Added DiffLines:

*Bilingual Bonus: Many of the characters who speak Russian in this movie actually are Russian actors, so much of the spoken Russian is accurately spoken.
**Also, when Boris, the circus troupe's KGB handler for the trip to the US, is listing off places the circus people aren't allowed to go to in New York, he pronounces Greenwich Village as "Greenwich Ilyich". This is an inside joke for Russian speakers, because the name "Ilyich" was used in the USSR to refer to Vladimir Lenin.

* HarsherInHindsight: Vladimir shrugging off being hit on by a gay man seems like a ''very'' generous depiction of a Russian, given how Russia's incredibly homophobic domestic policies have made the news in more recent years, or gay-bashing caused by Slavic immigrants to the US.
