A somewhat washed-up movie star, Bob Harris (Bill Murray) travels to Tokyo to film an ad for whiskey. He finds the trip unfulfilling until he forges an unlikely bond with a younger, similarly disenchanted newlywed named Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson).
Bob: Can you keep a secret? I'm trying to organize a prison break. I'm looking for, like, an accomplice. We have to first get out of this bar, then the hotel, then the city, and then the country. Are you in or you out? Charlotte: I'm in. I'll go pack my stuff. Bob: I hope that you've had enough to drink. It's going to take courage.
