The characters from the first film now have children, who have managed to get into the same situation as their parents many years ago. However, this story is not simply a remake of the original movie. Firstly, all of Lukashin's adventures were accidental, whereas here everything is done according to a plan thought up by Pavlik (a friend of Lukashin's). His idea is to help his friend Evgeniy with his loneliness. To this end, he dispatches Lukashin's son Kostya to Petersburg, where he acts in the same manner as his father 30 years ago. In flat 12 he meets Nadejda (who is actually the daughter of Nadejda from the first movie). She has a fiancé called Irakliy, a businessman. Kostantin's task is to lure Iracliy away from the flat, then wait for Nadejda's mother to come; he then makes her call Evgeniy Lukashin. Pavlik persuades Evgeniy to go to St. Petersburg. The plot becomes a story of two fights over a woman: Konstantin vs. Irakliy and Evgeniy vs. Ippolit. Finally Lukashins win the competition, because Irakliy turns out to be too dull for Nadya and Nadejda understands that she was never in love with Ippolit.

Sa fille ainée, Anna, déjà mariée vit à Monte-Carlo. Il lui reste à trouver un bon parti pour sa cadette, Larissa. Plusieurs prétendants se disputent ses faveurs, mais aucun ne présente un réel intérêt en vue d'un mariage. Un ami d'enfance, Vassili Vozhevatov bien que nourrissant les sentiments pour Larissa n'arrive pas à se décider à épouser une jeune fille sans dot. Son rival en amour Moki Knourov, est richissime mais déjà marié. Larissa quant à elle, est éprise d'un grand séducteur Sergueï Paratov, qui acculé à la faillite quitte la ville le temps d'arranger ses affaires comme il dit. Ne le voyant pas réapparaitre, désespérée, la jeune femme accepte la demande en mariage d'un modeste fonctionnaire, Youli Karandychev qui l'aime certes, mais l'agace avec sa petitesse d'esprit. Karandychev triomphant ainsi sur les autres de façon si parfaite tient aussitôt à donner un banquet pour marquer le coup, malgré les protestations de Larissa. Tous se retrouvent devant le pauvre buffet, y compris Paratov qui rentre de son expédition. La fête vire au désastre quand l'heureux fiancé se soule non sans l'aide d'un valet engagé par Paratov qui entre-temps réussit à convaincre Larissa de partir avec lui. Lorsque Karandychev sort pour chercher encore quelques bouteilles, tous s'enfuient pour se retrouver sur le bateau Lastotchka que Paratov vient de céder à Knourov pour des raisons financières. La joie de Larissa est de courte durée - son amoureux, après une nuit passée en sa compagnie, lui avoue être fiancée à une autre. Son désengagement fait reprendre l'espoir à Knourov et Vozhevatov, qui pour se départager la belle jouent à pile ou face. Knourov qui remporte propose à Larissa de lui accorder une pension somptueuse, qui ferait taire toutes les mauvaises langues, pour devenir sa maîtresse. À ce moment Karandychev rattrape le bateau et exige que Larissa reparte avec lui, mais elle trouve encore moins déshonorant d'accepter la proposition de Knouvor. Sur quoi le fiancé éconduit lui lance, «alors, tu n'appartiendras à personne», et la tue d'un coup de pistolet.

The action takes place in Moscow in 1976. Anatoly Yefremovich Novoseltsev, a clumsy single father of two sons, works at a statistical bureau. His boss is a strict unmarried woman, Ludmila Prokofievna Kalugina, nicknamed "our frump" by her subordinates. She has some self-confidence problems, hidden behind her gloomy humorless demeanor and plain old-fashioned look. Novoseltsev’s colleagues consider him as a smart and experienced worker. He dreams about a promotion and a raise that would help him provide for his children, but he is too timid to talk to his boss about it. His former classmate and old friend, Yuri Grigorievich Samokhvalov, recently appointed assistant manager of the institution, suggests appointing Novoseltsev as a head of the light industry department, but Kalugina rejects it believing that Novoseltsev is not good enough for the position. Then, following Samokhvalov's advice, Novoseltsev unwillingly tries to flirt with "the Frump" at a party in Samokhvalov's apartment in order to "get into contact" with her. Feeling extremely uneasy he tries in vain to make conversation with her - talks about random things such as picking berries and mushrooms, reads poetry, shows off his singing and dancing abilities (in a very comical way), but Kalugina gets annoyed and severely criticizes all his attempts to impress her. Eventually Novoseltsev becomes frustrated, flares up and tells Kalugina right in her face that he considers her dry, inhuman and heartless.

The key subplot is the drab uniformity of Brezhnev era public architecture. This is made explicit in a humorous animated prologue, in which architects are overruled by politicians and red tape. This results in the entire planet being polluted with identical, unimaginative multistory apartment buildings of the sort that can, in fact, be found in every city, town, and suburb across the former Soviet Union. These buildings are uniform right down to the door key of each apartment. The rest of the film is live-action.
