Get Watching

Get Smart
Get Smart is a spy parody made from the television series Get Smart. It was directed by Peter Segal. Get Smart grossed an average $39.2 million dollars on its opening weekend. So far its worldwide gross is $58,813,568. It is also the second #1 film of the summer to be adapted from a T.V. show. I thought Get Smart was one of the funniest movies I've seen in a while. I laughed throughout the whole film. Steve Carell was GREAT! Get Smart would be a film I would advise to see in theaters.

The Mission
Maxwell Smart (Steve Carell) is a top analyst for the agency CONTROL. Max has always dreamed of becoming a field agent, and even though he scores extremely high on the acceptance tests he is still denied the position as field agent by the Chief (Alan Arkin). When KAOS, an evil rival organization, attacks CONTROL's secret headquarter, the Chief grants Max the position of Agent 86. Max is partnered with Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway), an attractive kick-butt agent. Together they travel to Russia to find out how KAOS is getting access to nuclear weapons. Max and 99 plant explosives in the nuclear weapon/bakery plant, which buries the nuclear weapons in debris. the Chief then sends Agent 23 (Dwayne Johnson), another field agent to manage the clean-up. 23 reports that there is no sign of a nuclear weapons in the bakery, which causes CONTROl to to believe Max is a double agent. KAOS leader, Siegfried (Terrence Stamp), has threatened that he will release a nuclear bomb on Los Angeles during the Presidents visit unless they pay him $200 billion. Max hurries to inform the Chief, 99, and 23 about the bomb, but on his way he discovers the true colors of one of the agents as well as the bombs location. Will Max be able to save the lives of thousands as well as reveal the true identity of one of his co-workers?

Steve Carell was hilarious in Get Smart! He was the perfect choice for Maxwell Smart! Anne Hathaway, Dwayne Johnson, and Alan Arkin also played a little comedy in the film and got some action. Terrence Stamp played Siegfried, and Dalip Singh played Dalip (He was HUGE!). Terry Crews, David Koechner, James Cann, Bill Murray, Ken Davitian, Patrick Warburton, Masi Oka, and Ryan Seacrest also had major roles in the film.

Last night, the local news came on and reported that the new movie, “Get Smart” took in like 49 million dollars over the weekend. My wife and I looked at each other in disbelief. My question is…..with gas and food prices the way they are today, who the hell has 10 dollars (per ticket) to throw away on the crap Hollywood puts in the Theatres these days!? Two tickets with popcorn and a drink is going to cost you at least 30 dollars. To see…..”Get Smart”?

Get Smart looks pretty good over all though it seems like Steve Carell is veering toward an excess of slapstick humor
