Movie Info

Things are looking bleak for the members of rock band Tennis Pro. They've been struggling to connect to an audience in the Seattle music scene, with a recent run of shows drawing sparse crowds and uninspiring day jobs that are quickly eclipsing their dreams. So when an opportunity arises to take their act on the road to Japan - where the allure of a second chance at recognition awaits them - they can't refuse. Embarking on their Tokyo musical odyssey, the guys experience all the thrills and setbacks of taking their music into unknown territory (at least to them) and in the process learn a thing or two about themselves. It's just possible they won't fade away.

Critic Reviews for Big In Japan

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (1)

  • Much like most of the songs performed by the band whose misadventures drive its wispy plot, Big in Japan comes off as pleasantly diverting, vaguely familiar and instantly disposable.

  • What's missing is something to hold it all together: a sense of style, a consistent comic perspective, a leading man with charisma.

  • Certainly Big in Japan has its promotional aspect, but few films (or bands) manage the trick of both wanting to be liked and actually being likable.

  • While the novelty wears thin as contrivances mount in the home stretch, there's enough fun, charisma and witty sight gags along the way to keep you on board.
