In the clone fight scene, the face of Max's stunt double is clearly seen in several shots. See more »
I'm a secret agent. And I am here on a very important mission, Edith. May I call you Edith?
Edith Von Secondberg:
I'd like that. Particularly since that's my name. You'll find I answer a lot faster to it than I would if you called me Marion.
I'm going to level with you, Marion... May I call you Marion?

The opening credits are based on Don Adams/Maxwell Smart's catch phrase "Would you believe...?" The words literally form the backdrop of the action; at one point "Would you believe a movie called 'The Nude Bomb' could receive a PG rating?" appears; and after Max inadvertently blows up the bad guy, the words "Would you believe a helluva explosion?" appear on screen.

Like the Austin Powers movies, "Get Smart" is a spoof of spy movies like the James Bond series, and "The Nude Bomb", made at the height of the Cold War, in the early 1980s, concerns Maxwell Smart, Agent 86, the guy with the shoe phone, pursuing the madman who has developed a bomb that, if exploded, would render everyone without clothes. This is an underrated movie and works well even with the absence of the original supporting cast from the 1960s television series. Almost, but not quite as funny as "The Naked Gun". 8/10
