EXPORTING RAYMOND (Phil Rosenthal, 2011)

Rosenthal travels to Moscow to help the Russians turn Everybody Loves Raymond into Everybody Loves Kostya. In presenting his experience he makes two assumptions: that Raymond is some sort of miracle of screen comedy, and that American superiority is a self-evident fact.

It's more than a little disturbing to have MIFF endorse this kind of semi-blind xenophobia.
