So, I know Get Smart didn’t get great reviews, but, I have to say, I thought it was really funny! If you’re looking for a break from the disappointments that have been the past few Will Ferrell movies, then the newest Steve Carrell movie might be just the ticket.
Moreover, the humor is pretty clean the whole way through. Everyone in the theater was laughing out loud. Nate was literally laughing so hard that he was crying at several points and, yet, there were no strings of F-words needed or Super Bad-esque sex monologues required. Refreshing.
Sure, the movie is silly and has quite a bit of slapstick humor, but I really don’t see how people could not like it. Bear in mind that I have not seen the original sitcom, so, of course, that could have a huge bearing on my opinion.
Anyway, if you’re looking for a fun day at the theater, Get Smart is humor that neither you nor your kids will have to strain to enjoy.
