"OSS 117: CAIRO, NEST OF SPIES is a loving spoof of Cold War espionage thrillers, done with a spot-on-recreation of the look, sound and feel of a genuine 1950s Technicolor production."
Los Angeles Times - Mark Olsen (05/09/2009)
"A spy movie spoof with a difference....Breezy, goofy, pastel-colored fun..."
Premiere - Glenn Kenny (05/12/2008)
3 stars out of 5 -- "Jean Dujardin plays the spy with a mix of vacuous suavity and condescension that makes his investigation of the murder of a comrade all the more hilariously inept."
Empire - David Parkinson (12/01/2008)
4 stars out of 5 -- "Its on-target mock-up of the '60s espionage aesthetic should raise chuckles with anyone with a fondness for the the Connery years..."
Total Film - Samuel Wigley (12/01/2008)
"The film does a witty job of replicating the hermetic, overlit shot language of '60s studio movies." -- Grade: B
