A flimsy plot about Korean spies leads to a climactic sight gag involving an enhanced version of George W. Bush's forefinger, but it's all window dressing for the main attraction: lots of bouncing T & A.
The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai is far less silly than it thinks it is. The upbeat vibe of super-female power misfires with a gratuitous rape scene.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Conceptually outlandish but routinely executed, this comic exploration of macho, control-freaky power struggles the world over remains skin-deep.
| Original Score: 2/4
Sachiko Hanai is pretty much just raunch, much like the stuff that insinuates itself onto late-night premium channel programming. And which gets old fast.
| Original Score: 1/4
Combines soft-core porn with a fantastical sci-fi plot.
An apocalyptic political satire.
Just don't mistake it for something classier.
| Original Score: C
As befits the form, enjoyment of this film will depend almost entirely on one's appreciation of the substantial anatomical charms of its lead actress.
| Original Score: 3/6
The overripe morsel who gets batted around in the Japanese absurdithon The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai looks like she was conjured up by a teenage boy in dangerous hormonal overdrive.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Uninspired staging and pacing manage the near-impossible feat of rendering such lunatic concepts dull.
