This is one very enjoyable film from 1971. It is a light hearted romantic comedy and though certainly not unique nor original it has many endearing features.
The settings, the story, the fashion, the music, the cars, the hairstyles, oh I could go on and on, but I am sure you get my drift, this is a real 1970s gem.
This film is roughly 90 minutes but time just flew for me and Lily Ho steals the show for me, she is a great actress, yet had such a short career. She was only in her early 20s when she "retired" from acting, I wish she'd kept going, but that's how it was back in the 1970s.
I don't need to go into too much detail, it isn't too hard to work out how this movie plays out, but I loved it and recommend it to anyone who loves the late 1960s- early 1970s films, culture. It also has a fairly good fight scene at the end, where love conquers all regardless of wealth, who can resist a paint and water fight? This is on my re-watch list for sure.

Summary: We Love Millionaires

A comedy-romance that often borrows from American films. Three department store workers travel to Japan to get rich husbands. They pose as rich girls and meet guys who also pretend to be rich. Comedy mix-ups follow. There is a sub-plot involving jewel thieves.

The comedy reminds me of comedies from the 50's and 60's in the US. Some scenes seem lifted Marilyn Monroe movies and others remind me of Annette Funicello Beach Blanket movies. The movie is watchable and mildly entertaining.
