Spicing Up Your Marriage: When I Get Home, My Wife Always Pretends to Be Dead

Hi hi, I actually had this post in my mind for ages but I totally forgotten to write about it.

I found out about this movie while I was on my flight back from Hong Kong, yes, THAT long ago. But I found this movie too late, the flight ended just as I was only 30mins away from the end of the film.

But recently, I found it again, and this time round, I managed to complete it this time round.

This movie is 115min long.


I love it. This has got to be my most comedic movie I have ever seen so far, from the get-go.

This movie is based on a Yahoo Answers question about a wife acting dead, but the story is a totally open scenario throughout.

The creativity from the wife is pretty darn amazing, from alien abduction to a getting shot in the head by an arrow. The props she used are pretty darn top-notched.

Even with the pretty intensive comedy, there are still certain serious side stories from the side characters. This movie can be some form of marriage counseling.

The movie is really a nice way to help couples to think about their relationships and also reflect on it, without being overly negative. But if you don’t want to watch the movie in that manner, you can still watch this movie for its ridiculous comedy.

The movie pacing is slow, but the slow pacing made the movie looked very laidback. It is a slice-of-life after all. Character developments are sweet, its pretty well-written, integrated into the story pretty darn nicely.

I love the movie, even though I’m single, but this movies does give marriage a pretty positive picture.


I swear, this movie isn’t a horror film.

Eikura Nana and Yasuda Ken portrays the main couple. It is kinda weird to see Nana and Ken pretty much the same height. The way Nana smiles looks pretty darn cute. Their chemistry is pretty much spot-on, I love this pairing.

Nono Sumika and Otani Ryohei portrays the other troubling couple. They did get their fair share of the limelight.

The rest of the cast did their jobs well, I love everything inside out.


Story: 8/10
Music: 7/10
Cast: 8.5/10

Highly recommended to watch. You don’t have to be married or in a relationship to fully understand the film, this movie might even make you think that being single isn’t that bad.

But seriously, watch this film, it’s seriously underrated.

That’s all for me today, Nozaki is currently paused since life is like a Shinkansen for me so I cannot promise any posts in the coming weeks.

So I will see you guys soon!
