Las Vegas Weekly

Suffers from unfortunate delusions of being an action movie that quickly overtake its potential as a comedy.

Is it too late to go back and make the whole thing about Bill Murray in that tree?

Surely after the Speed Racer fiasco, Warner Brothers was ready to say 'sayonara' to lame 1960s TV adaptations. But plainly there wasn't time for the studio to, ahem, Get Smart about that.

Get Smart is sort of mildly amusing, and if you were a fan of the original series you might love it, but a lot of the jokes are weak.

Hollywood has no idea what to do with Steve Carell.

[I]f director Peter Segal and writers Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember didn't want Maxwell Smart to be a bumbling boob, fine, but they haven't given him much of a personality to substitute for the old one.

Missed it by that much. Actually, the new version of Get Smart misses by a fair-size margin. It's too bad. It's just trying to give us a good time at the retroplex.

Rather than the laugh a minute promised by old comedies, Get Smart generates approximately one laugh per hour, and I can't remember either one.

In 'Get Smart,' Steve Carell doesn't do anything to acknowledge Don Adams or make the Maxwell Smart role his own.

The hostile repartee between the characters is as ungainly as director Peter Segal's lumbering action sequences

Per the latest intelligence report: For a grown-up summer comedy, Get Smart gets merely a passing grade.

This is a slap-dash effort whose producers threw money and stunts onscreen instead of the satirical gags and one-liners that made the old spy spoof so memorable.

Tim Grierson
Screen International

Offering a little bit of everything but not quite enough of any one thing, Get Smart is a likable jumble of genres that would have benefited from being less ambitious.

What do dithering tv weathermen do when they retire? They must take their lame, witless banter and their awkward timing to Hollywood to write and direct movies. That might explain Get Smart, one of the latest in a long line of humid, mediocre, tire

Get Smart certainly has its moments, but suffers badly from an inability to balance the surreal humor and life-threatening terrorist threat.

Despite its classic-TV pedigree, Get Smart is just another big, dumb summer movie and should have heeded its title's advice.

Get Smart has it all - the Cone of Silence, the shoe phone, the familiar one-liners. But the re-imagined Maxwell Smart isn't nearly as funny as the original.

Lessons of Darkness

A succession of tepid gags tethered by a flimsy narrative.

An unwieldy spoof-thriller of clashing styles that undermine each other like a parade of double agents.
