Storyline

Keiko Nadachi is a substitute weather-girl for Michiko Kawai on J-TV. As a way of signing off, she hikes up her skirt and flashes her underwear at the audience. This move makes her an instant cult TV figure and a celebrity. Then Kaori comes back to work and an all-out war erupts between the two of them, with an old high school flame of Keiko's trapped in the middle. Written by Serdar Yegulalp <syegul@ix.netcom.com>

Strange, but pretty funny
1 December 2002 | by ConniptionSee all my reviews

The Weatherwoman is a strange Japanese cult film that will definitely not be to all tastes, as it comprises a blend of gross-out humour, surrealism, soft porn and wild kung fu-style mysticism.

Not everything is pulled off as well as it could be, but nonetheless this has enough crazy gags thrown at the wall with enough velocity and rapidity that the movie comes off entertainingly. My favourite gag was the way the chairman's daughter at all times had someone carrying at stick of French Bread for her, to signify her Parisian education.
