In this heartwarming comedy, two filmmakers (Armen and Raffi), from Los Angeles, go to Armenia to shoot a feature length movie about a third generation American Armenian who goes to Yerevan to adopt a 12 year old. Teaming up with a local impresario (Rubo), the team begins the arduous task of casting for the parts, scouting locations and securing the last leg of the funding. What seems to be a perfect plan becomes a perfect storm of absurd meetings, unexpected discoveries and hysterical events, which come together to sabotage the project. The Minister of Culture, The chief of police, the director of Hyefilm Studios, the oligarch...They all offer to help, and yet all of them have their conditions - changing the plot of the script, adopting it to another period, casting a relative for a part, and ultimately a proposal to turn the simple, touching story into a biopic of an oligarch. The chemistry between the Rubo, Armen and Raffi creates an amazing hilarity, and their journey to realize their dream brings them face to face with some colorful characters, fantastic situations, and beautiful backdrops.

Good and bad things about "Road Trip" : I'm gonna be short and sweet. The film has some good jokes and very few bad ones. One of the better parts is that the film doesn't rely on big names or any star power, which was a great relief for me. However, "Road Trip" is still not a comedy masterpiece like "Cheaper by the Dozen" or "Shaft". It is a very average comedy, but it was very funny and a lot of the jokes work. The plot is a little generic and some parts are just cliched, but I found the film to be very engaging. I recommend this film to all, it's not a comedy masterpiece, but it is definitely entertaining and well made.

This is a slow-paced movie, but what the heck, it's funny. It's the type of movie where you feel like you are watching a play-off game instead of a movie, and it's funny. The jokes aren't very funny, but they are funny. If you're going to be a person who enjoys the early 80s, you should watch this. If you're not that person, you may want to watch something else. This is one of those movies where you should watch it more than once. I was very impressed with this movie. 7/10

I'm not sure why I'm rating this so low. The acting is excellent, but it's not an "A-list" film, so there's no "lots of stars" involved. It's not an award-winning movie either, it's not the "best" film of the year, and it doesn't even stand out as a "must-see" film. It's okay. I'd give it a 6, but I'd rate it a 7 if it were on DVD. It's really worth seeing if you're in the mood for something light-hearted, and just want to have a nice, fun evening. If you're looking for something special, I don't think you're going to get it. If you like to watch something that's different, you might like it.

Hollywood has proved again that it is more than capable of creating a great film with its main focus on the idea that "Life is everything, and if we let it be, we'll get everything." What better way to sum up this great film than with the title of the film, "1 Weeks in Yerevan". Yes, this is a classic movie. The main characters, the creative story and the different situations and events are all so typical, yet so entertaining that I love this film. I even believe that this is one of the best Israeli films ever made. I really don't think that the Israeli film industry can compete with the Hollywood industry in terms of quality. I also think that the Israeli film industry is very underrated and deserves more recognition. This film has everything you could want in a movie. It has humor, it has romance, it has suspense, it has action, and it has everything you could want in a film. If you are a fan of this film, please buy it, because it is just a film that you should see. I know that this is not the type of film that you would want to see with a large group of friends, but if you are at home alone and want to watch a film that you know you will enjoy, this is the film for you.

In the real world, we need a common language for communication. The number one problem with modern communication systems is that no one is talking in one common language. The great majority of communications are using simplified languages (or a mish-mash of different languages), not English or French or whatever. In this film, we see a group of four people trying to use one common language, to try and communicate, and get a letter from a president of Russia. This is a true reflection of modern communication systems, and is a good example of how to do it. I enjoyed this film because it had some real positives and some real negatives. It had some good things about it. First of all, it had some great characters. It was very believable. They were very likable. Second of all, it had some very good comedic moments, and I found that it was very funny. I also liked that it was very fast-paced, and it kept you interested. It also had some great quotes, and it was really funny to see a comedian (Shaun Williamson) quote. I also liked that the language wasn't completely invented, and that some of the characters were speaking Russian. It was interesting to see how different people would speak Russian, and how people would talk about Russian in different ways. Lastly, I found the sound effects to be really great. I liked the way they sounded, because they seemed realistic. The actors did a great job. I thought the music was very good, and I found that the sound effects were great. I thought the dialogue was really good, and I really enjoyed the actors' performances. Overall, I thought it was an entertaining film, and I think that it is a good example of how to make a comedy in modern times. I think that it is a great example of how to make a comedy in modern times. I give this film a 7 out of 10.

