Blabbering of a Fool
花より男子 ファイナル (Hana yori Dango – Final)
After 2 seasons of trials and tribulations, Doumyouji Tsukasa and Makino Tsukushi finally decide to tie the knot, with the man anouncing to the world his plans to marry his fated ‘Saturnian’ after her graduation. Doumyouji Kaede, having finally accepted Makino and her love for her son, hands a family heirloom, ‘The Smile of Venus’, down to Makino, telling her that it has been an important piece of treasure passed down for generations.
However, during their stay at a hotel, a mysterious man clad fully in black steals the treasure from right under their noses (literally)! And so, Doumyouji and Makino’s trip to recover the lost heirloom brings them not just to places, like Las Vegas, Hong Kong, but also closer to each other, once again.
Seriously, sorry to say this, but this is a movie the series can do without. 😛
This movie, in my opinion, is just ‘an excuse’ for the cast to go to the different overseas locations presented. As for the story…way too over-the-top, even when compared to the drama series. They could have just extended the 2nd season by 1 more 1-hour episode to have the world-anticipated wedding between Doumyouji and Tsukushi.
However, there are parts about the movie that are worth watching, like how Rui make his appearance during the wedding, and the ending scene during the credits (maybe…that’s about it…).
Anyway, my rating: 3/5. Did not manage to fail because we get to see Doumyouji and Makino in nice wedding outfits, and the chemistry between them was retained. 🙂
