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.
MOVIE A DAY FOR A YEAR - DAY 122
Steve Carell is and always will be one of my favorite comedians of all time. This may be nowhere near his best work, but I still can appreciate it.
It's... yeah. It's trying to be Naked Gun. It succeeds in a fair few jokes, but it's actually neither zany enough nor gripping enough to survive on the levels on which it wants to work. It really depends on whether or not you can tolerate Steve Carell and/or Anne Hathaway for runtime. I for one am not so keen on Carell as a lead, for reasons I'll go into elsewhere. Not nearly enough Dwayne Johnson or Terry Crews, and I'm silencing all rumours regarding me and big burly funnymen riiiiiiight.... now. Now.
"Get Smart is a must see". One comedy of 2008 that I really enjoyed. The acting by Annie Hathaway's performance is a epic. A really good movie from start to finish.
Goofy,very weak in parts but Anne Hathaway is lively so brings some needed energy to this.
I’m leaning towards a solid 3 ½ out of 5 stars on this one. I’m a huge mark for Steve Carell and will pretty much fawn over anything he’s in. He’s a great choice for Maxwell Smart, the bumbling secret agent working for CONTROL. I can’t think of any other comedic actor working today that would have done as well in the role originated by Don Adams. Maxwell Smart has failed his agent exam seven times in his efforts to become a field agent. When an attack by the villainous KAOS organization leaves CONTROL short-handed, Smart gets to fulfill his wish to be a field agent as he and Agent 99 (Ann Hathaway) have to stop KAOS while the other…
Freakin' agents man,
This movie is such a fun film to just watch and enjoy once a year, and a lot of critics seem to not like it, but this is just one of my childhood films that I loved. Not a fan of other Peter Segal movies, but this is one of my favorites, and my first exposure to THE Anne Hathaway, I watched this because of her>>
I imagine your opinion of "Get Smart" will depend greatly on your feelings about the TV sitcom on which it is based. I have never seen one episode of the series, so I greatly enjoyed the film. However, by all accounts, it differs greatly in tone from its predecessor and possibly won't satisfy purists.
"Get Smart" isn't that different from any number of disposable action products hauled out by Hollywood every summer to dazzle us (or at least stupify us) with big, loud effects. But it's refreshingly lighthearted and funny, with Steve Carrell delivering dead-pan one-liners even as he's trying to untangle himself from life-threatening situations. He plays bumbling doofus well, and if you think Carrell is funny in any…
Get Smart is basically James Bond on the short bus.
Comedies are hard to rate as they are strictly opinion based and it can't be picked apart in the same way as other genres. I'm not a fan of this, but there will be others who love it. Steve Carell isn't my favorite actor in the world. Despicable Me, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World and Little Miss Sunshine are the highlights of his career in my opinion. Anne Hathaway hasn't impressed me yet and The Rock was okay. Though Dwayne Johnson seemed to be a bit miscast in this one.
Finding a comedy that actually makes me laugh is best defined as a miracle. I didn't…
Why I wanted to watch it:
Steve Carrell is ruddy hilarious.
What I liked:
Was basically like "Threat Level Midnight" on a big budget. Michael Scarn's first mission.
This is another of those films that's better than you expect it to be -- a fun example of the action comedy, with a great cast delivering spot on performances as likable characters, and action that has a real element of thrill involved.
obviously the title isn't serious, have whatever opinion on whatever, just films I enjoy that people seem to hate
