Storyline

Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale are still spies for the mean little country of Pottsylvania, where, sandwiched between the nations Wrestlemania and Yoursovania, the Cold War is still frigid. Their Fearless Leader hatches a plan to capture a time-reverse micro-chip, using the two spies as high-profile patsies. They clumsily defect to America and try to unravel F.L.'s master plan. But can these dim-witted fools survive a secret assassin, exploding potatoes and the temptations of capitalism? And what of their old foes, "Moosk unt Squoirrel"?

Live-action version of the antics of Boris & Natasha from "Rocky & Bullwinkle"
15 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

A live-action version of the adventures of Boris and Natasha from "Rocky & Bullwinkle" this movie was produced just after the fall of communism in Europe. The company that produced it went bankrupt just before it was to be released and so it was relegated to cable TV.

Boris and Natasha are set up by Fearless Leader and given the assignment to locate a professor and his amazing time reversing microchip. As they seek their objective they are unaware that the moment they locate the professor the master spy who is using them as a decoy will kill them. The two nogoodniks have to convince American intelligence that they are defectors, find the professor, avoid getting killed, and, hardest of all, Boris and Natasha have to get used to American values. The narrator is terrific and does give one the feeling that he is right out of the original show. Moose and Squirrel, as Boris calls them, do appear and the entire movie is a fun piece of entertainment.

The movie has begun showing up on DVD in the cheap bins at a number of stores and makes a great addition to any person who can enjoy a movie for just being a fun piece of fluff.
