Daily Lives of High School Boys Movie Review | Capsule Computers

Luke Halliday writes:

"Daily Lives of High School Boys is an adaptation of the popular anime and manga of the same name. The anime and manga are a wild and sometimes surreal look into the lives of high school boys, yet always underpinned with some grounding in reality. It is that very balance that made both the anime and manga so successful. The strange thing with the Daily Lives of High School Boys film is that for a live-action film it is baffling how that realism underpinning madness has completely disappeared here. If anything the live-action film is positively absurd and not in a good way. Despite its eccentricities, the film fails to capture the heart of the source material, instead what results in a dull film that makes little to no attempt of being anything more than an utter mess."

Japan has some amazing comedians. So why is it so hard for live action films to be genuinely funny without looking awkward and forced?
