Funny, if heavy handed. Ilf and Petrov have long been described to me as the master of soviet satire, but I can't help but feel that it all seemed a bit over the top. Osip Bender is a great character, no matter if the overall satire didn't quite hit the mark for me. I will say that the race scene where he is driving an old POS and pretends to be leading the race was hilarious
