I saw this movie a few years ago as a late night movie on TV. The movie stars Mari Atsumi who was regarded as one of the first "porno" actress in Japan, but what she shows in this movie is less than what teen idols show on TV today. The movie is a very light comedy about a rich grandma (Chouko Iida), her lascivious son (Junzaburo Ban), and a misogynistic grandson (Keizo Kawasaki) buying off a bride school, and their involvement with the pretty clerk who works at the school (Mari Atsumi). There is not much more to the story, but it was fun to see the above mentioned actors and comedians whom were popular then, and they were funnier than I had expected. The movie was nostalgic for me.
