Sergei Kudryavtsev in the book "3500 film reviews" writes about the film:
“ One of the most successful films in the comedy genre about the battle between police and criminals. The combination of the energetic development of the action with comic situations, tricks and gags led to the creation of an unusual genre, which can be called a comic action movie.
