  • Summary: In the hilarious Exporting Raymond, a genuine fish-out-of-water comedy that could only exist in real life, Phil travels to Russia to help adapt his beloved sitcom for Russian television. The Russians don't share his tastes. They don't seem to share his sense of humor. But what Phil did discover was a real comedy, filled with unique characters and situations that have to be seen to be believed. An audience award winner at multiple film festivals across the country, Exporting Raymond proves that even if you've never seen "Everybody Loves Raymond", you'll still enjoy this wildly entertaining film.

    RosenĀ­thal serves up a hilarious documentary of his travails developing "The Voroniny," or, as it was known in development, "Everybody Loves Kostya."

    At its most compelling when Rosenthal explores why the crassest entertainment is internationally successful, even in the home of theatrical naturalism.

    I mean no disrespect to Rosenthal when I say I laughed louder during the movie than during any episode of his hit TV show.

    Mildly amusing.

    The real key to the documentary's appeal is its writer-director Phil Rosenthal, creator of the long-running CBS sitcom.

    So long as Exporting Raymond sticks to the headaches of adapting Everybody Loves Raymond into Everybody Loves Kostya, it's a funny and revealing look at the immense chasm between the two cultures.
  7. 30
    Amusing and annoying in the wrong ratio, maybe 30/70.
