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

Hey, Maxine! Why don't you come over here and we'll play a little game I like to call: 'Let's Go to the Dog Show'! I put a collar on you and make you my bi... AH!

I think I really got inside head.
I am not proud of what I just did.

Director Peter Segal's version of Get Smart is not as bad as many people make it out be. Steve Carell put his own touch on the character of Maxwell Smart. At times Maxwell Smart does seem like a dumbed down version of Andy Stitzer (Carell's character from The 40-Year-Old Virgin) or Michael Scott (Carell's character from The Office), but that is how Carell works this role. Anne Hathaway does a good job as Smart's female counterpart Agent 99. She is tougher and smarter side of Smart. Alan Arkin and Dwayne Johnson do fine jobs in their roles but are not given a whole lot to do. Segal does a passable job of mixing the action and the comedy, and it works. You'll get some laughs out of it and it is a fun movie to watch.
