Go Russia! ;)
20 June 2004 | by needsamuseSee all my reviews

I really liked this movie and will buy it for sure when it comes out on DVD. It was funny, touching, and then funny again all throughout the film. The performances were great, there were so many great lines and I LOVED the ending!!

It is just too bad that this fully Canadian made film had such poor publicity (a few commercials during the hockey games) and poor distribution in Canada. What is wrong with this country? We seem to only want to celebrate our talent that has made it in the USA - and totally ignore the great talent we have working up here. It is a total shame, and doesn't make things look hopeful for the mounds of aspiring actors, directors and writers that want to live and work in the industry up here.

This movie was great - and more enjoyable than a lot of the big budget Hollywood hype I've seen lately. I really really hope it finds a following on Video and DVD when it eventually gets released to this market.
