Leningrad Cowboys is something of a precursor to Borat--lovable schlubs from rural Eurasia go on a roadtrip across America. However, this movie would have benefited from Borat's candid camera format than this film's single joke stretched out for 79 minutes with no real story. The Cowboys, however, are charming, and they're not nearly as bad musicians as the movie pretends they are. If you saw a group of foreigners with a weird shtick passably covering American rock songs at a bar, you'd probably become a fan. I enjoyed the bit about how much beer their manager drinks and where he hides it. And the running gag involving the frozen corpse of their bass player pays off at the end.
