The Twelve Chairs | reviewed by: Scott Crick | February 12, 2012
entertainment value
An OK early effort from Mel Brooks, but lacking in a number of areas (namely sound, visuals, pacing, and drama).
genre Comedy | History
synopsis A treasure hunt. An aging ex-nobleman of the Czarist regime has finally adjusted to life under the commisars in Russia. Both he and the local priest find that the family jewels were hidden in a chair, one of a set of twelve. They return separately to Moscow to find the hidden fortune.
