directed by Clive Donner.
But I actually thoroughly enjoyed it. It lacked the originality of the original TV series as well as the charisma and many of the cast members, as well as the participation of Mel Brooks, but it matched it with the level if silliness, some good laughs and a good lead from Don Adam's in his iconic role.
The Nude Bomb was also filmed on good locations and features a good soundtrack, and I found that I was laughing enough times for me to consider it a good film, so all in all The Nude Bomb was fairly ok and is definitely way underrated and top unknown for a film based on the classic comedy series Get Smart.
I wonder.... was this whole movie just conceived as a very long advertisement for the Universal Studios theme park?
The old series were lightweight and a bit stupid fun in a good pace. This movie doesn't really work on any level. Get Smart in 1965-69 was silly and easy in a way that culture could get away with than, and still be meant for adults. It's unknown who the audience are for Get mart of 1980.
We get a lot of walking into glass doors, falling down stairs, falling down behind sofas, falling down everywhere and misunderstanding of anything in general.
Where is agent 99? or at least anyone that reminds of her just a tiny bit? Where is the groovy times? Well not in "the nude bomb" that's for sure
so a bit boring, dull, tedious and tiresome but still the looks of 1980 still saves some of the day, but not all of course
