Movie Reviews

Good for Russian speakers and non-Russian speakers alike
William D. Shingleton | United States | 01/14/2004

"This is a classic Russian comedy I saw for the first time when I was in Moscow almost 10 years ago. The DVD doesn't have a lot of special features, but it is in the original Russian and offers both Russian and English subtitles, so anyone can view it. This is just as funny now as it was the first time I saw it and includes a classic scene where Shurik's roomate is trying to cheat on a test. Unlike most Russian humor, you don't need to be from Moscow to enjoy it."
Funny, funny, funny.

"This is a hilarious movie - and will have you clutching your sides with laughter. Three short vignettes about "Shurik" - the hero from Kavskaja Plenitsa. My personal favourite is the one where he prepares for the exam. Very funny indeed!And of course Nikulin has the funniest face yet seen in moviedom.I have this movie on VHS in Russian only - so no comments on the quality of the DVD. Do you need to buy this movie? "Nada Fedya, Nada"!"
Great comedy whole family will enjoy

"Just want to add to the previous review that the technical qualities of this DVD are quite good, especially given the age of the movie (made in the 60's). Images are well restored. Colors and sharpness are good. Dolby 5.1 sound is great. This is a very good news because the music score is a nice part of the movie. This dvd is worth the money given the excellent rewatch value. Much better quality then a cheap/boutleg VHS tape you might have bought on Brighton beach in the past. Well designed animated menu and interesting bonus materials: interviews, a short movie about Nikulin (clown and comedy actor, very well known in Russia), filmographies."

"My parents have an old, shady version of this movie, and I've watched it many times. It's funny and enjoyable. My favorite sketch is the middle one, about the exam. It's just too cute and silly!! :)"
