    "Get Smart" is a terrible spy copy-cat movie. It does nothing right with its crude jokes, dumb action, a not-funny steve carell, stone-cold Hathaway, and homosexuality (Dwayne Johnson)?

    The action was better than I expected. As far as the humor goes, all the scenarios that Max gets himself into are, for the most part, hilarious. Side characters supply great one-liners,too.

    The set up is perfect, but for being an almost two hour film, the laughs are pretty sparse, and Steve Carell seems to be sleepwalking through his role.

    Get Smart blends plenty of spontaneously funny moments and clever, witty jokes with solid performances from Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway to make easily one of the more hilarious comedies I've ever seen.

    Difficile de ne pas comparer Max la Menace à son homologue britannique Johnny English, tant les deux font sans l'ombre d'un doute la paire! Deux agents secrets novices qui se vantent, sans pour autant arrêter la déferlante de gags. Tout cela pour nous divertir! Et il fallait admettre que cela marchait avec English. Avec Max la Menace, c'est pareil! A la différence que l'on sent ici le produit américain, qui n'hésite pas à user d'un humour parfois pipi caca (et en dessous de la ceinture) qui ne rate pourtant rarement son objectif, et qui possède un côté plus spectaculaire question action (la poursuite finale). Bref, amusant et distrayant. Expand

    This movie had everything, action, mystery, and nonstop comedy. All the actors worked well together and were great spies! Steve and Anne worked well together as well as th rest of the cast. Highly recommended!

    A few good laughs and a few good smiles. Honestly, that's all I was looking for. Get Smart is not meant to be a quality piece of filmmaking--rather a light, mild-actioned flick starring two likable actors, Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway.

    I was in need of a laugh so I decided to watch Get Smart and to be honest I didn

    Get Smart is great fun, made so by an awesome cast. Carrell and Arkin are just being themselves here, but they fit in so perfectly.

    A silly movie with nice visuals and an atmosphere that is harmless. It is extremely fun to watch, and all the characters are just like he TV show in the 60's. Steve Carrel is perfect for the role, and many scenes are hilarious as he uses some classic Maxwell Smart catchphrases.

    Get Smart stays stupid.
    The entire movie feels like a bad joke. Carrell isn't funny, Hathaway does nothing, and Dwayne Johnson is well, Dwayne Johnson. The action is pathetic and the "spy" aspect does nothing for the movie and its terrible script.

    Get Smart was an absolutely fantastic movie! It is filled with action, a TON of comedy, and suspense that will leave you breathless. The visual and special effects on this movie is a definite crowd pleaser. The actors were superbly phenomenal and were well-suited for their parts. Great movie, great actors, great effects, great storyboard, and a great pleasure to watch!

    In this distressingly generic spy spoof, it's not Maxwell who's clueless, but the filmmakers.
  2. This is a slap-dash effort whose producers threw money and stunts onscreen instead of the satirical gags and one-liners that made the old spy spoof so memorable.

    Helmer Peter Segal's formulaic takeoff is neither fish nor fowl, not quite faithful to the show, but not quite bringing it into the 21st century either.
