happy flight

come fly with me...


i'd forgotten that i watched this, but i did. it's the last film from writer / director shinobu yaguchi; the man who brought us 'waterboys' and 'swing girls'. as you may guess, there's a large ensemble cast who play a wide range of fun characters, triumphing in the face of adversity. so, he has a formula, but it works so very well...

here we have the coming together of a group at an airport and on board a long haul flight; things start to go a little awry and all the stops must be pulled out to make sure the flight is both happy and safe. like other works from yaguchi, the cast is brilliantly compiled, whilst the script is funny and feel-good.

good stuff...

the dvd is hk$37 from buyoyo.com
