Storyline

American Maxwell Smart works for a Government spy agency in an administrative capacity. When the agency's head office is attacked, the Chief decides to assign Maxwell as a spy and partners him with sexy Agent 99, much to her chagrin. The duo nevertheless set off to combat their attackers by first parachuting off an airplane and landing in Russian territory - followed closely by an over seven feet tall, 400 pound goon, known simply as Dalip. The duo, handicapped by Maxwell's antics, will eventually have their identities compromised, and may be chalked up as casualties, while back in America their attackers have already planted a bomb that is set-up to explode in a concert.

6 November 2008 | by vito7See all my reviews

This movie made me laugh out loud on a few occasions. But between the laughs, which were few and far between, there wasn't a how lot in the way of entertainment. I enjoyed the reruns of the show as a child but Steve Carell doesn't so much take on the Max Smart role as much as he just changes the name of his Michael character from the "Office". Don't get me wrong I'm a huge "Office" fan and if this was "Office" the movie I'd be the first one in line, but this was suppose to be Get Smart. I was expecting a much more arrogant and pompous portrayal as was the classic Maxwell Smart. Overall it isn't a bad viewing if you've got nothing else to do, but don't go out of your way to catch this one.
