I saw the movie this weekend as well and was totally shocked!!!...

It was actually very good...I had gone in with very low hopes of this being even semi-close to the classic "Get Smart," but it actually came pretty close.

Great performances by Carrel and Arkin -- what helped was they brought some of there own personality into the roles they portrayed.

The movie was reminiscent of the old TV show, updated with some of today's political views. Look for a great cameo of Bernie Kopel as an infuriated driver while Max is trying to get a car.

Overall 8 out of 10, can't wait to see it again.

The "Networking IT" Movie Buff!

So I just saw this movie, it was actually pretty good, it has some slow parts,
but overall it was mostly satisfying; I had a good time.

I liked this movie. However that wasn't Malcolm McDowell as Siegfried, that was Terrance Stamp. And he did do a great job.

What I like to know is if HeadRAZZ is still thinking that this movie was as bad as he originally thought...or maybe that "Love Guru" should have been his choice for worst movie of weak of June 20th.

What I would suggest is since all the releases this weekend are well above fresh at RT (Well above the 70% level) is that we posthumously give "Love Guru" worst movie of the weak as well as possibly worst movie of the summer (and possibly Mike Meyers career).

Your thoughts....

Ugh.    You're right.  I'll re-edit my post.

Do any of Terence Stamp's movies feature Beethoven's 9th? . . .

Now I'll tell you something that should get a Razzie, the "Get Smart" spin-off movie, "Bruce And Llyod: Out of CONTROL". Sure it was DVD release only, but man, it made "Wild Wild West" look like comedic gold!

I didn't think he was THAT bad, but if this flick gets anything, it should be Worst Screenplay. It could have been much, much better.
