Hilarious, often silly French hit is the latest in a franchise that spoofs the James Bond brand, in the spirit of "Get Smart" and the Pink Panther films. The Yank audience is out there, but can it be uncovered?
I don't know about you, but I look to French films for stylish love stories and potent social dramas. I definitely don't look to Gallic movies for slapstick comedy, a genre at which the French are especially bad.
Lost in Rio wins giggles only when rubbing its spy milieu up against sheer randomness, but the sight of Dujardin's self-absorbed mug carving up a rubber crocodile for survivalist sustenance can only do so much.
Spouting enough racist and anti-Semitic platitudes to incite unrest across the planet, this knockoff Bond's sheer delight is sorting out sinister political grossout swipes and brutal historical truths, from all the just plain silly fun.
Bolstering its rejuvenation of the '60s French spy spoof franchise, this sequel to "OSS 117: Cairo Nest of Spies" (2006) walks a fine line of non-politically correct comedy that grabs precarious laughs just before the gags hit the floor.
Less raucous than CAIRO, NEST OF SPIES, this new adventure for the suave but bigoted French super-agent is still extremely good fun, with its amusing script, hilarious characters and astonishingly detailed production design.
Just as before, I found myself grinning sheepishly when I wasn't laughing, though the gags are less plentiful than before. This naughty, silly and wildly non-PC film, looks to me easily the equal of the Clouseau adventures.
