Trivia

Almost all of the lead actors from the first film took part in the sequel, with the exception of Georgiy Burkov - Burkov died in 1990, Liya Akhedzhakova refused to appear (In the film it is said that she emigrated to Israel). Olga Naumenko agreed to the filming, but managed to be in only one episode. In the future, the schedule of the actress did not coincide with the director's schedule and further shooting did not take place. The scene with Olga was cut from the final version of the film.

No plot. No dialogue. No taste. No movie.
13 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

This production (I cannot bring myself to call it a movie, because it isn't) pretends to be a sequel to the beloved New Year romantic comedy the Irony of Fate (Ирония Судьбы). In fact, it is nothing more than a shameless attempt to cash in on the huge and well-deserved popularity of the original, which remains one of the favorites of the Russian-language audiences even after more than 30 years. This "sequel" brings together most of the original actors who appeared in the Eldar Ryazanov's masterpiece. As you might well imagine, the original actors are by now in their seventies - which is by no means a bar to being a good actor (just take a pick at any of Jack Lemmon's late movies!), provided that you do not try to play the same role you had 30 years ago. Unfortunately, the movie director Timur Bekmambetov (Тимур Бекмамбетов) completely lacks the ability to capitalize on the strengths of his actors; he is also clueless in the basic principles of scene composition, and is incapable of pulling off the most basic of physical jokes. In addition to that, the script lacks a coherent plot or basic believability. The production quality is also terrible - I've seen some home movies with more professional scene lighting, for example. Altogether, this is an extremely bad movie - avoid it at all costs, even if you have to pay to be let off watching it.
