Get Smart doesn't have a lot of laugh out loud moments, but it does have plenty of chuckles, which is just enough to make it miles better than the other new comedy.

There are a few funny moments, mostly courtesy of Carell's natural charm and some surprising cameos that inject some much-needed life into an otherwise generic film.

There are a few laughs, but nothing memorable, no biting satire and no clever wit. Most disappointing, there's no real chemistry between the bumbling Maxwell Smart and beautiful Agent 99. A fizzle where there be sizzle.

There's a bit of tonal problem with this bundled blockbuster.
July 29, 2015
The movie is hurt more than helped by having to carry over character names and shoehorn in the show's greatest hits, Carell and Hathaway's rhythm faltering with every recycled catchphrase.

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

For anyone who entertained hopes for Get Smart and has not been entertained back, the film's main fault will lie in its wobbly translation.

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

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.

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

It has at least five undeniable laughs.

While I think ultimately this film is unnecessary, it's still fairly entertaining and it's certainly better than the recent Pink Panther reboot with Steve Martin.
February 11, 2009
The term laugh-a-minute is a bit hackneyed for my taste, and Get Smart comes closer to several laughs-a-minute.

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
January 29, 2009
...a manufactured piece of work that's been geared towards the lowest common denominator.
November 9, 2008
Without Anne Hathaway, Get Smart might have been a one-note comedy; with her, it's super spirited and super fun.
October 28, 2008
Not funny outrageous or funny gross, but funny cute, funny nice, funny mild.

The movie is a time-killer without a killer instinct.
