The Three M's: Madcap Militia Mayhem

by mehaul on Mar 28, 2010

TITLE: The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming GENRE: Big Cast Comedy CAST: Alan Arkin, Carl Reiner, Eva Marie Saint, Brian Kieth, Johnathan Winters, Paul Ford, Ben Blue, John Philip Law, Andrea Dromm, Tessie O'Shea and Theodore Bikel PLOT: A sightseeing Russian Submarine Captain grounds his ship on an American Island's sandbar. He sends an expeditionary force to commandeer a power boat to tug his ship free. As that force makes their way across the island, they give good example that they are not trained for that particular duty. Two speak broken English and so some headway is made. Ultimately the tide frees the sub and a US/Soviet confrontation takes place in the island's harbor, faced off, gun barrel to gun barrel, the tension is imitative of real life detente until.... RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 8 of 10; This is a very funny movie, but it isn't a seamless tale. That is its only drawback, the directors attempt to do segues which stop certain trails of humor in their tracks. When the skits are running, you can appreciate a well written dialogue. The stunts are accomplished well. This is a funny movie (did I say that already?) Even Reiner's toupee is a riot! DVD BONUS: The director's (Jewison) take on why he did such a great job making this film and how he 'showed up' the US military and the Rusian government with its message. ADDED NOTES: Ben Blue, a silent era comic, does a horse chase of a different color, gold.

Rich classic!

by pamela1717 on Apr 9, 2008

Yet again, one of my favorites. I remembered watching this movie as a child and I have never forgotten it. I was ecstatic to find it on video. The subtle humor provided by Reiner, Arkin, and the master, Johathon Winters, can't be missed. I've seen this movie over and over again and it never fails to amuse me. Humor in this film is derived from excellent character development, fantastic performances, and great writing.
