When Animal Hamaguchi was cheering his daughter during the Olympics, I bet she was so embarassed... must have been funny to attend a Sunday lunch with them after the games.

Does anyone know why the Japanese version has such a long title name compared to "Up".

Perhaps because "This is Japan!"...???

Now i get the feeling that Tokyo lost 2016 Olympic bid due to Animal Hamaguchi's presence in Copenhagen.

It is Dec 5 2009 or Dec 5 2010? Because if it is 2009 it is too early, after all the movie was released on May 29 in USA. They should wait for summer 2010 or Christmas 2010...as usual...this is a perfect film for Christmas 2010 or Christmas 2011.

The Blu Ray and the DVD will be available on Nov 10 in USA...before the the japanese theatrical release... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1049413/

And you keep wondering why people download movies...
