Arkin, in his film bow, is absolutely outstanding as the courtly Russian who kisses a lady's hand even as he draws a gun.
More memorable for its title than for anything else.
Over-rated but still holds up as a moderately amusing sit-com lightweight parody of the cold-war and small-town America.
Inexplicably nominated for Best Picture Oscar, Norman Jewison's situation comedy is mildly amusing, benefiting from a catchy title and allowing Alan Arkin to sport a Russian accent as sailor of a Soviet submarine.
Though the film is more than two hours long, the pace is always quick, thanks to the fine editing done by Williams and future director Ashby.
Sweet and charmingly funny in many places, this is dated but entertaining.
It skewers hawkish reactionism and mob militancy, and its sympathetic portrayal of the beached Russians -- not to mention the panicky buffoonery of the Americans -- probably gave the more rabid Commie-haters conniptions.
A true classic Cold War comedy told with wit, slapstick, and paranoia.
Now terribly quaint (just look at the title!) and not nearly as funny as film historians would lead you to believe.
At the foundation of this movie is a great script.
The cast is great and the scene in which Carl Reiner and vaudeville vet Tessie O'Shea are lashed together is unforgettably funny.
This is enormously funny. It goes to prove that you don't need to treat the Cold War as a reenactment of Red Dawn and its remakes. The entire cast are fabulous and this is a true ensemble comedy.
Over the top send-up of the Cold War has its moments wherein the paranoia of the times makes for some amusement as Russian sailors "invade" Cape Cod. Arkin is the reason to see this, altho Winters, Keith and Ford aid in the effort. A dated piece however.
An intriguing look into the Cold War's true impact on American life, a bewildered Carl Reiner and an equally misplaced Alan Arkin made for a barrel full of laughs.
A cold war comedy that was nominated for best picture in 1966. Tells the story of 9 Russian sailors whose submarine runs a ground on a small Massachusetts resort Island (not unlike the Island in Jaws). They try to get a boat to de-ground their sub, but word gets around that they?re on the Island and it causes a full scale panic. There are a lot of amusing moments here, it wasn?t an all out laugh fest, but still very amusing. Alan Arkin is great as the Russian captain, and Brian Keith is really good as the rational town sheriff. The film depicts the tensions between America and Russia in a humorous way, but in the end it?s just Dr. Strangelove Lite, really Lite. It also could have used about fifteen minutes in trimming, but for the most part it was pretty amusing.
