Tonight, though, I got to see a movie. A friend and I went to see Get Smart. It was nothing spectacular but I did enjoy it.
I never watched the Get Smart television series very much. I was pretty young when it was on -- a mere babe in arms in fact (HA!) -- and it never made a lot of sense to me. This movie made a little more sense to me.
Steve Carrell and Anne Hathaway were great. I loved seeing Alan Arkin -- one of my favorite comic actors of all time. The cameo by Bill Murray was, well, quirky. And James Caan made an interesting president.
The script was okay. Could have been funnier. The actors did well with what they had to work with. There were a lot of dry spells in the script but the actors keot us engaged.
If you are of a younger generation and do not remember the TV series, I really doubt you will enjoy the movie. But if you remember the TV show, the movie will bring some good laughs and memories of times gone by.
