Jean Dujardin is a great actor.
JMC
I can appreciate that sort of humor in the first movie because it was done in the "right" way, but this is just tasteless and more of the same.
Sienna Wood
The movie is funny and very relaxing.

A pitch perfect parody of early spy films, "Lost in Rio" takes the french spy Hubert Bonisseur de La Bath to the beautiful country of Brazil for purposely unbelievable adventures involving hippies, Nazis, and "Chinamen". Using old school camera techniques, editing, and set design this film nails the aesthetics of 1960's era spy films and also manages to bring a few social issues from the time period, if only to make fun of them.

The character de La Bath, in the hands of Jean Dujardin, is light and charming even when he says things that are racist or sexist, something he does with such frequency and an unassuming nature that you wonder if it isn't that he looks down on people for what he perceives as there "natural" weaknesses, it's just the only way he can explain what is happening. An example of this is when his partner, female Mossad agent Dolorès Koulechov does not laugh at his joke, he writes it off to her Jewish sense of humor.

In this sense de La Bath reminds me of a french Archer, the television spy cartoon character with which he seems to not only share occupation (spy) but also many personality traits (arrogance, promiscuity, a strange sense of humor). Similarly, and despite their seemingly best efforts to the contrary, both characters always end up doing the right thing and come out unscathed.

In summary: This movie is not to be taken seriously and takes a certain type of humor but if that is understood before hand it can be thoroughly enjoyed, if only "for the ride."

OSS117 Lost in Rio is really very funny. Jean Dujardin is a great actor. It's a French movie, so it may be useful to speak/understand French as the subtitles are not that great.

Great movie and the books are great too. I like hearing the actors in their original voices and it helps with language learning. Why not have fun while learning? Jean duJardin is amazing through and through. Storyline is as would be expected, crude humor. So you need a sense of humor to enjoy this sense of humor. Absolutely no disappointments here. How French are you meme applies.

I really enjoyed these movies, but I liked OSS 117: Cairo, Nest Of Spies, better. But both are well worth renting.

While I dislike Jean Dujardin as a human being, I can't deny his acting chops. As a spoof of the famed 007 and the spy genre in general, Dujardin and the director both nail the feeling, tone, and somewhat slapdash pacing of classic spy films. Some of the comedy fell flat for me, but overall I found this to be a rewarding viewing experience.

Fun film. Lots of tongue in cheek humor. Jean Du Jardin is a very talented actor. Looking forward to more of his films.
