  • Summary: Suzuki (Ando), a meek and indecisive car rental clerk, gets into a life changing car accident with a Japanese gangster. While Suzuki awaits his retribution in the mob's headquarters, comedic fate steps in with an explosion that rips through the building. Nurse Shizuko (Ishida), Suzuki's female counterpart, rescues him from the blast and the two find love running off with the mob's money, while being chased by the only surviving gangster.

  1. A clever, charming, laugh-out-loud-funny road comedy that works in almost every scene.
  2. 80
    Mr. Yaguchi's film is so brazenly cheerful and charmingly engineered that even the sourballs in the cast are sucked in.
  3. 80
    Not to mention the good-when-moody, best-when-raucous art-band soundtrack!
  4. There's plenty to like about Adrenaline Drive, including the appealing, sympathetic performances of its two young stars and the tongue-in-cheek humor that pervades the film.
  5. Reviewed by: Michael Rush

    Brims with youthful exhuberance, it just needs to cut to the quick a little quicker.
  6. A witty and quietly charming road comedy.
  7. 40
    Little more than a cartoon, and not a funny one at that.
