Sleepy Heads

"Tough to read subtitles when the movie keeps lulling you to sleep."
2 stars

I'm at a loss. I generally open a movie review with something interesting about the film at hand or the perception I had of it going in. As I can't recall anything interesting about the film and it was an unknown quantity prior to my viewing (indeed it is still), I've very little to say.

This was a weird one.

Three young Japanese guys spend a hectic evening in New York City, one that finds them running from gangsters, wooing comely secretaries, and attempting to get rid of the body when one of 'em drops dead from an O.D.

Like I said; weird. And the above synopsis makes Sleepy Heads sound considerably more entertaining than it is... though certainly no more original.

The allegedly humorous moments are broad and ill-timed, the banter is forced and frankly uninteresting, and the flick has no real pulse. It meanders and sputters.

Call it culture shock on my part; call it a bad film on Yoshifumi Hosoya's part. See it for yourself and I'm guessing you'll side with me.
