Get Smart

Saving The World. And Loving It.


Get Smart
Based on the popular TV series from way back, itself a spoof of the James Bond archetype, this film plays very much like a comic Bond movie. Our hapless hero, Agent Smart, is promoted to field work, teamed up with the gorgeous Agent 99, and sent to Russia to confront the villainous Russian agent. The Russians have a plan to nuke the US President during a concert, and its up to the intrepid American agents to stop them.

109 minutes.

Roger Ebert quote iconIt’s funny, exciting, preposterous, great to look at, and made with the same level of technical expertise we’d expect from a new Bond movie itself. And all of that is very nice, but nicer still is the perfect pitch of the casting.

Adam Nayman quote iconIt’d be cute enough to say that Get Smart misses its mark by that much, but in truth, Peter Segal’s update of the boomer-beloved television show comes up lame about halfway through its bloated running time.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconNo knockout, but Carell wins on a rock-solid technicality — he's funny.

Tomatometer quote iconGet Smart rides Steve Carell's considerable charm for a few laughs, but in the end is a rather ordinary Summer comedy.
