An Entertaining Anthology of Quirky Japanese Tales
This is an anthology film, with four short stories told by four different directors. In the first, Chiharu (Nanami Sakaruba) leads a trio of cheerleaders whose mission in life is to cheer up those in need, an avocation that leads to unintended consequences. In "Boy? Meets Girl" shy Muratsubaki (Aoi Nakamura) is ignored by everyone until his friend Kato, an aspiring make-up artist, gives him a makeover and dresses him as a girl; as "Muri," suddenly the shy boy is the belle of the camera club, and the girl of his dreams wants Muri to be her model. Third up is a story about the customer from hell, a woman (Japanese TV star Tomochika) who makes the power company representative come to her home to reconnect her power, which was turned off when she didn't pay her bill on time, and one thing leads to another....And finally, "The House Full of 'Abandoned' Businessmen" is what the title says – a woman (Kyoko Koizumi) who used to bring home stray cats starts bringing home stray recently-fired businessmen, feeding them and giving them a place to spend their days while not telling their families that they've lost their jobs.

These stories are all different, and very funny in their own quirky ways. Nothing terrifically life-changing here, but a rollicking 91 minutes of fun, and another bit of filmic proof of how odd Japanese sub-cultures can be. Quite enjoyable.
