Here are some tips on using the menu on the DVDs:
First, you must wait for the required messages to play before you
can access the menu. In the main menu, there could be four topics:
  • простотр = Play
  • Эпизоды = Select episodes
  • Субтитры = Subtitles
  • Дополнительно = Extra material
Under subtitles:
  • Ангийский = English
  • Русский = Russian
  • без субтитров = without subtitles

My Review:
This movie is equivalent to a “G” rated American picture. It’s one of the classics of Russian comedy! Notice that you can see either English or Russian subtitles. So, it is a fun way to improve your Russian. (You may need to experiment a little with the menu in order to display the subtitles, because the menu is in Russian.) The movie has been restored, so the image is crystal clear, and the company ships promptly.
