    Fun. It's a trip to Japan with a few married friends whose wives stayed home - nothing out of control, but still a satisfying good time. It's a small adventure that rings true with a documentary style about a band struggling in their home town who decide to take an opportunity in Japan. They have some minor mishaps and a few things that may cause some trouble for the band, but they forge on. It's like a doc that's been shot as a romantic comedy. The smooth filming style gives it an elegance, and altho likeable, there is a blandness to the leads, but still just enough flash and panache to keep it light and humming along. It's more adventure than comedy, but interesting if only for the trip overseas and the intriguing minor characters that are filled with a very light, but still warm glow. 3.5 poppy punk guitar riffs out of 5

    Funny, real, unexpected, heartfelt, and the music was good, too.
