Does anyone want to see it?

I don't.

I loved the TV show. When I was a kid, I use to have a thumbtack in my sneaker, and I'd pretend it was a telephone.

I loved Agent 99. My birthday is 9-9...so I felt we had a connection.

I see the previews and I just can't laugh at that stuff...I just find it stupid.

That's basically my sentiments as well. I myself am also a huge fan, but it's clear from what I've seen from various fan sites that they botched the script and don't care in the least. Perhaps I'll change my mind if they can gross $200 million, would you believe that?

"I find that pretty hard to believe."

"Would you believe $100 million?"

"No."

"How about a dollar and sixteen cents?"

I think the movie looks better than the show. I'm mean c'mon Don Adams (no disrespect RIP) vs. Steve Carell is no comparison. Carell is one of the funniest comedians in a long time IMO............

When I heard theyw ere making this I was like "NO!" - I was such a fan of the show as a kid (do they have DVD box sets out, I wonder?)

And the commercials are NOT FUNNY! So, no, they aint getting my green!

I am not even gonna dignify that Don Adams comment with an answer.

I want to see it. I'm with Motley...Steve Carrell is a funny guy. So I think it'll be a decent enough movie.

The old accelerating catchphrase trick. That's the second time that's happened this week.

I don't think I would want to see it.

I saw the previous Get Smart theatrical movie, way back in 1980. It was called "The Nude Bomb", and it was a huge disappointment. Other than Don Adams and Robert Karvelas (as Larrabee), there were no other original cast members. Even Agent 99 was not there!

I believe there was a TV-movie in the late-80's called "Get Smart, Again!", but I have not seen it.

Also a short-lived revival series in the mid 90s with Andy **** as Max's equally dimwitted son. Also flat from most respects.

Anyone else who's tried to tackle the material seems to forget the key: Max is competent as an agent, he just executes his work incompetently. That and he cares deeply about what he does. From every respect what we're about to see ignores both of these principles. But at least we now have the Time-Life DVD sets to remember the good times (best fan site on the web: <www.wouldyoubelieve.com>). That and Inspector Gadget episodes on YouTube for those that want the next best thing.

I watched Get Smart (2008) last week. It's a hit-and-miss spy-spoof starring Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway, and Dwayne Johnson.
Veteran actors Alan Arkin, James Caan, Bill Murray, and Terence Stamp appear in supporting roles.

I have to admit i'm not familiar with the Mel Brooks created TV series from the late 60s, so i can't compare the two.
The '08 film adaptation is generally dumb, but there are some decent laughs along the way.

Love this scene : www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceIwFEkaLPY

The Mel Brooks/Buck Henry series which ran between 1965 and 1970 is a small masterpiece of comedy. You should definitely check it out. Don Adams and Barbara Feldon were perfectly cast, and the writing was uniformly sharp.
