The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai

What to Know

Critics Consensus

This gratuitous film somehow takes the idea of girl power and turns it into a misogynistic raunchfest.

Andrea Gronvall Chicago Reader A flimsy plot about Korean spies leads to a climactic sight gag involving an enhanced version of George W. Bush's forefinger, but it's all window dressing for the main attraction: lots of bouncing T & A. Sep 14, 2007 Full Review Bill Stamets Chicago Sun-Times The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai is far less silly than it thinks it is. The upbeat vibe of super-female power misfires with a gratuitous rape scene. Rated: 1.5/4 Jul 23, 2007 Full Review Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune Conceptually outlandish but routinely executed, this comic exploration of macho, control-freaky power struggles the world over remains skin-deep. Rated: 2/4 Jul 5, 2007 Full Review Andy Klein Los Angeles CityBeat ... a weird hybrid in the vein of the 1974 American sex pic Flesh Gordon, but with a more modern, goosed-up style. Jul 15, 2007 Full Review MaryAnn Johanson Flick Filosopher My head wants to explode at the woman-hating hideousness of this. Jun 22, 2007 Full Review Jason Ferguson Orlando Weekly Recklessly fun, explosively colorful and intensely, abusively edited. Jun 7, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member Perhaps my first 'pinky' film, it was meh, but with a couple of absolute hilarious and memorable scenes. Espeicially with George Bush. Not safe for kids. And some adults ;) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member WTF. Seriously. WTF. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member an amazing funny sexy movie. the actress is gorgeous, while doing a wonderful performance of getting turned on as she learns things after her injury. The spy substory adds great humor and an excuse to finish the tale. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Geniale Pinku Eiga che fa molto molto ridere. Se i film sexy fossero tutti così, li guarderei sempre. Gli italiani cercavano di fare un genere simile con i vari film "pecorecci", finendo per fare film anche peggiori di certi porno. Qui invece si ride davvero, c'è un senso di surreale divertito anarchismo e la regia è decisamente buona. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member A great trashy political absurd romp. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member The kind of work now being shown at film fesitvals: God Bless America! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews
