Get Smart Review

I liked it. I didn't love it. I wasn't blown away. But I did laugh. And I did not feel that I wasted either my time or my money. So I guess that means I give it about a 3-star rating.

All the actors did a fine job. I was particularly charmed by The Rock, actually. And I usually find Steve Carrell (how do you spell that?) entertaining. Jason strangely liked Anne Hathaway's performance--and he usually can't stand her. I usually find her cute and disliked her in this. Maybe it's a man-woman thing.

Anyway, they used the appropriate key lines and goofy gadgets from the original series and updated many of them effectively. I'm calling it a successful summer relaxation film.

Get Smart looks okay overall... but Steve Carell seems to be veering more and more toward a predictable, slapstick-style humor
