    You know when you think a film requires a second viewing in order to appreciate the plot properly, but you can't be bothered to watch it again? That was this film for me. Therefore I'll hold off from passing judgement on it. 7 years 7 months ago

    I realize that comedy doesn't always translate well, but Soviets must have been pretty hard up for a laugh to make this neo-slapstick mess a national favorite. 9 years ago

    frbrown - I have to agree. In spite of what the anti-Russian comedy mafia (which is almost as annoying as the anti-Bollywood mafia) would have us believe, this was actually a pretty decent flick.

    (Edit: So no one misunderstands, while I really didn't mind the film, the "mafia" comment is extremely tongue in cheek.)
