This classic from 1973 is considered one of the best comedy, till date. Keep an extra pair of pants, and someone to look after you in case you almost die from laughing.

This is about a pesky crook and his apartment manager, and how they travel back in the time of the great Ivan the Terrible and switch places with him. The apartment manager is a coward and sheepish, while his mate, the crook...is a clever crook. They team up to make their lives a bit easier in the shoes of Ivan the Terrible. The crook wants to cash on the royal goods, and the apartment manager goes with the flow. Meanwhile, the royal Ivan he Terrible is having an absolutely depressing time in then-modern Moscow.

Oh, all this happened because the crook's neighbor, who is a scientist, creates a time machine. The movie highlights a lot about human nature while staying true to its comedic roots. It also brings out the long-lost traditions of royalties and showcases a lot of traditions and culture. Going back in time was a fantastic excuse for showcasing some things that were bound to be lost.

It is an incredible film about science, trickery, politics, madmen and so much more. Also, there is a cat. I won't spoil anything about that.

There is a lot to learn from the movie. Showing it to growing kids won't only give them a good laugh, but will also teach them a lot about culture, and morals. Adults can use those lessons, too.
