Although this is considered to be a TV comedy, it can also be seen as a long movie as it is only three hours long.

After drinking themselves blind on New Year's Eve, a group of friends drive to the airport to send off one of theirs to Leningrad, but they put the wrong guy on the plane. Still drunk and unaware of having traveled, the poor man takes a taxi to his "home address", which happens to be an apartment that is identical to his own Moscow flat. His key opens the door, he goes to sleep, and confusion ensues when the owner returns. This is a great foreign comedy, as much humor remains even if most of the words are lost. I laughed a few times and found the love story very cute. (Last viewed: August 2015)
