Steve Carell plays Maxwell Smart, a secret agent who desperately wants to get on the field. The government agency he works for known only as CONTROL are infiltrated by an evil agency known as KAOS which compromises the identities of all the current field agents. So in order to battle this force and still stay a secret, the chief of CONTROL puts smart on the field and assigns him the title of agent 86 partnering him with the much more experienced Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway). Max looks up to his close friend and one of the best agents on the field, Agent 23 (Dwayne Johnson). He is the James Bond of CONTROL and it's no surprise that Max wants to be so much like him.
This is just a really light hearted and fast paced film. I guess it could just be labelled a comedy, but that would just ignore the other great aspects of the film. The action is done really well and isn't the tacky type comedy we have come to associate comedy movies when they feature action. Some of the sequences are genuinely unique and truly edge of your seat. The chemistry between Hathaway and Carell is great and one scene in particular expresses the comedic chemistry between the two.Read more ›
Being a huge fan of the original I missed this in theaters due to negative reviews..it isn't as bad as they made out...and is better than much I've wasted my money on...all that said...the SINGLE DISC version is a much better deal in my opinion..
the 5 bonus features on the second disc of this set..all add up to about 20 minutes!! There isn't a really solid "making of" to be found in this deluxe 2 disc edition. There was no need for a second disc for this skimpy bunch of nothing. The Digital copy is truly the ONLY reason for anyone to buy this version and that is what my review is about. There are plenty of reviews of the movie..but if you don't need the digital copy ..stick with the single disc edition..this bunch of truly nothing isn't worth your money..
OH..I almost forgot the annoying 1st disc special feature with the bonus 62% more "laughs" ...well the reason its annoying is that you can't simply choose this version..(which wouldn't make sense anyway as many of the additional laughs were versions of scenes cut or deleted for ones in the movie so we are seeing alternative versions of funny scenes) but have to have your remote in hand and instead of an icon which shows up on screen the whole picture freezes up and shows you an image of a remote and you then hit enter and see the additional laughs (or additional attempts at laughs)..as if you can even remember where you were in the story after all that ...over and over and over...really not a viewing option for anyone who isn't overly curious to see all the less than stellar bi-product of the production to understand why those "laughs" never made the movie in the first place.
I wish I'd have saved the money and purchased the single disc version.
you have been warned!
What was disappointing was Siegfried and Starkel, who both lacked the goofy incompetence and humor found in the original series. Sure, Max was a goof, but Kaos was even more inept than Control.
The 2nd disc is not worth the extra money in a special edition. The gag reel is rather short and could have been included in the 1st disc. The 1st disc presents the alternative jokes in a very aggravating manner. It forces you to watch the entire movie and it is constantly interrupted with the phone booth elevator. Only by pressing the enter button when the phone booth is shown, will the alternative gag line be shown. Very tedious to be constantly interrupted and having to press the button to watch the gags. It would have been much easier and entertaining to watch the gags the standard way with their own menu.
Overall the movie was entertaining, but the poor special features in the 2-Disc Special Edition results in a 1-star deduction due to the higher purchase cost. The single disc edition is good enough and a better value for your money. Wished that other reviewers could have explained the 2nd disc in more detail, would have saved some money and only purchased the single disc version. If you already have the single disc version, no need to buy this 2-disc version.

A fun spy themed movie our whole family enjoyed. A few scenes we chose to fast forward thru. But a very fun evening watching.Published 9 days ago by Michelle Lawrence
As a fan of the original Get Smart series with Don Adams and Barbara Feldon, I think it could've been even less funny and I'm would have still enjoyed it. Read morePublished 22 days ago by D. Albinson
