    Перевод Рики Джервэйса

    Я смотрю Ночь в Музее. Если вы не знаете, Рики Джервэйс британский актёр. У его есть... интересный юмор. As I watch this film, I'm wondering if this Russian speaker is capturing his humor correctly. Most English speakers probably couldn't recreate his humor, so a translated version must be very hard to do.
    ~43 minutes in. http://kinogo.net/2809-noch-v-muzee-2006.html

    Do you mean the translation of the scene at about 0:43?

    - What's up? Oh, well, take a walk with me and I'll show you mr.what'sup. Come on.
    So would you kindly do me the favor of explaining this?

    - Okay, I'm guessing
    And I'm just spitballing here but looks like that Roman dude got a little cocky and climbed over into the Wild West.
    And the cowboy knows Roman dude wants to take over his territory so he rounded up a posse and put him in the stockade.

    - Что там?

    - О, пойдёмте, я вам покажу, мистер "Что там". Идём.
    Так! Будьте любезны, извольте объяснить мне это!

    - О, ну что ж. Я думаю...и это всего лишь гипотеза, но...этот римский чувак обнаглел и полез на дикий запад,
    ну а ковбой, поняв, что макаронник захапает его территорию, решил его поймать и посадить в колодки.
    Basically the original and the translation are identical, except for "rounding up a posse".
    I think the phrase was sacrificed (as well as the "looks like") for the sake of timing because Russian translations are basically 30-40% more wordy, hence take more time to pronounce so you always have to rip something out to keep up with the original speaker.
    And truth be told, with all due effort, I can't see any special humor here. Is there?

    In english, he speaks in a sort of flustered manner. He pauses in certain ways, and does imitating voices. He just acts so absurdly.

    Well, the Russian dubbing is a little bit unnatural compared with the original voice. But that's supposed to be okay given their respective fees for the movie (I mean the actor and the dubbers)
