Movie Info

Based on the manga by Aya Nakahara, Love.Com is a Japanese teenage romantic comedy with an over the top twist. Every lively and bright scene, expression, and gag is styled to look like it was pulled right out of the pages of a colorful shojo comic book. The story centers around Risa Koizumi, who is the tallest girl in her high school class - by a lot. This is not only embarrassing because it makes her stick out of every crowd like a sore thumb, but it makes finding a boyfriend pretty difficult, as it places her quite a distance in the air above just about every boy in school -- especially Atushi Otani. He's the shortest boy at her high school and, of course, the two of them constantly pick on each other. Their rivalry, however, seems to change in tone as time goes on, and they become a great and entertaining team, so great that all their classmates treat them like a regular comedy duo. Soon though, Risa starts to notice that her feelings for Atushi have turned from friendship to love, and she doesn't know what to do. They've been friends for so long, but would they make a good couple? Not to mention the fact that they would look pretty silly together: a beanpole girl and a pint sized boy. Could the most unlikely couple in school really be meant for each other? ~ Cammila Albertson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Love.Com: The Movie

Silly, but so kawaii, can't fail to enjoy this! It's apparently based on a manga, so it is a little exaggerated with some very over the top characters. (I am sure that older sister is played by a man). The teacher with the wig is amusing too. Overall just a nice, cute little teen movie. I liked it a lot.

Charming, funny, romantic, sad, silly. Everything a first-love flick should be. The simple story of a height-challenged boy in love with the tallest girl is augmented by a manga-inspired visual flair, and set in the ultra colorful world of hip contemporary Japan, where teenagers' hairstyles and fashion accessories are more interesting and awe-inspiring than most American summer action flicks.

This live-action movie is a disappointment after watching the superb "acting" of the anime series. Give this a miss if you plan to catch the 24-episode series. Otherwise, you may draw a few laughs from this quirky movie adaptation in compressed time. Koike does a decent job playing Otani -- I wonder if HSM3 was ripped off partially from this -- but the female leads are not convincing at all.
