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.

One of the poorest of the classic TV show adaptation movies. Lacks any of the heart of the original show. Only Don Adams, of the original show, was involved in this film. He reprises his Maxwell Smart character very well, but there's no humor in the script for him to work with.
The classic spy movies satire Get Smart provided the kind of jokes you could use as one-liners in everyday speech, and the pleasant nostalgia of remembering lines like "Missed it by that much," "Sorry about that, Chief," "Would you believe...," etc. still evoke a smile today. This movie had little of that humor, and a contrived storyline that tried but went nowhere. Worst of all: there were none of Admas's hilarious co-stars doing the agents 99, 13, Himey, and of course the Chief. Ed Platt, as the chief, had passed away by the time this was made, but they failed to even get one of the others.
The writing of failure was on the wall before they started. One has to wonder: why (beyond the obvious cash-in on the name, that is) did they do this? At least the word "bomb" was in the title to warn you.
