Follow Phil Rosenthal, creator of the hit TV series 'Everybody Loves Raymond,' in this incredibly funny true story of the attempt to translate 'Raymond' into a Russian sitcom. A hilarious, warm and intimate journey of one man, considered an expert in his country, who travels to a distant land to help people that don't seem to want his help. Lost in Moscow, lost in his mission, lost in translation, Phil tries to connect to his Russian colleagues but runs into unique characters and situations that conspire to drive him insane. The movie is a true international adventure, a genuine 'fish out of water' comedy that could only exist in real life. Written by
I was married to a miserable, pessimistic, angry, and abusive woman, so watching Debra yell at Ray, whether or not he deserved it, brought back too many unpleasant memories for me to enjoy Everybody Loves Raymond anymore. However, I did recognize its impressive comedic wit and acting. Watching Rosenthal try to work with "Russian Hollywood" to bring this style of comedy to Russian audiences was extremely interesting. I found Rosenthal to be pleasant and charismatic, although not incredibly funny (in this film, I mean); some of the other people featured in this documentary, however, are hilarious especially Rosenthal's parentsone particular scene involving them and Skype had me marveling at how truth really is often stranger and funnier than fiction. All of that being said, this film is more fascinating than funny; and worth watching, but not a must-see.
