Join in the adventures of the quirky Yamada family, from the hilarious to the touching, brilliantly presented in a unique, visually striking comic strip style. Takashi Yamada and his wacky wife Matsuko, who has no talent for housework, navigate their way through the ups and downs of work, marriage, and family life with a sharp-tongued grandmother who lives with them, a teenage son who wishes he had cooler parents, and a pesty daughter whose loud voice is unusual for someone so small. Even the family dog has issues. Experience the little victories in life with My Neighbours the Yamadas, featuring the voice talents of comedic stars Jim Belushi and Molly Shannon. The Yamadas are a typical middle class Japanese family in urban Tokyo and this film shows us a variety of episodes of their lives. With tales that range from the humourous to the heartbreaking, we see this family cope with lifes little conflicts, problems and joys in their own way.
