Highly recommended. Wonderful nonsense.
17 November 1999 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Highly recommended. Have seen it many times and could watch it many more. Wonderful nonsense from start to finish. The cast is wonderful. Anderman is wonderfully mortified by her crazy family, and Dewhurst and Rose are excellent as the Russians.
