In a sitcom spin-off from the movie, we follow the cross-cultural antics of some gruff American auto workers and their new Japanese bosses. Break out the sushi jokes, boys. Gedde (16 Candles) Watanabe returns to his role as the plant boss, and Scott Bakula takes over Michael Keaton's job as liaison between East and West. They're pleasant and so's their show, but the jokes sound a little like they came off an assembly line.
