A great comedy. Michael Keaton's performance as the "every man" was perfect.
Opie directs a movie, OK at best
Funny but falls a bit flat and short.
It was in the 1980's.Many Japanese companies built factories here in the United States.There were cultural conflicts.This is a funny movie about differences between Japan and the United states.This is a classic movie in the 1980's , but we still learn a lot of things from this movie.
I love the story.There were many conflicts and friendships between Kazuhiro (Japanese manager)and Hunt Stevens (American manager).But finally they understood each other.They built 15,000 cars in order to keep the factory in their city..Basically, this is a well done story of mutual understandings of different cultures.
Michael Keaton played an American Manager ,Hunt Stevonson.He showed a great leadership.He persuaded Japanese.He inspired Americans.He was a great role model.
Hunt's introduction was great.He said Hajimemashte(Nice to see you) Yoroshiku onegaishimasu.This kind of humble words are very important to work with Japanese.
Gedde Watanabe played a Japanese manager.He is a typical sarary man who is always afraid of his boss.He really loves his family.His wife was typical Japanese who wouldn't interfere with her husband's business.
Daily exercise, I guess that many Japanese factories ask employees to do the daily raido-taiso exercise in the morning. It build a great team work sprot.Finally Americans understood
Japanese employees are doing good.But most of them are not Japanese native .
The president of Assan, So Yamamura did a great job.He played a tough president.But finally, he liked American guys.
What Americans learn? Japanese are crazy about no defect.. That's why People around the world love Japanese products.However, there are huge efforts of quality control at Japanese factories i n order to realize no defect.
Japanese arrive early and leave leave They don't take a lunch break.Although,some Japanese died of too much work(Karoshi)
Why many American manufactures have gone to China, Mexico and other countries.. The reason is not only cheap wages but hard workers overseas. If America tried to keep manufactures,they work 'Crazy" like Asians.
I love this movie.
Automotive engineer's company is bought out by a Japanese rival and the engineer must rally his workers to outperform the expectations of their new owners.
Michael Keaton stars as a fast talking automotive executive whose company is taken over by a Japanese company and must now prove to the new owners that Americans can make the same quality of automobile as the Japanese are known for. This comedy tries to tell a message while trying to stay light hearted but instead the end result is an uneven comedy.
Yeah, it's maybe a little racist in hindsight, but it is a movie with good intentions. I think it succeeds in a small, humble sort of way. Michael Keaton is pretty good, and as stereotypical as the Japanese characters are, I actually enjoyed their characters, especially Gedde Watanabe's.
A funny look at culture clashes between America and the Japanese and how different the cultures are when it comes to running things.
It's a fun movie with some funny personalities but really there isn't much more to it.
lightweight film, seems guite dated in style and subject matter Michael Keatons Ok
Ron Howard cant help but bring in the schmaltz and cheese by the end
Has some funny skits. Entertaining. Man sets out to get support from Japan to keep a auto construction plant and town alive.
