When a sightseeing Soviet commander runs his submarine aground off the New England coast, the crew's attempts to find a boat to dislodge them almost start World War III! Alan Arkin leads an all-star cast - including Carl Reiner, Eva Marie Saint, Brian Keith and Jonathan Winters - in this riotous, uproarious and side-splitting comedy! Russian Lt. Rozanov (Alan Arkin) and his crew hit the beaches of Massachusetts unaware of the panic they're about to start. Despite the Russians' harmless intentions, the folks in town think a full-scale Soviet invasion has been launched! What's worse, their police chief (Keith) has left his hysterical assistant (Jonathan Winters) in charge... and the one man who knows the truth (Carl Reiner) is only stirring up more chaos!
Giggleworthy in the "Whisky Galore" vein. An unusual American comedy.
- The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming review by CH
If you enjoyed 'Whisky Galore" you'll probably enjoy this. An example of the effects of rumour being passed person to person within a small community, borne on the back of political mis-information. Builds from a conventional domestic scene to a riot of action. A far cry from the usual clamorous style of Hollywood comedies.
