Get Smart Synopsis

In the all-new action comedy “Get Smart,” Maxwell Smart (Steve Carell) is on a mission to thwart the latest plot for world domination by the evil crime syndicate known as KAOS.

When the headquarters of U.S. spy agency Control is attacked and the identities of its agents compromised, the Chief (Alan Arkin) has no choice but to promote his ever-eager analyst Maxwell Smart, who has always dreamt of working in the field alongside stalwart superstar Agent 23 (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson). Smart is partnered instead with the only other agent whose identity has not been compromised: the lovely-but-lethal veteran Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway). As Smart and 99 get closer to unraveling KAOS’ master plan—and each other—they discover that key KAOS operative Siegfried (Terence Stamp) and his sidekick Shtarker (Kenneth Davitian) are scheming to cash in with their network of terror. Given little field experience and even less time, Smart—armed with nothing but a few spy-tech gadgets and his unbridled enthusiasm—must defeat KAOS if he is to save the day.

Don Adams was a legend and his Maxwell Smart is a television icon. Turning that into a movie without the dearly departed Mr. Adams is a daunting task, but Warner Brothers took three steps in the right direction when they hired Steve Carell to take over for Adams as the shoe-phone lovin Smart.

Carell is a perfect stand-in for Adams, and not just because he bears an uncanny physical resemblance to Don. His style already has a lot in common with Adams’ own surreal brand of comic genius and hey, it doesn’t hurt that he’s an incredibly talented guy in his own right. Besides, consider the alternatives. Word is that before Carell landed the role both Jim Carrey and Will Ferrell were considered as possibilities to defile the cone of silence. CONTROL needs Steve Carell.

10 Movie Spies That Were Really, Really Bad At Their Jobs 10 Movie Spies That Were Really, Really Bad At Their Jobs
International men of mystery like James Bond may be pretty good at what they do. But for every suave, badass, and successful super spy we know and love in movies, there are those who, how shall we say this gently, really suck at their jobs.
