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.
Very my kind of humour. A strong beginning and finish to the film, but the middle is a bit wishy-washy.
"I don't know. Were you thinking 'holy shit, holy shit, a swordfish almost went through my head'? If so, yes."
I'm not usually a big fan of spooky spy movies, but at least this one doesn't rely solely on slapstick. This movie is goofy and has some thoroughly entertaining moments, but the overall plot is fairly boring. I can see how this premise could have made a good tv show, but the movie just felt overlong without really amounting to much. I definitely have to check out the original series, though.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
It's my favorite film about Michael Scott teaming up with Catwoman to take down Chancellor Valorum and Azamat from Borat, only to find out that the world-famous The Rock is also a bad guy.
Also it's my favorite movie about Bill Murray living in a tree.
steve's in top form
Steve Carell and Ann Hathaway have a great dynamic.
Still one of my favourite comedies of all time. Steve Carrell is just so good.
I had a choice between seeing this and "The Dark Knight" in theaters.
I chose poorly.
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.
