Product Overview

Risa Koizumi is taller than the average girl, and the last thing she wants is the humiliation of standing next to Atsushi Otani, a shorter-than-average boy. Fate and the whole school have other ideas, however, and the two find themselves cast as the unwilling stars of a bizarre romantic comedy duo. But as their friendship develops, so do Risa's feelings toward Otani.

Editors Note
Note She's really, really tall. He's really, really short. But is this unlikely duo a match made in heaven? Maybe they're the perfect couple, but since the two bicker and fight all the time, perhaps they're more destined to become like the famous comedy duo their friends are always comparing them to. Based on the popular manga and adapted into a video game, this is a live-action version of the touching and comical story of two outcasts finding romance in the most unlikely place--and the fine line between staying friends and risking it all to find true love.

Review When dealing with manga-to-movie adaptations (or any adaptation for that matter), the director and his staff have to be very careful with the material that they have at their disposal. When all is said and done, and the film is released, the reaction to it can lead numerous paths. For instance, the film could be a disservice to the original fan base, displeasing hardcore fans alike. On the flip side, the film could also follow the route of being a faithful adaptation that could win over new fans as well as please the existing fans. "Love Com" is the rare case where the film is neither considered a "fan service" or "fan disservice", at least when I viewed it...Speaking of the cliche nature of the film, the film starts out promising enough, but then soon drivels into absurdity. For a film that harps so much on the height difference of its protagonists, it soon drops all that in favor for your standard trivial "boy and girl don't like each other at first, but then slowly begin to fall for one another" plot...This is a quirky film, and you will probably have to be in the right mood to watch it. Not a film I would recommend to newcomers, (just stick to reading the manga first, then watch) but it's a film that should please some fans, but I imagine not all. Not entirely bad, "Love Com" does what it needs to do, and that is provide the laughs, which is one thing it does right.
