Lies create miracles.  That’s the theme of Japanese movie April Fools (Blu-ray release 2015-10-14).  There are several stories: a boy who reads the internet, and is led to believe he’s going to be picked up by a spaceship; a girl who is kidnapped by two gangsters who bring her to eat noodles and to a theme park; an old couple who are treated as VIP by everyone; a pregnant woman goes to find the womanizer she slept with, etc.

With so many stories, there are quality differences among them.  At least there are something to like for most people.  The first half of the movie set things up and are moderately comedic.  The second half becomes a tearjerker, and I find parts of it to be heartwarming.  Overall I think this is a competent effort in realizing the lies create miracles concept.
