Watch and Laugh! You'll enjoy this!,
This review is from: Get Smart [DVD]  (DVD)
I'm old enough that I watched repeats of the original series. I do know what you are thinking though....Do you remember what they did to 'The Avengers'?
This is a film you can watch with your whole family and no-one will feel offended and everyone will Laugh Out Loud - really, not just in the Internet kind of way.
Carell Plays 'Smart' and Anne Hathaway plays Agent 99. Good casting has helped this film loads. There is also a 'blink and you'd miss it' cameo from Bill Murrey which made both me and Mrs. AR laugh as there is no reason for him to appear like he did!
What the film does well.
Good use of special affects.
Gives 'The Rock' another acting job.
Hiro from Heroes is in it.
What the film does badly.
A little 'cheesy' and although the story is great, if you are an adult you may see some of the jokes coming from a mile off.
Is it wrong to enjoy a film which is aimed at a younger audience? I think not. When you strip away peoples desire to appear more educated and knowledgeable than everyone else you'll find we all share a primal desire to laugh in the company of others. This films allows you to do just that. You even get a quick glimps of Anne Hathaway in her undies...another 'blink and you'd miss it' moment.
AR's Review Score
Get Smart gets an 8/10 - A great 'All Rounder' of a film. Brilliant for a rainy afternoon with the kids or a film to watch in the evening with your better half.
