I just have a vague sense of hating it.

A comedy adventure story that reminds us how open and honest communication can break down the walls of fear existing between people and nations.

Audience Reviews for Russkies

It's a good time overall. I especially liked the jetpack scenes and the excessive use of Rube Goldberg devices.
