Let me start off by saying that I haven't seen the TV series that this movie is adapted from, and so can't make any comparisons or comment on its transition to the big screen. Having viewed 'Get Smart' with next to no knowledge of what the the show was even about, I was hugely disappointed to find a generic and boring comedy movie filled with a bunch of lame and unoriginal jokes.
There was only one scene that actually made me laugh, and that was the one where Carrell's character is attempting to navigate the room full of laser traps. Other than than, the humour just didn't appeal to me and there's nothing that separates the jokes in this film from the majority of other modern day comedies. 'Get Smart' is a poor comedy movie and I'm completely put off from checking out the TV show if it's anything like this.
American Maxwell Smart works for a Government spy agency in an administrative capacity. When the agency's head office is attacked, the Chief decides to assign Maxwell as a spy and partners him with sexy Agent 99, much to her chagrin. The duo nevertheless set off to combat their attackers by first parachuting off an airplane and landing in Russian territory - followed closely by an over seven feet tall, 400 pound goon, known simply as Dalip. The duo, handicapped by Maxwell's antics, will eventually have their identities compromised, and may be chalked up as casualties, while back in America their attackers have already planted a bomb that is set-up to explode in a concert.
