Inverted and cut-rate Ninotchka, built around the talents, most particularly the hoarse adenoidal honk, of Fran Drescher, as a New Yawk cosmetologist recruited by mistake to teach the children of the neo-Stalinist tyrant of mythical Slovetzia. She makes her lines her own: "Could I possibly [gesturing to the bearskin on her bed] get a blanket without a head?" Timothy Dalton, Lisa Jakub, Ian McNeice; directed by Ken Kwapis. 1997.
