Movie Info

When their Mom dies, farmboys Jake and Josh realize they are incapable of cooking and cleaning, so decide to go to Russia to buy a wife. Older brother Jake plans the trip with military precision but Josh is like a kid in a candy store. Josh starts spending all their hard-earned cash on drinks, parties and expensive fur coats for his dates, whereas an increasingly frustrated Jake is finding it impossible to explain "two husbands and no sex" to bewildered Russian women. Jake enlists the help of an English journalist, to be his translator; trouble is that Angela is just after a story.

Critic Reviews for A Foreign Affair (2 Brothers & a Bride)

It's Tim Blake Nelson's character who keeps the plot from spinning out of control, because he has a natural and unforced respect for these women that he yanks his brother's chain and keeps their mission on course.

Spirited indie film that could be improved by a gifted editor.

Good piece of work.

Neither funny enough to be a comedy nor serious enough to pass for drama.

May 6, 2004 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This is one case where the director would have been better off pointing his camera at real subjects. The truth, in this case, is almost sure to be stranger than the fiction.

May 6, 2004 | Rating: 3/5

Slight, but charming.

Audience Reviews for A Foreign Affair (2 Brothers & a Bride)

I really, really liked this movie. It is not a laugh out loud kind of comedy, It is a subtle, humorous look at two brothers' quest in finding a wife in another country. It was nicely done, well acted, and very charming. AND I am not a David Arquette fan by ANY stretch of the imagination, but I really liked him in this.
