I don't know what you're up to, Claw, but I will stop you.
Aw touché, Inspector, I think someone has been watching way too many Saturday morning cartoons.

At the very, very end, after the credits are done rolling and Gadgetmobile finally quiets up, you see the typical logo for Caravan Pictures of a man's silohette as he walks down a lone road. But this time, a copter pops out of his hat and he flys away. See more »
This is a great treat for Inspector Gadget fans. Matthew Broderick makes a terrific Gadget. Michelle Trachtenberg does Penny justice, and they haven't updated her at all. She's just a very smart, cute little girl. There's no annoying concessions to the nineties. Brain doesn't talk--almost, but they've picked a very cunning-looking, adorable beagle for the part. Rupert Everett is suitably evil as Dr. Claw, and Joely Fisher portrays a believable love interest. The script honors the cartoon, and the gadgetry, most inventions from the source material, do not usurp the story or characterization which nicely portrays our heroes as simply nice people you'd love to have for your neighbors. Stay in your seat until the screen goes blank. Go-Go-Great!
