Trivia

Feró Nagy who played Pro dubbed Andrew Dice Clay in the 1990 movie, The Adventures of Ford Fairlane. Because Feró is a well-known singer and a pop Icon, but neither an actor, nor a voice actor, he did a tremendous job - literally and metaphorically - as Clay voice. So memorably bad only that voice acting made that movie an instant cult classic in Hungary (The Adventures of Ford Fairlane was a big flop every other country in the world). He was a tagline "eszem faszom megáll" he said that when Clay said "unfucking believable". He's got the roll only that line in Argo. Árpa ask him use that much as he can. See more »

awesome, a must see!! we'll hear from this director again!!
21 September 2004 | by (Miami, USA) – See all my reviews

hungary is well known for it's art-house films....argo is different, what makes it so special and good. the script is amazing, especially when you look how many actors are involved as main cast. even though the language is quiet hard it's all on purpose to give the audience a great laugh (does not always work in other movies). argo is set in this beautiful environment of the hungarian countryside and there the rough humor seems to work just fine.

the director was very brave to shoot such a movie in hungary, he took many risks, but i am sure he will be rewarded with big time box office numbers. for sure this film has no deep meaning, but it was about time for the hungarian movie audience to get a great piece of entertainment !

everything in this film fits in, especially the cinematography is beautiful, fast and stylish. the music works great and the actors are stunning, they can even make you laugh without saying any line!!!!!!

i was lucky to see this film on it's first weekend in budapest, i wish it will come to the USA, so people here can be part of this great experience! go see it!!!
