This comedic Pink film (Japanese softcore) is filled with wild, athletic sex and absurd slapstick. It tells the story of a freeloading slacker who moves in with his very limber, single-mom girlfriend only to have duel it out with her jealous ex in a fierce bout of cricket wrestling.

Comments:

Perhaps an amusing film with a salacious title, but a dreadful DVD. As I said about other similar screeners sent to me - it definitely appeals more to the 'male' in me than the cinephile. This is obviously the production intent though.

The transfer is filled with weaknesses - single-layered, non-anamorphic, and interlaced but at least the English subtitles are optional. It's not particularly detailed and has noise artefacts. Audio is unremarkable but not that far off the original. I don't see any digital manipulation because it appears that nothing was really done but simply taking it from it's analog source. With 1080P being the new 'ideal' for home theater usage - this would be at the very opposite end of the spectrum.

The film seems an honest attempt at... something but it doesn't really evolve beyond just a weaker quality 'pink' exploitation sex movie. It has some mildly humorous moments. The price for this DVD is ridiculously expensive for what is being offered. Although we don't endorse it - we suggest Man, Woman and a Wall as a far better film of the same 'genre'.
