Fun movie

on 4/26/2012

If you liked the TV series, then you should love the movie. It's done in the same vein as the movie and it doesn't detract from it. Steve Carell is a very good Maxwell Smart. He's funny, without being too stupid. Anne Hathaway plays his partner very well. The stunts and things in this movie were pretty well done. Just funny enough without going into the absurd. The ending was pretty good I'll have to admit. It was not something that I was looking for at all and I felt provided a satisfactory conclusion. Overall it's a nice escape for a few hours.

Funny remake of the series

by Gamer151 on 11/13/2012

The movie has a whole lot of jokes and seems like a classic Mel Brooks production. The actors chosen is great and they all fit well into their respective parts. The surprise cameos are also a nice welcome. The script and story moves briskly with a lot happening in different areas to keep you interested. Of the bonus features I think the gag reel is my favorite. If you love comedies I'd recommend watching this.

Review Get Smart becomes the latest in a long line of TV series to get a big-screen treatment. While we have come to expect recycled refuse from most of these (Bewitched perhaps occupying the nadir), Get Smart manages to rise above the continuum of regurgitation by walking a tightrope that allows it to appeal to those who have fond memories of the late-1960s spy spoof and those who don't know Don Adams from John Adams. Get Smart is delightfully silly and at times very funny. The characters are likeable and feel connected to their TV counterparts. And, although Mel Brooks and Buck Henry (creators of the original) are not directly involved, the filmmakers have crafted something that both men would likely agree is in the spirit of what they shepherded to the small screen...If Get Smart faces a hurdle, it could be that viewers are tiring of these TV-to-movie transitions (perhaps because so many have been so bad), and Get Smart lacks the cachet of some of its contemporaries. It is not widely available on DVD (only as an entire series box set from Time Life) and thus has not re-entered the popular culture of the 2000s the way so many older TV shows have. This is one instance, however, when a TV series-based movie rewards nostalgia without demanding it. Get Smart is funny enough in its own right to attract younger viewers while paying homage to its 40-year old predecessor.

Review The closing credits of "Get Smart" mention Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, creators of the original TV series, as "consultants." Their advice must have been: "If it works, don't fix it." There have been countless comic spoofs of the genre founded by James Bond, but "Get Smart" (both on TV and now in a movie) is one of the best. It's funny, exciting, preposterous, great to look at, and made with the same level of technical expertise we'd expect from a new Bond movie itself. And all of that is very nice, but nicer still is the perfect pitch of the casting...Steve Carell makes an infectious Maxwell Smart, the bumbling but ambitious and unreasonably self-confident agent for CONTROL, a secret U.S. agency in rivalry with the CIA. His job is to decipher overheard conversations involving agents of KAOS, its Russian counterpart. At this he is excellent: What does it mean that KAOS agents discuss muffins? That they have a high level of anxiety, of course, because muffins are a comfort food. Brilliant, but he misses the significance of the bakery they're also discussing -- a cookery for high-level uranium...One of the gifts of Steve Carell is to deliver punchlines in the middle of punches and allow both to seem real enough at least within the context of the movie. James Bond could do that, too. And in a summer with no new Bond picture, will I be considered a heretic by saying "Get Smart" will do just about as well?

Connie Ogle, Miami Herald ...amusing and briskly paced, busy with an engaging mix of supporting actors.
Larry King A stunt a minute, a laugh a minute. Get Smart is a summer smash.
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly The unexpected star is Hathaway, looking cool as a runway model...and displaying great comic timing.
Mark Bell, Film Threat The movie is fun, and hilarious, because of its child-like whimsy.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times Funny and exciting.
