I never saw the TV show. This might be a good watch for fans of the series, but for me, it was boring and not worth the watch.

Get Smart is one of the movies that I can watch over and over and I never stop laughing throughout the whole thing. The story is about agent Max Smart (Steve Carell) and his partner agent 99 (Anne Hathaway) as they try to stop the evil organization KAOS from starting a nuclear war all over the world. it has a great cast that will keep you laughing throughout the whole thing.

Some good laughs here and there. Carell delivers the best jokes and the whole movie is a decent homage to the t.v. show.

Missed it by, That Much!

Get Smart was a TV show from the 60's. The show was a spoof of all the spy movies and TV shows around that time, and that's pretty much what THIS movie was. Starring Steve Carell as Max Smart and Anne Hathaway as Agent 99. The two are hilarious, but they don't exactly have the best chemistry. I think it's the age difference. I am a big fan of "The Office" and Steve Carell, but Steve seems to be stuck in Michael Scott mode. Max and Michael are very similar characters. But overall, Get Smart was an O.K. movie. Not Great, but at the same time not too bad. And you gotta love that Bill Murray Cameo. Probably the funniest scene in the whole movie! So it's a pretty funny movie. I'm not telling you to go to your nearest Best Buy and get it IMMEDIATELY, but if you see it on TV check it out.

The movie misses greatness by "that much".

The slick new version of the 1960's classic television spy comedy 'Get Smart' is one of the better tv to film adaptions to come along in recent years. It's somewhat faithful to the original show and modernizes the premise without mocking it. You can enjoy it even if you've never seen tv series. Also the best of all - it's funny with many laugh-out-loud jokes and succeeds at being an action thriller, with many engaging stunt/adventure pieces.

Steve Carell,rebounding from 2007's box office dud 'Evan Almighty' and reminding us of the '40-year-old Vigrin' we fell in love with. Carell is a master with awkard characters (he shows us this week after week on 'The Office'), as Maxwell Smart he proves to be a perfect fit for his skills. Or maybe he's just so good that he can make ANY character ...

Pretty Smart, Great Cast

I think this film pretty much got everything right. It could have been a little less silly at times to make room for some character development but as an action-comedy picture, its well-done. Steve Carell makes me laugh every time hes on screen. He could be just standing in one spot and not doing anything yet he never fails to make me laugh. Imagine him actually doing something funny; Id be on the floor rolling with laughter. Anne Hathaway, too, did a really good job because she provided some sort of seriousness and much-needed girl power. It would have been nice to see a female nemesis for Hathaway to fight, though. Im actually surprised by the balance of action and comedy. Some scenes that stood out for me were a combination of both genres: the bathroom in the plane, the dance duel,...
