From Russia... With Sex and the City
15 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Take Sex and the City, change the main characters to Russian men, add Seinfeldian and Woody Allenesque observations about relationships with the opposite sex, and the quirkiness/instant flashbacks of modern sitcoms like Cougar Town, and you get What Men Talk About. It is a road movie about 4 Moscow men going to a rock concert in Odessa, Ukraine. As they take turns driving the car, they swap stories, observations, fantasies, and just have fun. Much of the movie happens in flashbacks and fantasy sequences. During their conversations, they end up talking about a variety of topics which include women, silverware, women, modern art, and women.

The film is funny and smart enough that it, in this reviewer's eyes, goes beyond the typical Hollywood comedies, and would would not be out of place in an art house movie theater.

If there is one flaw, it is that most/if not all dialogue has one "voice" to it, as it were - that is, by the end of the movie, you will probably not remember who told which story. This is somewhat of a contrast to Sex and the City, where the main character are -perhaps too artificially - made to be quite different from one another. But then again, maybe the approach in What Men Talk About is more realistic as people are more likely to be friends with people who are similar to them.

I am a Russian speaker and saw it in Russian, but other than a couple of jokes regarding the similarity between Russian and Ukrainian languages, and one or two Russian pop culture references, this should translate rather well. Not sure if this will ever be seen by many outside of Russia, but if you get a chance to see this, and you enjoy, say, Woody Allen's films (especially, the "early, funny ones"), then you might just like this one.