Saw it in Venice with Lina Kabaeva, and I must say I am impressed. The movie is too funny to be honest, and it is funny even if it's not always funny. The part when we see a "like" is really funny. This is a movie with so much potential, but unfortunately not realized. A pity, because the acting and script are good. I would like to see more of this kind of comedy.

The movie starts with a very slow story. We get to know that Bibi, in his new apartment, has to fight against a series of errors in his timekeeping, and he starts to lose his control. The plot isn't too bad. It starts out very serious and is not afraid of making jokes. I do believe the only difference between the first and second part is that the first part is more romantic, but the second one is a little bit more entertaining.

I have never had an Indian movie before. I only know a couple of characters from many movies of Indian actors. And I don't like many Indian movies. I like Korean movies more. So I watched "Seven Weeks in Yerevan" without any expectation. I saw only one minute of the movie. And I thought it is a funny comedy, because there is no comedy in that movie. There is only comedy in the story. I think it is a movie that will be watched by more people. It's funny, well-made and charming. And it's a movie for which I think more people will watch it. I can see it again and again. My favorite character is Ek Chitran. I think he is a good man who has good ideas. He has a great job in the bank. He has good ideas and he doesn't need to be reminded about his job. He can do whatever he wants. So he is a good person. And he has a son who he worries a lot about. I think he is a good father, because he doesn't want to lose his job. He doesn't want to be a burden on his son. So he is a good father. His wife is not an option for him. So he has to do his best to make a better life for his son. And that's why he has a good job. He is a good man. My favorite scene is the one where he gives his son a medicine to cure his illness. That's my favorite scene. That's the one that made me think I must watch that movie. And that's the one that made me laugh. And that's why I think it is a good movie. 7/10

A film with an "on" meaning, as a musical. A musical, that is, with musical instruments. Not a great movie, but worth watching once. Not so much an "on" to the musical, though, as the musical itself. As it is, it's not the best movie I've ever seen. But it is a great musical, and, it is about Yerevan, Armenia, and the music. And, Yerevan is a beautiful place to visit, with a nice artistic and scenic feel to it. I would also add, that the cinematography, while sometimes a little flat, is sometimes brilliant. As is the acting, with all of the actors, even in small roles. The stories told, with all of the characters, are not terrible. They are not as funny or charming as in most other musicals, but they are interesting, and are entertaining. If you like musicals, and you like musicals with musicals, you should see this. It is not a masterpiece, but it is not a bad movie either.

A funny and touching movie about the loss of the person you loved, but never got over. I loved how they used the background music and other stuff. It was great to see a couple of actors I've been seeing a lot of lately, Liam Neeson and Scarlett Johansson. I'm going to buy this movie now.

A movie with some strong performances, a bit less of one but more of two. The plot is not quite strong enough for a full length movie, but it still has its own plot, and it's different from most other movies out there. The movie has a lot of humor, not only the ones you see in the previews, but the ones in the movie. It has a bit more of a plot than the average movie, and it was actually quite good for a short movie. There was not much nudity and the film was not over the top, but the plot could have been a bit better. But overall, I thought it was good. Not the best of the year, but a good movie.

