's review

really liked it

Ultimately a satire on the plight of the poor millionaire in Soviet Russia (what's a private citizen to do when only the collectives are allowed to spend their fortunes?) that follows the Captain, Ostap Bender, as he attempts to extract/ extort the million he needs to reach Rio de Janeiro from another who has quietly amassed capital under Communism.
