I didn't grow up on good films. I just grew up on crap, Hollywood films. My parents failed to add…
Saving The World...And Loving It!
When the identities of secret agents from Control are compromised, the Chief promotes hapless but eager analyst Maxwell Smart and teams him with stylish, capable Agent 99, the only spy whose cover remains intact. Can they work together to thwart the evil plans of KAOS and its crafty operative?
I love this movie. Sue me.
Was it worth re-watching this achingly inessential movie for Bill Murray's 37-second cameo? I would argue it was not.
For fans of one of the most one sided comedians out there this probably constitutes a good time.
For the rest of us it passes the time a lot like having to go to the toilet really badly without one available nearby.
It starts off ok but becomes increasingly uncomfortable with the orgasmic feeling of release once it's over and you can finally let go.
Now this was a very surprisingly funny comedy. I expected it to be something really cheap and stupid, but I ended up quite liking it, never feeling bored nor tired of it. The pairing of Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway is great, as is the satirical nature of the film's jokes towards the spy genre.
Of course that by the time that the credits roll, it doesn't seem to matter too much anymore (which is a typical case with these comedies), but for what it is, it's actually very likeable and entertaining. Give it a go if you like the leads.
I definitely liked Get Smart a lot more on this second time around. It's a fun time-killer, but still nothing amazing. The action scenes happened to be entertaining enough. Some of the random things that Steve Carell say are really funny, and I think that him and Anne Hathaway had some very amusing banter going on in their scenes together. I've always been a big Hathaway fan, and not just because of her looks (although that has a tremendous amount to do with it) so it was cool to see her in a decent comedy, along with the supporting cast.
I can only see Steve Carrell as Michael Scott. And Anne Hathaway is completely unfun here, though she does look gorgeous.
They pulled all the classic Get Smart gags, but somehow this film is utterly joyless and uncharming.
Get Smart was a film I have seen one other time, probably 5-6 years ago and I remembered I enjoyed and laughed quite a bit, so I thought I would give it a re watch and see if it held up and if I still enjoyed it. I will say that once again I had a lot of fun and laughed quite a bit, in no way is this a great movie and its very cliche at times, but I can't deny I had a lot of fun with this cast and this movie once again. I really enjoyed the chemistry of Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway they were funny and worked very well together, I always enjoy Alan Arkin…
Hilarious performances all round, especially from big Carell
honestly the best thing about this is the minute long cameo of Bill Murray in a tree but yeah
Love this movie! So funny.
That guy from the office playing that guy from the office as a spy.

Scavenger Hunt #15 - Film 16
Task #23: A film with an athlete cameo
I was really bad at picking appropriate films this month. The Rock is more than a cameo and does he even count as an athlete. I don't know what I was thinking.
Too late now anyway.
Steve Carell in anything. I actually liked Anne Hathaway. Rest was just normal spy antics with a classic, potentially predictable twist.
I've been putting on hold that movie for a few years now bc I thought it'll be bad, but, I was wrong. I actually really enjoyed the movie it was nice
Complete list. :-(