I must admit that I really enjoyed this movie. I was thoroughly entertained, and the musical score was great. In fact, I would go as far as saying that the film is a lot better than the trailer might lead you to believe. The film is actually about a lot more than what you might think. It's about cultural identity, loss, identity, nostalgia, and the importance of music and culture. It's about art. It's about life and death. It's about love and life. It's about coming to terms with past events and doing what is best. It's about beauty and pain. It's about friendship and family. It's about being a good person and doing what's right. It's about losing. It's about going on in life. I think it is great that you have a different perspective on the film, because I'm sure that most people who saw it will enjoy it more than you. I thought the acting was great, as well. Most of the actors did a great job in their roles. The performances were done with great technique and passion. The musical score was also great, and I liked it, even if it was not the best part of the film. It wasn't as memorable as the ending of the first film, but it was still very good. I think the two films are very similar, and I think they should be viewed as a whole. I would recommend this film to people who love movies, people who are looking for a good story, and people who want to learn a lot about Armenia.

When you go to see a movie of this type, you're going to be surprised. This is not a comedy. It's not a drama. It's not an action film. It's not an action/drama/comedy. It's not even an action film. It's not even a comedy. The plot is very simple: the lead actor has a video tape of his life in Japan that he wants to show to his girlfriend. The girl is pretty skeptical about the video and he gets a lot of flak from the others around him. The movie progresses as he tries to get the girl to see the tape and help him to get it back. But what I found to be very interesting is the culture differences that are shown between the two cultures. The people in Japan are not very friendly to foreigners, and people in Japan are not very friendly to anyone who comes from the U.S. They are very rude and always have their ways of dealing with people. Even the girl is not friendly to her boyfriend, as he does not speak Japanese and she does not speak English. All in all, the movie was pretty interesting, but it is not a comedy.

I saw this movie on Netflix, and it was a huge letdown for me. I really wanted to like it, but it was just not that funny. The storyline was also a bit cliche, but I still think that it was a good movie. It's not going to blow you away like some people have been saying. But I don't think it will get you to laugh out loud. It is actually quite tense in a lot of parts, and I think that was a good thing. I think that the director did a good job in making it funny and interesting. The comedy aspect is definitely on point. The film definitely has a lot of heart and honesty, which makes it a good film to watch. I think it's definitely worth watching. I give it a 7 out of 10.

After reading some of the reviews I must say that the most overrated movies of the year are the ones that are a remake, a sequel, or an adaptation of a book. The reason I say that is because movies can be more successful if the story is original and/or if it is a very well-written and directed movie. However, in the case of this movie, it was not original, it was a remake of a previous movie and so therefore, it wasn't a very good movie. However, I enjoyed this movie a lot. There were many great scenes and I especially liked the ending. For example, the scene where the two are in the elevator and get a message from the son, and that message ended with a "This movie sucks". I can't help but wonder how the director was able to get this ending. I found that to be very amusing and interesting and the scene where they got to the top of the building and saw the reflection of the whole city of Yerevan in the mirror and a video of the ending of the movie and the words "Yerevan" were on the screen was a great way to end the movie. Overall, I give this movie a 7 out of 10. I would recommend watching this movie, but do not expect a masterpiece. It is a decent movie and it is worth watching, but if you don't have anything to do on a Saturday afternoon and want to laugh at some movies, it is not a bad choice.

The most important aspect of this movie is the director. How to balance the rhythm of comedy with a sincere story. The most significant part of the movie is the storyline. You can not expect a brilliant story, you can expect something a little bit different. In this movie, we saw different elements, but in a good way. The screenplay is nice. The acting is a little bit above average, but still not bad. The movie is a little bit overrated by the critics, and to me that is a good thing. Because if the movie was good, people would be happy. This movie is entertaining, and a very good experience.

