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.
Stunts, gadgets and Bill Murray in a tree: Get Smart hurls everything at the screen in the hope it'll stick. Shame all the money went on the dopey action finale instead of some halfway witty gags and a decent script.
