Product Description

Get Smart: 2-disc Special Edition (DVD) 2008

In the world of covert intelligence, only one man is Smart. Steve Carell is in CONTROL as Maxwell Smart, the novice agent often out of his depths but never out of options in this action comedy pitting him against the nuclear scheme of the evil spy group KAOS. Anne Hathaway partners with Max as ever-capable Agent 99. And director Peter Segal (The Longest Yard ) guides his stars (including Dwayne Johnson and Alan Arkin) through the dangerous realm of molar radios, multifunction pocketknives, exploding dental floss and more.

The Cold War may be over, but that doesn't mean it can't still be milked for laughs. Get Smart, the sassy film version of the Mel Brooks/Buck Henry-created '60s TV satire, brings plenty of elements of the original series and spins it freshly into the new world of bad guys in the 21st century, pretty much without losing a beat. Steve Carell is perfectly cast as the bumbling Maxwell Smart--but in a slick improvement on the TV show, Smart isn't really hapless--though he has a bit of a self-esteem problem (all around his apartment are sticky notes with exhortations like "You can DO it!"). Carell's Maxwell Smart is a sharp techie researcher at the uber-secret crime-battling agency, CONTROL, who's just a little out of his element out in the field. As his data-crunching sidekick Bruce (Masi Oka of Heroes) says, "We're the ones guarding democracy!", aghast that Max would want to be an agent.

But Max longs for the action enjoyed by the likes of Agent 23 (a godlike Dwayne Johnson), with glamorous deployments around the world. When he finally gets his dream assignment--as the newly minted Agent 86--he's paired up with the slick and experienced Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway), who provides great lines, not to mention some interesting chemistry, while she continually saves Max from harm's way. The cast is terrific, with memorable appearances by Alan Arkin as the Chief, Terrence Stamp as the head of the uber-evil KAOS, and Bill Murray as a (literally) put-out-to-pasture agent whose spy post is inside a tree ("really great, old-school stuff" he calls his assignment). And there's plenty of action, explosions, and creative shootouts with the bad guys (highlight: a freefall from a plane, with two people and just two parachutes). But it's Carell and his combination of insecure yearning and deadpan delivery that make Get Smart as, well, smart as it is. When Max learns he's finally been promoted to agent, he slips into the Cone of Silence--which unfortunately is malfunctioning. "I'm so happy! I'm so happy!" he yells, as his colleagues sit nearby hearing the whole thing. Discovering that, he purses his lips and says, "Well, that's a sucker-punch to the gonads." Sorry about that. --A.T.

Before I watched this film, I read the reviews of the press and most of them weren't great. I am unfortunately one of those guys who will put himself off watching it because of those bad reviews. I'm gutted I did as this film was simply the personification of brilliance from start to finish. It's slick, stylish and downright comic excellence. Even for a film like this, the special effect and general action would put even James Bond to shame. It's exciting, quite emotional at times, cool at others and just downright silly at the times that are left.

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.

This film is the first I'd seen in YEARS where I actually laughed often during the entire film! Steve Carell is a fitting Maxwell Smart, bringing the personality and humor the character requires. (I'd been a fan of the old tv series, watching re-runs on Nick at Nite.) He's really the only man for the job that I could even picture in the role. And Anne Hathaway steals the show as the beautiful Agent 99. Anne and Steve compliment each other in every scene with hilarious, witty dialogue and facial expressions that only they can do. The Rock was also awesome as Agent 23. And Alan Arkin is surprisingly side-splitting as the Chief! I laughed at everything he did/said! SEE THIS FILM.

Hi Folks,
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!

I don't go to very many movies at the theater, usually wait for the DVDs to come out. Get Smart, however, is one movie that I saw twice at the theaters. Laughed my head off both times. Steve Carell plays an excellent Maxwell Smart and Anne Hathaway is great as his beautiful and sexy sidekick. If you remember the TV show you'll love this movie. The nuances connecting the movie to the show will make you smile.

Get Smart the movie uses current gags for humor while the tv series used dialog. This difference makes the movie very different from the tv series that disappoints many core fans. The movie is entertaining in its own way, spoofing Entrapment, Alias, and other spy movies along the way. One must always have a dance scene in a spy movie.

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.
