From France with Love
The name Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath doesnt quite ring so harmonically as the much brawnier-sounding James Bond. That and his even clunkier French secret agent code name goes with the territory in director Michel Hazanavicius espionage spy parody, OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies. Comic lead Jean Dujardin plays the bumbling Clouseau-esque agent whose doltish cultural ignorance is outmatched only by his oversexed, Austin Powers-like debauchery.
After a fellow agents murder, Bath lands an investigative gig heading a poultry firm in Cairo, all the while pacifying Muslim unrest (and failing miserably) and quelling the die-hard European colonialist arrogance in the Middle East. Hes a well-groomed half-wit but, damn it, Baths your smarmy homme boy. OSS 117 screens today and Thursday at 2 and 6 p.m. at Lake Worth Playhouse (713 Lake Ave., Lake Worth). Tickets cost $5 to $8.
