Matthew Broderick I have seen you in other movies and you was good in it but in this movie you was awful.

Almost painful. Kids I was babysitting pleaded for it to get turned off. I watched it alone later and understood their wisdom.

Live action adaptation of the cartoon is pretty cartoony. Some good use of CG effects wasted on a sub-par film.

Although the cartoon series was silly in its own right, this film adaptation loses a lot of the fun of the series and instead comes across as stupid.

Inspector Gadget is one of the few movies that I just could not finish watching. It was just too stupid, making my head hurt along the way. And it's only a 71 minute film! What has happened to Matthew Broderick? He was Ferris Bueller, now he's a lame rip-off of a lame cartoon series? At least he's been in a couple of things lately to show off his acting skills (Election and You Can Count on Me). After I saw Inspector Gadget, though, I was kind of hoping that someone would put him out of his misery.

Not great, but somewhat resembling the show

Okay, this movie is EXACTLY what I expected. I was a huge fan of the cartoon (and of Get Smart as well) as a young child, and had some hopes for this film. I expected the kid stuff, it is, after all, a Disney movie, but that was outweighed by the thrill of seeing the Inspector himself in live action. The casting was pretty much on target. Matthew Broderick provided a well enough Gadget, however he needed a little more development. He goes from champion of justice to bumbling idiot just a little to quickly. These aspects should have been blended a little more. Rupert Everett played a perfectly diabolical Claw. Dabney Coleman and Cheri Oteri needed way more screen time than they got, as their's were the most enjoyable characters. Michelle Trachtenberg played Penny very well, but her role as...
