Hana Yori Dango - the 1995 version is the same story as all the other dramas with a similar title. Girl goes to a rich university and somehow ends up offending the "leader" of the school, Domyouji, and his three friends - the F4. And so she gets mobbed, until Tsukasa and his best friend fall for her.

I didn't expect much of the movie, since it's from 1995 and the manga was still getting published when this came out. So similar to Skip Beat, this ends somewhere in the middle. Also, the movie is finished off in 78 minutes. It's good if you know the drama or manga, but I bet it's a bit strange if you don't know it. Many details are missing - of course, since it's only a movie - but even though I tend to ignore that most of the time, there were some things I couldn't ignore. She seems to have no parents. I mean, she talks about them but they don't add anything to the story, only if she needs them as an excuse. And the bigger problem was: I didn't see her developement with Tsukasa. With Rui and Shizuka everything is fine, I see how their relationship somehow got closer. But I couldn't see why she would like Tsukasa... So that's what I was missing a lot in the movie.

Aside from the awkward acting and the lack of description for people who don't know the story, I personally enjoyed it a lot. I could laugh about Rui, Tsukushi and Tsukasa a lot (mostly because of their acting and clothes.) and I felt like I was taken back to the good old Hana Yori Dango that I love so much. A good story stays good, no matter how many times you watch it. I think, I have to re-watch HanaDan one more time now... ...

I think only fans of Hana Yori Dango will enjoy this. Nonetheless, I still liked the movie for what it is :)

It was all so rushed, I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't really get why Tsukushi ends up with Tsukasa if I didn't know that that's how it's supposed to be. I think the movie is an okay watch if you already know hanadan but confusing if you don't.

And man, Uchida, Tanihara and Fujiki have improved so much over the last twenty years. Their acting here was really awkward

I liked the story in this one more than the one in the shows. However- the playing and the costumes.. I rated the show as average.
