When he finds out that his work superiors host a dinner celebrating the idiocy of their guests, a rising executive questions it when he's invited, just as he befriends a man who would be the perfect guest.
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.Written by

When Max tries to find agent 13, who is hiding in the tree, he knocks on the left tree (the furthest from the camera). The hole in the tree opens, but when the conversation ends, Max stands in front of the right tree. See more »
People who have seen the original Get Smart movies/series
PREPARE TO BE DISAPPOINTED. As a movie, it was funny, witty, and original (considering how few parodies are being put out for spy movies). I enjoyed it. But not as much as I would have had I not seen the previous classic Get Smart movies and series. This Get Smart movie was NOTHING at all like the originals. At all. Sure, they had the same names and numbers. That would be about it. Sadly. They tried to integrate the old inventive gadgets. They did alright. But they got everything else wrong.
Here's the blinding stuff not like the originals (if you even care): Agent 99 falls in love with Maxwell the first time she sees him. They always get along and 99 always follows Max.
Laraby is always stupid, but Max's friend. Not his antagonistic tormentor.
The Chief always trusts Max and knows that even while he's a klutz, he always comes through.
Smart...jeez, got just about everything off. He was never an analyst before he was an agent. He was/is their top agent. He was never fat. They don't give him his witty one liners either...gonna miss those.
As a movie, great. As an offspring from the original, an utter failure that makes me enjoy the predecessor that much more.
