Funny AND Heartwarming
10 March 2004 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I saw an advanced screening of A Foreign Affair and I thought it was perfect. A refreshing film that's not only funny but also sweet. wonderful performances by Tim Blake Nelson, and David Arquette. They play two brothers looking for someone to take care of them after their doting mother passes away. After seeing an ad for A Foreign Affair party tours they decide that going to Russia to find themselves a wife is the best way to get a replacement. They're not looking for love, they're looking for a wife, but what follows is funny, touches your heart and lifts your spirits. A thoroughly enjoyable movie. They filmed this movie on location in Russia and it features genuine clients from an actual tour party. If you liked Lost in Translation then you'll love this film. It's original and definitely entertaining.
