Roger Ebert It’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 It’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.
Peter Travers No knockout, but Carell wins on a rock-solid technicality — he's funny.
Tomatometer Get Smart rides Steve Carell's considerable charm for a few laughs, but in the end is a rather ordinary Summer comedy.
