In the same film, Creator/ScarlettJohansson plays Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, who was Russian in the comics, but is not said to be Russian in the film, and [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent nothing in her performance even hints at it]].

* Parodied in DaveBarry's column "The Columnist's Caper," a spy-movie pastiche in which two Russian officers named [[FamousNamedForeigner Rasputin Smirnov]] and Joyce Brothers Karamazov Popov take turns frowning at each other while talking about how the Americans must be kept from interfering with their EvilPlan. When Smirnov asks, "Shouldn't we be speaking Russian?", Popov says that [[JustAStupidAccent they should at least have accents]]. The rest of their lines have them doing every accent but a Russian one.
