A fact that not many people are aware of:
11 March 2002 | by (New-Zealand) – See all my reviews

The opening scene was supposed to be: Morgunov appears besides a wall and writes a big "X" (pronounced 'h') on it. He then walks away and Nikulin steps into the frame and adds Y (pronounced 'u'), thus creating the beginning of a famous Russian curse... He then runs away, Vitzin approaches the wall and adds "DOZHESTVENNYI FILM", making it a phrase with a meaning similiar to "motion picture" in English. This scene was censored by the Communist Party officials. The film itself has a tremendously stupid plot, making it even funnier. 8/10
