    Some moments were funny, the rest of the movie was slapstick with no plot. 9 years 9 months ago

    Though it has low points where it goes after low-hanging fruit (bodily fluids mostly), Get Smart manages to reach my requirements for what I think is a fun action spy comedy, a subgenre I'm fond of. Steve Carrel doesn't try to do an impression of Don Adams as Maxwell Smart, not even in his line readings of famous catchphrases, but brings his own interpretation, and has good chemistry with Anne Hathaway's Agent 99. He's hapless in terms of experience and physicality, but goes the Jack Ryan route, and is a smart analyst throughout. That's important, because it makes the film viable both in terms of comedy AND espionage thriller. They certainly don't skimp on the stunts and explosions. And if you're a fan of the old TV show, there are lots of nods to it, noticeable but not intrusive. It made me want to revisit the original show, and not in a bad way. I.e., not because it only highlighted how the show was better, but rather because it pushed the right nostalgic buttons. 2 years ago
