'''''OSS 117: Lost in Rio''''' ('''''OSS 117: Rio ne répond plus''''') is the second of two French films detailing the comic misadventures of Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, aka OSS 117, a bumbling French secret agent in the 1960s. In this installment 117 is sent to Rio to obtain a list of French WWII collaborators from an old Nazi. While there, he meets up with a foxy Israeli spy named Dolores who is determined to capture the Nazi. Both this film and its predecessor, ''Film/OSS117CairoNestOfSpies'' star Jean Dujardin as OSS 117, a character who might be best described as Sean Connery's James Bond, if Bond were both amazingly stupid and kind of racist. Based on a not-at-all satirical series of French spy novels.

* HypocriticalHumor: 117 thinks that all Germans are Nazis, but chastises Dolores for implying that all Nazis were SS. "Don't generalize!"

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Parodied. 117 gets into several gunfights at close range and makes no attempt to dodge or even take cover. In another scene while under a hailstorm of gunfire, he goes back to retrieve a briefcase full of money, then goes back to get his jacket and sunglasses, then pauses a third time as if wondering if he's forgotten anything else.
