Fun but shallow
This comedy movie is about an incredibly fat and ugly guy who gets to try a prototype suit that makes anyone handsome.
As you would expect, the film shows that what's inside is more important than looks. And as you would expect... this movie is very cheesy.
It was pretty funny as a comedy, but there's not much more to it. Kitagawa Keiko's acting was horrible as usual, contributing even more into the cheesiness of this film.
There were some positive aspects in this movie though. It had a very fast pace that kept me interested throughout the runtime, and Tanihara Shousuke, who I consider to be a very inconsistent actor, performed very well in my opinion.
The casting (other than Kitagawa Keiko), were very well-done. Although many of them are poor actors, they looked the part. The many, many cameos were very entertaining, and I was especially pleased to see the cameo appearance by LEGENDARY Watanabe Misato singing "My Revolution".
