This is one interesting and entertaining Japanese drama that i would highly recommend to friends. I have been a huge fan of Oda Yuji since watching his drama serial "Tokyo Love Story" in 1991. I have always enjoy watching his drama serials, especially the romantic drama serial "Last Christmas" in 2004.
For this current drama, i find the pairing of Oda Yuji and Ueno Juri refreshing and they show great chemistry in the show despite their huge age difference.The plot is refreshing and it is a home comedy in which Oda Yuji plays a 40-year-old computer design technician Takamura Keita who marries a 20-year-old university student, Ellen (Ueno Juri). The couple fly off to France to visit Ellen's parent's and seek permission for marriage. However Keita bumps into his ex girlfriend from his University days, Hirose Rei (Ohtake Shinobu) who is Ellen's mother!
Still going ahead with the marriage Keita shows an awkwardness towards Rei and if news ever got out that he used to date Ellen's mother, all hell would break loose. Rei adds to the trouble by returning to Tokyo and staying unannounced with the newly weds. As typical of Oda's previous drama outings, this is filled with great little comic moments in amongst the crazy script and wonderful cast.
