Consensus: Led by another appealing performance from Jean Dujardin, this sequel offers more absurdly fun action -- and more politically incorrect humor -- for fans of '60s spy films.

Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor

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.

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.

Laugh-out-loud funny.

The tenor, tone and immaculately lampooned art direction often make up for shtick that gradually grows thin in the belly-laugh department.

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.

... when all else fails, [Jean] Dujardin's smug grin and oblivious conviction in his every knee-jerk prejudice makes the character work.

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

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.

Time to retire OSS 117's license to kill before any more innocent people suffer.

Jean Dujardin is as great as he was in the first. It's not as laugh-out-loud hilarious as the first because the humor isn't as surprising. It's… More
