Maxwell Smart has always dreamed of working in the field with superstar Agent 23 but he is partnered with the lovely-but-lethal veteran Agent 99. Given little field experience and even less time, Smart, armed with nothing but a few spy-tech gadgets and his enthusiasm must thwart the doomsday plans of KAOS head Siegfried.
Action Comedy - This adaptation of the '60s TV comedy is a bit more action-heavy
the original show. Fans of the show and stars Steve Carell and Anne
Hathaway should be please. The target audience is mostly younger
males but there is appeal to other demographics.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good Get Smart is delightfully silly and at times very funny.
Roger EbertFull Review Very Good It's funny, exciting, preposterous, great to look at, and made with the same level of technical expertise we'd expect from a new Bond movie itself. And all of that is very nice, but nicer still is the perfect pitch of the casting.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average Get Smart is bright enough, but stops short of being clever.

Maxwell Smart (Steve Carell) is on a mission to thwart the latest plot for world domination by the evil crime syndicate known as KAOS. When the headquarters of U.S. spy agency Control is attacked and the identities of its agents compromised, the Chief (Alan Arkin) has no choice but to promote his ever-eager analyst Maxwell Smart, who has always dreamt of working in the field alongside stalwart superstar Agent 23 (Dwayne Johnson). Smart is partnered instead with the lovely-but-lethal veteran Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway). Given little field experience and even less time, Smart—armed with nothing but a few spy-tech gadgets and his unbridled enthusiasm—must thwart the doomsday plans of KAOS head Siegfried (Terence Stamp).
