Get Smart

2008

Peter Segal
Director

Update of Mel Brooks' 60s Spy comedy has a lot going for it - the funniest War Room scene since Dr. Strangelove for one. Feels like the script could have done with another once over. Carrell is fine and Arkin even better and James Caan has fun with spoofing a certain PoTUS. Reminded of Dan Aykroyd's Dragnet spoof somewhat.