The only thing that was good about this movie was its acting. They were just too good. They are not the type of actors you would want to see in a film. The guy in the red shirt and glasses plays a photographer who has to be around 70 years old. The actress in the red shirt who plays a Russian reporter was very good too. The guy who played the waiter and the blonde haired guy who played the Russian officer were both very good. They were so good, that I was thinking that they were the only ones in the whole film. The reason why they were so good was because they were the only actors who were really young. They were real young people and they really looked like teenagers. They were just so young and looked so good. The rest of the actors were not real teenagers. They were actors who looked old enough to be teenagers, but they were still young. They were the ones who should be in the film. But the actors were too young, and they did not do the role of teenagers well. This is one of those films that people just cannot stop saying that they want to see more of. It is a very good film and I am recommending it to anyone who wants to watch it. It is a little bit funny, but it is not one of those funny films that make you laugh out loud. It is also very slow, but it is a very good slow film. The actors are very good and the story is very good. It is very good.

I found this film at the Philadelphia Film Festival in 2012. I was not expecting much, as it was billed as a "real" film. I was very surprised by the amount of positive reviews that were left. This film is not a perfect film. It does have some slow moments and it's slow at parts, but for the most part this film is not one of those that will drag on and on, because the characters have a great time. I also feel that the film could have used a bit more action, but again, it is still a very funny and fun film. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who wants a great laugh. I give this film a 7/10.

The story is simple and believable, the characters are completely believable, the dialogues are clever and the action is gripping. The actors, especially the great actors of Tamer Abdellatif, Ismail Abayov and Khovrat Kazimzhanov do a perfect job in their roles. So the story is all about the characters and the truth of the events, and what happens to them. What I liked about the movie is that it presents a true story in a new way. In the past, we had the usual but harmless, but stereotypical Hollywood anti-war movie. What you see is really what happened. In this movie, it is not the way it happened, but how it happened. It presents the real story in a new way, where you really see the truth and you feel the pain of the characters. It's a brilliant movie. The characters are believable, the dialogues are clever, the action is gripping and the story is complete. It's a great movie and I'm sure that it will win an Oscar for best foreign movie of the year, because it deserves it. I've seen it twice and I'll probably see it again, because I'm very much looking forward to see it again. So, if you are looking for a good movie that is very much worth watching, I recommend it.

You have to love this movie! It's funny, sexy, sexy, sexy, sexy! It's an all star cast with some of the best actors around! The plot is as good as it gets with comedy, romance and thriller. It's a great movie! I recommend it for all ages. I give it a 7 out of 10.

Though not a film I can understand being rated so high in the IMDb rankings, I found the film to be a good effort, and very funny. The acting by the two leads, former model Natalia Vodianova and the gorgeous Italian musician, Enrico Arberi, is also good. The film is about a group of Italian girls, who move to Yerevan and get involved in a "dirty" business. The girls are friends, and while they are in Yerevan, they meet new people, like the famous tennis player, who they have to compete with, in a national tennis tournament. The director of the film, who is a young Italian, is apparently very interested in the Italian music scene, and it is very noticeable that this film is filmed in Italy, at a time when the country was in economic crisis. The film has a good rhythm, and is full of jokes, but it does not have the sophisticated dialogs of more "mainstream" Italian films. It is a good, but not great film, and I would like to see the director's next film.

I was skeptical when I first heard about this movie. I didn't want to see this movie because it was a comedy. I saw the trailer and it looked like a movie I would enjoy but I would be annoyed by it. It turns out it is a real movie, very different and funny. The movie is about a group of friends who go to Yerevan to visit a distant relative. This relative is a famous figure of the town. Their expectations are low because they don't know anything about him. But as they go they have to deal with the expectations they had about him. As they go they have some funny moments and the director does a good job of making it look as if they are going to be watching a great movie. You get to know the characters and it becomes easier to relate to them. You also see that their expectations are a bit unreasonable. But I liked this movie because of the different kind of funny scenes. You know you're going to get a laugh at a certain point and at that point the humor seems to go from funny to more serious. I give it a 7 out of 10.

I have to say, the comedy was just.awesome. The jokes were so funny, and the actors were so funny. It's a fun film, and I think it is a great film. It's a great film to watch, it's definitely one that you won't want to miss. I thought it was very funny and it was a good movie.
