A long-separated husband (Koji Yakusho) and wife (Mieko Harada) reunite with a clash on New Years Eve. Meanwhile, the hotel bellboy (Shingo Katori) has given up on his dream of becoming a singer and decided to return home when he meets an old friedn and current flight attendant (Kumiko Asou). Meanwhile, the former mistress (Takako Matsu) of a Japanese Diet member (Koichi Sato) holes up as a maid in the hotel to avoid the eyes of the public after the scandal breaks . . . meanwhile the Diet Member who is trying to evade the pending news that he's involved with the mob also sneaks into the hotel where he meets a call girl (Ryoko Shinohara). Featuring an all-star cast, a proven director, and some of the most hilarious situation comedy you've seen in years, "The Uchoten Hotel" is not to be missed. Includes English subtitles.

      The Uchoten Hotel (English Subtitles) 5

      The movie has multiple story lines that will eventually connect as the movie moves along. Just sit back and enjoy the ride. The parts, for me, that steals the movie are the duck scenes and the bellboy trying to make-up to his girlfriend for wearing her underwear. Not to mention a Hotel Manager misunderstanding the word "stag(e) manager" when meeting his ex-wife. All in all there are a lot of scenes in this movie that really do not need translation. A great movie to watch over and over again.

      New Year's Eve Mayhem!! 5

      This movie follows the lives of a group of people who work at a hotel on New Year's Eve. Things turn chaotic as it gets closer to midnight and each of the employees have to struggle with the hotel's and their own problems. I thought it was a very funny movie. I especially liked the way the story was told as there was a LOT going on. The director and cast did a great job. With some nifty camera work, some of the scenes lasted over 4 minutes without cutting, which I thought was very impressive.
