Sleepy Heads

1997 R

Set in New York City, this appealingly madcap Japanese comedy turns the stereotype of the hardworking Japanese in America on its head. Featuring amusing sight gags, winning lead performances and over-the-top caricatures, Sleepy Heads tells the tale of young illegal Japanese immigrants happy to be free from Japan's intense work ethic and traditional hierarchies -- and taking full advantage of their new freedom.
