French agent OSS 117 (Dujardin) is back, this time on a job in the exotic Rio, to recover some important microfilm in the wrong hands. To his surprise, he is assigned to be aided by gorgeous lieutenant Dolores Koulechav (Monot) who is not amused by an of 117's antics. The two get even closer to finding the important object, but the ride itself isn't without any misadventures, from being chased down by angry Nazis, to hanging out with French hippies at the beach to uncover information, and even more ... I'm surprised to say that I actually enjoyed "OSS 117: Lost in Rio" a bit more than its hilarious predecessor "Cairo, Nest of Spies" which uses the same director, and the same star, but there's just something about this one that's a little more funny and a little more charming. 90% of the jokes are sexist, racist, and/or politically incorrect (the film itself isn't, it's just some of 117's ignorant opinions on the world) but are somehow hilarious, and as a bonus it seems that OSS 117's naive demeanor isn't ruined somehow, all due to Dujardin's always likable demeanor. Most of this film would not have worked in the US, but the French pulled it off-- who knows how. But what makes the film even funnier though, is how well it parodies everything, from James Bond films, 1960's culture, and spy movies, something that its predecessor did well, but not this good. Every second of this film I enjoyed-- I was either laughing or just being entertained, and with a film as silly as this one, that's what you should pretty much be expecting in the first place. All I can say is that "OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies" was funny, but this one, "Lost in Rio" is sidesplitting. At this point, it doesn't even matter which one you watch first. 3.5 stars. Recommended.
