When a Soviet submarine captain comes up for a look at America (off the coast of a small island in Massachusetts) he runs aground. He sends his two English speaking crewmen to procure a boat with enough power to pull them off. The 2 English speakers, along with 7 other Russian sailors, don't exactly blend in and the town is convinced that they are being invaded.

"First viewing I originally added this to the IQ after my parents recommended I check it out, and overall I enjoyed it. The filmmakers clearly had big balls to put out this kind of a movie at the height of the Cold War, and I admire that. The performances are solid & there's some really hilarious moments to be enjoyed. On the other hand there's a romantic subplot that doesn't quite work for me, and the comedy isn't as consistent as it could be (and this is, after all, a comedy). Still, these are"
