Plot Summary
When the headquarters of
U.S. spy agency Control is
attacked and identities of
its agents compromised,
the Chief 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. Smart is partnered
instead with the only other
agent whose identity has
not been compromised: the
lovely-but-lethal veteran
Agent 99.

As Smart and 99 get closer
to unravelling KAOS' master
plan - and each other-they
discover that key KAOS
operative Siegfried and his
sidekick Shtarker are
scheming to cash in with
their network of terror.
Given little field experience
and even less time, Smart -
armed with nothing but a
few spy-tech gadgets and
his unbridled enthusiasm -
must defeat KAOS if he has
to save the day.

The 2008 film iteration of GET SMART was faithful to Mel Brooks' classic spy comedy series, but it was a good movie adaptation of a TV show that I ever seen. I praise the acting of Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway who both look perfect for the agent duo of Maxwell Smart and Agent 99 and some funny parts of the movie such as where Max tries to get rid of the handcuffs on the airplane only to accidentally fall through the trapdoor in the plane causing him to free-fall only to be rescued by 99 in a parachute and the other funny scene is where he's trying to pass through the lasers whilst he's got a rat in his pants.

This movie was overall a comedic blast of laughs and entertainment for all ages.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
