Goku is nothing like his anime self he's a geek in high school instead of a well-liked manly guy who has a million friends. what happened to Krillin and Yamcha?!
they tried to make it a high school kung fu movie instead of the magical science fiction world Goku , Chichi and Bulma ACTUALLY lived in.
So campy and silly that it's amusing to watch.
What I like about this first movie in the 'series' is it is SILLY and campy. It hardly takes itself seriously but the writing is better than the two sequels and its interesting.
