A more gentle Beat Kitano, with gentle standing for plenty of very dark gags towards the kid. In my case, i loved to see Kitano redoing the usual cliches in this type of movies with his ironic and ambiguous touch. So, it goes without saying this might not click with everyone.

A very funny and 'family friendly' road-trip movie.
