Getting a Smart Choice With 'Get Smart'

June 18, 2008 09:52:47 GMT

In early June, a big fat panda has reached out to his dream of becoming a kung fu master and dominated the box office chart with the release of "Kung Fu Panda" in the theaters across the country. This coming Friday on June 20, a compulsively efficient analyst, Maxwell Smart, will also be living on his dream of being a secret agent for the spy company he works for in Warner Bros. Pictures' newest comedy movie "Get Smart". But, with another comedy film "The Love Guru" in hot pursuit to pose a tough challenge, can "Smart" rise to the occasion and win the box office battle like when Po beat Zohan from "You Don't Mess With the Zohan"?

Apparently, many of the movie critics believe so as they praise the Peter Segal-directed movie to be an entertaining comedy flick. Commenting on the movie adaptation to the hit 1960s spy parody television series of the same name, Village Voice's J. Hoberman simply called this movie as a pleasant surprise given that it is "more an all-purpose (and often quite funny) goofball action comedy". In similar tone, Jeff Otto of ReelzChannel.com saw it to be "breezy summer fun". In a more critical approval, Emanuel Levy from EmanuelLevy.Com lauded Steve Carell for his successful attempt in delivering the spy nerd and providing the goofy moments.
