    It might be tempting to simply dismiss the movie as Cold War propaganda, but Williams' deeply affecting performance (one of his very best) transcends any political agenda the film may or may not have . . . which is probably the point.

    An insufferable vehicle for the great Robin Williams, where he portrays a Russian immigrant who defects from his country during a visit to the United States, and attempts to start a new life with his Hispanic girlfriend and African-American best friend. While Williams is spectacular and the movie itself probably has good intentions, it aims to stuff culture and diversity down the viewer's throat in a pretty insulting, juvenile way, which feels more fake and hollow than genuinely authentic. Most of all, this is just a boring movie where you get what it is trying to say about a half hour into it, but somehow this thing goes on for two hours and leaves one exhausted by the time it is over.

    I don't usually go for these kind of dramas, but Williams is so loveable, and the story so heartwrenching and heartwarming, with some action and comedy thrown in, that I really enjoyed it.

    "I bought my first pair of American shoes, they are from Italy" With my parents being immigrants from the Soviet Union "Moscow on the Hudson" strikes nerve with me. Lead by the always deep Robin Williams, and supporting roles from the Russian Rey and Kramorav. The film was playful in narrative but grief filled in story. The "blue jeans" scene and the whole Store shopping scene were hilariously accurate. Not for everyone, but of this is a subject close to you, than you can't hate it.
