Excerpt: Pulled this off the shelf. It had been a while since I'd seen. And laughed, A LOT! I thought Carell was the perfect Maxwell Smart. And Anne Hathaway great (and very sexy) as 99. Both Carell and Hathaway had terrific chemistry. Here's hoping for a sequel, and soon!
Summary: Love "Get Smart". It is not only an amazing tribute to the original show, but it is a hilarious contemporary action comedy. If you've never seen the TV show, this will make you want to seek it out. Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway, and Dwayne Johnson are all perfect in it.
Pros: Broad Appeal, Engaging Characters, Entertaining, Funny, Good Acting, Great Comedians
Summary: Great actors, wasted on an aimless script and flimsy plot. What's more, the entire thing lacks any of the charm, wit, and unbridled silliness of the original TV show. In fact, the humor is downright dark. I would've settled for a half-baked throwback than this overcooked clinker.
