Funniest Polish Movie Ever
26 November 2003 | by (Phoenix, Arizona) – See all my reviews

Actually, the first three or four times I saw this movie, it was in Polish (my wife's native tongue) without English subtitles. She tried to translate the jokes for me, for a while, but soon gave up because she was laughing too much. Now that I have seen the movie subtitled, I laugh as hard as she does.
