    "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 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 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.

    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.
