Movie Reviews

Light, clever, semi-slapstick
Jim Krupnik | Watchung, NJ United States | 01/21/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Typical of Gaidays' work, this film delivers pure, lighthearted fun. Even the bad guys get the laughs and the viewers sympathy (pity?). The script is loaded with good one liners, and even the ones that refer to Soviet era life situations are well understood by most westerners. The acting is easy and well done. Even the subtitles are pretty fine. It's more like slapstick with a plot, but if you really hate that type of comedy, stay away from Leonids' films. On the other hand, if this type of film appeals to you, you are in for a treat."
Simply Classic!

"This movie is just so great. It's witty, funny, clever, and full of classic characters. Even my husband, who doesn't speak any Russian found this one hilariuos. The translation in the subtitles truly showed the movie's meaning. Although, it is hard to translate a truly Georgian Accent!"
Warm and wonderful
A. Grossman | Florence, Oregon USA | 09/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A warm and sunny Russian film by the very unknown (in the west)Leonid Gaidai, possibly Russia's greatest director of comedy. Very funny situations throughout and villains so comical you almost root for them. One of many Soviet non-propaganda films that should be better known in the west. Get it and laugh."
It is a Russian all time Classic
Jakey D | Central New Jersey | 10/08/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Just like Abott and Castello or The Three Stooges, the Shurick movies became a Russian classic. This one is of course is one of the top ones. I have watched this movie when I was about 8 years old back in Russia and still enjoy the style and acting today. The humor and the genre is phenominal. I highly recommend it to any movie viewer who enjoys something different, but yet great. What a wonderful timeless film."
