Not the best Urusei Yatsura movie

"This movie, "Itsu datte My Darling" in Japanese, was released some years after the "Final Episode" ("Urusei Yatsura Kanketsuhen", movie 5). In watching this movie, you'll have a sense of deja vu; just about every plot element in this movie comes from earlier movies in the series.
Seen by itself in isolation, it is alright; but compared to the others it is a disappointment.
The absolute best Urusei Yatsura movie is #2 ("Beautiful Dreamer"), rightfully considered to be director Oshii Mamoru's masterpiece. #3 ("Remember My Love") is perhaps the most typical (and with an awesome theme) and easiest for non-Japanese to understand. #1 ("Only You") is probably closest in "feel" to both the manga and the TV series. #5 ("Kanketsuhen") is an outstanding finale to the series (but be sure to watch the Inaba-kun story OVA first for necessary background). #4 ("Lum The Forever") is just plain wierd but beautifully done.
Compared to the others #6, "Itsu Datte My Darling", is just a disappointment."
It was like a long episode!

"Ok, first of all I thought personally that this ending movie was not what I hoped it would be. I hoped that Ataru were to kiss Lum and say he loved her. But this was not a good concluding ending to Urusei Yatsura! Though, I did like it a little. Ok, here is the entire unconcluding movie plot: Ok, Ataru at a festival meets a princess that carries a bazooka gun. Lum as you would expect, tries to stop him from going in the princess' UFO. Now she used Ataru to get a love potion for her, because she was in love with a tofu boy. But Lum wanted it to give to Ataru. So the way that the drinker of the potion falls in love is that the drinker falls in love with the first person they see. (A spoof of cupid's arrow huh?) This in my opinion is a movie to watch BEFORE the last episode."
