In a year where even Ghost Rider gets a sequel, Get Smart makes you actually want one.

There's enough packed in there to warrant a viewing if you fancy a bit of fun.

Get Smart is a nice afternoon diversion. There are no big laughs to be had, no matter how hard it tries, but there are lots and lots of chuckles, and that's probably good enough.

It has at least five undeniable laughs.

The term laugh-a-minute is a bit hackneyed for my taste, and Get Smart comes closer to several laughs-a-minute.

Without Anne Hathaway, Get Smart might have been a one-note comedy; with her, it's super spirited and super fun.

Not funny outrageous or funny gross, but funny cute, funny nice, funny mild.

Smart summer entertainment that retains the likeability and wit of its source material but brings it into the 21st century with a perfectly cast Steve Carell.

Get Smart is happy enough to play for straight laughs rather than truly subversive wit.

You'll have a better time if you don't expect this re-imagined work to resemble the original. The phone shoe does fit Carell, and he wears it well.

The film doesn't have the sharp hysteria of the series, and it gets a bit over-serious at times. But it's still a thoroughly entertaining film with terrific characters all its own.

Get Smart won't change the world but it is the most fun movie out this weekend.

The picture works best as a comedy, and early on it's consistently amusing, with a refreshingly witty script and skilful actors in Carell, Arkin and, more surprisingly, Johnson, to put across the verbal and sight gags with brio.

Yet while it's as novel as a second-hand ejector seat and hits the groin more often than the funnybone, Get Smart still registers enough clicks on the giggle counter to make its mission passable.

Despite a plot that should be simpler, Get Smart is as big on action as it is on laughs and works because it's less a tired spoof and more a quality comedic adventure movie in its own right.

Entertaining, smartly acted spy comedy that delivers thrills and laughs in equal measure, while throwing in enough material to keep fans of the TV series happy.
