Movie Reviews

Xodite zhrat' pozhalusta!

"As a non-Russian immigrant from the USSR, I have largely lost (unfortunately) appreciation for Soviet movies - nowadays I'll be lucky to put together two words in Russian, which has been almost entirely replaced by English.
One movie that I still watch, however, and still find gut-bustingly funny is Dzhentlemeny Udachi (this film). The acting, the humor and the Soviet propaganda just make it so delightfully hilarious (and to some extent camp), that I can't see myself not watching this film at least once a year.
There are lots of other Soviet comedies that are funny, but most of them have lost their appeal. That's not something I can say about this film which has the best replay value of all Soviet comedies - at least for me."
One of the best soviet era comedies

"First time I saw this movie when it came out in 1971, I was 7 years old then. I remember, I laughed so hard I fell of the chair in movie theater. Now I don't fall of the chair just because I installed seatbelts on my couch.
What makes a soviet era movie so good is that they all have clean humor pretty much rated `G' without need for profanity and cheap jokes of today's Russian flicks trying to imitate worst of American movie culture.
This movie is still one of my favorites along with Diamond Arm and few others.
One of the best comedies of all time

"My wife, a Russian, turned me on to this movie a few years ago. Since then, it's been one of our favorites. It is definitely worth buying if you have any interest in Russia. So many everyday sayings came out of these old soviet comedies. It's also a more honest portrayal of Russia than we (Americans) have been fed since way back into Cold War times.

It's important to note all the work that Image Entertainment has put into this edition. The audio/video quality is excellent as always. The menu page can be in English or Russian. The subtitles are in many languages including English and Russian. The Russian subtitles are very useful for people like me that have studied the language, but are not completely fluent, and also for the children of Russian immigrants.
