Spies like them!

Like the upcoming "Get Smart," the French movie "OSS 117: Cairo Nest of Spies" (opened Friday) is a tongue-in-cheek comedy about espionage, danger and, in this particular case, poultry. (Don't ask us to explain, go see for yourself.) Here are a few other movies that had fun with intrigue:

1. "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" (1997). Mike Myers' go-go secret agent set a new standard for spy-world mischief.

2. "Casino Royale" (1967). Not the action-packed adventure with Daniel Craig, but the four-decades-old bit of silliness with David Niven, Woody Allen and more.

3. "Spy Hard" (1996). Leslie Nielsen takes espionage to new low levels.

4. "Undercover Brother" (2002). Eddie Griffin and his secret agents come to the rescue.

5. "If Looks Could Kill" (1991). Right after "21 Jump Street," Richard Grieco delved into action comedy as a high schooler mistaken as an international spy.
