We usually watch our Russian movies with Japanese subtitles but this one had no subtitles at all - so I was very disappointed to find you haven't any plot summary for this one. You know its got to be a fascinating movie when five people who don't know Russian - and one of whom despises the language - watch it without subtitles, not just once, but three times!

I love this movie, and the guy who plays Shurik is hilarious. Much funnier than Jim Carey. I want to see more of his movies. Too bad he lived on the wrong side of the curtain for so many years. And sadly, like all the best, he died young. He should have tried to be more like Ted Kennedy. And his side-kicks were hilarious as well. A friend told me that they were famous Russian actors in their own right. Just plane fun, light-hearted and simple. Whether you speak Russian or not, it's worth it to have a look at this classic comedy collection. It is a fascinating look into the Russian sense of humor, as it is universally loved in the former Eastern Bloc countries, and if you look at the ratings for US viewers, here in the West as well.

I just watched this movie and it left me speechless.......How in the world this move ever got made? If you know ANYTHING about movie making you'll be stunned....It breaks every single rule there is, and not in the good "Pulp Fiction" way , mind you. I don't get all peeps from Russia who says something about mysterious Russian soul, that only Russian will understand....well, this is nothing more than a BS. I'm Russian myself, well I was born there at least, and let me tell you that there are nothing mysterious about this.....Well, let me get to the point: First of all, the Idiotic Alternative Rock Band Motive p***ed me off....The film opens with a shot of music video for IDEOTIC ALTERNATIVE BAND, fast forward, in the first 30 min. the main hero goes to pawn shop looking for IDEOTIC ALTERNATIVE Band's CD three times, fast forward, the main hero gets shot, scores with butt-ugly girl, gets a phone call from his brother pleading for help, turns him down and instead goes to see IDEOTIC ALTERNATIVE BAND, fast forward, the main hero is on the killing spree, but!!!! all of the sudden, he feels the urge to leave everything behind and just wander upstairs to see......gasp.....the lead singer of IDEOTIC ALTERNATIVE BAND....., fast forward, the main hero is heart broken, he comes to see butt-ugly girl, she turns him down, he leaves....but, not until he gives her a go away present, a CD of IDEOTIC ALTERNATIVE BAND. Do you think this is all...oh, I wish...Every five minutes you're treated to one of the moronic songs from IDEOTIC ALTERNATIVE BAND. I'm not even talking about plot, sub plot, plot points..etc..... This is a MESS!!!! new characters introduced, only never to be heard of again, who is the good guy? who is the bad guy? what is this 'mess' is all about? .......Believe me, the only people who will enjoy it is Émigré with nostalgia for the old land and poor, naive Russians, who doesn't know better. If you expect to get a glimpse of much feared and tallked about Russian mob....well, it's not here . We don't call every gang banger from South Site a mobster, don't we? The real Russian Mob is much more sinister, ruthless and uncompromised....Trust me, I know from personal experience.....Watch this movie, but keep in mind that this is as real as the world in 'The Matrix'. I gave it 5 out of 10, but only for the photography of beautiful Saint Petersburg.
