Three PlusTwo = Ten Bright Stars
18 January 2009 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

Three guys, three best friends, the veterinarian, the diplomat, and the scientist (Doctor in Physics and Math) decided to spend their vacation on the deserted sea coast, away from civilization, like the savages - sleeping in the car, cooking on open fire, no shaving, no smoking or drinking, and NO girls. Their paradise came to the abrupt end when two young, pretty and self-assured girls, the blonde who is a young movie actress and the brunette, a tamer of the tigers and lions, show up and declared their rights to the beautiful spot stating that they have spent their vacations for five years there and as the proof they dig out the empty Champagne bottle with the note inside. Neither party wants to give up the territory, thus they decided to make each other lives miserable. The war of wills and wits has begun.

As you have guessed already, it would lead to funny misunderstandings, mistaken assumptions, and finally to falling in love and possibility of living happily ever after. It does not sound like something extra-ordinary in writing, just another chick flick romantic comedy only set back in 1962 during the short period of "thawing" in the USSR. But this little comedy has became a cult and otherwise favorite during the first year upon release when 35 million people saw it and fell in love with it, and it has been one of the favorite Russian comedies since. Three guys and two girls are truly likable funny characters, especially three guys and their humorous but warm making fun of each other, their jokes, and witty exchanges that are still funny after all these years. The proof? Earlier this evening, my husband and I re-watched the comedy in the company of our friends. Even though, we know the plot by heart, and were prepared for our favorite scenes, we laughed so hard and so happily just like we did when we saw the film in our childhood many - many years ago. My husband said that he had not laughed so much for long long time. You may say that this is mostly the sentimental feeling of returning back to when and where we were young and happy. Well, I have re-watched many films from my youth that used to be favorites but as the time passed, they lost some of their appeal. Three Plus Two is different - it seems even better - brighter, sunnier, funnier, sweeter with every re-watching. If that's not the sign of movie magic, I don't know which one is.
