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.

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

...a manufactured piece of work that's been geared towards the lowest common denominator.

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.

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

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.

The stage is clearly set for a sequel, but God help them if they stuff that movie with even more clutter than they stuffed into this one.

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.

A dumbed-down version of a belovedly lowbrow 1960s TV series.
