Most signs in the movie are written in Czech, albeit nonsensically and mostly without the proper diacritics. The banner at the secret resistance meeting says "to unite correct"; the warning signs in the factory read "Danger: Steam"; and the scribbles on the newspaper mean "From our readers' letters". The labor decree that Pochenko draws up is only seen for a split second in one shot, but part of it says "further site updates are hereby postponed". See more »

I was apprehensive when this film came on TV, but as there was nothing else on and I was bored I decided to give it a go. It began badly as I found Fran Drescher incredibly annoying, mainly due to her piercing New York accent. Timothy Dalton was fantastic in his role, and made me laugh a number of times. Ian McNeice was also quite good in what was essentially just a rehash of his role in Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls. The script wasn't excellent but did the job. The film did begin to lose momentum as Timothy Dalton became less beast-ly and the film is about half an hour too long, but those are really the only bad points. This film isn't a work of art, but it provides nice escapism for two hours. 6/10.
