The gags get tiring after a while. The only things going for this film were Carell's jokes and Hathaway's looks.

I've never really liked Steve Carell all that much because his sense of humor is a little on the depressive/dry side, but this movie really made me like him - his performance as Maxwell Smart was awesome! I'm glad he didn't adopt the previous actor's way of talking and went with his own tone and rhythm instead. The gadgets were also the star of this movie, in my opinion (the crossbow is awesome). A sequel would be nice!

While "Get Smart" might be one of the silliest movies I've seen, I don't think its fair to call it dumb. It embraces its tone early on and keeps the laughs coming throughout. It works well as a parody of the spy movie genre while also having an enjoyable story with solid action scenes. It's an irresistibly fun movie with a great cast and something for everyone. Steve Carrell is easily the stand out here but all of the other actors do a good job and have solid comedic timing. Nothing in the movie makes any logical sense, but that's kind of the point, and the movie is more than self-aware. Aspects of the movie feel predictable but the movie still has a unique style that makes it worth seeing.

Late getting here but I really liked this movie. Terribly interesting and fun to boot. Director Peter Segal does wonderful work....that for me. Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway were great (Anne, never more beautiful with talent and Alan Arkin was great to see but the whole cast was picture perfect too. Loved it.

Get Smart isn't really anything new, but it still ends up a decently funny time.

Really funny first half, but runs out of steam by the second, becoming a generic and forgettable spy comedy. It's better than Johnny English at least.

Get Smart is directed by Peter Segal, and it stars Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway, Dwayne Johnson, Alan Arkin, and Terence Stamp in an action comedy about an analyst agent that wants to be in the field, but CONTROL wouldn't let Maxwell (Steve Carell) to do so. So when something happened to CONTROL, they have no choice but to put Maxwell in the field with Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway), who thinks that he's not prepared for the field. I've seen this a few times only for the fact hat Steve Carell is in this, and I wanted to watch this again because I found it on HBO on DirecTV, which got me to DVR it and watch Get Smart, which is a great film. The acting has the comedic chops for the jokes that go by quick, especially Steve Carell who's the best part of the film, and I got a lot of laughs from him. The chemistry between the main characters is fine with some good jokes, but it's a very generic one that you've seen in many buddy cop films. The action scenes are fun to watch, and are also done in a bit of a comedic way. The characters are good, and the villain has some interesting moments, even if I wanted more of it. Some of the jokes don't always but there are so many jokes afterwards that make me laugh that I forgot them for a while. Get Smart is a really funny movie that this would be the closest to a James Bond parody to me without it actually being a James Bond film.

There are some laughs to be had, but overall its a mildly entertaining film.

Get Smart isn't exactly the most recommendable TV show based film in the world. In fact, it works better as a stand-alone worked for me anyway. Fortunately, the film redeems itself with plenty of laughs, some perfectly serviceable action sequences and the charm that is present whenever Steve Carell is on the screen with Anne Hathaway seeming committed in the role of the almost no-nonsense Agent 99. I recently watched an alternative version of this film where the viewer can get to see deleted/alternate versions of scenes that didn't make it into the final cut and I was thorougly amused by them. As I said, the film still works better as a stand-alone film in my opinion but nevertheless remains amusing enough to serve as suitable recommendation for both fans of the original Mel Brooks TV show and regular film junkies like me.

Get Smart, while well acted, fails to be smart or as fun as it should be.

Carell did what he does, and what is expected.

A great afternoon movie, with a really nice blend of Action & Comedy.
I loved the performances of the characters, especially Steve Carell's straight face & his attitude, which was unusual, but hilarious!

Get Smart will have you smiling the whole time, chuckling and giggling for a healthy chunk of it, and a handful of times it'll make you laugh until it hurts. Surprisingly solid action, a very likable role for Steve Carell, and Anne Hathaway showing more charm than ever. Alan Arkin, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson...they're all good. Not an instant classic, but definitely worth catching if you need a laugh. Some terrific one-liners and physical comedy. Steve Carrell seems to be channeling more of his Daily Show persona and less of Michael Scott, and it's good to be reminded of his comedic range. Rated PG-13 for a few profanities and a handful of vulgar jokes/innuendo. ***1/2 (out of five).

Great action comedy. As you would expect, Steve Carrell is top notch as a bumbling agent, he's like inspector closesau. (If you don't know who that is, stop whatever you're doing and go watch a movie entitled a shot in the dark) With such a game cast, funny jokes and thrilling action, you really can't go wrong. Not necessarily a must see, but you will laugh a lot, unless you only like high comedy.
