Good slapstick type humor and some jokes that I didn't get because I speak very little Russian
I saw this in Russian without subtitles, so I missed most of the dialogue. Luckily about half the humor is purely visual, so I was still entertained. One doesn't need to speak Russian to understand that Ivan the Terrible is confused by the elevator.
In terms of the visual humor it is well done. Most of the humor comes in the form of extended chase sequences with high film speed. The thief is especially funny, although with the mustache he came across looking like an armature porn star at first. I think this was intentional. Also, the footage of the black cat climbing up things and looking flustered is well done and cute.
I recommend this film to those looking for well done slapstick type humor. From laughter by those present who spoke fluent Russian I think that there are probably some fairly good verbal jokes too.
