Storyline

Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale are still spies for the mean little country of Pottsylvania, where, sandwiched between the nations Wrestlemania and Yoursovania, the Cold War is still frigid. Their Fearless Leader hatches a plan to capture a time-reverse micro-chip, using the two spies as high-profile patsies. They clumsily defect to America and try to unravel F.L.'s master plan. But can these dim-witted fools survive a secret assassin, exploding potatoes and the temptations of capitalism? And what of their old foes, "Moosk unt Squoirrel"? Written by Michael "Rabbit" Hutchison <rabhutch@spacestar.net>

Boriscrantz and Natashastern Are Not Dead
17 December 2010 | by randwolfraySee all my reviews

A while back I watched the Brendan Fraser movie "Dudley Do-Right" (1999) and that was a mindless bit of fun, so I had to check out what people were saying about "Boris and Natasha" (1992). I enjoyed this movie, sort of. As other reviewers have said, the narrator was fantastic. He sounded just like the old "Rocky and Bullwinkle" cartoon. I loved the part where he asked people to write in.

I guess what I didn't like about this film was that (to my sensibility anyway) they didn't make the main characters look like the original Boris and Natasha. Sally Kellerman was a good choice for Natasha, but why did they give her a short hairdo? In the cartoon Natasha always had 1940s-style long hair with bangs. And I just couldn't buy Dave Thomas as Boris. I'm not criticizing him as an actor, but they needed someone physically built more like Danny DeVito or Joe Pesci. In fact, Joe Pesci's face and mannerisms would have really worked as well. If you think your kids might enjoy this, there's a brief scene where Boris gets drunk in a strip club. It doesn't really show anything, but that's foreign to the Rocky and Bullwinkle atmosphere. I wish the filmmakers had just made a little more effort to be faithful to the original material.

All in all, though, for what it is, this is an enjoyable movie. Just don't expect too much from it and it may be worth a look.
