Russian Doll (2001)

A relationship comedy about an average Joe named Harvey (Hugo Weaving) who spends most of his working day as a Private Detective watching other people be unfaithful to their partner. He never expected to have to deal with such things when he gets home from work. There’s also the small matter of a Russian bride (Natalia Novikova) who needs to get married asap.
The dejected male and bubbly female contrast never step beyond their obvious lines, but they’re well-played for what they are and the script delivers a few legitimate chuckles from time to time.
