Movie Info

Portly television comedian Muga Tsukaji and former male model Shosuke Tanihara team up to deliver laughs in this Japanese comedy about a talented-yet-unattractive chef who becomes irresistibly handsome after being fitted with a revolutionary "handsome" suit. Takuro Ohki (Tsukaji) may make a mean tempura, though the ladies flee in horror thanks to his abrasive behavior and repulsive fashion sense. A friend's wedding fast approaching, Takuro heads for a local clothing store to pick out a tuxedo. But the tailors here are especially talented, and in no time flat they've fitted him with a brand new "handsome" suit. Upon donning the threads, Takuro is instantly transformed into perfectly chiseled slice of beefcake (Tanihara). Adapting the more masculine name Annin Hikariyama ("Lightning Mountain") for his handsome new persona, the once unlucky-in-love cook becomes the toast of the Tokyo fashion scene, scoring a male modeling job and instantly appearing on the radar of popular high profile supermodel Raika (Mayumi Sada). Back in the kitchen, Takuro keeps his new life a secret while hitting it off with plump new employee Motoe (Miyuki Oshima). Meanwhile, out on the town, every time Takuro gets close to Raika the malfunctioning suit threatens to reveal the true man underneath, in all his bloated glory. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

flamboyant CGI and animated inserts are added in an apparent attempt to cover up an over-obvious, already over-stretched plot, not to mention a rather forced sense of hilarity.
