YMMV: Gung Ho
  • Alternativecharacter Interpretation: Depending on how you look at it the Japanese managers were stubborn jerks who mistreated their American workers with unrealistic expectations or the Japanese managers were Innocently Insensitive to American cultural norms and were simply tough but fair in their pursuit of getting more from the American workers while the American workers themselves were lazy, uncooperative and ungrateful to their new employers.
  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: Buster (the George Wendt character). He loses some sympathy points when he knocks down the one Japanese player during the baseball game, and loses even more later on when he harasses Umeki Kazihiro - Oishi's wife - at the grocery store following his demotion to janitor when Umeki herself had not personally wronged him.
