Dujardin's blithe, glib, ignorant arrogance propels him from one massive faux pas into another as he somehow manages to stay alive and maybe even fulfill his mission, this time tracking a microfilm that compromises the State and necessitates stopping a Cold War Nazi blackmailer.
The look of the film perfectly captures the style and tone of 60's movies, with great vintage film colors and tints, upgraded a touch from OSS's last outing which was set twelve years earlier in Cairo of the 50s.
For fans of 60's spy films, here's more absurd fun and offensive humor that ranges from Rio's sunny beaches, through luxuriant Amazonian forests, down into the depths of secret grottos and up to the top of the outstretched arms of the gigantic Christ the Redeemer statue. It's a twisted visual metaphor that works as a fitting finale.
Wherever danger lurks, whatever the inappropriate remark, you can count on Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath to be there -- and blithely make things worse.
As with 2006's uproarious OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies, this sequel also was adapted from the OSS 117 novels by Jean Bruce. Dujardin's Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath reads like an early "007" on acid. That he resembles Sean Connery's James Bond (circa Dr. No) while poking fun at Gallic arrogance lends parodic thrills and caustic political satire to his new, South American adventure.
Take note: The bumbling spy who can never seem capable of parallel-parking his flashy convertible, is *not* OSS double-one seven. "Non pas de tout." He's OSS "cent dix-sept"! Mais oui. Amid all the hijinx, Bonisseur de la Bath, who's flitting through Brazil's pristine beaches, scenic roads and tropical rainforests as evening newspaper reporter "Noel Flantier," tries his dogged best to get laid - thus, my title for this review. He possesses neither the dashing charm of Connery's Bond nor the rugged allure of James Coburn's Derek Flint (himself a parody of the debonnaire Bond) in Our Man Flint. Every time "petit Hubert" tries to take a "dip," it's a side-splitting laugh for us, the viewers. And oh, it hurts so good!
From the jump, the little birdies spying on Bonisseur de la Bath (prior to his assignment as Noel Flantier) and a lover in the sack are getting more action.Read more ›
Not that Jean Dujardin's wonderfully smug, xenophobic and heroically unaware reinvention of Jean Bruce's (serious) 50s-60s spy isn't still a wonderfully obnoxious creation - the kind of person who doesn't think Brazil is a dictatorship because the weather is too nice, thinks hippies are people who have sex with horses, Judaism is "a religion that forbids sausages" and who blithely goes into the German embassy to ask for a list of prominent ex-Nazis, he's anti-Semitic, sexist, De Gaullist (there's one wonderfully uncomfortable pause when the subject of French collaborators is raised) and so entrenched in his bourgeois values that he even beats up a Nazi's son for badmouthing his war criminal father.
But while there are some fun moments en route to its North by Northwest inspired climax on Rio's giant statue of Christ the Redeemer, not least an inspired hospital chase where Dujardin and the villain wake up in the same hospital ward, it doesn't quite work enough of the time this time round. Some ideas are better on paper than the screen, such as the opening that takes the notion of the 'expendable' Bond girls to near-Apocalyptic extremes, but unlike the first film it never looks and feels right.Read more ›

This film is SO sixties in its look and feel. Plopping OSS 117 from the 50's into the swinging 60's results in yet another hilarious adventure in the Bond parody genre!Published on August 25, 2013 by Anne Marie Booth
