Critics reviews

What separates the new OSS 117 movies from their obvious American counterparts, the Austin Powers movies—besides the fact that they’re better directed and less indulgent towards their star—is that where the Austin Powers movies grow out of a sort of fondness or sweetness, the jokes in OSS 117 are all bile. This is not an “affectionate parody.”
