While his overwhelming greed and hawkish business sensibilities have helped to ensure pharmaceutical CEO William Cole (Campbell) a fairly comfortable existence, that doesn't stop the money-minded businessman from traveling to Bravoda with his trophy wife, Jackie (Antoinette Byron), in a bid to diversify his company's holdings. As William heads out to meet with city officials and Jackie gets better acquainted with handsome chauffeur Yegor (Vladimir Kolev), Dr. Ivan Ivanov (Stacy Keach) and his hip-hopping assistant Pavel (Ted Raimi) come close to completing an experiment that may revolutionize organ transplants. When an unfortunate encounter with obsessive hotel maid Tatoya (Tamara Gorski) finds William, Yegor, and Jackie all taken under the care of Dr. Ivanov, a series of transplant surgeries result in both William and Yegor sharing William's body and Jackie's brain being transferred into a break-dancing robot. Now, if William ever has any hope of getting his head back to himself, he and Yegor must use their combined knowledge to hit the streets to find the woman responsible for their deaths.

I admit I was a bit skeptical to this one when I first heard about it. I'm used to Bruce Campbell running around beating up monsters (Evil Dead, Bubbe Ho-Tep, to some degree Maniac Cop), so what the heck was this? Half his brain is replaced with the brain of another person, and they hunt down the guy who did it to them? Sounds lame, even for him...
But man, was I wrong. True, it starts pretty slow. A businessman and his wife travels to Bulgaria of all places, get in trouble with a taxi driver and a gypsy woman and yada yada yada. Who cares.
But then both the men are killed, and half the businessman's brain are replaced with the taxi driver's brain. They really hate each other, but control half the body each. The end result is hillarious, and only Bruce Campbell could have pulled this off. Superb work!
Note that this movie isn't out here in Norway, so get the Region 1 version and change the region code on your dvd-player to Region 1. It's worth it if you are a fan of Bruce Campbell. Trust me.
