Great Political Satire!

Some of the finest comics ever team up for "The Russians are Coming, The Russians are Coming". Alan Arkin leads the cast with Jonathon Winters and Donald Sutherland right behind him. This should be considered one of the comic films to ever come out. It has a wonderful cast and script. You won't be disappointed with this one! Side note: As of 7/12/14 there is only one copy of this great DVD.

The Cold War becomes fuel for slapstick in this brilliant satire of jingoism, xenophobia and paranoia. A Russian sub runs aground off the New England coast; when the crew members sneak into town to "casually" rent a boat, panic ensues. Alan Arkin is delightful as the suave Russian commander, and John Phillip Law plays a dreamboat young Russian who romances the local girl. Great fun, with a thoughtful message.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

this is a good quality situational comedy/drama. I just didn't like it as well as others from that period

My gracious! I had forgotten how hilarious this is. The rise and fall of the action here is perfect, and may supplant my love for "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World!", given the latter hasn't quite enough to sustain itself to the very last frame the way this film does. Sometimes it's better to shorten the material to fit in fewer jokes.
