All this is mighty silly, but there's something to be said for watching a French movie that, for a change, isn't about l'amour, existential angst, or madness.

... when all else fails, [Jean] Dujardin's smug grin and oblivious conviction in his every knee-jerk prejudice makes the character work.
July 1, 2010
The tenor, tone and immaculately lampooned art direction often make up for shtick that gradually grows thin in the belly-laugh department.

Stupid, racist, sexist and yet weirdly lovable, bumbling detective Hubert de la Bath is back in O.S.S. 117: Lost in Rio.

It's generally friendly and enjoyable, but it sags a bit.

Strutting around like a rooster in a thin-lapeled suit, 117 isn't much different from other comic Bond figures, but the movies find a fresh and exceedingly rich vein of comedy in his airy sexism, racism, and colonialism.

The story is lame and the action is flaccid, but as Hubert would be the first to tell you, the French have a word for those who can't take a joke: c'est la vie.

I sort of liked the 2006 film, and I sort of like this one, too. I may like it a little more, because Dujardin grows on you.

A Berretta that is a few shots short of a full clip, Michel Hazanavicius' lightning jabs at the spy super-hero fantasy are disjointed. Too little, too late?

It's larky, snarky fun.

Dujardin has flawless comic timing as the hero who may stumble but -- with the arch of an eyebrow and a flash of a grin -- always rises to the defense of the République.

...a truly funny spy spoof that delivers its comedy goods and pokes fun at everything and anything, especially OSS-117.

The part is tricky, but Jean Dujardin does it well, greeting every woman with a cocky Jean-Paul Belmondo smile, and every foreign disaster with calm. Thank heavens France is here to help!

Director Michel Hazanavicius loves his sublimely naive bigot, and so do we

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?
May 7, 2010
A winning spoof of the earlier 007 films...liberally peppered with funny bon mots and character bits.
Full Review | Original Score: B

A very funny French comedy of a variety that usually doesn't make its way here.
