3.0 out of 5 stars Geek Smart August 2, 2008
Format:DVD
"Is it a mystery?
Is it a mystery?

I'm spinning out of control
Out of control"
(Hoobastank)

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Bruce (Masi Oka) and Lloyd (Nate Torrence) are gadget geeks working for the secret spy agency CONTROL
2. They develop an invisibility cloak
3. It gets stolen
4. They have to get it back

This is a simultaneous spin-off to the movie "Get Smart", allegedly taking part during the time frame of the movie. About five other movie characters appear in this very short (71 minutes) parody, some only as brief cameos.

It's not great cinema, but it manages to raise a few chuckles without resorting to potty humor, foul language, tired sight gags or gross-out scenes.

Exactly what you thought it'd be
For something straight to DVD
It has no wisdom to impart
And won't push viewers to "Get Smart"

3.0 out of 5 stars Direct to DVD spin off - fun but short... July 14, 2008
Format:DVD
I have to admit that this is a first for me.

Typically when you see a movie in the theatre, it's usually about three months after it's finished its run that it finally hits DVD.

It wasn't all that long ago that I saw the remake of Get Smart. In fact, I wrote a review about the movie and how much I enjoyed it.

I also mentioned in that review that there was a direct to DVD spin off coming out soon, one based on two of the minor characters in the movie, Bruce and Lloyd, a couple of techno geeks who worked for Control (portrayed by Heroes Masi Oka, and relative newcomer Nate Torrence).

The fact of the matter is that I enjoyed Get Smart immensely, and I found that these two supporting characters were a quaint and enjoyable touch.

Did they deserve their own movie? Maybe yes, maybe no, it depends on your point of view.

Do I think they deserved their own spin off movie? Well, I bought the DVD, didn't I?

Ok the story is very simple, and as per usual, I won't give away any spoilers that you couldn't see by watching trailers on the net or on other DVD's.

Bruce and Lloyd are working hard at perfecting a `invisible cloak', one that would render the wearer totally invisible.

The trials are working out quite well, but they have a little issue with a very limited battery life.

Now, mind you, the movie parallels Get Smart, so some of the events that take place in the theatrical version are shown or mentioned in this DVD. There is even a brief cameo by Anne Hathaway and Patrick Warburton (although the latter had only a tiny cameo in the Get Smart movie as well).

The movie had only a few really good laughs, but it was entertaining.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, light-hearted entertainment July 3, 2008
Format:DVD
I watched this flick and I enjoyed it immensely.

First things first: is it funny, and is it interesting? YES and YES.
The humor is the light-hearted, "Scrubs" kind, and fits well in a movie about two lovable lab-dweebs. (Example: Hot girl does something impressive. Socially awkward lab-geek Lloyd is impressed, but the best response he can muster is: Do you like pie?)

There are enough laughs sprinkled throughout, with a little bit of action here and there, so the movie keeps moving at a nice pace. The 71 minutes goes by pretty fast.

Those expecting an Oscar-caliber movie of epic proportion with tremendous societal impact and big-budget cgi have been grossly misinformed. Those expecting a light, slap-sticky romp will not be disappointed.

And as far as the film's main 'object' - an 'invisible cloak' - well, Harry Potter has an invisible cloak, James Bond has an invisible car, the Fantastic Four have an invisible woman. Movies are all about the fantasy of far-fetched concepts that don't exist in the real world.

If you can't or won't buy it, then definitely rent it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A lightweight goofball comedy. July 12, 2008
Format:DVD
OK, you can't really judge this as if it were a real movie. It is more like a TV show. Masi Oka (from Heroes) is Bruce and Nate Torrence is Lloyd. They work in Control's gadget's lab and are the kind of nerds you expect them to be. Of course the important thing they are working on doesn't really work, they manage to lose it, it gets in the hand of some really bad guys, and they have to get it back at the risk of life and limb under threat of a deadline.

Jayma Mays plays Nina, the good girl nerd who works in the pathology lab with its attendant strains on relationships. Marika Dominczyk plays the bad girl with the heart of gold Isabelle. Larry Miller plays Bruce and Lloyd's boss and does his usual fine job as an oppressive idiot boss. There are also some cute cameos from the real movie.

This movie is just over an hour long and is a decent lightweight silly comedy. Don't take it seriously and don't judge it by exacting standards.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short Supplement to the GET SMART Movie September 8, 2010
Format:DVD
GET SMART'S BRUCE AND LLOYD OUT OF CONTROL is a spin-off of the GET SMART movie that was originally released on DVD to coincide with the theatrical release of the GET SMART movie. The movie takes place concurrently with the events of the GET SMART movie and there are a few cameos from stars of GET SMART, including Anne Hathaway.

Bruce (Masi Oka) and Lloyd (Nate Torrence) are two guys who work in the Research and Development department of CONTROL. They've been working on a top secret device: an invisibility cloak. During a wild party (in which KAOS attacks CONTROL), their invisibility cloak is stolen by a female spy from Maraguay who intends to sell the cloak to KAOS. With the only non-compromised agents (Smart/86 and 99) already in the field, Bruce and Lloyd have to leave the confines of CONTROL and get the invisibility cloak back before it's sold to KAOS.

It should be noted that Jayma Mays is also featured in the movie as Bruce's love interest. I'm a big fan of hers and seeing her in the movie made it that much more enjoyable for me.

The DVD has a few extras including the "Control Confessionals" featurette which has the characters of the movie talking into a camera, ala reality tv style. There's also a "real science" featurette about the actual science behind some of the movie's gadgets. Lastly, there are some trailers.

GET SMART'S BRUCE AND LLOYD OUT OF CONTROL isn't a gut-busting knee-slapper. However, it does provide some good laughs and is entertaining. It's provides a nice additional sub-story to the main story of the GET SMART movie.

Very funny

3.0 out of 5 stars Silly movie
It wasn't as good as Get Smart, but it would be a good movie for young young kids. I didn't pay much at all for it, so I'm not too disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like silly/goofy
I think this movie is funny, but I can really get into cheesy/goofy movies. You should definitely watch Get Smart before this movie, so you understand the references to it.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Impaled by a stuffed elk head"
The movie "Get Smart" was a riot. This movie "Bruce and Lloyd Out of Control" not so much. In fact. Not even close. When I saw the poor reviews I just delusionally rationalised. Read more

It has some humorous moments, that are quickly gone, but over all I found it boring. It did arrive in good condition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good enough for a few laugh--It will put a smile on your face.
Enjoyable fun little movie. If you liked Get Smart, I'm sure you will enjoy this.
Don't forget to watch the bonus features... they are better than your normal dvd extras.

Why?
Well most probably fans of Masi Oka (Hiro Nakamura from Heroes) and Nate Torrence would want to watch it. And the storyline is rather interesting too.
