In Get Smart, Steve Carell brings the character of Maxwell Smart to the big screen. As the movie opens, the cold war is over, most think that the spy agency, Control, has been shut down and Maxwell Smart is an analyst. When Russian bad guys try to steal uranium to make nuclear weapons, Smart is made an agent, teamed up with Agent 99 and sets out to save the world (cue the closing song). I thought this was a fun action comedy with plenty of laughs and surprises. Light summer fare.
