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"?

A completely underrated little comedy.
3 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just can't understand what people find to hate about this movie. Personally, I love it, but even then, everyone I've shown it to at least enjoy it, and mostly really like it.

The bench mark test is the first ten minutes of the film. If you don't laugh during that, (and with as many silly references and witty wordplay you should) you won't during the rest of the film, because the humor stays at that same level.

The comedy is quick, witty, and just as silly as the original Rocky and Bullwinkle show. The plot is complicated and keeps you guessing. And the surprise ending is brilliant.

In all, this is an incredibly underrated little film; if you like the original show you would be in a sorry state not to catch this movie.
