Get Smart: B

GET SMART, originally uploaded by wbmoviesgirl.

Scott and I saw the new Get Smart starring Steve Carell. I assumed the late Don Adams' original Maxwell Smart and Mike Myers' Austin Powers did pretty much did everything possible with the bumbling spy agent parody. The new Get Smart is a more subtle comedy compared with Mel Brooks' and Myers' blatant comedy shtick. While the new Get Smart still has some silly comedy, more of the humor is based on everyday personality conflicts. The new Maxwell Smart is basically another version of Carell's 40-Year-Old Virgin and The Office characters.

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