Review: Get Smart

Get Smart is not a bad movie. It's quite enjoyable actually. It's just not memorable at all, except for the stapler gag. I saw this movie only 2 days ago and I'm having trouble remembering what exactly I liked about it.

Steve Carell is a likeable guy and funny in this, but I feel I've seen this character before. Really, it's not that different from his character in "The Office" (= great show). I'd like to see Carell is more challenging roles. He was really good in Little Miss Sunshine. Anne Hathaway is as uninteresting as ever. I'm not getting her mass appeal. Alan Arkin and The Rock are good in their supporting roles.

Bill Murray's cameo was not funny and rather pointless.

I really have no idea what else to say about Get Smart. It's entertaining, but easily forgotten. Kinda like fastfood.. yummy, but not satisfying. A 3/5.

Trailer Park: Get Smart

I don't watch a lot of trailers online, so this feature will mostly feature (hee!) trailers that were attached to movies I've recently seen. Keep in mind that I live in The Netherlands, and that the trailers attached wont necessarily be the same as the ones in your country. In this post I'll review the trailers that were attached to Get Smart!

Disaster Movie
Really? Disaster Movie? It hasn't even been that long since Superhero Movie came out! Or Meet the Spartans! These movies need to be stopped. STAT!
To be viewed: Never

This looks interesting. Though I'm fairly tired of seeing Angelina Jolie (not in movies per se, but in general), Morgan Freeman and James McAvoy are cool and.. er.. I like assassins?
To be viewed: on DVD

The Accidental Husband
It still looks cute, but it worries me that this hasn't been released in the US yet.
To be viewed: on DVD

The Forbidden Kingdom
Ahhh Michael Angarano.. you're growing up to be a fine young man. You're already a good actor.. keep it up and you'll be one of the greats of your generation. But I'm gonna skip this movie, kay?
