"50 First Kisses" vs. "50 First Dates"

Writer: Florey DM

If the title "50 First Kisses" (also known as "50th First Kiss" or "50 Kaime no Fasuto Kisu") evokes a certain Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore-starring rom-com in your mind, you're not wrong to think of it as the Japanese movie is an adaptation of the 2004 "50 First Dates". Starring Takayuki Yamada and Masami Nagasawa in the lead roles, the Japanese version plays out pretty much the same like its Hollywood counterpart: man falls in love with woman, woman suffers from amnesia, man has to keep making the woman fall in love with him every single day. Here are some interesting similarities and differences between "50 First Kisses" and "50 First Dates":

"50 First Kisses" was originally the title for "50 First Dates" too!

This is Masami Nagasawa and Takayuki Yamada's first time pairing onscreen after 2007's "Say Hello for Me", while Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore partnered up for the 2004 movie after 1998's "The Wedding Singer".

Aside from the upcoming Japanese version, there have also been a 2007 Telugu version, "Sathyabhama", and a 2014 Malayalam version, "Ormayundo Ee Mukham" (pictured above).
