Overview

40-Year-Old Virgin star Steve Carell steps into the telephonic shoes of television's most beloved bumbling detective in this big-screen adaptation of the hit 1960s-era comedy series created by Mel Brooks. The evil geniuses at KAOS have hatched a diabolical plot to dominate every living man, woman, and child on the planet, and their plot gets under way as they attack the headquarters of the U.S. spy agency Control. As a result of the attack, the identity of every agent working for Control has been compromised. Realizing that the only way to thwart KAOS' evil plan is to promote eager but inexperienced Control analyst Maxwell Smart Carell to the rank of special agent, the Chief Alan Arkin reluctantly teams Smart with Agent 99 Anne Hathaway -- a veteran super-spy whose beauty is only surpassed by her lethality. With no real field experience to speak of and nothing but sheer enthusiasm and a handful of fancy spy gadgets to help him accomplish his deadly mission, Maxwell Smart his new partner, Agent 99, will be forced to faces malevolent KAOS head Siegfried Terence Stamp and his loyal army of minions in a decisive fight that will determine the fate of the free world. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, David Koechner, Terry Crews, and Ken Davitian co-star.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
This big-screen version of Get Smart succeeds because, unlike the main character, newly minted field spy Maxwell Smart Steve Carell, every person who worked on the movie performed their job competently. This is not minor praise. Director Peter Segal makes both the comedy and the action pop with energy. He knows when to cut to a joke, and when to trust his actors to get the point home with their interactions. He's as comfortable staging a humorous ballroom dance competition as he is constructing a kinetic beat down administered by Agent 99 Anne Hathaway to a couple of bad guys. The action scenes, particularly the hand-to-hand fight scenes, aren't treated as comedy, but as tense and exciting set pieces. Dean Semler's cinematography balances the brightness required for comedy and the darkness needed to add tension with unobtrusive professionalism. Quite simply this is the most enjoyable American action comedy since Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Every one of the actors understands that playing it "straight" will get a bigger laugh than if they emphasized the comedy, and that allows Alan Arkin, Steve Carell, Dwayne Johnson, and Anne Hathaway to play off each other like real people and not comedy constructs. Even the throwaway bits of silliness usually have a second and sometimes a third layer to them, evidence that the screenwriters actually thought through the material instead of just bashing together a bunch of outrageous moments. Get Smart isn't exactly memorable, and it isn't particularly deep -- although it has a fair amount of fun tweaking the processes of gathering and analyzing intelligence in the age of George W. Bush, spoofed to perfection in the movie by James Caan. Would you believe that an action comedy about an inept spy could be a serious Oscar contender? Would you believe a trend-setting summer blockbuster? Would you believe a thoroughly enjoyable piece of Hollywood product? Well actually, that last one is right.

    Get Smart dvd movie

    I enjoyed this movie as I remember well the "old" Get Smart series on television. Someone who was not familiar with the "old" would not understand some of the scenes completely, but would still enjoy the movie.

    My sister Suki told me that of all the movies she had seen this year that GET SMART was one of them.

    So Much More Than What I Expected

    I like Steve Carell, but his comedies are usually the exact same with different supporting actors and a different plot. I skipped seeing this in theatres and I strongly regret it. This movie took me completely off-guard. Needless to say, I love it. It is hysterical. The Chuck Norris joke they throw in there has been stuck in my head since I saw it. I strongly recommend this, even if it means buying it. I usually don't buy movies, but this one I'll definitely be watching again pretty soon.
