If you only see one French spoof of spy movies this year...

Make it OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies. This spoof of the French novel/movie franchise just made it across the Atlantic, and it's a spot on parody of spy movie conventions mixed with some rather biting political humor. When I think comedy, I don't usually think of the French, but this film made me glad to fork over nine bucks each for tickets. There's a fight scene involving chickens used as projectiles, which is worth the price of admission all by itself. This is a movie for all the people who thought Austin Powers was vulgar garbage.
