the pleasure of seeing them succeed.. a must-watch movie if you want to feel good..

Very funny and highly enjoyable movie... I chanced upon this on TV one night and it kept me entertain throughout... Love the part where they were chased by the bikers from the other company...

Dec 2003: Ijima naoko definately is the queen of comedy!! Very hilarious. The ending music video was quite special, watch it if you want to see those actors singing. Fun to watch.

I like this movie, it is quite relaxing.
My favourite is the last of part of the show where they did
a rap kind of song and the way they dance, "Cool!"
