Rating: 3.5/5 -- In a year where even Ghost Rider gets a sequel, Get Smart makes you actually want one. Full Review

There are a few laughs, but nothing memorable, no biting satire and no clever wit. Most disappointing, there's no real chemistry between the bumbling Maxwell Smart and beautiful Agent 99. A fizzle where there be sizzle. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- There are a few funny moments, mostly courtesy of Carell's natural charm and some surprising cameos that inject some much-needed life into an otherwise generic film. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- We sit back and wait for the laughs. Which come pretty slow and infrequent, though Carell does his straight-faced best to act out the A-Z of Hilarious. Full Review

There's a bit of tonal problem with this bundled blockbuster. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- From this distance it looks like a rejected chapter from the Naked Gun franchise, and infinitely more wooden. Full Review

Steve Carell is reliably funny as an accident-prone special agent in Get Smart, but he's funny on his own here - without a good script or a zingy supporting cast to help him along. Full Review

Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 06/19/2008

"[T]he film is breezily entertaining....Carell does a fine, goofy job."

New York Times - 06/20/2008

"[W]ith funny jokes, brand actors and enough special effects to give you some bang for your summertime buck....The most crucial of those recognizable faces in the GET SMART movie belongs to the comic actor Steve Carell, putting an amusing deadpan spin on the blundering CONTROL spy Maxwell Smart..."

Entertainment Weekly - 07/11/2008

"[D]irected by Peter Segal with a refreshing lack of look-how-meta-clever-we-are egotism, the movie references enough of the original touchstones to please those who lived it the first time." -- Grade: B+

Empire - 09/01/2008

3 stars out of 5 -- "In many ways, Maxwell Smart is the role Carell was born to play. The 007 wannabe exudes the guileless quality of his 40 year-old virgin..."

Empire - 03/01/2009

3 stars out of 5 -- "Steve Carell re-invents the '60s TV show about an unconventional spy in this silly-but-fun movie....Perfectly likable..."

Product Description:

Though it features nostalgic nods to its classic TV inspiration, GET SMART is fun for both devoted fans and those who might mistake the cone of silence for a less-crunchy dessert dish. Steve Carell (THE OFFICE) takes over the role Don Adams originated as Maxwell Smart, a desk-bound analyst at spy agency CONTROL. When the evildoers at KAOS discover the identities of all of CONTROL's agents, it's finally time for Max to shine in the field. Paired with the sexy Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA), the bumbling Max leads a crusade against KAOS with a variety of high-tech gadgets.

Naysayers might have suggested that a movie based on the show GET SMART might have become another Cold War casualty, but the strong cast makes this action-comedy a success. Though the '60s series' Adams can't be replaced, Carell ably steps into his predecessor's phone-bearing shoes. As KAOS kingpin Siegfried, Terence Stamp is just as deliciously evil as he was as SUPERMAN II's General Zod. But Dwayne Johnson (THE GAME PLAN) especially deserves kudos for his comic chops in a supporting turn as Agent 23. The part may be smaller than the lead roles audiences are used to seeing him play, but it's a perfect opportunity for him to display his action and comedic muscles. Behind the scenes, series creators Mel Brooks and Buck Henry serve as creative consultants on the film, and this version of GET SMART shows a loving devotion to its source material.
